Arkansas Ride 2006

Here's the gang : left to right , Elio (myself) , Andy ( girls the boy is single ) , Terry n Rondene, and Martha n Mark. This trip had 3 new bikes on it. Terry was on his new bike, a Yamaha 1100. It was also his first time to go on an overnight/weekend ride on a motorcycle. And Rondene... she's a trooper, her first time to ride and go on a motorcycle trip. Mark was riding his new '89 Kawasaki Voyager. He had just gotten back from riding his new bike from Reno, Nevada to Texas. I think he only had 2 or 3 days rest before our trip. Martha , well the Tour Deluxe is officially hers now ( woo hoo go girl ! ). Andy had his new 4 week old Honda VTX 1800 ( SWEET BIKE !!! ). This pic was taken on route 1 that takes you into Mena, Arkansas. You just couldn't ask for better weather. We stopped in Hot Springs, Arkansas the first night. Everyone was pretty tired by the end of the day. We rode close to 400 miles the first day. But after the great steak dinner we headed to town. Hot Springs is a great town. Andy and I took lots of pics. There were lots of bikers there just hanging out watching the bikes go by. Here's Terry saying : "Look Ya'll I can see Texas from here" . This pic is in the main town area of Hot Springs. If you look close you can see Andy by his bike saying " Dang, how did I hit that bug way back here" ?

Here's Andy trying his luck with the girls. He sure looks happy. I think it was his first time not to get slapped why'll trying his hand on the boob technique... Yeah, Andy you da man !

Terry saying : " It's ok everybody , stand back, I stayed at a Holiday Inn Experss last night... I can do this !

This is just a cool pic of an old abandoned general store in an almost ghost town.Here is Terry and Rondene at one of the best places to eat in the middle of nowhere . Deer, Arkansas is off of route 16 , west of route 7. They have the best onion rings there. The next few pics will be some action shots taken from my bike why'll going down the road... Enjoy. Notice the great roads, trees, and curves

It was a great trip. Arkansas is a great place to ride and just a short weekend trip to make. It has loads of fun curves, neat places to see, and some really cool out of the way small mom and pop places to eat.
