    I have a KLR 650 in St. Louis and want to do some adventure riding. Does anyone know of a good place that has:clap KLR friendly trails? I have had the bike for two years and I am getting frustrated riding the street. Ugh, I have been to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. I know the mountains are a different experience than I will have here. But I need to ride trails but, I have no idea where any are here. Any and all help is appreciated! Thanks!

    Send a PM to Mizzou Rider, here on ADV. He'll have suggestions for you.

    Also, check in at REI in Brentwood. There is a jovial big guy there, whose name escapes me now, but he's an ADV rider, and hosted a clinic on motorcycle packing at the store before. That description given to anyone at REI will get you to the right man. Anyway, he should also have good suggestions.

    Finally, there is an informal group that meets at the Sonic Drive In at Big Bend and Kirkwood Dr (aka Lindburg) on Wed evenings. They are mostly ADV riders, but very welcoming of all riders. This is the Sonic just across the street from Doc's Harley Davidson, oddly enough.

    Good luck, and please report back with any findings.
