Certainly don't mean to hijack the thread but I need some help. Looking for a backroads route from Joplin, MO to Fayetteville, AR. Would really like to keep it to two lane, county, farm road type riding. Not really comfortable taking the KLR 250 onto Hwy 71 with a 70 mph speed limit. I'm fairly new to Joplin and the only route I know is Hwy 71. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. In the meantime I'll be checking Google maps and what not.
