  4. Always the weekend before Memorial Day weekend. (May 15, 16, and 17, 2015)
  5. JayFL - bring your son up to Eureke Springs. It's only about a 4 hour ride from Hot Springs, and that's some of the prettiest scenery in Arkansas.
  6. Gonna make that ride again, huh Rick? Ride safe, and watch out for all the gnats (shouldn't be nearly as many in that part of the state).
  7. Sent mine in today. Lookin forward to seeing everybody there.
  8. I am the one that suggested that the Memphis group stay at the Embassy. It is about twice the price to stay there (as opposed to the Austin), but every room is a suite -- 1 or 2 beds, plus a sleeper in the front sitting room. The Embassy is only about 7 or 8 years old -- the Austin is older. I am not saying that the Austin is run down, just not as nice as the Embassy. The free happy hour and the free complete breakfast are another plus for the Embassy. The Austin does have a bar and a resteraunt, but breakfast is not included with your stay. Just for a little more info, the Austin does have covered parking across the street from the hotel, Embassy doesn't (unless you can get under the awning at the entrance). If anyone has any questions about Hot Springs or the hotels, I would be glad to help them. I do not live in the area (I live about 3 hours away), but I spend at least a week there every year.
  9. Being Hot "Springs", there are plenty of bath houses to relax in. There are also a few gentelemans clubs in town, but I have never been in one. There is an aligator farm in town. You can ride your bike up a couple of different mountains (one of which has an observation tower that looks over the city). There are some WW2 military "ducks" that will take you on a tour of the city and to the local lake. As far as restaurants, there is a nice steak house (by Ark. standards) across the street for the Austin Hotel. There is also a german place (The Brauhouse) in the same area. There is a place called Rollando's that serves "Latino" cusine. McClards is "world" famouse for it's BBQ (it was Clinton's "favorite") There is Oaklawn Downs, but I am not sure when racing season is. There is the usaul mall and restaurant row (Red Lobster, Chili's, etc.) Best thing about Hot Springs is the great roads to ride. Let me know if you have any other questions. I am not a "local" (I live 3 hours away), but I have been there several times.
  10. YEAH!!!! Being from the other side of the state, I can tell you that there are a LOT of nice roads to ride in that part of the state. True, most of them are north or west of there. While I normally have a family commitment on Labor Day, I might have to make an exception next year. There is a Vic dealer in Hot Springs, and another about 30 miles away towards Little Rock. If I can do anything for the Events Committee, please let me know.
  11. Just looking at the picture a little closer - are these going to work on the factory grips, or with Comfort grips?
  12. I likey!!! I had made up my mind to go with a bar end, but now I have a lot to think about. Waiting till they go on sale.....
