Written Directions

From Bonner Springs KS, off I-70, going north on Kansas 7 through Leavenworth, and Atchison. Continues north to Rulo, NE.

Scenery

The road starts straight, but turns to curvy, in and out of the hills, and follows the Missouri River.

Drive Enjoyment

The road starts straight to Leavenworth, but after Leavenworth, the road is winding through the hills and valleys. It follows the Missuori River. Past Troy, KS, it drops into the river valley, and is curvy and tree lined the rest of the way to Rulo.

Tourism Opportunities

In Rulo, stop at the Bar and Grill at the Missouri River Bridge for an enjoyable meal of fried catfish. You will not be disapointed, and neither will your wallet. And, in White Cloud, KS, stop at the rest area right next to the river. Also, just west of White Cloud is an Indian Casino.

This is not real good motorcycle road. It can only be called a "motorcycle road" if compared to I-70 across Kansas. Most of the so called curves are 120 mph. Only scenery is farms, some woods and a few hills. A few curves while following the Missouri River and north of Levonworth. Forget about the road south of Atchinson: it is 4 lanes and mostly divided while going through commercial suburbia. All in all, I don't think its worth your time. I know it wasn't worth my time. I will be scratching this off my list of roads.

Great trip, not as curvy or tight as K-5 but still nice to follow the river. & Wild Bills Grill in Rulo was great
