KS to (Eureka Springs) AR?

I'm doing some brainstorming here. My brother rides Harleys and we've never really ridden together for long distance. So I'm thinking about seeing if we could cruise down to eureka springs this summer. I've never been there and I doubt he has. I know nothing about the place, but heard it's nice and so I'm looking for some info and advice from you guys that have traveled there. I guess since he rides a Harley we'd have to stick to the fun blacktop backroads.
We'd be riding to Eureka Springs from NE KS.
Fun roads, sites to see there, and along the way?
Thanks

Thumb Fun Roads

I don't think it's possible to ride on blacktop around Eureka without being on a fun road.

There aren't any bad roads in NW AR. The Victorian Inn is pretty inexpensive, quite adequate, and clean. The Bavarian Inn is considerably nicer, but still quite reasonable in the off season AND, they have a great German restaurant right there so you can eat, drink and be merry and walk to your room. There are some nice places in the heart of town that run good deals during the week. ES is a wonderful place to visit. If they'd just run that trolly till later in the evening.......

Consider Hwy 187 that connects US 62 out of NWA with Hwy 23 going into Eureka Springs. The road is twisty and takes you over the only suspension bridge in Arkansas. It looks like a mini-Golden Gate.
