Rode from St. Charles to Jefferson City.
Truly enjoyed the ride.
The small wineries all had live music and probably will through October.
The twisties will keep you on your toes.
If you're from Missouri that last 5 miles before you get into Jefferson City will make you proud seeing our state capital building on the horizon.

The ride from Weldon Springs to Dutzow along Highway 94 is about twenty six miles of curvy twists and turns without a stop sign or traffic light.
It will appeal to any rider looking for a fun filled ride through the Missouri wine country, as it follows the course of the Missouri River and parallels the Katy Trail.
Most of the road is well paved and there are just enough sweeping turns and vista views to let you relax for a few seconds before getting into the next set of curves.
Watch for oncoming traffic that might be crossing the double yellow line and don't misjudge your speed in the blind curves, as some of them sweep down and away or up and around a hill, especially going through Augusta.
Stop in Defiance for a beer at one of the two biker bars or opt for a glass at the brewery in Augusta or one of the many wineries in the area.
Most have spectacular views across the Missouri River valley.
Well worth the effort to ride this road.
It does get a little crowded on weekends.
During the week or early in the morning or late afternoon there will be a lot less traffic.
Check the road atlas and ride some of the other twisty roads in the area like Highway T, Highway D, or DD, or TT, and make up your own loop for a great ride.

I really enjoyed it, the ride from St. Charles to Weldon Springs wasn't anything to write about, but when it went to 2 lanes, I loved it!
Now I didn't get much over 50mph, but it was great all the way to Hermann.
The stretch from Hermann to Jefferson City would have been a great time for a nap if I could have slept on my bike.
Oh yeah, be aware of the trucks and cars coming from the opposite direction that seem to forget that they are supposed to stay in their lane.

Please be aware that Highway 94 from Augusta to Herman in Missouri has been recently chiped and sealed.
Thus making it unsafe for motorcycles for a while.
