Routes to Tx

Looking at running 79 thru Arkansas down thru Louisiana and across Tx. Good or bad? Just trying to figure out how many vacation days to schedule off.

From where are you coming? It is not a bad road. Depending on time and where you are headed, I'd suggest going across northern AR, maybe 412. Then cut down on 7. NW Arkansas has some of the best riding in the entire country.
Later,
Ray

79 is pretty good, multiple lanes where there is traffic and most of it is pretty new and well kept. I travel it from Austin to Shreveport all the time, in-laws.

Great advice there. Just depends on how much time you have but if you can swing it I would certainly check out Southern MO and NW Ark roads. I have never been disapointed. Your route is perfect for making time though.

I would suggest, if you are interested, get a Butler MC Map of the Ozarks. You won't be disappointed.

Count the day lost if you don't catch hell for something

Nice, I am not sure what everyone is doing, I know High Maintenance is definitely flying, so riding time and days involved for me are wide open, nothing planned yet, except for the room is reserved in Texas.

Pretty much same here. I should have a day or three extra I can burn for this trip.
