Bikes EVERYWHERE

I am in Arkansas right now and I can't look anywhere without seeing a pack of bikes. Mostly cruisers but I have seen a 636 riding with a pack of harley's.

I saw a pack of those Can Am 3 wheelers taking these Arkansas hills. They looked odd but a pack of 15-20 Can Am's is pretty sexy. Saw a few T-rex's as well.

I was driving here and all I could think the whole time was... I wish I made this trip on a bike.


The roads are really curvy and the roads are all smooth. The landscape is gorgeous. You can be driving through trees and hit a clearing and see down the hill sides with trees and livestock.

Its really amazing. I hear the weather in houston right now sucks but here is 74 degrees and its amazing.

If you ever want to take a long ride and hit some good roads it seems like Arkansas is the place to be.

Happy riding,
Ben

You just now realized people ride in other states?

And the roads are more exciting then the straight highways or highway loops Houston offers?

Anyone ever do rides out of state?

I know of few of us on here have. Easy to forget some people grew up locally in Houston and havent been outside.

I'd organize something but most people arent comfortable riding those long distances.

Mr. Matt that is a good idea. I think you guys should do it. Anyone who is fearful of it don't be. I drove for miles and didn't see any cars or anything like that. State troopers but just don't haul .

Take the back roads and you won't see another human being or cop for at least 1 hour intervals.

What city in Arkansas? Arkansas does have some awesome roads...right now I am in Lenoir City TN (knoxville) and the roads here are very nice too, as is the weather. I had to turn the heat on last night! Harleys galore! lol This is an entry into Tail of the Dragon.
