    There is an annual gathering in Fayetteville, AR, every year, called Bikes, Blues, & BBQ. This will be about the 6th year for the rally and they are expecting between 400,000-450,000 riders to attend. It is much more family oriented than Sturgis or Daytona. Lots of vendors and factory rides and of course lots of food.

    This year the schedule is for from Sept. 29th -Oct. 1. For those close by it's an easy ride from say Tulsa. Siloam Springs is close by (30 minutes) for motels and Eureka Springs is about an hour away but much more "twisty". People watching is a blast and it's pretty sane until late in the evenings.

    Just a thought for a weekend endeavor.

    Sorry, forgot to post the "Official" link.

    Bikes, Blues & BBQ

    It is the largest "non-profit" bike rally on the nation. If they get to over 450,000 it will be the 3rd largest rally of any kind in the nation.
