    Want to do Group Ride Late Sept - Ozarks, Truman, etc

    Would like to get a few together for group ride !

    Anywhere within 200 miles or so of Kansas City area is fine.
    Have lost most of my riding buddies for various reasons in last couple of years
    and it sucks to go by myself.

    Thinking of a ride to "go somewhere" like the dam run at LOTO we do each year.
    I know there is couple of nice lakes in OK too.
    Open to suggestions

    Hey foggy, how ya been?
    I'm always up for a ride as long as conditions are rite. Cold temps don't bother me just wind/wave action. This old man can't handle the rough crap anymore. Also Please remember I am 7+ hours from the Ozarks.

    I can guarantee you that if you came up to ride my area on the Mississippi River you would make this an annual trip.

    Set a date and I'm sure you will get some riders.

    I'm so sorry for the wife and kids! Let's hope for the best!

    I do most of my riding on the Mississippi River just 50 miles north of Dubuque Iowa. We have calm water most of the time. Wild life everywhere, sand bars to park the skis & have a bonfire, Backwaters to ride, etc..... You'll just have to check it out sometime.

    I am looking at Sept 25 -sat OR Sept 26 -sun as a good date.
    Would like to try a Dam to Dam run.
    Not sure on logistics of exactly where to put in at.

    Dam to dam is 100 miles each way. How about just putting in around the 42mm and riding to the Truman Dam and back?
