Missouri Motorcycle Road Trip Accommodations

Travels with Harley

If you are planning an extended motorcycle road trip, you will need a place to stay, unless of course you plan on camping. However, Jim isn’t one for camping on a motorcycle trip so I am always checking out hotels, motels, bed and breakfast places and little Inn’s that are friendly to people who are on a motorcycle road trip.

Jim and I have always wanted to explore our great country on the Road King, and if we ever get to retire, plan on it. In the meantime, I’ll do my research to make sure that we have lots of accommodations to choose from when we do go on another motorcycle road trip.

Some people like to go on a motorcycle road trip without making plans, but if you have been reading our blog, you will know that I am not one of those people. I like to know something about the restaurants that we will come across on our motorcycle road trip as well as the hotels and motels that we may consider staying in.

Because Missouri is where we call home, I thought I would mention a few hotels that are biker friendly if you are out on a motorcycle road trip in Missouri.

TTravels with Harleyhe Staybridge Suites are located on Keene Street in the historic Vista District in Columbia, MO and have a private parking lot just for motorcycles, something that you don’t see all that often if you are on a motorcycle road trip. The hotel offers free breakfast, always nice, an indoor heated pool, and a fitness center.

If you want to stay in a cabin or a room on your next Motorcycle Road Trip, you should book a night or two at the Kay Lynn Family Resort on the Lake of the Ozarks in Osage Beach. It has a private parking lot for motorcycles, free Wi-Fi, BBQ’s, tables and chairs and a kitchenette where you can cook your meals. Located just a few minutes from some of the best restaurants in the area, the Kay Lynn Resort has everything you need if you are heading out on a motorcycle road trip.

Not everyone likes to stay in a hotel, and if you would rather stay in a private home, check out Meeks Retreat. This vacation property features three bedrooms and two baths and is located on a 50-acre private wooded setting. With lake front views from the deck, you can relax in this wonderful retreat that is just 40 miles outside of Branson, MO. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need so you can kick back and relax before heading out on the next leg of your motorcycle road trip. Oh, and Meeks Retreat also has bike washing facilities and plenty of bike parking.

Next time we will head out to my old stomping grounds to look for some more places to stay on a motorcycle road trip.

Motorcycle Day Trips in Missouri

Travels with Harley

It has started to warm up a bit, but that isn’t expected to last with the cooler weather and rain returning in a few days. Jim and I are hoping to get a ride in sooner rather than later so I have been checking out some Motorcycle Day Trips in Missouri that we would like to enjoy once Mother Nature decides to play fair.

Missouri is full of outstanding Motorcycle Day Trips, as our beautiful state has been blessed with unspoiled scenery that is filled with rolling hills, country roads, and quaint villages. As you know, I like to eat, and Missouri certainly doesn’t disappoint with delicious eateries that range from diners and restaurants to roadside dive bars. Some of the bigger cities such as St. Louis, Branson, and Kansas City offer excellent hotels and restaurants that are perfect for Motorcycle Day Trips. The show me state also has several wineries that could show Napa a thing or two.

The Peach Float Cruise

Some of the more popular Motorcycle Day Trips include Branson to Table Rock Loop, the Mark Twain National Park Circle, the Missouri Highway V and T from Union Missouri to Wildwood Missouri, the Bagnell Dam Loop and the Missouri Route 86-Ride the Eagle. The Peach Float Cruise and the Rolla-Salem Loop also sound pretty cool if you want to take Motorcycle Day Trips in Missouri

Brian’s Quick Fun Ride is another example of one of the great Motorcycle Day Trips that you will find in Missouri. Taking you through sweeping curves and a few hills you will find yourself smack dab in the middle of Missouri farmland with lots of hills and some challenging curves. If you have been following our blog, you will know that Jim loves the curves. Located near Sedalia this short and fun ride is a favorite route among the locals and visitors for Motorcycle Day Trips.

Travels with Harley

Even if you take your time, the trip only takes about an hour and a half. Eateries along the way include El Tapatio and Goodies Steakburgers. Best fuel up in Sedalia though as you won’t find any gas along the way unless you take Highway 135 south just past Highway M to Highway 52 where you will travel east to Stover.

The Old School House on the Hill Ride takes you through Ozark Hill Country and features left and right rollercoaster hills with rhythmic curves. Follow the signs and you will get an awesome view of the Missouri River just before you hit the bridge on your way into Chamois. Although the ride isn’t fast or particularly long, it is quite beautiful. This is another example of Motorcycle Day Trips in Missouri that you will not want to miss.

Travels with Harley

Stop for the night at the Old School on the Hill Bed and Breakfast, which is located at the end of Main St. on the highest point in Chamois. The historical property looks over the beautiful Missouri River Valley and is very clean and comfortable. Although Chamois is a small town, you can fill up at the convenience store and wander across the street to Dandi’s. The full service local bar serves awesome pub fare and hosts live bands on the weekends.

Of course, I could go on and on, but I’m getting cabin fever just thinking about it as I can’t wait to head out for some awesome Motorcycle Day Trips with Jim this spring.
