Guys, 3090 is NOT a road, nor is it something to be afraid of. It's got a lot of turns, and riders must not try to blast into each and every one of them. Slow in, look thru the turns and then gentle throttle as you are exiting the turn. People who race thru 3090 without being able to see thru the turns are rolling the dice.

There was an interesting stat I heard a very long time ago. I don't remember it exactly, but it was essentially that in some 90% of single motorcycle crashes the riders are not exceeding the capabilities of the bike. I.e., a rider is going thru a turn, gets scared and stands the bike up and rides right off the road. Or, the rider insists on using the read brake to slow the bike down. silly stuff.

Maxgs i agree with you,you have to have a good feel for your bike and having the know about the road is an important thing.

3090 is not that great of a road compared to 335,336,337 or ANY road in Arkansas
But for around here it is one of the better roads
