Riding out with a bunch of buddies to Eureka Springs for a gathering on another motorcycle forum. Looks like I'll be leading! Well, looks more like I'm not a great group traveler cause I hate relinquishing control, so I'm working out my route and others will be going with me. I know, I know, I can be but atleast I can admit and be honest about it.
There really doesn't seem to be much between here and there. Got the route to Eureka Springs planned. We'll be headed into Kansas then up north to the geographic center of the continental US near Lebanon, KS and seeing the largest ball of twine built by a community in Cawker City, KS. Will overnight in Glen Elder State Park campground, with hotels nearby for those that wish not to camp. Route looks like this, split into two days:
That should give people an idea of about how far these guys are happy traveling in a day to stay comfortable - about 400 miles or so.
Now I am at a stalemate for locating a route back. As you can see, I like tacky roadside attractions. is the ideal way to spend the night, with a motel or two nearby for the folks coming that don't camp. Any help here guys?
Yes. I'm bored. I haven't been on the bike in a while. So, I'm down to route planning for a trip in August....
