Dozens of Oklahoman’s made the trip to Eureka Springs on April 4-7 for the 10th annual Hillbilly Dual Sport motorcycle ride. Originally started by our riding friend from Kansas, Uncle Dave, it has morphed into a mutli-state event that attracts riders from Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri. Primarily a street and dirt road ride, this fun event usually features beautiful scenery, easy rides, and sometimes cold and wet weather.
This year we were lucky. The weather was a bit cool on Thursday, but the remainder of the weekend was clear, sunny, and warm. Dozens of riders showed up on everything from KTM 525’s to KLR’s to Triumph Tigers. Various groups went out for a ride each day, exploring the back roads in and around Eureka Springs. Our group ran into a local pair on 250 dirt bikes and had fun following them on local 2-track trails.
David Fogle has once again come up with a fun ride with a bit of competition included. For this year’s contest you get to ride the Grand Blvd loop around Oklahoma City. This loop was designed in 1909 and loops around what was then the outer edge of Oklahoma City. It passes by the OKC Fairgrounds, south along 36th, east through Trosper Park and north through the OKC Zoo complex. Check out this fun loop at StreetEnduro.com
