Couple Yankees With Winter Riding Blues - Defecting To The Confederacy!

Hi Ya'll,
As the title says, we have the riding blues up here in Northern Minnesota, so C-Zulu and I are planning a cannonball run from Minnesota aka Yank-istan, down towards the Springdale, AR area with a pickup truck full of dual sports for some riding (XR650R and KTM 950 SE). We're not sure if we'll get the Trans Am Trail maps in time, any recommendations on routes in the area? We figure 4 days of riding total, 2 days one way, and 2 the other before we have to pack it up and head back home.

Wow, talk about ask you shall receive! Thanks again for the link to the off road gpx files. I think from the master map below we should have no problem staying busy for a few days! Thanks again! And of course, if any of you want to meet up for a ride or a beer in the evenings, shoot us a PM.

Have fun Jesse. Probably not able to meet up. Hope the weather is great for ya. Besides, my GS would be out of it's element on the trails. Check out Oark, Arkansas store if you are in that area. Down home food with good pie. Not as good of Pie as Rustic Cafe, IMO.
