    Agreed. There are no good riding roads in Arkansas. Please carry on, and do Illinois Motorcycle Map...

    What's up guys! I live just a few mile from Jasper and I've been exploring this area fairly extensively. I'm throwing around the idea of writing a small brochure or pamplet like thingy for the 4 or 5 routes I've worked out. I have a few more in the works, but I want to focus on short to semi long routes centering around the Jasper area of Newton County. Don't want to step on anyone's toes, I'm sure you guys have put a lot of work into this map. What do ya guys think?

    2nd revision of our new Ozark regional map.
    KC is in the upper left, SL is in the upper right
    Tulsa on the left and Little Rock the lower right.

    This map has more G rated roads than any of our other maps.
    There is amazing riding to be had.
    Should be available within the month! Stay tuned for updates.

    i do all the dirt road work for Butler and we're having a hell of time adding dirt roads to this map because the area is so large and thus the map is zoomed out so far that i don't have enough room to label the dirt roads.
    also where i would label a dirt road between G rated paved roads i have about an inch to work with in space and the road names change so much vrs the longer single name western dirt road we have.

    you guys have sooooo many packed in tight paved roads (it's unreal!) there is just no room. out west our paved roads are fewer and farther apart so i have plenty of open space to add dirt roads.

    we might add some dirt roads in our G1 detail boxes (especially the big one in the lower right corner),
    but i'm not sure at this moment what will happen. sorry all you ozark dirt fans.

    Cool! Just got in contact with someone in the Arkansas Parks and Tourism so I may be able to get a little help from them. If you guys are interested in a cool contact just let me know. :D

    :clap July is just around the corner and Butler is getting a map together ! I 'm hoping to see northern AR and explore some secret roads , we used to have a few of those here in CO but maybe the high price of gas has held back the hoards . Thank you Butler !

    Sweet! I wonder if we're talking to the same person? If things can finally calm down a bit at work I'll get back to my little project. Sundays are my only day off and it would be nice to have some people to ride with. The lone wolf thing is getting a bit old.

    The photographer was involved in an accident with a motorcyclist. Didn't turn out well at all for the two wheeler. Photo Man folded his tent and went home. It really bothered him deeply.

    one of the final Ozark revisions before printing next week. :clap
    this will be a paved road only map because of the scale and large area it covers. sorry to all you DS out there who were also looking for dirt on here too.
