    I haven't stayed at this motel in Eureka Springs, but it caters specifically to motorcyclists, even will furnish guided tours (for a fee) of the best area roads. I have heard it is a great place for an event. Check out their site!

    Not sure I want to see a bunch of biker bellies in the pool. So after 8 pages, 110 replies and 1208 views we finally have a location?

    Gee ... uhhhhhhhhhh ... I dunno ... :uhoh
    My personal preference is to avoid Eureka Springs for two reasons:
    1) The RT group has dibs on it
    2) I'd sort of like to have our own thing separate from them ... although it can coincide with the Unrally and we can hook up with 'em.
    Jeebus, this gets complimicated. :eek1

    We can always take a dirt road and ditch them.

    You could cut and paste into the message. Might screw up your columns.

    Where did you want to go? I don't think anybodies cares as long as the roads are fun. A town that isn't popular for rallies might be better.

    I'll go for the or something. I was still typing into that message when my screen went blank and then came back saying my message had been posted.

    I figured what the hell. I turned off the PC and called it a night. If it won't play fair I won't play :1drink

    FWIW - I'm open to most of the mid-west for a ride. Hell if Y'all let me tag along who am I to complain :):

    My original thought was maybe Missouri ... then the MRN crowd's UnRally in Eureka Springs, Arkansas popped up and some folks here want to tie into that. (I believe it's currently being planned for late May).
    I don't have a problem with that, per se, but I don't really want to plan something around another group's itinerary. I sorta wanted this to be our thing and keep it low-key, cheap, fun and not overly-large or overly-organized.
    I mean ... it's us, for God's sake. :lol3
