Missed this post, but I got you down now.Confirmed as in. Trailering my KLR and staying at my BIL’s place near Rogers. Advice on tires: currently running TKC80 front and Mitas E-07 rear but will need new shoes by then. Recommendations for new tires and road conditions on this trip?

Not to worry.Hey pacman and FJRMike. I missed the group ride last year, but got to go during the Summer with my son. We did all asphalt (he was on a sport bike... "No dirt for you!") and enjoyed it a lot.
With the addition of dirt for this group ride (thank you, FJR!), I'm even more interested. I can't commit yet due to other commitments, but I'm curious about how technical the dirt will be. I don't mind a good challenge on dry(ish) ground, but I despise water crossings. At least the deep ones. I'm a whimp.. For me, deep = deeper than 6-8".
That was a fun jeep trail, and the hatchery was an interesting stop for me. Missouri has four trout parks, and I've fished at the other three many times but hadn't seen Roaring River until Mac led me there.El Chamiso may be able to tell you something about a secret jeep trail up a mountain that we may have or not have gone up behind a trout hatchery.

The aftermath of not much tire left on Tue when I started riding... 600 miles later
Sorry to hear that Randy. Hope you can make it some other time.I'm out. The weekend of this event collides again this year with a couple of commitments. Maybe next year (my 3rd try) will be the charm.
I would be grateful for dirt GPX tracks you all (plan to) ride. I might get up there sooner than Oct 2019.
Thanks to pacman for organizing and Mike for leading dirt.
Cheers and enjoy
