Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Photos on this page are also links to more information on our forum.
Hidden in the rolling Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas, Eureka Springs is a unique Victorian town.
With trourism an important part of their economy, motorcycle and scooter riders are welcome. You will see "Motorcycle Friendly" on many of the hotel and business signs.
The twisting roads of the Ozark Mountains bring scooter riders back to Eureka Springs for STO year after year. There are lots of curves, beautiful scenery,
and many of these roads have very little traffic.

Don K Otay: Hi I’m going to be just outside of Branson, Mo picking up a new to me Burgman 650 and was wondering what was going to be the best day to attend to meet other Burgman owners. Is there a schedule of events or rides ?

jim: Hi Don like the page says the rally is from Sep 9 thru 14th, and it's an all inclusive rally even motorcycles. We don't discriminate but love to see folks learning and riding and just having a fun time together. There are many Burgman 650's in the group

jim: Rides, yes I have been throwing some ideas together, We traditionally do a long ride on Thursday but last year the weather was excellent and pretty much every day we took a long ride. When we have enough scooters we might break up into small groups.

jim: You seriously can't go wrong on any road in NW Arkansas I often tell folks new to the area to take Hwy 23 south to 16 East to 21 back north to 62 and west to eureka springs. those are the super highways it's good for about 5 hours or riding.

Don K Otay: Do you know what day the official dinner is ? I wouldn’t want to miss a meal I was hoping to meet the group that rides to Branson and ride back with them to Eureka Springs. Do you know who will be the ride leader for that ?

spstools: From looking at the AGENDA Wednesday morning looks like a good time to hold a slow ride skills competition. Winners to be announced with the Show&Shine results. Should I order the cones?

Michele: Hello everyone, I will lead a differential short ride daily for anyone interested. These will be posted on a white board by the tables under the tents.
