Push Mountain Rd (Hwy 341) near Big Flat, Arkansas is one of my favorites as well. The southern boundary is Hwy 14. You can ride it for 25 miles north to Norfork, then take Hwy 5 south to Mountain View. The first 12 miles running north from Hwy 14 is the best portion of the road. What we often do is run that 12 miles, turn around and run it again back to Hwy 14! It's worth a 2nd trip. The cross roads you see are gravel fire-roads with very little traffic. The road is wide and the pavement is good quality. You can easily run both 12 mile directions and never see another vehicle. You are more likely to see another bike. This is a road where you can run 100% if you're so inclined.
As with most of Arkansas, they don't use gravel in the shoulders, so there *never* is any gravel in the corners. On very rare occasions a gravel driveway may meet the road in a corner and you might find some there.

Hwy 155 near Bakersfield looks terrific. I plan to spend a week exploring California some year! Thanks Lloyd.

Hwy 125 in Missouri running from the Peel Ferry to Bradleyville. New pavement a couple years ago and they didn't straighten any portion of it. One of the top 10 roads in America, IMO. You are hard pressed to have more fun at 70mph than on this road.

Well, this thread took off like a wildfire  :)

Here's one of my favorites in Arkansas. I like to say this road is a "no mistakes" road as it has zero margin of error. No run off shoulders for much of it. Steep drop offs as well, but wonderfully tight. Best taken at 90%, screw Keith Code. (mostly joking)

And it's in Izard County!

Nick, I agree. I need to ride it in it's element!

General Banter / Multiple bikes
« on: April 05, 2017, 06:44:19 AM »
I don't know how folks with multiple bikes of different classes do it. After just 8 months with 2 bikes I'm facing a dilemma. While riding my sportbike I never have a feeling of "I wish I was on my sport-touring bike", yet while I enjoy my Sprint ST I do on occasion get a feeling of "I wish I was on my CBR".

In an interest in livening things up around here, I will start a thread about favorite roads. Tell us somethings about the road. Why you like it, what makes it great for you.

I will start with a lesser known road in Arkansas. HWY 14 runs between Omaha (Ar) and Mountain View and is one of my favorites in Arkansas. It is a state highway, so posted speeds are 55. As many of you know, Arkansas does not use gravel on it's shoulders so corners rarely if ever have any gravel. HWY 14 covers some ground and is a great, fun choice getting across the state.
As throughout most of Arkansas, police presence in rural areas is almost negligible. No further comment needed.  :)
Super grippy pavement as well.

More later.

I've ridden 3 mufflers to 40k each and didn't repack one. They may have needed to, but I never noticed an issue with power or noise.

The picture of you and Mark (Tumbler) at the Veterans Day dinner attracted a whole lot of attention on Facebook. As you're not on FB, I thought I'd paste the response thread here:
