I did a pre-ride today with my wife and the road was awesome, if everyone wants to we can stop in this tiny little town called Bixby and eat at the general store. They have excellent sandwiches and the service was great for all the motorcyclists.

Here is a pic of the general store.

Wish I could. It sounds like a fun time to meet new people and ride some nice roads.  I'll be hitting Little Rock Thursday night, Hattiesburg Friday night and then back again Saturday and Sunday.  Hope the weekend goes off without a hitch for you all!

I'm giving it some thought.  I'm going off-roading in CO thru the 5th and I'd like to do the AR roads before winter and not sure I can do them all.

Arkansas has some excellent roads and I will heading down there in October for a weekend of riding.  I love it so much down there that I have been down there five times between this year and last year.  The roads here in Missouri are also worth the trip, so if you have the opportunity I will try to make it worth your while.  I might not be Bobby Flay, but I can hold my own when it comes to smoking animal flesh.

What are there for camping areas down there and close to the action?

Are you looking to camp close to the Lake of the Ozarks (30 minutes northwest of my house) or would you like to find a spot close to my house?  You can also pitch a tent in my back yard (you won't be the only one).  My yard is fairly big so there will be plenty of room for you to set up, you can also park your bike in my garage and use one of my bathrooms to get ready if you would like.
