I waited until 10:30. Nobody else showed so I went ahead and went for a ride. Went south on Abbot road to Eugene. I had heard about a railroad tunnel people used to ride through but I had never been able to find it. With the vegetation down I was able to find it but I believe it is to overgrown to ride to now. Then I headed south on Eugene road to Saline Creek road, across Saline Creek to Woods road. Came close to dropping it at the intersection of Catfish rd. Traction was really good because the roads were wet so I was going a little faster than normal .The turn to Catfish rd is more than a 90 and the back tire must have hit a big rock the way it felt. Managed to get my foot off the peg and caught the bike. Thought I had hurt my knee for about a half mile but it's fine now. Went through Tuscumbia to HH. Followed it till it turned to gravel and rode beside the Osage for a while then went back to Eldon and stopped at a carwash and hosed me and the bike off.

I didn't realize until late in the evening I had the PM. Need to check that next time. The gravel roads were great though. Even the recently graded ones rode pretty good.

Hi guys, I'm in Mexico and will travel anywhere. Just give me a couple days and I'll be there. I have a KTM Adv 990. Hope to get together soon. I check in every night.

Columbia MO

I have recently moved to Columbia from Marshall as I am going back to school. I would like to hook up with anyone interested in dual-sport, adventure or trials riding. At the moment I have Saturdays and Sundays free.

Some recent riding pics in the area:

Are those pictures from the Columbia area? I am off from Christmas through New Years but my son comes in from China for his once a year visit so I can't really spend any time riding while he is here. After that if we keep getting the kind of weather we have been I would enjoy seeing some of the sights in your pictures in person.

Nice bike Steve. I'm riding a blue F650GS around Columbia on occasions. Since coming back from Alaska on it I have not been able to ride in the cold for some reason. Even at 60 degrees I get cold now so it looks like I won't be riding until spring.

There are some great old roads in northern Moniteau and southern Cooper Counties that I ride occasionally. The best challenge on a road is Devil's Backbone road east of the airport. There is also some good roads south of the airport. If we can get a warm day next month I would love to ride some.

I have done some exploring south and east of the airport, found the Devil's Backbone, beautiful place! I spotted some abandoned roads around the area, but not knowing if they are public or private, I haven't ventured down them. I ventured north of Columbia today, but it's pretty densely populated the places I went. I recently rode a route I found on Dualsportmaps.com east of Fulton.....it was a nice ride.

I cut across MO once coming to IL from OK. Been wanting to get back down there and explore. If I remember between Jefferson City and Hermann I had a good time. Anyone got any good suggestions or routes in that area? I would like to get back down there, base out of Hermann and ride around that area.

I'd like to ride some gravel and dirt if possible. I would be on my KTM 950SE.
