10 Days, 2035 Miles, With Thousands And Thousands of Twisties: Trail of Tears & Harrison, AR Motorcycle Ride

Our route

Trail of Tears & Harrison, AR Motorcycle Ride

Every September we try to meet our friends from Alabama and Georgia who ride the “Trail of Tears”  motorcycle ride. We meet them either in Hot Springs Arkansas or at the trail end in Oklahoma somewhere. I say somewhere in Oklahoma because the “Trail of Tears” ride ends in different places each year. This year we met them at trail end in Wewoka, OK the home of the Seminole Nation Museum and where the closing ceremonies for the “Trail of Tears” ride took place. From there we road to Harrison, AR and took three days riding the many twisty, scenic motorcycle roads around Harrison. On our return trip home we took advantage of visiting relatives along the way and eating Aunt Imogene’s coconut cream pie… Aunt Imogene probably thinks that is my only reason for visiting…

It was a great ride with great friends, supporting a great cause, great scenery, great twisty roads and for the most part good weather.

  1. Hi there Ivan,
    I have read your first 2 days of the ride and look forward to the remaining days.
    Sad is the way the natives of lands were treated in early years. Australia is no exception.
    As mentioned I look forward to reading further as your ride continues.

    Ride safe.

    • Thanks for the reply… It is sad the way we treated the natives. Having lived in OZ I know too well about the aboriginals. We have come a long way since then thank goodness…
