The tentative plan would be to run it from Minnesota, south to Missouri and then along the southern tier of the state (with a couple of jaunts north of 80) to the Missouri River...

I have been scouring Google Earth for points of interest and so far, the water crossings, the antique tractor graveyard, several nice river overlooks are the highlights...and that's just the eastern 1/6th of the state. Hehe.

Awesome idea. We've roughed out at least one way to get to around Dubuque. From there, we need to find a way to Keokuk, and then find the interesting things that are "must see" things over to the Missouri. South of Dubuque looks . . . uh . . . like there's not that much there. Riverside -- future birth place of Captain Kirk.

There's some decent stuff along the Iowa river around the Amanas. Now that I finally have a GPS I can record some tracks. Give me an excuse to go ride them again. There's 3-4 water crossings and some nice scenic B roads.

That's my stompin' grounds...... I'm just south of Bellevue. Anyone heading this way, let me know. Got some nice woods and pastures to ride, and nice back roads.

Met ya at Doug's on my 640 Adventure awhile back.

You had your bike in there for problems back then too.

After seeing your issues with your MTS I think I will pass on that red one and keep my 12 year old reliable 640.

Yes a KTM and reliable in the same sentence!?!?! It sometimes happens! :)
