Fools on a Hill

Postby duckdave » Mon Feb 18, 2013 12:25 am

I' ve been doing this local (non) rally for several years now and highly recommend it. I'll post some pictures if I can find 'em..
The road up to Mt Nebo features 9-12 hairpins in about 2 miles on an 18% grade and is fairly representive of riding in the area (ok, I exaggerate. But not by much). Originally a guzzi-specific (non) rally, it's now non-denominational with good representation from all brands from HD to BMW.

Mar 15 to Mar 17, 2013
FOOLS ON A HILL 14

GUZZI/BMW WINTER CAMPOUT, Mount Nebo State Park, Arkansas (last official weekend of winter). No goofy poser activities, just motorcycle weirdoes sharing a big campfire on a 1900-foot bluff overlooking the Arkansas River and some great twisty rides to obscure eateries. MOTORCYCLES ONLY! CARS OR TRUCKS WILL BE TOLERATED ONLY IF THEY ARE CARRYING FIREWOOD. Mt. Nebo State Park is located 5 miles west of Dardanelle at the end of Arkansas Highway 155. 479-229-3655, mountnebo>at>arkansas.com. Mario or Ann Caruso, 501-622-0987, Guinzomoto@arkansasrider.com or Jim King, 479-233-9376, fools>at>cox.net. http://www.members.cox.net/fools.

Bump.

I couldn't figure out a way to post pics from my iPad. But pics are unnecessary---just imagine sitting around a roaring campfire by night (and all those motoguzzi groupies hanging out), and riding the local twisties by day! And bragging rights that you camped out the last weekend of Winter, ON YOUR MOTORCYCLE! (in my case, I emphasize I do it every last weekend of Winter).

Seriously, only 1 year of the past 5 did the geezers go out to WalMart to buy electric blankets. And I want to emphasize that not ALL the old guys did that. Just the weak ones. Again, seriously, how cold can you get in a campsite with electricity. Most years, the weather is typical "Arkansas balmy"---a sweater under your riding jacket and ur good to go.

So if your looking for adventure, and some good riding, consider Fools on a Hill.
