This Route is in SW. Missouri. It runs from Hwy 90&43 just north of Southwest City Mo. All the way to Washburn, Mo. The starting point of Southwest City Mo. is in the extreme far southwest corner of Mo. ... an Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri border.
Good Ozark scenery - bluff overhangs, rivers with rolling hills and hollers.
Lots of twist and turns and hills. Road condition is good. Stay sharp you will meet chicken trucks and driveways on top of the hills. A good road to ride from Noel, Mo to Washburn, Mo. It's a good ride from Washburn to Branson, Mo or Eureka springs, Ar.
Many camping areas. Rivers to float. A must stop is the old Sims General Store. Great front porch and rest area. They have gas drinks and the best BBQ you have ever eaten. They smoke their own ribs, brisket, pork and beans. Good hand dipped ice cream. Friendly people with a sweet store dog named Sims. They are located at the corner of Hwy 90&E.
Took a ride from neosho down Old Hwy 71 to 59 then into Noel. the ride along this small stretch of 59 is beautifual and runs along the elk river - big overhangs make for great scenery - but keep sharp there is plenty of traffic - i rode it in 30 deg. temps so you also need to keep an eye out for black ice as the water drops from the over hangs and freezes on the road.Run from Noel to washbun on hwy 90 is pretty good lights of tight twisties, moderate speed run, watch traffic as the road is narrow, also watch for gravel on the road, lots of it and mostly and corners.
90 intersects with 37, you can run south on 37 into Eureka springs for a good ride or make a loop on 37 N to Hwy 60 then back to Neosho. round trip is abpout 100 miles.

1/08 I live on KK and 90. We have a Vulcan Nomad and love it! The beauty hills, valleys, creeks, woods, and delightful ride cannot be described in a few words. I reccommend this ride in the Spring and Fall. At sunrise and sunset! We traverse this road every day and never tire of it! Sims store is a must see. Old hometown deli and grocery store. Stop by for coffee and a chat with the locals. We are all friendly and enjoy seeing motorcyclists drop in.
