This is a great ride around Missouri. Very little traffic on Hwy. 6 across N. Missouri. When 6 ends, we took a jaunt across the Mississippi into Quincy Illinois and stopped at the locks there to watch the barges go from one level of the river to the next.
We followed the river road down to Hannibal on the Illinois side.
Spent the night in Mark Twain's hometown, Hannibal. This is also the starting point of the Litte Dixie Highway, another great ride along the river to St. Louis.
Instead of that, we set our sights on Hwy. 19 and followed it from start to finish (in ARkansas).
The ride offers everything you would want.
The best section is from Salem to Cuba, through the Mark Twain National Forest. It is all curves and ups and downs.
At the end of 19, we had to go the extra two miles to get into Arkansas.
Then back to the route, taking 142 to 160 to Forsyth. Then we rode Historic 76 into Branson, where we spent the night. Again, nothing but great twisting roads.
The 3rd day, we headed straight up 65, all the way to the end at Marshall, MO.From there it was 24 Hwy., which is both an historic and recommended touring road.
