The route of the Show Me 200 is not shared with the public. Even the paid riders are not allowed to have a GPS's and are checked before they can ride the event. All though I'm sure there are people out there that have it and give it out. Reasons for not sharing: 1) It is a ride put on by volunteers, of the MTRA, for the purpose of making money to support the MTRA's efforts to create and maintain off road trails that can be used by the public on land owned by the MTRA, our campground, showers, well and equipment. (You can ride those trails any weekend that the MTRA/VTRA in open from Mar. to Oct.) 2) It crosses land owned by 14 private landowners, Doe Run Corp. and the National Forest Service. The MTRA secures permission from those 14 land owners. With Doe Run Corp we provide them with liability insurance and liability releases for that event. We must even give Doe Run liability releases and a list of names anytime we enter their land for maintenance and pre-rides. 3) We work with the National Forest Service to secure Special Use Permits to use closed trails and roads that are not open to public use. Stipulations in these Special Use Permits require us to maintain these "close to the public" trails and roads. Even if they are damaged by use other than ours, we have to fix them. Their thinking is we are the only ones allowed to use them so we must maintain them or keep illegal use off of them. (We ran into this scenario 2 years ago, where someone with a Jeep tore up some water bars, my wife and I spent a whole day with the club's skid steer fixing the damage before they would renew our permit for the next year. And we could not use the trail that year.) 4) The route does change from year to year. Most recently because the EPA got involved and we were threaten with fines if we came with 300yd of a Waste Management Area, (WMA). WMA is any place the mine; dug a hole, ran drain water, stored spoils, had erosion, flooded or any number of other places where ground or water is disturbed. Also much of the land changes owners from a "friendly" to an "unfriendly" owner, regularly. Many times the owners log an area and we must re-route. So in a summary; riding it anytime other than the event could get you arrested, fined by the EPA and/or cause the club to lose use of the land. And our income and ability to maintain our property for public use. If you ride it will you get in trouble? In all likelihood probably not. If I see you out there will I have you arrested? Dam sure, and it won't be the first time. You are invited to sign-up ride it the first weekend in June! BUT if the 1200GS listed in your signature line is your only bike I'm very sure you could not make even the first 1/10 mile. The route has been described as "a Hare Scramble with short gravel sections connecting the single track". All the participants are on dirt bikes with a plate. The Show Me 500 would be a great ride for you on a 120GS, you should come on down and ride that! And if you're in the area contact me, I know a lot of riding in the area and I'm always ready to ride.
