    Interesting, I started a different TMOT (Central) track that starts at the western portion of the Trans Iowa Trail at Eagleville MO down to Willow Springs MO. Since I have been laid up until recently, Sieg, DMAC, and j-dub3 volunteered and have been of great assistance riding sections of the track. I'm hoping to ride it in early September.

    Bash3r, it looks like your track and mine overlap in a few locations, I will try to post the track, and if you don't mind give me some feedback on what I have done differently. Thanks, Ed



    EDIT: I removed this track as I rode some of it starting in Eagleville and have discovered a number of reroutes and track editing that needs to occur before the track is put out there in public. Thanks.

    Anyone interested in riding Lost Creek and Massas Creek Rd. this Saturday. Could meet at the Petro Mart around 8:00 in Warrenton and ride LC and Massas and then do a return route that heads north of 70 and comes out on 61 on Creech Rd.

    Wish I could go. The 90/10 tires on my Tiger are just too squirrely on creek crossings. I'm getting TKC-80s put on next week.

    I've been wanting to ride Lost Creek Rd for a while now. I'd love to join but I work all weekend. I wouldn't be able to go until Tuesday or next weekend.

    FWIW, a buddy rode Lost Creek and Massas Creek last Sunday and water was hard to find, especially compared to earlier this spring.

    The first several miles of Lost Creek, coming in from the north, are now black topped. None of the more fun parts were affected. It actually reduces the dust on that first part. I went thru yesterday, and was a bit concerned, but it appears not to have even been graded in the middle section. Fastman is correct. Not a lot of water.
    I didn't have time to go over to Massas.

    I rode Massas Creek 2 weeks ago and there was about a 100 yd section where they had scraped off all the gravel, for repair I suppose. That section was pure mud but it was a blast slipping and sliding through on my big, heavy panzer. Well, fun in a butt clenching sorta way.

    Gotta take the wife's car in for service on Saturday but I might could do Sunday.

    Nice mix of pavement, dirt, loose gravel piles and lots of creek crossings. They're surprisingly isolated feeling considering how close to the city they actually are. There are a ton of Youtube videos for Lost Creek. Just wish it wasn't a 2 hr trip each way for me.

    I'll have to pull it back up on my gps. It's an old waypoint from a former swinging bridges ride. I was in Jeff City Saturday morning, on business. After I got that done, I spent a few hours wandering my way back towards St Louis.
    I hit almost all the SBR bridges, plus a couple of others. All were south of J City.
