It would help to propose what area(s) you are considering for the meet.

I'm presuming the Ozarks.

As spelled out in maddjack's sticky thread about the National meet:

Quote
Date The meet is in June, the third Tuesday and Wednesday. This gives attendees a full 9 days of travel time, sandwiching the meet between two weekends.


For 2012, that means June 19 - 20th.

I already penciled that in for next year on the work vacation calendar. Will probably repeat much of my 9-day route (minus the detour south to Barber), and replace that day with a full day of twisties around Deals Gap/etc.

Like it was in 2008, the Rodeway Inn looks to be the strongest contender this year.  Does anyone know what's going on that week in ES?

If its too tough in ES that week , what about Berryville or something in the general area ,that may be less crowded. I am seeing no major events listed on our dates, but a lot on the weeks before

Fucknuts... I've been trying to figure out why so many hotels are higher priced or booked full for the national week.  

I am starting to see why now.

I will investigate further.

There is an Eagle Rider Rental in Rodgers, Arkansas.  They rent out the assortment of Harley products.  http://www.pigtrailhd.com/rent_models.asp  

I believe you can rent a scooter in Eureka as well.
