Wife and I rode down on Thurs to Eureka, spent the evening with some RG friends.
Spent maybe 2hrs at the rally venues Friday morning, MEH......I can only look at some may T-shirts, sunglasses and jewelry.
Many of the aftermarket vendors are same ones at J&P's open house, same stuff every year.
Wandered through the HD display/demo area, more than one of the staff there were very close to be just plain rude.
Dickson street, again, more t-shirts and funnel cakes.
So, off to Rogers we went, stopped at Pig Trail HD, ate, wandered around a bit, headed back to Eureka, met up with Mr and Mrs Zman again for a couple drinks. Heade off for dinner and hit the sack.
Saturday we took off to Mt Magazine St park, awesome ride down Hwy 21 to the park, and then headed back up parallel to I49 and then NE back towards Eureka for the night.
Sunday we were on the road before 5am for the 10 hr ride home.
Great weekend, too bad we're not really the rally types, get alot more out of the ride than the destination I guess.
It's an awesome are to ride and explore, we're planning on making it to the area again next summer, just not during the rally.

|Bruckus||My son and I just made it back from the rally in Fayetteville a couple hours ago. The rally was great and Dickson Street is one crazy place. The roads in the area are fantastic in every direction and motorcyclists are catered to in the area. We spent a few extra days touring around Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri before heading back to Iowa. On the way down we took in the Steel Toe Tour of H-D in kansas City as well as some great BBQ at Oklahoma Joes. All around a great week on the road!!!!|

|Mudslide||I'm going to try something different for nightlife this year. Tired of being a sardine on Dickson and all the crotch rockets bouncing on the rev limiter three feet from my head. I want to relax with a beer and listen to a band. You guys know of any good places? Anything from Fayetteville to Rogers to Eureka is fine with me.|

Pig Trail Road Closure
FYI for anyone coming in from the Southside - the Pig Trail is closed 16 miles North of I-40 (2 miles north of where route 215 intersects 23).

I don't think it has been under the radar in a long time. If I go this year it will be a day run. Motel hotel accommodations are slim to none unless booked months in advance. My father in law goes every year. He makes his reservation for the next year before he leaves during the current event. Best option if reservations weren't already made is camping and even sites can be hard to find.
You can expect things to be packed in Fayetteville and Eureka Springs. If going to Dickson Street best to park several blocks away and walk. Extremely slow going down Dickson and hard on the clutch. Make sure wherever you park your bike it is locked up including the forks. Several were stolen last year including one of the guys that went with my father in law.
If I go I hit the vendor area by the fair grounds. The parking lot there will be loaded with riders bikes to look at. I would rather see those then the endless pool of choppers that all look the same with a different name. I make a pass through there and then head back home.
