Ok, here's the skinny. Anyone that has ridden the Glade Top Trail is an OUTLAW!!!! Unless you've aquired both the permit to ride OHV from Chadwick and the county OHV permits in all counties you rode in.

I just talked to the ranger station in Ava and the nice lady informed me that in order to ride numbered forest service roads you need the Chadwick permit. To ride numbered county roads you need the county permit. Some counties will honor neighboring county permits. The best bet is to buy all the permits you need before heading out....

Singletrack is offlimits to OHV outside of Chadwick...She said she knows people ride them, but wanted to iterate what was legal.

Also, if you call the office, they'll mail you maps for free! I've always just stopped by on my way, so this is a time saver.

To reach the Ava/Cassville ranger district, you can call the following number :Main Office
Ava/Cassville/Willow Springs District Office
1103 S Jefferson
Ava, MO 65608
(417) 683-4428
(417) 683-4464 TTY

South Central part of the state. Google map Emminence Missouri and you'll see both the Current river and Jack's Fork river, or go to missouriscenicrivers.com for detailed info and water levels.

What part of the river was that on and when did it happen?
I was on that river and a ranger, in a canoe, was checking everyone. He stationed himself around a bend. You could not see him until you rounded the bend. If you were doing anything illegal it was too late.

I ride a 2000 R1. It's not much of an adventure bike, but I love it. It's got 51k miles on it now, 11k from me in the past two years. This past summer, I did a trackday at Hallett the end of may. A week into June, a friend and I set out from Springfield at midnight for Birmingham, AL and back. Finished with 1070 miles in 22.5 hours with receipts and witnesses and all, but never ended up sending it in to IBA.

Now I have the bug to do a lot more touring and trackdays. I figured I would join here and see where it took me.

Sounds like an adventure to me. ADV is what you make of it. Not everyone rides a KLR around the world, some even do it on custom hardtail choppers!

I currently ride a baby ninja and use it like a light duty sport touring rig and light off road bike. We were doing regular rides but winter has pretty much crapped on that parade.

Be carefull of the ride reports forums, they will have you lusting after KLR's, DR's, KTM's and BMW's to go do the gnarly rides...

How was Hallet? Graydragon and I have talked about going down there but the videos we've seen makes me think that the pavement is pretty rough.

One of the guys across the street is in the Mazda Miatia club and goes down to Hallet a couple times a year. He has mentioned that there are some rough spots in the pavement.

trackdays are an absolute blast. Hallett does have some rough spots, nothing horrible, but not a pristine track by any means. It's more of a mom and pop type track. Not a whole lot of extra amenities, but they have a track and everyone is as helpful as possible. I've seen guys tear their spare bike apart to give someone a piece they need. It is cheaper than others (gateway, heartland park in topeka) but they have better pavement and are normally run by NESBA, or other trackday organizations.
