    Why so far east? All the good riding is more towards the west side and middle of the state. Although anything in the northern tier of the Arkansas Ozarks is good.

    I will probably be there just because I can be. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    The original intent for the Traveling Picnic was to be inside a 500 mile circle centered on the Ohio River Valley area -
    This was decided simply due to the fact that is encompasses a LARGE portion of the population the original founders knew would attend.
    Keeping it centered made it a one-day ride in for most people
    Paragould is the western edge of that circle for a base camp - nothing is keeping people from going west from there

    Typically there is a camping site chosen as well - stay tuned for details
    Or you can always choose to stay where ever you want and join the picnic group as it fits you

    Hey Justin,
    I’m in the process of buying a GS1100E from GSScott. The more I look at the 1150, the more I find that needs to be addressed. I need a daily rider while the other gets the attention it needs/deserves. It would be an absolute hoot riding to Arkansas with you. Hopefully you’ll have the time.
