Gassville is just so perfect for the circuitous routes. Never stayed in Melbourne. Marshall? I met the owner of the little River Inn, there in Mammoth Spring, but it's not in the middle of the good stuff.
I was thinking about trying to include my nephew, Nick. Really cool 17 year old kid. He owns one of my old FZ1s. He's not comfortable on long, long rides, but he's good at riding his own ride when I unplug a bit in front of him. He's looking forward to me taking him for a longer, multi-day ride... so maybe a hoon ride shouldn't be his first... not sure.
Piedmont MO has some fun roads right around it, but there are only so many really GOOD ones around there.
In short, I'm wide open to suggestions. I don't have any track dates scheduled in April, so I'm open there too.
