    I ride Arkansas 3 or 4 times a year, I would prefer the spring or fall months, it gets damn hot and humid mid summer. Northern Arkansas is the better riding in my opinion but as far south as Hot Springs is pretty good. There are some big rides , Blues Bikes and bar B Q is a big deal but if you're going to ride, about 4 bikes is the max for me. I think you could ride Arkansas for a month and never be on a bad road or the same road twice, it has to be in the top 5 states to ride !

    Yes it is happening the first weekend in April.
    Look in the "Rallies" sub-forum for it, the Hillbilly Dual Sport (my ride) and SLAP rides.

    Camping on Illinois River!

    Green Country Oklahoma Adventure Tour is an adventure route through the backcountry of NE Oklahoma. The GOAT follows public roads through a variety of terrain from deep loose gravel, mud, steep hills, water crossings and more. The GOAT will take you through many wooded areas including the Cherokee State Game Refuge, the J.T. Nickle Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve, and Spavinaw Hills. At 438 miles the route will take most riders more than one day to ride so plan accordingly. Riders will have the opportunity to camp at many State Parks, rough it in the woods, or stay at a hotel or Casino Resort! The adventure is up to you!

    I went to the Hillbilly Rally several times back when it was in Eureka Springs and once after it moved to Marble Falls. I haven't been in several years, but I would recommend it.
