Pig Trail 4th annual Barbeque Brisket Battle benefiting the Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter

You deserve a little time Saturday for some riding and while you’re out, we’ll buy lunch. No really. Join us for our 4th annual Barbeque Brisket Battle benefiting the Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter and we’ll provide the lunch.

At least 10 backyard bbq fanatics, circuit cookers and local restaurants will be offering free samples of their best brisket for you and your family to enjoy. After you’ve sampled all the various brisket, cast a vote for your favorite in the OPEN and RESTAURANT divisions. If you’re still hungry after all that sampling, walk over to our food tent and grab a pulled pork sandwich, side and ice cold drink and sit a spell.

FREE BBQ, a great day to ride, what more could you ask for? How bout the largest selection of new and pre owned Harley-Davidson motorcycles in the area. New bikes are arriving every week just in time for Bikes, Blues & Barbeque. Melody our MotorClothes manager has instructed her team to “move em’out”, so they’ve assembled a nice selection of Mens & Womens H-D T-Shirts and Hoodies all sale priced at 50% off! Look for them under the sale tents out front.

Less than 2 weeks till Bikes, Blues & Barbeque and we’re very excited about all the activities planned for the Dealership in Rogers, Destination Eureka Springs and the Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville. We hope you’ll stop by and visit any one of our locations during the rally and say hi.
