If anyone else is planning for this trip, put out a list of what you might be packing as far as tent, food, tools, clothes, ETC. I want to be equipped properly, as this would be the longest outing. This would be assuming I would bike down instead of trailering. Thanks!
It's not cheating trailering down there....that used to be the general location for the Fall Color Tour that was held in Clarksville, AR every year. There are so many gravel and offroad riding areas down that way that it's nice to wear yourself while you are down there knowing you can take it easy driving home in your vehicle.

If you go to the Central GPS Forum there should be some old posts and tracks for the riding. Search for Fall Color Tour. A buddy I met down there TbirdSP will have them uploaded. It used to be split up into the Adventure Tracks for bigger bikes and Knobby Tracks with some tough offroad thrown in.

It is one of the most beautiful places to go that is within 8 hours of St. Louis....make sure you ride down by Mount Magazine if you do go.....some stunning views and great forest roads and trails too.

I am thinking about SLAP this year but it is the same weekend as a mtn bike event I attend in Arkansas so I'll have to flip a coin.

I took an adventure ride today... snow on the gound, ice in the air and water running down my neck

I HAD to try out my new Gerbing gloves. They are incredible. I thought heated grips were great, but heated gloves are where it's at.

Happy New Year, Missouri ADV Thread!

And a complete heated outfit is even better!

Yes, I use a heated jacket liner, too. My legs never seem to get that cold, but having them be actively warm sounds like a real treat.

Not sure if we can get out tomorrow or not, sounds like some significant snow down south, which is where most of the good stuff is.

Could do a short spin around St. Charles County I suppose, unless someone has got some better ideas?
Thank you Hazmat and apologies for not replying sooner - between the busy season at the hotel, a bout of stomach flu and getting ready for a trip to Europ next week it has been a rotton few weeks really. Hope to get together when I return to the States in Feb.

Thank you. I had to jump on it to beat Mark to the punch, Sorry Bigdog...I'm sure you'll find one before long.

You bought the 690 from the guy in Nashville(I think it was Nashville) about 3.5 seconds after it went up for sale, none of us had a chance
