Other than the lousy off road area in Fulton, and Finger Lakes, are there any decent dual sport rides in Mid- Mo?

I've worn out the gravel roads that are north and west of Columbia up towards Glasgow.

Anything good near Rolla or Lake of the Ozarks?

Any tips will be appreciated. Thanks
Welcome to the asylum
Dual sport rides IDK, but SBR is coming up, http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=858276 nothing off road but fun ride, fun people. Link ran this out of his place http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=868646 I think it will become a annual event. And yes there is great stuff around Rolla and east. L of O sorry can't help, but I bet there is some. All of Mid-MO. is decent dual sport IMHO. The 24th annual "Show Me 200" is in June, but you better be good to ride this on a KLR, although it's been done.

You came to the right place troll around here and you'll find some ridin'.

BTW here's a shameless plug for my own fall ride the Pucky Huddle Breakfast Run the first official one will be September 28th & 29th. 200 plus miles per day. From Ste Genevieve to Viburnum and back. The final pre-ride is next week, then I'll post info here when the tracks are complete.
