Sometimes you just have to get away. The weather was half decent and I had an appointment with my motorcycle to get away. I rode up to the Missouri/Mississippi confluence. Its a decent length ride and has some gravel roads to play on. The sunset was perfect and I loved every second of it!
In an effort to extend my motorcycle riding season, I had Flying Tiger install a set of heated hand grips. The cost of the grips plus installation was $300, but money well spent.
The button with the LO to HI is the controller for the different heat settings.
I can say without a doubt that it was worth every penny. Having warm hands makes a huge difference for comfort. If you like to ride but don’t like being cold, its worth it!
I took another evening ride going north.
I ended up in the land between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. I was going to ride north to a free bridge, but it got late much sooner than I expected. So I gook some cool night photography and headed home on the Golden Eagle Ferry to save time.

Part of the joy of motorcycling for me is to be spontaneous. This means picking random roads to see where the go and stopping when you would continue in a car. Today’s ride had me out by Waterfall before I took a new road. I ended up in Pacific, Mo in an area I had been before. But I had never stopped at the overlook. So I parked at Jensen’s Point Overlook to hike up and check it out. Its just south of I-44 in Pacific, Mo on E. Osage Street. See map below.
Here are a few photos from the top. Its cool that you can see the river from the top.
