Recommended Posts

Yessir, I'll be there! Really looking forward to this trip.

Do folks generally show up earlier in the week?

I know of some peeps that are planning to be there all week. I'm planning on arriving Monday, 9/21/15.

Definitely not riding out. While I would do it, I would much rather ride in a comfortable cage and save my butt and tires for the fun stuff. And also prior commitments mean having to leave Saturday and get back home post haste.

No, because the Italian Mistress will be jealous... The Germans and Italians don't get along so well sometimes...

Wow, great to hear some of you are coming for the first time!

The roads in and around Harrison are fantastic. They being said, they do eat tires. If you're coming for a full week of spirited riding, new rubber would be advised. All the roads are chip-seal, and while grip is fantastic, it does wear tires out fast.

There is a shop in town that does tires and other repairs if needed.

I'm planning on arriving the 20th or 21st. I haven't been able to get much riding done the last year and a half despite moving to Colorado. :(

If you're bringing a porsche, I'll bring a WRX. :P We can chase each other with seatbelts.

Lol, Nope! I hate leading, I refuse to do it even when it's just Fred and I. I hadn't even thought about changing the avatar... I'll get on that!

I haven't finalized my trip plans just yet, but I'll be riding around Harrison for a few days on my way out to Montana. I lived in Harrison a few years ago, so I can't wait to introduce the VFR to the Ozarks.

Here's an Ozarks tip: always be on the look for wildlife. Almost pasted this turkey with my Nighthawk last year on Hwy 123.

Was just there on Monday. 16 west of Clinton to Sand gap used to be a great road not anymore. Horrible patch jobs and pot holes. It's marginal at best. However 74 west of Jasper to Ponca wow that was fantastic. The 15mph stuff was fun too. Did not do 123 or push mountain. Did not get over to the pig trail or magazine mountain. Seems Arkansas is having the same road issues colorado is having they need work.

It's a shame about 16. They've always kind of ignored that section. One year I remember they "resurfaced" it by dumping about 3" of rock chips on the entire road and left it for the cars to pack in. It was impossible to ride.

Yep...AR does not have much DOT funding and there is very little traffic on 16 to justify resurface. I am now basically doing 2 routes.

Down middle and lower 123, up 103 to 215 over to 23. Up the pigtrail and then back on 16(different section than you mentioned) or 74.

Route two is 14 to Push, play on push and run up and down 9. Play on push again and then 14 back home.

Please do...it would be my pleasure!

And there is room to pass on Push and 123. They are like racetracks through the forests!

For those who are not familiar with the area...when I say there is very little traffic on 16, here is an example.

Year before last one of the riders in the group had a flat on 16. Guessing it took us 45 minutes to an hour to repair. Not a single car passed us during the repair! The riding is different here than in the Smokies or Rockies.
