So Michael, you had to have hit the pig trail Hwy23 if you went to Eureka Springs. That is the road that my life was changed forever. I was hit just a mile south of Hwy16 & Hwy23. Man I miss that area of riding, I miss it all together.
Glad you guys had some fun. I wish that I knew that you were going, I would have told you about a super fun road called 123. It is amazing. 45 deg winding staircases. I was dragging knee up and down them. One fellow rider was like , I have seen someone drag knee going down but never up. Ah man, the good times.

also we were having dinner at the cliff house on 7. while standing outside next to the guardrail there was a BIG birdhouse along the edge, bout 10 feet away and 12 feet up. craploads of birds going and coming, while standing there we hear this noise, turned and a big hawk had come up from under the birdhouse from the vally and grabbed a bird from off the birdhouse, no . amazing. My eyes caught him just as he had the bird in his claws and was peeling away. badass.
am looking at my calender to check when i can go back again

seems i remember that area. after all the 180 degree turns in the forrest it opens up for a little ways and comes to an intesection to the left or right. I remember sitting there waiting on the 3 slow pokes to catch up.
U gonna take the Z up there sometime and run the roads again?
Was thinkng the wifes miata would be a blast.

Coming back thru that on the return we had a v-max guy with us misjudge a 180, he slid off the road sideways down the embankment. was a trying to get his bike back up the hill but no dings.
later Brian.

Cool, the 2 minute mark on the video looks like some of 74 just before 123. 123 has some white asphalt on it that is very different from all the other in the area. It is very noticable. Not too many people know the stretch I am speaking of. Some maps it doesn't even show up on beleive it or not.
