2013 ARKANSAS 500 April 12-14


The Arkansas 500 is a Dual Sport Motorcycle ride (not race) that spans three days and travels over 500 miles of back roads in the Natural State. Arkansas offers the most diverse sites and experiences for dual sport riders in the Midwest, including beautiful wooded forest, large hill climbs, incredible water crossings and more back roads that can be ridden in 10 years! Get on your bike and ride the 3rd Annual Arkansas 500 April 12-14, 2013 with like-minded people out for a great weekend.
Proceeds from the event are given to Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge (a nonprofit org) to help them care for all the rescued animals. Check their site at www.turpentinecreek.org.
A sag wagon is provided (pack light) and will arrive ahead of the riders each day.
There is a $60 donation/entry fee.
In previous years riders have attended from 7 states! Iowa, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Missouri, Tennessee, and Kansas.

Go To www.arkansas500.com
The site will be updated soon and tracks/routes posted by March 25.
If you would like to save your spot now go to www.arkansas500.com and choose the sign up tab.

Reservations have been made at Mulberry Mountain for the Friday night. Campsites have been reserved for the group. Let me know if you need electricity so I have a count. They have no cabins left. Please don't bother calling them.

If you must stay in a room instead of camping check out the following:
Remember, these places are 20 minutes south of our camp site. You will need to return to camp site by 8am to ride with the group. Please plan accordingly.

Try here for a room 20-25 minutes away in Ozark.

WOW Scotty! Your timing this year is just about perfect!
@ April 1 my brother Bob (remember him?) is coming to ride a route with me I call ReTARTed: 2000 miles of Ar, Ok, Tx and Mo.

Bearing we have no problems on ReTARTed Bob and I should be able to hook up in ES on April 12 at your cat house.

I'll see if I can spark any interet in the Local DS Crazies about joining in too.

Hope this works for us, your ride is a BLAST!

devro

Oh, and you got the date wrong on "Rider Info" It's Friday the 12th. Dang it man!

Jim,
What bike are you riding in your ReTARTed ride, and for the Arkansas 500? I'm hopiing to follow you for a bit around the time of the Wudi Ride, April 5-7, and might just come up early.

Question Questions?

Me & another Tiger rider are just starting our planing. What are the normal temps that time of year? How rough is the route? For reference, I've ridden Warloop Rd on the TAT. Thanks for doing this ride.

I looked up averages for that time of year. Looks like mid 60's to mid 70's for highs. Not a lot of rain either. Looking forward to this one.

Sorry guys, I've been out for a few days. Back now. The weather could be anywhere from cold and rainy to warm and sunny. As the date approaches we will all know more.
