    When: April 20-22 2018
    Hub Motel Contact Number: 870-743-4062

    All makes, models and types of motorcycles are welcome to attend.

    Okay folks, its time to once again schedule a dual sport and/or road ride in the heart of the Ozark Mountains between Harrison and Jasper Arkansas on some of THE BEST paved, dirt and gravel county and national forest roads and trails in the entire Midwest region!

    This event is very loosely "organized" in that we set a weekend for it to occur and you show up ready to ride! There is no entry fee, no dinner, no T-Shirts, no prizes, etc. just plenty of superb riding in the Ozarks.

    I will schedule this with Debbie at The Hub
    so she sets aside a block of rooms for us to use. These are "first come, first served" with an event rate for this so be sure to mention the Hillbilly Dual Sport ride to get it.

    Scooters restaurant is right next to The Hub for breakfast and dinner. The Hub also has a fire pit so we can sit around and shoot the breeze and tent camping sites are on the grounds too. An air compressor and bike washing is available too.

    Food is also available in Jasper and Harrison, both of which are about 10-15 miles away.

    Newton County is a "dry" county but fortunately a mere 1.5 miles north on HW 7 there is a brand new liquor store and two gas stations.

    If you have never been to NW Arkansas to ride I highly recommend it.

    If you plan to attend, please post up here so we can get an idea of about how many will attend.

    More info posted as it becomes available.

    Gasoline is available at the following locations but not all will have premium. Most will offer "real" 100 percent no-alcohol regular. If you are low on gas and pass up a place that has it, shame on you because the next location may be 30 or more miles away!
    Jasper
    Ponca
    Deer
    Mt. Judea
    Dover
    Compton
    Piercetown
    Kingston
    St. Paul
    Combs
    Cass
    Oark

    Please note that here in Arkansas we don't spoil the natural beauty by putting up cell phone towers so cell reception can be spotty or none at all!

    That would be nice. I think I still have stuff that hasn't dried out from the combination of Hillbilly and Slap. LOL

    So, for those that don't normally ride in the area, will there be some dual sport tracks available?
