There are sooo many. Suggest you go on Harley Ride planner and look for public routes or scenic rides in that area. Fayetteville to eureka springs has some awesome routes.

Search for the thread "Blues Bikes & BBQ". There are a couple of posts with recommendations. There are so many good rides in Southern MO and AR that it's hard to recommend one.

The hotels in that area have several rides published that you can look at on the internet that covers many of the more popular ride routes; they also put together a pamplet with maps and routes that are available at most of the hotels in that area. If you do a search of any of those areas all this information will pop up for you to review so you can make decisions on how best to spend the available time you have to ride.

Stop at the Welcome Center to Arkansas. They have a book with rides & routes for each part of the state. Anything north of I 40 is good.

I'm heading up to BBB in 2 weeks.. I've rode all of these that are posted below, they are all really nice rides..... I'm partial to the pig trail ride... Be sure to stop at turner bend country store and pick up a pin or patch... They are really nice people.... Also make sure to spend some time in Eureka Springs, and hit the Cathouse lounge and Rockin Pig Saloon.

Some of the best riding in the country...HQ in Eureka Springs. Coolest little town. Looks like a swiss village. VERY biker friendly place. Out of there you can run the pig trail , Hwy7 out of Harrison is must do , hwy 16 , 83 across to 13 in Mo is also great. You can ride there for a week and not see the same curve twice and all will loop back into Eureka at the end of the day. We go twice a year and love it . If you need anymore information, pm me or give me a call. Would be glad to help steer you.:cool:

I was just thru Eureka Springs last week. Great town, wish I had stayed over and did some more exploring. The roads in and out of town were fun. Did some OK roads in southern MO, but nothing spectacular. The Bransom area was nice. Route 19 in MO was cool. You can pick it up off of interstate 44 and take it south to Arkansas.

Yep the Rockin' Pig is a must, then go next door to the PigTrail HD store and they have a rack of maps with scenic rides. Each map has suggested stops and the miles and approx time to ride. Grap one of each and keep them in your bag. If you have a chance to go a little north and east of Eureka Springs, hit highway 125 and cross Bull Shoals lake on the Peel Ferry. Its a free ferry and is kinda cool taking your scooter across the water on a ferry. When we crossed there was 18 bikes and one car. As we approached the other side the hillsdie was lined with bikes coming back the other way. I was one of two Harley's in a crowd of about 60 sport and sport touring bikes.

I agree with the posted speed limits in curves....I never get in a hurry when riding the pig trail, but there is always a few riding sport bikes who love to ride my a*s..... they need to slow down and learn to enjoy the ride........

Damn, saying this means I'm Officially Old........LOL
