    We took 39 & 21 to Clarksville on the street bike, then went north on 123 & 7 back. The colors were still pretty good.

    My son and I took a couple of our best riding buddies on a route he and I had ridden a few weeks before. Started off with breakfast in Republic, then down to Hurley, basically crossing back and forth over Flat Creek as much as possible, and then on to Cassville. From Cassville we rode in to Roaring River on the old Roaring River Road from the north, and then on down to Sugar Camp road and Butler Hollow down to 187, and eventually on in to Eureka Springs on 23. Fantastic ride and perfect temperature for dualsporting. It was a little dusty, but not near like it was this summer. There were some fantastic views along the way, and we were surprised at how much color there still was on the trees.

    As usual when we're in Eureka, we dropped by the Arkansas Adventure Rider and shopped for a while, and BS'd with a few other ADV types who were out doing the same. We got home a little before dark, and my wife asked jokingly "was it the best day ever"?:lol3 Got to say if it wasn't, it was pretty damn close.

    I've got the route saved. If anyone wants the file, I'll post it up.

    Rusty, I think the idea of a ride on Eldorado's route sounds great. I had other plans or I would have gone. If you can, PM me. I'd like to ask you about other routes, but I didn't want to detour the thread.

    I rode the route on Saturday. It was a nice ride. I usually ride south of Granby into Arkansas, but it was a nice change. I am fairly certain the arrows are down now. I was riding with some other guys, and didn't really pay attention if we were keeping to the route, but it seemed like we did. Also, didn't measure these distances out on my high dollar DR 650 odometer.

    Here's what the route sheet said...I can post a pic if necessary but the sheet was literally just the following:

    Miles
    0.3........East on Airport Drive (just north of Eldo Cycle)
    2.8........Dirt
    4.8........Intersection (Caution stop, no stop sign) you are coming off a hill and it comes up quick
    5.9........Road...hard right onto 801
    6.9........Left onto 450
    8.2........Hard Left 925
    10.3......Right HWY 39
    10.9......Right 1001
    11.........Left
    11.2......striaght 300 across HWY 39 to dirt
    12.........bridge
    12.8.......right 220
    14.1.......right1251
    14.6.......Bridge
    17.........Left HWY 39
    19.6......Straight HWY N
    22.5.......Left 1481
    23.6.......left 500
    24.1.......right 1425
    25.5.......right
    28.5.......Right HWY W
    33.1.......Left HWY J
    36.3.......Left HWY 54
    42.1.......Right HWY K
    44.1.......Left Dirt SW 778
    45.2.......Left SW 301
    46.4.......Right SW 401
    48..........Left SW 650
    49.5.......Left sw 477
    52.2.......Right SW 900
    54.5.......Right HWY 39
    only going 1/4 mile back to dirt Left Turn on 50
    56.8.......Right 150

    I'm working on a new loop from el dorado to springfield on the east side of 13 than coming back on the west side. Goal is to do as many gravel roads as I can! :$

    Not that anybody cares but I will be sending out some possible dates, for those you might care! Lol!

    Hey Rusty, hope you don't mind. I added you and a few others on here to my Twitter acct. I've been talking to a couple of other guys about a pre-Thanksgiving day ride. I've gotta work the entire weekend after T day, but could get off the 19th - 22nd. Keep me updated on that Spfld to Eldo route. I might just come up for some of that world famous BBQ! :dg
