Default New to site from arkansas

Hello everyone I'm new to the site and still relatively new to riding. I've been riding for one season now. I have gotten it down pretty good but am getting bored riding by myself all the time. I was wondering if any if you guys are from arkansas I'm in fort smith and can't really find any bike scene.

1.

2. Try the regional forum on here: http://www.sportbikes.net/forums/arkansas/

3. Try looking on meetup.com for riding groups

4. If no groups on meetup.com, start your own group

attend a track day. lots of people to ride with, no cops or minivans or trees or guardrails and you get to ride as fast as you want.

i don't recommend riding in large groups on the street. there's always an idiot in the bunch and, sooner or later, he will wreck you...
