Some of you were around for the infamous TEAM[ZG] Motorcycle Hauler/Party Bus thread. Well, we just took the ZG bus from Minnesota down to Arkansas to get in one last ride of the year. Spent three days tearing up the roads of the Ozarks.

Grass-to-grass roads. No gravel. No salt. No sand. Abrasive roads. Friendly folk. Couldn't ask for a better place to ride!

Now, I gotta say... all the pictures and video couldn't do this place justice. It's heaven, and can only be fully & truly appreciated in person. Without further ado...

I've taken our bus on three "big" trips since I picked it up, with hopes on taking it to a lot more places.

TRIP[1] - Daytona Beach Bike Week - 3066 miles - Daytona Beach, Florida
TRIP[2] - Mid America Trackday - 770 miles - Omaha, Nebraska
TRIP[3] - Ozark Mountains - 1316 miles - Eureka Springs, Arkansas

I think you may have found the only place in Arkansas worth seeing. For the most part Arkansas sucks to drive thru/visit

Sadly, that's all the pics I got. One guy did capture some bike-mounted video, so when that's up and ready I'll be sure to post.

One of the guys who went, had some family in Garfield Arkansas. They have shoreline on Beaver Lake, nestled quietly in the mountains. We kept the bikes in the garage, and slept in the house. The hosts cooked breakfast and made dinner every day. Some real awesome southern styled food, it was **** BAMF. From Biscuits & Gravy to fresh caught deep-fried Catfish.
