    I'm starting to plan my extended trip out to The Western Rally. Instead of using Kansas as just a conduit to points farther west, I thought I would take some time to see what the State has to offer. I've seen a couple of nice pictorial ride reports that have piqued my interest.

    So anybody have any route suggestions. I'm looking for those off the beaten path dirt/gravel roads that let you see the unspoiled beauty a place has to offer, yet still cover some miles. :ear

    Yes please...it's been over a month since I posted this with no replies.....beginning to think maybe Kansas is deserving of it's "just blast across it on the slab reputation".....:rofl

    Ok now, just showed other half this Kansas site, did a little bit of caging in the flint hills recently, she says that next spring/summer we are going to go down their on a bike thanks for the pics. thinking the new KLR 650, tho she is probably thinking my old cruiser.

    Noticed the pic of that ranch house on 177 south of Manhatten, like the barn best.
