I am coming to the end of my fiscal year and have vacation to burn. Looking at the maps, I think Springfield MO would make a real nice one day haul for me with some good windy roads along the way. Any of yall in STL and/or MCI or anywhere else in the MidWest interested in trying to find a weekend that looks good to meet in the middle and spend a night sharing adult beverages? Ride in Saturday, swap stories and ride home Sunday ....

I live 26 miles away from Springfield Missouri

I have the only FZ6 in the area. Springfield is my stomping ground. I'm apart of the SWMoSportbikes.com group. We have a deal with Hardee's to where we meet there anytime of the week to ride around and get discount food. On certain nights of the week we have bar nights. I know most of the twisties here. Hwy 125 is the best anyone will tell ya.

Can we find a spot with food and drink and beds all within walking distance. Alcohol and bikes don't mix in my book.

What weekends are good and bad for others ... I may be looking at something around Sept 11 or Oct 9 as my best chances, but in my world there is never a for sure ...

Check out SWMOSPORTBIKES.COM

springfield is a pretty big town. 3rd biggest to kansas city and st. louis. as for food and board thats no problem around here. Anyweekend is fine with me since I live here. I play football for Southwest Baptist University. So August wouldn't be very good because of two of days. September and October are better As long as I have a home game. Sept. 29 through Oct. 2 is the bike rally in Fayettsville ark. which is 2 hours South from here. Last year Jesse James and OCC was there.

I cant remember how the condition of hwy 13 is, havent been down that hwy in quite awhile.

Sounds like a plan. I usually take 71 down. I'll probably have my gf riding two up with me, therefore the hand holding will have to wait until some other time.

We need some recommendations for food and lodging. It would be nice to find a place where we have food/beer and hotels close together so we can walk to/from.
