Dawn will be riding to this event on her new Can Am Ryker 900, me on my Tmax.
We're going to take a relaxed 2 day going down, probably stopping in Eminence for the night.
If you made the Missouri rally, you're going to like this even more.

Check out:  Eagle's Landing River Resort    We stayed there 2 years ago on way back from Arkansas.  Nice rooms and a fantastic view.

That's probably where we'll be staying.

 Len & Karin better buy new tires before going there, Missouri roads gobbled up a set of new Diablos on me.

You mean these won't make it through another Rally?

You think it was the roads or the way we were riding?

Methinks there would be more guts than glory with those worn puppies ... been there done that already!

I'm in of course. I don't know where I'll be coming from, what I'll be riding, or where I'll be staying, but I'll be there.

We're definitely in ... our grandson graduates HS so there'll be no grandparents' day conflict to contend with (don't think they have such in college).  And his sister will just be in 8th grade.

And Hwy 19 down form Salem isn't a bad little road.  Will you visit the Mammoth springs state park? then 412 west?

Not during the rally no.  We do 19 as part of of regular riding within the state. This group did 19 at our Maxi Scoots Rally in Missouri a few years ago.

I think this year when Pete and a few of us leave St. Louis we will go 21 to 49 to K to 106 to Eminence and spend the night so our friends from out of state can see Alley Spring and that area.  Once we leave I will go 106 to 17 to 137 South then 76 to Kissee Mills to 160 to 125 to the ferry then into Harrison.   We make for a fun two day trip from St. Louis.

We might join you on the trip down.  :2tu:

Coolio!  I think Cathy and Bob will be with us.  Maybe Joan if easy enough for her, leave the trailer at our place and ride down?  I forgot to talk about that when we saw her last month.   

We figured since we had the time would be easy enough to make the trip down 2 days.  My only concern is we might not get to stay in Eminence since it's the Sunday night of a Labor Day weekend.   If that's the case we could find something in West Plains or Thayer I'm sure then take the beautiful 160 or 142 all the way across the MO.  We'll figure it out, we always do.

You're right, Sunday on a float trip weekend, it'll be wall to wall in Eminence.

If we stay in Thayer.. we could do a Push Mt Loop into Harrison :-)  It's only 154 miles.   Arkansas 223 off of 9 is a very fun road as well.

There's a couple of nice options in Mammoth as well.  We will work it out after the New Year :-)

I imagine there's a good chance we'd ride along from St L as well.

I'm a 'possible attendee' for '20, I'd very much enjoy FINALLY meeting some of the members here.

Whhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaattttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!  :-)     (then you can help me convince everyone that Black Hills 2021 would be a suitable rally place.)

I've driven through there and would enjoy riding there too. I'll be only 78 then so I can mark one more thing off of my bucket list.

Well, it's a bit west of central in location...east to west, so that's good....I think...though it's a tich to the northern end of things, but I mean that in a good way....for me anyway.

Plenty of camping space, and plenty of hotel accommodations....unless it's near rally time, that is, but even then you can find a room if you're persistent in your search, just bring a saddlebag full of money and it's unlikely that you'll have to sleep on a picnic table in a the city park...but that's not allowed anyway, so never mind, just stay away the hell from here from about August 1st through about the 15th, unless you actually like the chaos, congestion, and price gouging of the Sturgis Rally.

Lots and lots of great roads, and many historically interesting places.

There's some enormously large, carved, stone faces down there in the southern region of the Black Hills....or so I'm told.

There's a bunch of Buffalo, Pronghorn, and a zillion Prairie Dogs walking around Custer State Park....but you're not allowed to feed or pet them....especially the Buffalo, they get all testy when you bug them.

Not a lot of mosquitos, though some, and normally low humidity, though there is always a chance of a biblical hailstorm from any squall that rolls through, usually about every other day from May through August.

The rattlesnakes are shy, and I've only seen two since 1993.

There's Mountain Lions, but they haven't eaten anyone yet, as far as I know.

Lots of motorcycle dealerships in the area for parts and service if needed...though they will probably have to order anything more unusual than a spark plug.

I have a nice garage and a decent pickup truck for vehicular emergencies if needed.

I know all the good roads in the region.

How am I doing so far?

Don't think I'm a possible attendee; but like John said,  it would be great to meet some the Maxi Scoots members, if they are of the same great caliber,(and why-ever would that not be so! ), of the Maxi Scoots members I met this fall. Greg and Peggy, and Bill and Linda visited here; but only for the one day;-( 
We had a blast.  It was the highlight of our summer.

Anyone with a little time - try to work in MO T and 125 and 160 out of Ava MO.  T is an a perfect road both ways.  160 is nice, but a lot of traffic.

I agree with Carolyn, if you don't plan to ride with me on the long Friday ride to Mt Magazine, I would head north and hit Hwt T.  (there is a Lambert's Throwed Rolls near by)

If you want me to work up a route, I will.
