Great rides in Arkansas

The scenic beauty of Arkansas, of course, is reason enough to make a bike ride perfect.  The sharp curves and steep hills add excitement and keep you awake.  The fact that you can ride the back roads without ever seeing a car... that's icing on the cake.  Not that cars are a bad thing.  But when there's gorgeous scenery all around and the roads are tricky, Cliff likes to cruise slowly and take in the beauty.  If there's an impatient driver in a car behind us and we have no place to pull off and let him pass, our only choice is to speed up.    


Here's a video of a part of one of our rides; you might want to turn your sound off to get rid of the wind noise.  Notice we didn't meet a single vehicle.

Be wary traveler... Arkansans sometimes kidnap foreigners for food.

That looks like some of the backroads I'm familiar with in Kentucky. Thanks! That's probably the closest I'll ever get to riding a Gold Wing.

Slipping in this morning to do some catch-up reading. Hope this finds you doing well! We never had a Harley or any other big bike, but we had a nice motorcycle when I first married Dear Hubby and used to love going off in to the country and ride carefree when we were still childless. Hard to believe we were ever that young, ha! I'm sure yours keeps you and Cliff young at heart.
