    Missouri riders

    Check in here!

    I live in Rolla during the school year and Saint Charles (suburb of Saint Louis) the rest of the time. I'm always riding and looking for people to work on projects with.

    What about you?

    Nathan, we used to live at the Lake Of The Ozarks which isn't too far from you. We moved to Florida in the early 70's and then moved to Tennessee in 78. I rode a Norton when we lived at the Lake and didn't but my first BMW until 77. We try to get up there once or twice a year to visit family and old friends.

    SW Missouri

    I'm checking in from extreme SW Missouri in Joplin. I can almost claim three other states, as my house is (as the crow flies) 5 miles from Kansas, 7 miles from Oklahoma, and 41 miles from Arkansas.
    We have a nice variety of terrain to choose from here at the interface between the Kansas prairie and the Ozarks. Mild winters, too

    The office where I work is located on historic Route 66.

    Hey Nathan... St. Louis here. Looking at a quite possible 60?? F Sunday here. Nice for December in the home of the '06 WS Champions. And the home of the MOA- lest I forget!

    Another check in from Joplin Mo. If you see the Blue R1150rs with the bright green jacket, wave.

    I'll watch for you. I usually am either riding my Red Airhead GS with Jesse panniers
    or a Black Ural Sidecar rig. I also have a '99 Black and White Cop Bike R1100RTP and an '88 K100 which I am currently in the process of getting re-painted from the ugly Brown stock color.

    Yes, and Saturday doesn't look half bad, either. I think i'll ride out to Dave Clark's place to deliver club newsletters, and I may go to Gateway BMW, too, if I have time.

    I lived in Cape Girardeau from 96 through 01. I live in Memphis now, but still prefer to ride in the triangle that is formed by I44, 67 & the border of AR.

    My old purple GS got 90% of its miles within that triangle.


    Last year I made less trips into MO and started riding NW AR. There seem to be alot more bikes and police in this area, but the roads might be a touch better. I guess it's a trade off.


    I have been in the swampland of Memphis for 7 years and 2 days. No matter how you slice it good roads are at least 100 miles away.

    I drive from Springfield, IL to Dallas TX right by Rolla 3 or 4 times a year. We sometimes stop and eat and one of your restaurants. Seems like an OK town.

    I was riding back from looking at the clean up in Picher, OK. It went from nice to pull over and put on my winter stuff in 1/4 mile, I have never seen one that intense. I was real glad I had the good gloves and liner for my jacket, it would have been a really unpleasant ride home otherwise.

    Now we are having a thunder sleet storm. Guess riding tomorrow is out.

    Sure am glad I got in about 150 miles today. It will have to last.

    Rode about 200 miles south and west of St. Louis before the cold hit this past weekend. You have many great roads to choose in the area. I second the Gateway Riders club. Unfortunately, most of the rides are on Sunday mornings and it is tough for me to make it. Great bunch to ride with and easy to fit with as well.
