Been Around the Block
The Ozark Café in Jasper? Great food, not the place to go if you're in a hurry.The Arkansas portion is pretty easy, decent dirt roads and two lane pavement most of the way. Most normal people do the whole thing in a couple of days. We did it on obsolete 2 stroke enduro bikes that ate fuel like crazy, ate sparkplugs and had at least one flat each day. It took us two weeks so you know we were in no hurry. Your tank range should be fine at least for Arkansas stretch. We meandered a lot, leaving the TAT to go see friends or visit new places within 25-50 miles of the trail. We stayed in hotels or cabins. We also ate a lot of BBQ and my buddy called it the Beans & BBQ Trail. Be sure to stop at the Oark Cafe. The burgers and pie are good. It is now a destination ride like the Rock Store in California.
If you get near Eureka Springs, hit up Bubba's for the best pulled pork sandwich I've ever had.
