Myself and 2 other C14 owners from the Little Rock area are planning a Memorial Day Weekend ride.
We plan to eat breakfast at the Cracker Barrell in Bryant on Saturday morning.
Then take 5 to 7 and ride north to Ola and then take 10 to Booneville, then follow 23 north to Eureka Springs via the pig trail.
We will spend the night in the Eureka Springs area on Saturday night.

Sunday We plan on heading over to Mtn Home, Push Mtn Rd, Mt View, then evetually make it back to Bryant late Sunday evening.

Anyone else interested in riding along just let us know.

Thanks,
c14-Pilot

I just did almost that exact route last weekend.  Of course it rained on me all day friday, but I still had fun.  I would think there should be some takers.  Great riding in Arkansas.

Is there a time and location to meet on Sunday morning.  I would love to come down and ride for the day.  If I could meet you guys in Mountain Home that would work out great.

Not sure about the time but I will get with Henry or JP and see if we can come up with an estimate of when we'll make it to Mountain Home Sunday.

Sounds good.  I am hoping that my tires are delivered in time to make the trip on Sunday.  I know my rear tire wouldn't make it there and back.

How does meeting at 10:00 a.m. in Mountain Home sound to You guys?
We will be coming from Eureka Springs on 62 across to Mtn Home.
We will need to decide on a place to meet.

If I can get a rear tire in time I will be coming in on 201 since I will be coming from straight north.

Jeremy,

If I remember right, 201 runs through Mtn View down and over to 341 "Push Mtn Rd".
We could meet You some where along 201 or at the North end of "Push Mtn Rd".
My number is 501-626-0796.

Is 10 a.m ok for a meeting time, I didn't know how far You live from Mtn View.

thanks,
Henry

I can be down in Mountain Home in about 2 hours from where I live and even less if there is no traffic.  That early on a Sunday I will probably make pretty good time.  I don't want to cramp you guys, time wise, so whatever time you will be in the area I can make it.

I won't be able to make it, I just talked to my wife and she already saw the UPS truck go by and they didn't stop at my house.  No new tires, no ride.  And none of my local dealers have a PR2 or PR3 for the C14 in stock.

I don't think UPS will be delivering tomorrow due to the holiday, but if my tires do show up I will let you guys know.
