    Charlie led a great ride on the "Jasper Loop". The group was so big and the roads so dusty (and I am Magoo, after all), that I didn't see much of the front half of the group. It was a super day for a ride and great fun. My helmet cam took about 250 shots, I sorted it down to 26. Click HERE for a link to the slide show.

    Below is a taste.

    I still can't believe that the mini-van crew was even on that road...sheesh.

    True, but the young kid in the front seat was having a ball laughing hard at poor (but hot) mom for taking them down that road!

    Excellent pics of The Big Ride.

    WOW... TC and Shelly DO actually get out on their bikes!!!! Amazing.

    Charlie:

    Looks like you had an EXCELLENT route picked out. Some of those roads look fantastic for me n' Honey Buns.

    I'm sure we can find someone to ride you. Send me your email address and I'll publish a "Riders Wanted" ad for you in the Little Rock Craigslist.

    Yup! Mom was a hottie! It is a shame cause further up the road we passed the turn to Erbie Campground. She missed the right she should have taken at the low water bridge that crosses Cove Creek.

    That was some kinda fun. Thanks Charlie for putting together a great route. That Cr-57 was great. Not to mention the horseback riders. You can't imagine how bummed out I was when I got home and plugged my video cam into my computer and found I had not videoed a thing all day. I should have had some great video of the horseback riders cluster there when we passed. The only thing that I can think of was the storage card was not making contact. I think I know how to ensure everything is hunky dory in the future.

    That was a great lunch at the Low Gap Cafe or whatever it was called. First time I have had the pleasure of eating there. Awesome soup and cheesey rolls. It was also a first that I have ridden with Ted and Shelly and met Lary for the first time. Shelly definitely added some class to that crew.

    I wish I had more pictures to share. The stills I shot aren't worth posting. I am glad Magoo and Charlie took some photos. Great route, great group and great weather all add up to a Great Time! I had a ball. :norton

    Really? I live in Benton and ride those areas you mentioned (off of the tarmac) on a regular basis. I hate having to ride the tarmac to get to those areas. I don't recall ever seeing you there though. I guess maybe you were too busy at home crying? Anyway, if you act nice we may invite you to tag along with us sometime. But keep in mind we don't allow cry babies in our group! :rofl

    Hey all, it's been a while since I've been on here. I've been doing my part in reducing the population of the forest rats! Looks like you have been on some pretty good rides. Craig you've gotta show me that hill climb where you lost your bag. Looks like a lot of fun.

    Hey guys, new to the site and fairly new to the dirt riding gig. I rode over to Potosi, MO last month and did some good riding. Wanting to do more exploring around NWA and SWM.

    Hoping to meet some new friends out on the trails.

    Welcome.

    There are lots of group rides that go on as well as camping in AR. Just watch the website here for the information. There is not much going on that I know of until next riding season.

    There are 3 rallies/group rides going on in the spring that already have dates set. Some dates are tentative but it will give you an idea. SLAP on May 17-19, arkansas 500 in April, and the Christian Motorcyclist Association fast lane rally will be April 18-21. Most have threads started.

    I think there is another thread for the SLAP and the Hillbilly rally roaming around here somewhere as well as day rides posted occasionally.

    Thanks Fastlane,

    Just checked out some of the links. The AR500 and SLAP look pretty cool! I may try to do a few of the (organized) rides next year. And of course, I'm always up for impromptu rides on the weekends.

    Every other weekend, I have 4 days off work so I get to goof off a little more than most. :clap

    I'm always up for a good adventure! - on or off pavement.

    What Doc is so tactfully saying is that this thread is just for posting ride reports. Setting up impromptu rides (and regular BS) is best found on the NWA BS thread: [URL="http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=447282"CLICK ]HERE[/URL] :clap
