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.
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.
acvw74: Jim, my neck gaiter is very high on my list...relatively inexpensive and great for cold weather and a good sun block.

acvw74: However...I would have to go with my gloves...I would never ride without them! I learned the value of gloves...spent too much time picking gravel out of my palms.

jim: I have to agree that gloves are right after the helmet, been hit by gravel and other objects in hands even a bird once so yep gloves are right up there on the list of always used riding gear.

jim: I'm feeling pretty guilty of how I've been treating the little Kymco scooter. Here it's been just sitting in the storage unit for 4 months now with no visitors, it's poor battery going a little deader every day it's tires flat spotting. just sitting there

jim: Poor little scooter on the other hand it's negative 3 degrees outside with a 20 mph wind, I didn't tag it this year and the storage facility doesn't have any electricity to our unit. and those are my excuses that and I didn't just move to a warmer climate

jim: The spring rains are upon us again so maybe some warmer/ riding weather will follow? I have been looking at some possible long rides 5+ hour rides in all directions, maybe someone more familiar with the local roads could plot out some short rides?

Tressa: Looking forward to seeing the rides you come up with for STO 2019, Jim!

bandito2: Lance, sorry I couldn't make it to the funeral. I imagine in time things will get back to some semblance of normal for everyone... but for now we grieve and will miss her sorely, and yet will have fond memories. Prayers sent.
