I've a van to pick up in Kansas City, MO later this summer/early fall. Living in the PNW, this presents an opportunity to ride the western TAT from west to east. The bikes can be loaded up in the van for the return trip. For those who have done it, where would you depart the TAT to head north to Kansas City? Many options, no doubt - but I'd hate to head north too far west and miss something worth seeing. Any departure spot should avoid interstates, as our lowly XT250's aren't too happy beyond 60MPH. Suggestions?
