Missouri Adventure Riders Thread

As Noted - Calling Eastern Missouri Riders (though all are welcome!)

How about a thread where we can post upcoming rides to go exploring, call out for some riding partners, or discuss good ole Missouri dual sport riding opportunities? Hopefully a thread like this can catch on because I don’t (and won’t) claim to be the best or fastest but I do like to ride. I’m always looking for some upcoming long day riding events whether it’s a blast through the Ozark gravel roads, forest roads, and creek crossings or a twisty ride to get something to eat somewhere. I’ve been on a few excursions with some knowledgeable and talented riders that have opened my eyes to some awesome dual sport and sometimes challenging riding in Missouri (Just when I started thinking there was no where to ride a dual sport bike around here). This could be a place to share GPS files and get together for a good 300 mile day once in a while. Of course I’ll be including the Illinois folks because I’ve met and rode with a few of you guys and it’s always a blast.

Whatcha guys (and gals ?) think?

This must be an Eastern Missouri thread, cuz us Western Missouri guys have to go into Kansas for good DS ridin'. But hey, if y'all ever head westerly aways, I'm always down for riding.

I thought about making it for Eastern Missouri except we've rode down past Rolla on backroads and it was a great time....which would be right in the middle for us....I'm hoping to spark a once a month ride or something...

The Kansas thread is made up mostly of members from the KC area save Bake/Wichita and McB/Topeka. The rest of the responders live pretty local. Well there is IMoney in Springfield and Bender in Sedalia also.

A Missouri thread could be for things outside KC area maybe?
What say yea?

A nice Fathers Day present to myself

My old '99 KLR will be getting a new motor this weekend.

It is all ready to install with a few upgrades inside



Hopefully I'll get time to put a few miles on it as well. Ken

Is that a hemi?

Looks good Ken...Hope all goes well with the maiden voyage. Is that piston oversized?


The hammer's a nice touch - best tool in the shop.

It is a 685 big bore kit from Schnitz Motorsports. The bottom end is from a 2001 that has about 1200 miles on it. At least I didn't put it together on the kitchen table this time Ken

If you are interested in riding in Western Missouri. Mark Twain National Forest in Chadwick Missouri is a great place to do more heavy duty riding. If you check out the Cassville Missouri area there are many miles of dual sport trails and some great Ozark Mountain views. The best thing to do is to: put yourself in the know. Get to a local shop that sells aftermarket parts and accessories. You will meet people there that break things. This means they like to ride and probably know places to go.
