The only downside is the road surface is very abrasive. Excellent grip on Arkansas roads but they eat tires at roughly twice the rate I otherwise experience (anyone know why/what they use?). But this also means great traction and and you can use a "lesser" tire with better wear and never worry about grip.
I don't call this a downside! You can run Sport touring tires and its like having Supecorsas anywhere else. Ive managed 62° lean angle on the S21's, stopped the bike mid-turn, gotten off, finished my coffee, got back not the bike and finished the turn. Sticky for daeaaaays!

Yep, a lesser tire in Arkansas is equivalent to a top level sport tire anywhere else. It is great fun.

Arkansas is great at putting down the grippy chip seal. I've gone down there with like new tires, and after an 800 mile long weekend they are near the end of their life.
I say it's a terrific payoff.
I have a friend that lives in the Ozarks and buys tires buy the stacks each year.
