Rally Guide




One of the best things about the Steel Horse Rally is that it’s close to so many great motorcycle roads. Whether you like curvy and challenging motorcycle roads or scenic roads that follow a meandering river or roads that offer views from mountain tops, you’ll enjoy these scenic roads in Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma. And if you're a fan of HBO's "True Detective," see where the most recent season was filmed in Western Arkansas. See some of our favorite rides below complete with maps.

Arkansas law requires motorcycle operators and passengers under 21 to wear a helmet. The helmet requirement does not apply to three-wheel motorcycles equipped with a cab and a windshield which do not exceed twenty horsepower (20 hp) when such motorcycles are used by municipal police departments. All operators and riders, however, regardless of age, must wear protective glasses, goggles or face shields. 

The Steel Horse Rally is now officially a two-state event and most the events and rides take place in western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. Arkansas does not require adult motorcycle riders over the age of 21 to wear helmets, however, all riders who are under the age of 21 must wear a helmet. In Oklahoma, motorcyclists under the age of 18 must wear a DOT approved helmet. We always encourage safety first and encourage riders and passengers to wear motorcycle helmets and safety gear. It’s a good idea to check the laws of the state or states you may be riding through. In Missouri, motorcycle riders under age 26 must wear a helmet. For more information on motorcycle helmet laws, click here
