Total Trip Mileage so far: 4245 miles
At Columbia MO, I got back off the interstate and turned southeast on some nice secondary roads on to Cape Girardeau. My friend Ed Krass had recommended I stop at a BMW shop of one of his friends there. I got there late in the afternoon just as a group of his customers were getting ready to do a “Go to Dinner” ride. They invited me along so I got a chance for a nice ride around the area and a great dinner with them. After dinner they rode with me to the Mississippi river bridge. I rode on down past Paducah KY and stayed the night down by Lake Barkley.
