2017 CB1100 Rally - Eureka Springs, AR May 31-June 3
I tried to format the title of this tread to be consistent with the titles of the previous "official" rally threads. The purpose of this thread is to provide general information about the event, its location, and its cost. Discussion regarding all of this is encouraged.

The dates:
Wednesday, May 31, 2017 through Saturday, June 3, 2017

Lodging:
The Trails Inn
2060 E Van Buren
Eureka Springs, AR 72632
(479) 253-9390

Trip Advisor Reviews

I have stayed here and the management was very accommodating. The rooms, while a little dated, were clean and quiet. The pool was very clean and quite refreshing after a day's riding. Pack a suit.

The owner has blocked out about 15 rooms for us. There are various options (bed size, room location, etc.), but the prices range from $49.00-$59.00 +tax/night. My goal will be to provide them with an approximate room count in the fall, before they close in November and then we will each make our own reservations beginning in March. 2017 when they re-open. I am supposed to get an email shortly which spells out the cost of each type of room. Note: There should be no problem extending your stay at either end, if you so desire. You will just need to let them know at reservation time.

There is limited covered parking for bikes, but they will provide rags for drying/cleaning your ride.

Dining:
I would like to have at least one night where we have as many attendees as possible gather for a meal. I suggest The Rockin' Pig Saloon for that meal http://www.rockinpigsaloon.com/ . It is a very short walk from our motel, has plenty of room for a group (I will call to reserve space for us), and the food is fantastic (IMO).

Riding:
AR23 for sure, but I have a map of motorcycle routes in the area so I can come up with some other roads and I know that there are others who have more local knowledge that will help me come up with some group rides.

Nothing for anyone to do now except talk about the event and, if you would be so kind, to reply to my poll here - http://cb1100forum.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=8975

Check here now and then for more updates.

Here we go!

Sparky and I are in.

Thanks for getting things started MTC.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

So far, we have a 11 riders and at least one +1! Pretty good for 328 days out. Smile

I know that some of you will have to trailer your bike to the event, but I am here to tell you that there are great roads in all directions from Eureka Springs. Our ride from St. Charles, MO to Eureka Springs would have been delightful if it hadn't poured the for 3 hours. Ride out if it is at all possible.

Also, still way to early for this sort of planning, but anyone passing through Illinois on their way southwest who wants to ride with me, let me know and we'll try to coordinate schedules.

Looking forward to this 'gathering' and hoping it grows into a 'rally'.

I'll start working out an appropriate trade for a kitchen pass. That'll be nearly two weeks of saddle time if I ride out there and back. Woot!
Thanks, MTC, for stepping up and getting the ball rolling. Onward and upward!

I'm there for sure, with my son. We will need a two bed room.

My home is in St Charles county of Missouri which is about five hours from Eureka Springs. I'm open to hosting a few riders overnight stay and would want to make this a stopping point on their ride to the rally.

Lots of time to plan and think about it.

That's pretty close to right on my way, so we'll see if a meetup will work. Very kind of you to offer!
