    +1 Arkansas. There are lots of lots of fantastic roads. Pick nearly any road through the Ozark National Forest and you will be in heaven. Weather should be decent. Hotel rooms should be cheap before the main wave of tourists.

    When does the main wave if tourists get there ? We're thinking of coming up that way late April/early May.

    Late April/early May due to school vacations or warm camping weather. But the tourists crowd the traps of Branson, Eureka Springs, Hot Springs or the lake system camping grounds.

    As a biker you'll be off the primary roads and can work around crowded 'weekends' on the lakes.

    Given time, distance, fixed date and money restrictions maybe you want to take a look at the kentucky bourbon trail if you can't make it to Arkansas which really would be a good place to check out.

    Here in Mountain Home (north-central Arkansas) the tourists start in early to mid-May.

    Kentucky-Eastern that is!
    While the scenery is good for the KY Bourbon Trail it is not a
    "spring break type of destination" plus the roads it takes you on are fairly ordinary hwys as for MC riding.

    You should be fine.
    'Leaf' season in fall can have too many people.

    Your wife will probably dig Eureka Springs, and it can be used as a base of sorts.

    Wife not on this ride. Its the annual spring ride with my riding buddy. We're just looking for some place to go. I'm having trouble getting him to go back to Mexico.
