Most of the state is already several inches behind on rain, so the severe weather reports are somewhat exaggerated. I live in the southwest area of the state near Springfield. There are superb day rides from St. Louis up and down the historical Mississipi River back along the I-70 corridor back to Columbia toward Kansas City, and south of I-44 in the Ozarks region with some hilly twisty roads that will test your VN to the limit. Just make sure your tires have good tread. As mentioned above, the winery country can be found along the I-70 corridor and also along the I-44 corridor. Enjoy your stay and by all means, bring your bike.
