Who doesn't want to camp near Crownhorse?
New Sponsor Alert
Wilderness Rider Buffalo Ranch and Adventure Park is in this year! This is 2,500 acres of pristine, private riding nestled between Kingston and Ponca. Owner Donny Stuart has graciously granted SLAP attendees access to his land. Take a look at the pics on his website, http://wildernessrider.com/, and you'll realize that this is a very, very big deal. I haven't been yet but will scout it prior to the rally. It's a tough job ... yada yada.
I got to ride this last year at the hillbilly DST with Donny leading the ride. What an awesome place. I think we saw 6 or so waterfalls. One bored a hole straight through a large stone outcrop and kept right on going another 30'. Great small bike ride! Lots of elevation changes and a few good creek crossings. Riding through the bison herd was a highlight.
we are bringing a bunch of crap this year hopefully. Extra bikes for sale, another trailer, ect. Unfortunately not the ranger this time though.
Yes, absolutely. If you want real easy you can ride up to White Rock Mountain.
Amanda from Speedsport Leather Works usually leads a ride or two. She knows that area really well and even in some sections she has easy and hard options. Her rides are mostly single track, but the pace is sweet and the flow is good.
Awesome! I am trailering my v'strom 650 and my RMZ450 so I can ride some harder stuff one day and dual sport it up the next. Really looking forward to it.
Great plan. There are lots of great tarmac and trails both in this part of the Ozarks.
How rough are the dual sport trails - I mean, like ride in or trailer in the klr appropriate or 1200cc fire road kinda thing appropriate? I've never ridden that area off pavement but I know the tarmac is croocked good though!
Tons of fire roads if that's your thing. Tons of "roads" that really do not resemble roads if that's your thing. I don't mean to be evasive here, but you really can pick and choose what you want to ride. If you've got a KLR, you're set for pretty much whatever. I'd stay off the single track, though.

AdvMonster is back for another year with some very generous discount coupons. Need auxiliary lights? ADVMonster is your source. Order with confidence, John is good people.
IN. Paid with a T-shirt. This will be my first ADVrider rally!
Sounds like the KLR is the ticket. I was debating riding the Multistrada down due to the distance from Chicagoland, it's vastly superior on the highway but gives up that advantage quickly on the dirt. I'll hopefully be able to tag along with a few rally-goers that know where they are going. :) Now to work on getting that new TKC80 past the missus.
Last year we spent 9-1/2 hours going 21 miles. We had some KLR'S that were missing parts when we came out on pavement. had a great time though. Ride with Mdawg and you are defiantly going to loose some paint. Looking forward to riding again with him this year!
Now that sounds like a good time!
Still have to decide on the 450 and/or Versys.
What I need is a rental trail bike down there so I can ride the 10 hours on my 1200 instead of the 650 and still enjoy a bit of dirt. Any of the sponsors going to be renting any bikes? :)
If you're trailering, bring both. Right now I'm bringing my Versys and Wr250.
If I only bring one of them, it'll be the WR for sure. The cool places are a too rough for my stock Versys.
Perhaps there is someone coming from your neck of the woods that could haul the 650??
Trailer em both, that's what I'm doing. Mind you only from OKC.
Not that I know of. You might check with these guys, though. They're in Eureka Springs, which is a bit of a haul, but it's the closest thing to what you are looking for.
Just coming from Little Rock. I have done small bike stuff in the area, thinking a dedicated Versys weekend could be fun.
Anybody else heading from LR area that would want to take a medium/big bike route up Friday?
