Good luck. A few weeks ago I was all over St. Louis and stayed in a campground not far from union Mo.
If you're camping it's a nice place maybe 10 miles farther.

We had a bit of gear.
As for the goldwing thing. Sometimes it's easier to go with it than correct/inform people. They're both reliable bikes.
