You did include the Trans Am Trail, didn't you?

That really shouldn't be on the map as such. There are a few notable sections of it that are often included in group rides in the area though, just don't label them as sections of the TAT.

Rename it "Trans Arkansas Trail" and carry on...

That has already been taken. Runs north and South.

Agreed. There are no good riding roads in Arkansas. Please carry on, and do Illinois Motorcycle Map...

Question

What's up guys! I live just a few mile from Jasper and I've been exploring this area fairly extensively. I'm throwing around the idea of writing a small brochure or pamplet like thingy for the 4 or 5 routes I've worked out. I have a few more in the works, but I want to focus on short to semi long routes centering around the Jasper area of Newton County. Don't want to step on anyone's toes, I'm sure you guys have put a lot of work into this map. What do ya guys think?

2nd revision of our new Ozark regional map.
KC is in the upper left, SL is in the upper right
Tulsa on the left and Little Rock the lower right.

This map has more G rated roads than any of our other maps.
There is amazing riding to be had.
Should be available within the month! Stay tuned for updates.

i do all the dirt road work for Butler and we're having a hell of time adding dirt roads to this map because the area is so large and thus the map is zoomed out so far that i don't have enough room to label the dirt roads.
also where i would label a dirt road between G rated paved roads i have about an inch to work with in space and the road names change so much vrs the longer single name western dirt road we have.

you guys have sooooo many packed in tight paved roads (it's unreal!) there is just no room. out west our paved roads are fewer and farther apart so i have plenty of open space to add dirt roads.

we might add some dirt roads in our G1 detail boxes (especially the big one in the lower right corner),
but i'm not sure at this moment what will happen. sorry all you ozark dirt fans.
