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.

I am so lucky to be able to live among these twisties.   Maybe these "behind the handlebars" shots can help you remember the great views (and skies!) we all shared on our rides at STO this year.    I'll post a link to my regular camera shots later.

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 in Eureka Springs. You will see "Motorcycle Friendly" on many of the hotel and business signs.

bandito2: I put the scooters away for the winter. Did that after the GF had me put up decorations outside. Funny how she almost always times it perfectly. Nov 23, 2015 14:38:53 GMT -6
bandito2: She set the date 3 weeks before the forecast for snow ever came. I don't argue the job at all... when she says we'll do it then... by golly I make sure to do it because bad weather always follows Nov 23, 2015 14:40:41 GMT -6
Tressa: We had our "Thanksgiving Dinner" here last night with our daughter and her family, a nephew and his wife and my brother and sister-in-law. 10 of us in all. Had a good visit, as everyone we invited gets along. Nov 23, 2015 14:41:26 GMT -6 *
bandito2: We're keeping it simple here this year... Spiral cut ham this year instead of turkey... but all the other usual stuff. And the GF is cooking the yams herself... Doesn't want any canned yams. Nov 23, 2015 14:43:59 GMT -6
Tressa: We had turkey again, wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it, but with only 10 people here I skipped the ham this time. Nov 23, 2015 14:45:34 GMT -6
Tressa: Sister-in-law brought the sweet potatoes. Nov 23, 2015 14:46:19 GMT -6
Tressa: You call them yams, we call them sweet potatoes. Regional differences, I guess. Nov 23, 2015 14:47:26 GMT -6
bandito2: Last year I was here by myself while the GF and a couple of her traveling pals went on yet another cruise or land tour. Cooked a small turkey loaf and all the other goodies. Nov 23, 2015 14:47:48 GMT -6
bandito2: We call them sweet potatoes here too... I was just thinking of the ones in the can... they always seem to be labeled "Yams" Nov 23, 2015 14:49:22 GMT -6
Tressa: I don't like the canned ones either. Much better made from scratch. Nov 23, 2015 14:51:03 GMT -6
bandito2: Once in a while sweet potato pie can be found at the store ... which I prefer over store bought pumpkin pie.... which really isn't pumpkin but mostly some other squash Nov 23, 2015 14:52:39 GMT -6
bandito2: I might be busy and not make it here for chat next week. Nov 23, 2015 14:55:13 GMT -6
Tressa: I've thought about putting something in the message above about not promising there will be someone to chat with every week. I'm usually here, but have forgotten a couple of times, and had something else come up a few times. Nov 23, 2015 15:00:09 GMT -6
bandito2: Dunno.... There really aren't many that ever bother to join chat... and those that do. know that sometimes there very well may not be any body that shows up on Mondays. Nov 23, 2015 15:03:44 GMT -6
bandito2: There is always in between time and folks will post a message Nov 23, 2015 15:05:26 GMT -6
bandito2: I suppose one could announce that they plan to be here on some specific day & time other than the Monday scheduled chat... even if it were only a one time thing Nov 23, 2015 15:08:32 GMT -6
Tressa: Well, I'll say g'night. Have a great week, and a Happy Thanksgiving. Nov 23, 2015 15:09:03 GMT -6
bandito2: You too... Good night. Nov 23, 2015 15:09:30 GMT -6
jim: I'm working night's now so Happy Thanksgiving everyone and have a great week. Nov 24, 2015 0:56:13 GMT -6
Tressa: HAPPY THANKSGIVING ! Nov 26, 2015 4:51:53 GMT -6
