Just got back from a 4 day 1100 mile ride through some of the best roads and scenery! Went north out of Dallas past Texoma, on into Oklahoma on 75/69. Turned east onto 43 at Atoka, and spent some time riding around Sardis Lake. Continued to Talihina to get onto the Talimena scenic byway, which becomes 88 in Arkansas. What a gem of a road to ride!

From Mena, took the 71 up through Fort Smith and Fayetteville. North into Missouri had us chasing the twisties on 86, then back into Arkansas to follow 7 all the way to Hot Springs. Texarkana through to Dallas was much less interesting, but needed the fast way back.

Everyone with access to those areas to ride already knows how lucky they are. Saw some great fall color as well, and the weather was fine. The Connie loved every mile, and the '55 rear tire was a turn hugging beast.  8)
