I just made that trip this past weekend. If you find yourself near central AR holler at me! I have yet to see another NC in this area.
I went up to Theodosa, MO for a ST1300 rally about 10 years ago. I remember a great ride out of Russellville up through Hector, Tilley, Marshall, Harriet, Yellville, Peel, the Bull Shoal Lake ferry across into MO. Great riding. Have fun.
Does this AR trip mean no meet up next week in the Smokies?
