A question came up concerning the Free Camping listed in the Rally flyer.

Tents camping and campers not hooked up to utilities can stay on Iron Mountain during the rally for free. USCA is renting the entire facilities from CMA, including all the tent camping sites we need.

Non-USCA members are welcome at all USCA rallies. Two wheel riders are welcome too. We always have number of folks who stop in at the rallies who are thinking about maybe getting a rig. They want to talk with people who already own one. Great, come on in. Welcome...

However if you are planning to drop in on the rally and camp without registering for the rally, plan on paying the full daily rate to CMA Iron Mountain.

Free camping is one of the rally perks included in the rally fee, along with a great Southern Dinner, rally shirts, guided rides, dual sport trail rides, games, parade, sidecar show, valuable door prizes, awards, trophies, contests, drinks, snacks and... live music Friday night with a couple of pickers and grinners who have played the Grand Ole Opry... plus a surprise or two tossed in for good measure...

Reserve your spot now before they are all gone.

Both on the mend. Pace-maker doing it's job. Go in Wed. to remove loop recorder.  Avanell  on the mend. Go in 3 times a week for therapy. Lots of at home exercises. Have full intentions of being in Mena. J.R.

Whooo......... Wheee.............. already 50 persons signed up and paid for the 2020 Rally. Counting down four more months until Rally time...

Bike Show categories are firming up...

People's Choice Award - voted on by anyone and everyone in downtown Mena during the bike show. Anyone can wander thru the show, see the rigs and talk with the owners.

The following categories will be judged by a panel of experienced sidecarists.

Best Dual Sport Rig

Best Street Rig

Best URAL Rig

Best Vintage (pre-1960) Rig

Gonna be a great show. Ride, trailer or drag your rig to Mena and show it to fellow sidecarists who can appreciate a great set up.

In answer to a question that came up recently...
"Arkansas is one of the few states that does not require adults to wear a helmet. Instead, everyone on a motorcycle under the age of 21 must wear a helmet. If you're older than 21, you are not legally required to wear protective head gear.
However, all persons riding a motorcycle are legally required to wear eye protection."
That said, we highly recommend you wear a helmet as you will be spending most of your saddle time checking out the beautiful Ozark scenery and not looking at the winding road....
p.s. wildlife is abundant in the forest areas.

well I just took care of paying for the Rally for the wife and myself.

Great, looking forward to seeing you and your wife at Iron Horse.


The 2020 Rally is shaping up to be huge. In the first month of registration over 70 persons signed up and paid their rally fee. Based on previous trends, that indicates a rally of close to 300 people will be in attendance. Four more months until the WAH-SHA-TAH Ramble.

Don't miss this sidecar event of 2020.


Got our reservations made for one of the bunkhouses a while back and just got the actual rally registration completed.

Excited, I am!
