Arkansas ride, March 14-18 2010

KSU from HAK (Starbucks at 59N/1960) at 7:15 am on March 14 (Sunday), return to Houston on March 18.

Be there early enough for an informal meet and great, and have a full tank.

Average temps for March are low 40’s to high 60’s, so dress accordingly. If weather for the week in Arkansas goes to complete prior to ride, I reserve the right to cancel and notify everyone.

General plan is to ride some good roads and see some scenery along the way... slight chance we'll remember to take a couple pics...


Carry what you’ll need for 5 days. This means clothes and shoes for around the hotel/restaurant at night as well. Deodorant is appreciated by all..

If you haven’t done a long ride, check this out for pointers:

http://www.visi.com/~dalebor/index.html#contents

Bring your bike in good condition… should go without saying.

Pace of ride will be dependant on the roads, weather and group abilities. Figure moderate to brisk in spots, occasional spirited stretches. Triple digits will be kept to minimum; average straightaway speeds will be 70-80. We’ll take turns leading just to spice it all up a bit.

I stop every hour or so for stretching, drinks, bathroom breaks. I like to eat so we stop for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If one person needs fuel, we all gas up.

Rooms are up to you; the earlier you reserve, better the rates.
I’ll PM the hotel names and numbers. A 2-bed room averages out to $75 a night.
Make arrangements for roomies via PM please. There has been mention of sleeping on the floor to save costs…. that is your call.

I would recommend that you reserve rooms as “refundable”, just in case.

PM me any emergency contact info so I can put it all on one sheet before hand, and make copies.

Here are the planned routes... total 1648 miles from HAK back to 290... approx. 150 Interstate miles total.

http://tinyurl.com/arkansas-day-1-rev2

Over night in Hot Springs, approx 430 miles thereabouts

http://tinyurl.com/day2arkansas

Over night in Eureka Springs, 367 miles

http://tinyurl.com/day3arkansas

Over night in Ozark, 232 miles

http://tinyurl.com/arkansas-day-4-rev1

Overnight in Bossier City, 293 miles

http://tinyurl.com/arkansas-day-5-rev1


326 miles, back to 290 on NW side, can split off when we cross 59 or 45


Sign up list; I am limiting this to 10 or so. First come first serve, and alternates move up if others cancel. If you have a room mate, note on list
  • Texlurch – ZX-12R (have roomy)
  • TXOUTLAW – TL1000R (have roomy)
  • Mic – Sprint S/T
  • Tiger bait - Busa
  • Viffer06 - ? TBD
  • dudewhrsmybike – ZX-10R

Never tried the monkeybutt stuff. I use gold bond all the time anyway. Never have any chafing issues.

How much record time on the cam? I was thinking about trying to pick up a cheap flash based vid camera that I could just tape somewhere and not worry about. I could probably try and find a way to mount the camera I have too.
