Hello,

I'll be moving to St Louis sometime in November. I'm glad to see that there are other Ducati nuts there. Hope to meet you guys/gals at some point.

Cheers,
Matt

Thnx everyone! The move is for work but I'm looking forward to exploring the area.
So where does everyone ride? Are there any roads with twisties in the area?

Oh yeah, we have twisties...perhaps not on par with those in CO (especially regarding scenery) but if you want to go out and ride 35-40 mph marked corners all day long there are plenty of options. Mostly south and west of StL. You will find fewer of the high speed sweepers that are common headed into the mountains in CO.

We typically have no problem scheduling 4-6 hour long rides leaving the city and never having to get off the twisties. If you ride southwest you could ride through the Ozarks all the way to OK on two lane blacktop. If you head back through norther AR you have about 3-4 days of non-stop twisties.

Due to ice age glaciation going north or east things flatten out pretty quick and the roads get fairly straight but there is also limited good riding in IL and north of the city.

btw...welcome.

Thanks for all the replies! I cant wait to go for a ride with you guys. Do you guys do any track days? If anyone is up for one, there will be a Duc only track day in Jennings, FL on the 23rd.

Cheers,
Matt
