I dunno about those Ozarks. There are some crazy people who don't like motorcycles. Got this pic last time I was out there.

Stay away or there may be a hanging.

This is obviously a ploy of Barnone's to get people to shift attention away from the Gap and look at other riding areas by trying to give false info. Mr._Gone and bluestar are being genuine, nothing worth riding in AR.

This, ride AR at your own peril. Lynching motorcycles is in high fashion.

I used to sell them and have had quite a bit of seat time on cross bikes. Those things have incredible handling.

Besides we haven't had our pic made on the Dragon riding the Harley yet. In fact she missed the last photo op on the Tiger as well...

I heard there was some good roads down in Florida. Something about a Tail Of The Manatee.

I'll be there on the 17th and 18th, feel free to PM me some of these roads that you guys swear to secrecy. I'm a pussy though, I need nice, smooth surfaces. I'll be staying at the Two Wheel Inn on 17th, and making my way to Boone the 18th.

Ozello Dragon, Trails End, East Gobbler Trail, Lake Lindsey, etc, there are several close to us that are fun to ride.

Florida has some of the best motorcycle roads in the country....in Jan, Feb, and March....

Weird. I'd heard of the Hub before, and when I was in the area last week I happened to ride past it, so I turned off and took a look around. Looked like it'd been abandoned, almost like it had gone out of business or something. Weeds everywhere and no one around except a few empty parked cars. Guess most of their business probably happens on the weekends, I suppose. Looked like a place that has probably seen quite a few big, rowdy parties.

I miss all those flat boring roads over in AR so much that I'm moving back in a couple weeks before I have a seizure from riding all the primo roads out here in NC/TN/SC. The Gap is awesome, The Ozarks suck!

NW Arkansas was cool, but the best part was watching my buddy wonder around the store for 45 minutes looking for the beer because he was to proud to ask anyone that worked there for help. Then the look on his face as the clerk was trying to explain "dry county" was priceless as well. Not sure he ever got it, just realized that he was'nt getting beer from them.
