Anyone know of a good source of maps in the Mena area? Would like as much detail as possible for DS use. Trying to go up in a couple of weeks for some riding, never been to that area, company welcome. Mostly during the week, retired and don't really like dodging the quads on the weekends. Thank you.

This map of the Ouachita NF is probably the most detailed I know of: http://theforeststore.com/product/ou...tional-forest/

Also, free MVUM maps can be downloaded off of the Ouachita National Forest website here: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detailfull/ou...448&width=full

In all the years I've ridden AR, sport bikes have been a rare site. When spotted, it's usually a squid in city traffic, almost always in warmer weather when flip flops are in season.

There are a few around here, but I think they are pretty much done for the year. Although I did see a guy last week on a crotch rocket wearing shorts and a big puffy hoodie that had almost crawled up to the top of his helmet.

I put 400 miles in the Ozarks on Saturday. Beautiful fall foilage going on right now. Y'all better get out and see it before all the leaves are off the trees.

City traffic? Where the hell are you riding, Little Rock????

Kinda funny, back when I was stuck in TX, groups as big as 30 of us sport bikers would come up to AR for a w/e. Never much cared for the large groups though. Hated waiting for slow dudes to catch up. But there were plenty of sport bikes out and about where we ride. Of course there's tons of cruisers as well. Still can't understand why those guys want to ride on roads like 123 and Push Mtn. on bikes that are ill designed for that kind of riding

Sad thing is, when I finally moved back here I didn't even own a sport bike.

Too cold. Don't ride in winter. Waiting for summer for proper riding gear.
