Found-highway 123 Arkansas
03/18/18 8:53 AM

I found this highway signage on the Internet somewhere in Arkansas and have been looking for it. Yesterday, my Brother met me in Jasper (highway 7) and we stopped at the Cliff House Inn for Corn Beef and Cabbage meal. Then he took me on some great side roads which brought us to this neat road-123. Very tight curves and actually had concrete curbs to keep debris off the road. I need a 400lb Bike for these roads or take 30 yrs off my age. The weather was great.

I hope you are doing well, sir. My dad and a buddy of mine stayed in Harrison for a few days and "searched" out curvy roads. I don't recall if we found 123, but it does look fun. Good find.

That goes a step beyond "windscreen."

I was looking at an old 1994 Arkansas Map and highway 123 was a dirt road. Last time I rode with my Brother through this area was 1992. No wonder we did not ride it back then. I do not like dirt-switchbacks on a motorcycle climbing a mountain.
Why waste the use of the original screen-free deflector for 2-season riding (below 75 degrees; above that it comes off. Met another Kawasaki Rider (2017 C14) in Jasper, told him he was riding the wrong model.

If you are ever in the area, here is the general location. No gas stations between Marshall and Jasper, about 70 miles. Most roads are paved in this area. We took 7, 374, 74/123 (south), 7, 16, 377 to 65 & Marshall. Marshall is about halfway point for us.

123 is known as the Pig Trail! Awesome road!! Push Mountain Road is another incredible NW Arkansas road.

The Road: The Arkansas Pig Trail (aka, the Pig Trail Scenic Byway), is a 19-mile stretch of State Highway 23 from I-40 to AR-16.

Posted 55 MPH. Very lonely roads, just watch out for an occasional Tractor. Arkansas caters to motorcycles. I've heard the Police will give you 10mph over the posted limit. My Brother was speeding through a tiny town and a State Trooper was setup in a corner. He got a "warning" ticket for 50 in a 35 going through a curve. I heard that 4-wheeled vehicles get 5 mph.

It's the Park Rangers that you have to worry about from my experience...

Well, if you're touching the curb you're in trouble anyway. You ever ridden off the road on street tires?

Enjoyed all the discussion about the curvy roads, guys. I'm also looking for new ones to consider traveling to from Florida

Just use the curb as a "berm"....but actually not much different than the trees and drop offs on the "Dragon".
