We'll be creating an Ozark regional motorcycle map

Big news! We will be riding the Ozarks shortly and hope to have a regional map out by the summer. Alot of you asked for one and we listened. Info will follow in my vendor thread.
Soooo many great roads in this part of the country!
Thanks everyone.

the best thing to do is to pick one and go..some are great, and some not so much..there are thousands of miles of great dirt roads through out the state...as for a source, probably some of the locals who ride in their region. We can provide some gpx files if you want.

looking for some must do ones.
we'll ride and rate every paved road but not all the dirt ones.
if we did the map would never get done.

Bill, it is fertile riding country for sure. What geographic parameters are you considering? Northern Arkansas and Southern Missouri (The Ozarks)? Or the Ouachita and Kiamichi also? I know the line has to been drawn somewhere (kinda like the Hill Country map).

Don't tell em anything Doc. We're trying to keep this place a secret.

Nothing to see here, move along.

I kind'a think you're kidding... but I certainly understand your sentiment!!! Sometimes getting "publicized" is not a good thing. Look what happened to Deal's Gap, aka the "Tail Of The Dragon". Got publicized, began to be a "thing"... and now it's a freakin' zoo.

Seems to me this site works great in passing the word among geniune enthusiasts in regards to great places to ride in the Ozarks.

THere are days when Push MTN and 123 have that circus atmosphere. Seems like Push's popularity has died off a bit thankfully. I know the photographer stopped hanging out there taking pics.

indeed. like texas hill country map, we'll go for the meat of the best riding areas and include those. there will always be great fringe roads that don't make the cut because of size constraints, but that's the compromise with mapping.

obviously north of 40 to the state line is prime area.
then there is the riding west of little rock into OK.
then there is the riding in MO from the state line north to say RT 60
if i would take an educated guess, i'd say all of that will be on the map.
as for the mark twain NF and the mtns heading NE towards st louis, tough to say.

on our first exploration riding trip, court based from little rock and rode out on day trips.
i think on this trip he and justin are riding north and staying different places.
i know they are east of all these storms.
