The TMOT runs not far from Petosi. https://basherdesigns.com/tmot/
Awesome- Just what I was looking for.
As sieg says, the two is mostly all run on private property however the Sutton’s Bluff trails are public but you do need the permit.
You and I know each other and I don’t think you would like Sutton’s. I sure don’t.
Give me a call some time and I’ll give you Link’s number. You would like riding his area assuming he is taking anyone out right now.
Once again heading south from eastern Iowa for a 4 day fall ride through MO. Heading out this Thursday morning for Herman then will wind down through Viburnum, over to Ft Lenardwood, Lake of the Ozarks, and back via swinging bridges. Big bikes this time if anyone has some big girl friendly suggestions (1090R and VFR1200X). Maybe we'll see you down there, cheers! (Mixing some tracks from basher, sieg, and cannonshot)
Gateway Riders annual “Falling Leaf” BMW Rally in Potosi was great as usual with 300 people this year.
I was down there yesterday. Thought I’d drop by, but arrived at 1:00 pm, the campground was deserted. Just one smoldering fire out in the field. Even the vendors had packed up and departed. Found out later it ended at 10:00 am. Maybe I should have checked first. (Ya think? Ha!) Looks like I missed a good time.
Yah- they roll up the sidewalks early on Sunday. I was up drinking coffee and gone before 0700. Typical of all BMW Rallies is that Sunday is "mobile" where everyone talks and makes plans for a ride route home. Most of the time that includes taking a new route you heard about with friends and sometimes it is just trying to survive bad weather. I'd put it on your calendar each year since its open to all brands and at $30 for camping food and firewood it's a steal...not to mention it's in the heart of dirt road heaven. They lead a Saturday GS ride that is supposed to be pretty spirited and scenic.
BigDog was there hootin it up on the Honda Rally "790" all weekend. Him and all his Honda buddies were making a lot of noise late Saturday night and someone called the sheriff and made them quiet down...which meant being told, "roll over on your side- You're snoring Sir"...
Hey Scott-----------luv the trash
Just got home-----------10,000 miles on the "790"----------------Bike had been making a funny noise---------chain was shot and had stretched unbelievably fast----I think I was lucky to get home with it.
Great to see you again at the rally. Man it was cold there both nites.
I was so humbled at the 3 step hideaway a month or so ago.
Cried like a baby the whole time. If you want to see a grown man cry---------linky below.
WOW!! That was great BigDog, just great. And all this time I've been hanging out with you because I didn't think you had any friends?!?!?!
Great read by Little Dog too....The very best part was, "My Dad is tough, my Mom is tougher."---Man that's TRUE!!!
My best memory of riding together was when you stopped and didn't go over the edge on that flooded bridge- Man it was scary and I was so relieved we made it safely across. The second scariest was when I watched those guys wave us over and your bike moved sideways in the current and you put your foot down to stop it...I stayed put and went around.
The funniest (...Other than numerous body noises in public...) was riding the SBR and I got us way off course late at night...I talked you into taking some new guys out and they were having a real adventure, but chasing their tales. Well, finally enough was enough of their good ideas and you said..."They're going that way, but this (pointing to GPS) says we're going this way" and we left. I was laughing in my helmet for miles. Those guys were lost for hours and hours in the woods and got to the hotel asking, "Where did you guys go?".
Time for me to go pack up for a ride through the Ozarks to Arkansas this weekend and see the fall leaves...I'll probably need to go back again next weekend to see if any changed color...
I hope everyone is taking the time to savor the beauty here in Missouri.
If not, get out and ride...
I wish i was there.
Just got home from another great MO trip. Iowa to Eminence, Lake of the Ozarks ,and back. See you next year!
I was out Scrambler-ing all day. Fall in the Ozarks is hard to beat and I’ve been gone every weekend and looking at a trip to Hermann this weekend. WooHoo—
^^^^^^^ Wow! Where do I find big-bike roads like that near STL? The dirt and gravel roads look amazing! I'm sooo tired of fighting traffic!
Take I44 and turn south.
Well that's helpful.
If you get around St Claire or Bourbon the head south to Potosi, Viburnum, and Eminence. Look at the great twisty roads through Mark Twain NF. Great area.
I just wish it wasn't a 6 hour drive for me to get there. Enjoy!
