here is the link to sigh up[ for the rally http://razorbackriders.org/Pre-entryDualSport/index.php
I am helping to run this event for our club. I'll be riding my WR250R and leaving my Strom at home but there is plenty of riding for the wee strom or guys that like to ride gravel roads on the 1000 or if you have another bike like me and want to hit some more difficult trails and roads.
Our main goal of this event is to put you on Arkansas roads or trails that are at your level that are of excellent quality. We'll provide GPS tracks that most of witch I'll run personally before hand (or another local guy in the club) and if you don't have a GPS or want to come down solo we'll have some of us local guys leading groups.
We plan to have tracks from gnarly single track to a mix of fairly gnarly atv trails and gravel roads to easy gravel/pavement scenic rides. To get to our camp you'll have to run some easy gravel but if you want to ride all Hwy we can give you some good suggestions for that too.
Here's your chance to ride what some of us locals think are the best to offer... and Arkansas has some great riding. We'll also let you in on the best places for lunch.
The Razorback Riders Motorcycle Club (RazorbackRiders.org Homepage
) will be opening our facility up to trail, dual sport, and adventure riders to host the Inaugural Rally @ The Rock (White Rock, that is) on October 9-11. For those not familiar with the Razorback Riders Club, we are a private club that was started in 1968 for the primary cause of hosting the White Rock Enduro round of the BJEC racing series. Our campground facility is located just south of Combs, AR on the banks of Mill Creek which flows through the Ozark National Forest. If you've never been to the area to ride a motorcycle, you owe it to yourself to come check out what the area has to offer to the off road rider! For those of you who are familiar with the area, you already know how good the riding is, so come on out and join us for some great times!
We are still in the early stage of planning the event, but the date is definite, so mark your calendars if you want to come ride some of the best the Ozarks has to offer.
For now, the basic idea of the event will be to have participants show up for the weekend on Friday. Camping will be included in the entry fee for each participant with accommodations for everything from pitching a tent to using one of our 54 RV spots with 30 amp service and city water connections. As for the riding for the weekend, we plan to cater to everyone as we will be offering rides on everything from trails to pavement and everything in between. We will be posting up .gpx tracks for riders of different levels that include some of the must-see sights in the area as well as the best roads and trails the area has to offer. The plan for now is to have routes for different types of rider abilities that range from gnarly forest roads and trails to scenic gravel and pavement and everything in between, so there will be fun riding for everyone. Of course, everyone is welcome to go on self-guided rides and explore the area themselves as well.
I will be updating this thread as we finalize all the little details that will go into the event, so keep an eye out for updates. There will be event T-shirts available as well for an additional cost for those that want them. Saturday's dinner will be included as well and we are planning on doing a cookout style dinner with burgers and hot dogs, etc. Saturday evening.
We hope to see you guys and gals there for some fun Ozarks riding at one of the best times of the year for it!
