Bikes Blues And BBQ!

You feel the rumble first. For most of us it's a feeling, you rarely have

... one that precedes something very powerful.

From far off in the distant hills, you hear that sound, vaguely familiar

... not an everyday sound.

As it gets closer, you tilt you head slightly

... you know that sound.

Then a smile of recognition creeps across your face and your heart jumps a little

... It's the bikes! It's the Bikers! They've come back!

It's Bikes Blues and Barbeque!

It's about that sound ... It's about the people ... It's about those Bikes!

WOW ! The bikes are back and all of NW Arkansas is alive with the deep rumble!

A sound you only hear when thousands of Bikers ride together!

It becomes a roar that fills the roadways and then

it echoes through out the Ozark Mountains.

It's time for the 13th Annual Bikes-blues- & BBQ!
