    Riding from Cleveland to Sedalia

    Going to head to my first rally on Wed the 18th from west of Cleveland OH around 7pm. Thinking of stopping someplace West of Indy and arrive mid-day Thursday. If anyone is going through or from Cleveland via I-75 to I-70around that time and would like to meet up for the ride, I'd be happy to have someone to ride with.

    I'm leaving Mount Vernon, Ohio on Wednesday, but about 12 hours earlier than you are. I'm stopping for the night about 400 out in western Illinois. It is another 250 or so to Sedalia to finish on Thursday.

    Does not look like our schedules will mesh.

    I have been to more than 15 of the BMWMOA and BMWRA national/international rallies starting in the late 1970's. I trust you will enjoy your first of these large scale events.

    I would suggest taking the turnpike over to Indiana and then 69 south to Indy. It is about 30 miles longer but a much easier ride than 71/70.

    I have not made up my mind if and when I will be leaving. But 70 through St. Louis is heavily traveled, stay to the north on the outer belt if you go that way. I debated going west out of Indy and cross into Missouri on Rt36 then work my way south.

    I just reurned from Denver and 70 between KC and St. Louis was the worst part of the trip. If you want to talk email me your phone number.

    Good Luck.

    We are heading out of northwest Indiana Thursday early am, I was thinking about just heading down to 70 and across, or running across 72/74 and avoiding St. Louis. Maybe we will see you along way.

    Heading to Sedalia,,

    Will be leaving near Springfield, Il early Thursday morn, around 6 or so to beat the heat, I-72 west to State Rt. 54 which is a two lane to I-70 which we'll pick up east of Columbia, Mo then on over to Sedalia, about 250 miles or so, nice mix of super slab and 2 lane...

    I am also leaving from Springfield at about 5am. Is Rt 54 mostly 2 lane down to
    I-70?
