Long-Distance Motorcycle Sport-Touring Format Takes on Arkansas Twisties
The Motomarathon Association has announced the first 2014 event of its unique long-distance motorcycle sport-touring season with a spring ride in the Ozark Mountains.
From May 29 through June 1, the Ozarks Motomarathon will loop out of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, with routes designed by Tracy Brasuell of Butler Motorcycle Maps. “The Ozarks represent another American riding region that’s on the ‘bucket list’ of many expert sport-touring motorcyclists,” said Motomarathon Founder John Metzger.
The Ozarks Motomarathon will headquarter out of the Traveler’s Inn, 2044 E. Van Buren St., Eureka Springs, AR 72632 (479-363-6664 – ask for Motomarathon group rates). Initial rider’s meeting takes place the evening of May 28th at 8pm at the hotel where Day 1 routes will be handed out.
Participants will receive a copy of Metzger’s Motorcycling Through Midlife, a new book that shows baby boomers how to manage the dangerous adolescent urges of “midlife crisis” through the author’s personal journey on a motorcycle.
Motomarathon routes and checkpoints are kept secret until the night before each day’s ride. Participants complete a series of self-recorded checkpoints using digital cameras to photograph their badge numbers at designated landmarks.
