EUREKA SPRINGS VALKYRIE RALLY

This July Jim Eldridge asked several of us that ride Honda Valkyrie's if we would be interested in attending a "Valkyrie Rally" in Eureka Springs Arkansas. So Cindy and I, Jim and Chris Eldridge, Dennis McGehee and his wife Renee, Randal McGehee and his girlfriend Tammy, and Dennis Matz all rode over to Eureka Springs Friday evening (July 13th) to attend this "Rally" on Saturday morning.

When we got to the motel that was supposed to be hosting the "Rally", we saw 4 Honda Valkyrie's in the parking lot, (one on a trailer) and no sign of any other rally activity. Apparently the "Rally" was a much smaller event then we anticipated, so we made the best of it and decided to ride the "Pig Trail" scenic byway. Dennis, Renee, Randal and Tammy had never ridden it, so we took off. These are some of the pictures taken while on that ride. Some of the pictures were taken while I was riding down the road with one hand on the handlebar, so if some are slightly out of frame or not exactly in focus I hope you will understand.

Some wind chime huh?

I'm not sure what was going on in this picture. Draw your own conclusion.

This is a one lane bridge on highway 187 between Holiday Island Arkansas, and Highway 62.
