87 north leaving California is ok, about the same as going to Eldon. Once you get past ...past trying to remember that damn little town
Oh damn I cant remember, and to think I got married there
anyways hang a right following the Louis and Clark trail until you come to a stop sign and then follow that to JC.
The better Missouri roads are past Hwy 54 going south, or South of the lake. They get even better once your south of I-44.
From Sedallia though, go to 87S to Eldon Left to Russelville Right onto A or AA last right leaving Russelville. Ride that to Hwy54 Left On 54 to Brazil right going to Eugene, right onto BB left onto 17 to Tuscumbia Left at the Bridge to to damnit forgot another town...the one before Crocker, right on that road going to the lake, then left at a gas station to crocker, back onto 17 then as your leaving crocker hang a right going to Richland right at the stop sign through town right at the light (reasturant) left going to sleeper right at the stop sign then back left until the next stop sign, right over the tracks right where the road splits back to the lake. Takes about 3 hours. A fun little route though. Careful on the road going to sleeper it has a few decreasing radius that sneak up on you, but it is newly repaved
BTW I grew up in Missouri and come back at least once a year to ride. My Dad lives in Russelville, Sister in California...then a crap load of family all over the place. I know my way around pretty decent in those hills
Theres a guy in russelville that rides an SB8R Bimota...and another in Camdenton that runs a VFR with a plate that reads "Geezer" you cant miss either, and they are both pretty damn fast, fun guys to run with though.
