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.
ANYONE is welcome to post here ANY TIME. (No spam or foul language please.) Join us most Monday evenings at 8:30 (Central) for chats.

jim: Well? I am needing to change my oil after Wednesday's ride so maybe we could set up a changing station. I usually bring a quart, a funnel and 17 mm wrench this one has no filter. Bring along your filter, oil and we can do it there.
