    Hey guys, this thread is awesome.

    I want to ride this route across the state at the first inkling of good weather. Me and the KLX250 (soon to be KLX351) and I want to avoid pavement... singletrack>dirt>gravel>pavement

    Any idea what percentage of time is spent on each type of surface?

    Thanks for all the help and insight.

    I'm planning to ride Bash3r's TMOT South Track this week on the GS, 2-up with my wife. I'll report back on how it goes.

    Last week's ride was a great time. Rode TMOT from the north end, through Eminence, and on to Alley Spring Mill. It was raining a fair amount and the trail was getting slick with mud in spots, so we took to the pavement from there since I did not want to risk a drop with my wife onboard. We really loved the ride in Mark Twain National Forest, and the trail from Eminence to Alley Mill was the best part. Thanks for the route!

    Awesome MarkM!! Glad you enjoyed it... I've scouted a few more roads down in Eminence that I still want to ride one more time before I add them to the route... And the water crossings can get deadly slick!! Glad you were safe and hope your wife enjoyed it to... Ride Safe!

    Bash3r, thanks for putting this together! Yes on the slick water crossings, we found one slick as snot! The GS was losing its footing, but the crossing was short and we made it before there was time to go down. Another challenge was deep gravel in places. And then there was the property marked with the large hand-written sign, "TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT - DOG WILL BIT" (sic) We made it safely passed LOL!

    You can see on the first page the tracks included in the GPX file. Currently it is not north of I-70 to northern MO.. that still needs to be done. Enjoy

    Yes it does! I have tracks I need to piece together from St. Clair up through Hermann then up towards Mark Twain Lake... the best riding is south of I-70 so that's where I always find myself :)

    I believe that! Gets pretty flat north of I70. Would be nice to have it done just for gp up to the Iowa line anyway. I live down in SW MO. Surely there are some guys up in that area willing to work on it. Did you have thoughts of extending it from blue eye on west toward the Kansas, Oklahoma border?

    Yes that would be great.. It was my hope to have both a North/South & East/West trail for anyone to ride. There are some fellas in KS area that could probably lend a hand for the western MO border / OKie hand off. I'm just west of St. Charles so its a bit out of my vicinity :D Anyone?!?

    I would definitely be willing to give a hand in laying it out. I have a few friends I could probably get to work on it as well.

    that would be great. me and my buddy routed it south to Blue Eye to hand off to the TART.. and I rode with BigDog on most of his route as well to go east down south to the TART. Now if we can just finish it!

    I talked with my buddy Topnoch and he is willing to help out too. We are both busy with lots of rides going on now. It will probably be August at the earliest before we could get started. I talked to a fella in KS that was thinking of doing a KS trail down to link in with the TAT. Im hoping we could link it all together near the OK, KS, MO. border.
