??? Why do you avoid Arkansas. There is some great riding up here in the Ozarks unless you are the flat lander type. I was born and raised in Texas and there are no hills like here that I know of.Have fun at the rally.

I agree with Hammer there is some great riding in the Ozarks. But..... there are parts of Arkansas that you will hear dualing banjos and men squilling like pigs so if you hear that just ride in the opposite direction!! Bikes Blues and BBQ is a great rally but the town is just running out of room to hold it they need to find a bigger location and with it being a college town makes it better

i grew up right next to the state and have spent plenty of time in it. everything about it is subpar. it's ugly, backwoods, full of dumb people, backwards in every way possible, smells bad...........the only fun thing to do in Arkansas is to leave. i did spend most of my summers on a lake in that state so that holds a special place in my heart, but everything else about the state i hate. some people call it the armpit of America.

Doesn't sound like it to me either,just means more beer for the rest of us. Too bad some people are so narrow minded.------ just one of my opinions, I have lots of em.

from spending half my life in and around that state, that makes it an experienced observation. not narrow-mindedness.
to me it sounds like it makes you one of them :D

Yes there are places in Arkansas I would not live in but as far as riding goes you can't beat the Ozarks.

I have attended BB&BBQ since 2007. Love it. I live in Arkansas, just 30 min north of the Fayetteville. Moved here 20yrs ago(by choice) from Mississippi. Some of the BEST Motorcycle riding in the US. Great people and towns here in NW Arkansas.

Bikes Blues and BBQ is a fun rally... And great roads for riding... Great food everywhere. This rally is next week. This year the bikers don't have to share the road with the 2,000+ Corvettes that are usually in Eureka Springs on the same 4 days for their Corvette Weekend Event.
But me, I am a biker and Corvette owner. When they are on seperate weekends it's a 2 week vacation for me..
To all that are going, Ride Safe!
