Hey buddy. I think Mena would be fun for nostalgia's sake. (I always say that.)

You know this pimple-faced, booger-eatin' web troll is good for anywhere people choose, as long as there's a twisty road nearby. :)

Yeah, it's a long way over there. So many memories with Rock, Glenn, Mack, Kieth, Wayne, Boggs, GrimReaper, etc. Dry county, too... but we know how to handle that.

I am looking at the last weekend of April...first weekend is Easter....the next two weekends are out for me as my younger son is home from the Army those weekends before a year-plus deployment to Japan.

So how does the weekend of April 24-25 sound, or after?

Further for the TN folks....Ha !!! Bring it on TW.....is that all the distance you got?? I happen to know that Death Valley is pretty in April......just sayin.....but if we have to........those darned Ozarks rock. My sister-Uncle-in-Law lives there !!!

Dry counties.....never stopped a Hoon.....only encouraged booze transportation innovation.

Ozark Inn ?

I’m open to any weekend. Later in the month might draw more folks IMHO. 23rd??

Love to see y’all..

I can probably do the weekend of the 24th. Is there an oldest bike award? I have a longish ride coming up in June, and I'd like to save some FJR rubber for that. I might bring the old ZRX.

Well, I went ahead and pulled the trigger...made the call...
What: NoMoSno 2021
When: Weekend of April 23-25
Where: Ozark Inn, Mena AR (479) 394-1100


I made my reservations, less than $60 per night. When you call tell them you are with the Hoons group, hope they will keep us together reasonably. The Hoons are back!!!!

I might join in. AR south of I40 isn't too great of riding.
But we ALWAYS work our way into OKLAHOMA on the Talimena, should be worth it for you just for a return to the native soil!!! Hope you join in my friend.

Hey Ed, I plan to arrive that night of the 22nd... and head home on the 25th as long as work permits.

Yeah, there's not as much twisty perfection over there, but there's a lot of relaxed fun stuff that works... and Talimena Drive is like riding in heaven, even though the pavement ain't the greatest.

I wonder if the Limetree Inn is even still open.

Yessiree... speaking of crappy pavement, yes. :lol:

And, historically, you could get an orange shirt in Russelville if you run out of rubber on your tires... from the Suzuki shop that would help on the spot, despite the bastard at the Honda dealer that wouldn't work on other makes. :lol:

There's fun stuff around there. Plus all the memories. :)
