From I-70 take K-99 South to Alma (get some Alma Cheese!!!). At the South end of Main street take a right onto Old 10 Road. Follow it to Alta Vista. From Alta Vista you can continue to I-70 by Turning right (West) on K-4 to Hwy 177. Turn right on 177 and follow it North to I-70.
There is a lot of history along this route if you have time to look. Old farmsteads, flint rock fences, creeks, woodlands and prairie. In the early morning and late evening you have to keep a sharp eye out for deer, coons, opossums and other small critters. It is worth the ride to and from to see this road.
It is a sport bike's dream without the up-keep. No major potholes or obstructions but watch for the occasional patch or chipseal. The road has a ton of curves and the bumps we call "hills" in Kansas. It is an old road that pretty much follows the contour of the land.
There is a station at either end of the road in Alma and Alta Vista but be there during the 8-5 hours, they roll up the sidewalks early.
