    I see one of the reasons for Byrd's is upped bathroom game. Have they added to the life vests in the rafters?
    probably the most memorable line from the last time I was there was "if the river rises and you get cut off make you way to the life vests in the bathhouse rafters and we will rescue you from the roof in a boat.":eek2
    Good times would like to do it again. Whats the Tornado forecast?:lol3

    Do you have dirt bike friendly rides(for dirt bike noobs)? I am thinking I might trailer up my v-strom for some big bike rides and my RMZ450 because why not. However I can just ride up on the stom if not.

    Now don't go blaming Byrd's for Mother Nature's rampage. At least they were nice enough to offer you space on the roof if the river rises. :D They remodeled their bathrooms (the men's anyway, can't vouch for the ladies room) a couple years back. It's all fancy now, and the toilets don't back up nearly as often, which I classify as a win.

    Indeed. There are dirt and street rides to suit all levels. The mother of all threads when it comes to finding a ride is here: http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/ar-slap-trax.660955/

    New sponsor alert: Heartland Honda in Springdale, AR is in this year. Stop by and pick up an Africa Twin on your way down.

    And a shout out for a couple returning sponsors: Some of you will be leaving with new Butler maps thanks to their support again this year, and all of you will be leaving with discount cards from Acerbis, another long time SLAP supporter. These folks make this thing possible so give them your love, and your dollars.

    Well I went last year as a complete noobie for a US rally and this one was one of the best! So I'm in again for this year traveling up from north DFW area.

    cheers

    How romantic! Seems to be a trend. I'll be celebrating my anniversary with my lovely bride.

    You can register on the first page of this thread. You pick your campsites upon arrival, so you and Crownhorse can set up together. There are many good campsites.

    Sure thing. One of theses days things will settle down and I can get the cobwebs off the KTM. There is a good dirt route leaving natural falls down along the Illinois river I've been meaning to ride again. I'll holler when I get ready.
