I went on a trip last week so I started a ride report in the general monster forum. I know not everyone looks around there so I thought I would throw up a link here. This way I don't have to manage the ride report in multiple locations.

Great ride report.  Looking forward to the rest of it. waytogo 

There were a few of us that did a 4 day Arkansas trip weekend before last.  We were able to cover ~1750 miles in the 4 days.  Other than the 100 mile blast up 75 at the beginning and end of the trip, we had over 1500 miles of two lane road fun.  Did AR341 (Push Mountain Road) 3 times and several other great roads during the trip. 

Good trips on the bikes are great fun and a wonderful way to get away from everything and decompress.

Thanks sharing your trip adventures.

Thanks Swanny! I wound up doing 1100 miles over 4 days, but that was bookended by two 1300 mile trips back and forth!

Man, that was some adventure!  That is a really beautiful part of the country.  Been through one or two places you mentioned in a car but not on a bike.  I'll just have to add that to my list of good riding roads.  Thanks for the report.

P.S.  My favorite part of your story was, "As I hit 220… "    Evil

I did think about how hitting 220 sounded! What is that in KPH? Maybe I did hit it!

I have day four and the conclusion almost done. Hopefully they'll be up today.
