    Since it looks like I'm going cross country again this summer, it's time for another post about good roads. Know any good roads in Arkansas?

    John St John found this scenic parkway:

    I've read many times that the Ozarks in general make for great riding and that there are many good roads in northern Arkansas. 

    You say "summer".  I thought you were going in the Spring.

    Ian Spring, Summer. Details. But you are correct, I guess April is Spring and not summer.

    The Butler Motorcycle Map of the Ozarks has a very high density of G1 to G3 classified roads. Northwest of Little Rock, in a wide band that extends all the way to Springfield, there are few roads that are not highlighted/recommended. 

    BTW: Butler maps are a great trip planning tool. And, if you're NOT going someplace where they have a map for it, perhaps you should rethink your plans.

    Yermo, Here is a site  I use. Just zoom in the map to Ark-Kin-Saw. Almost any road in the Ozarks or Washataw mountains are good roads. I know you have rode the Ark Dragon AKA Ark 123N right?
    Ark 103 is good also. Don't forget to stop in the bend of the road for some pie!

    Also stop in Ozark for some BBQ!

     The Pig Trail is famous and heavily traveled.

    I'm not 100% sure yet. We'll probably leave here the 18th or 19th. I have to be in NM on the evening of the 24th. So I'd guess the 21st or so.

    Have you finalized your route, after we chatted on FB about this? I can think of several routes, if you were here for more than a single day.

    Michael Stout, we haven't finalized it quite yet but are working on it. Unfortunately, do to time constraints we'll only have one day in the area so we'll do some reasonable approximation. 

    I do hope to make it back down that way to spend some significant time riding around AK.
