Attended this rally last year one of the best of the year. The food was awesome and all the money goes to a great cause.

More of the laid back type of crowd. Not a rowdy Harley type crowd. Good company, good food, great riding all for a good cause. My two favorite rally's are this one and the Swamp Scooter rally in Lafayette, La.

This rally was called the Chain Gang Rally for many years. It is no longer sponsored by the Chain Gang as such but all are welcome.
Last years attendees were treated to a tour of a private car and bike museum in Mena. It was incredible to say the least. Many restored cars, trucks , motorcycles and related items. Old gas pumps, coal oil pumps and assorted stuff for many years gone by. Many mustangs and cushman scooters along with old Harleys. Several made by the factory muscle cars are one of a kind.
This alone is more than worth the price of the rally.
One building of this museum is the old Studerbaker building designed and built by Frank Loyd Wright in 1953.
I can't wait to go back this year. The museum tour is included in this years rally also.
This will be my 14th year for this one.
See ya there....

Well, it is getting a little closer and I guess I need to pre register so I can get one of their neat tee shirts.

Hey Steve. My plan is to head up early in the week to ride some of the great roads in the area. If you arrive early maybe we can get some riding in.
