DAY 27

Day 27 Monday September 23, 2013

Independence to St. Louis, MO

Today we had the opportunity to revisit our favorite German town on the Rhine. It is nestled on the banks of the river, its hills are covered with vineyards and Germanic culture wraps it all into a package called Hermann. You don’t have to fly across the sea to find it it’s right at the junction of SR19 and SR100 on the River Missouri in the State of Missouri.

Ten years ago the Fredericks, Lindleys, McCalls and Pritchards spent the night at the Hermann Hill B&B after the H-D 100th anniversary. We all vowed to return someday and today we did.

We turned off  I-70 onto SR19, an outstanding motorcycle road, for a 20 miles ride south to Hermann. We rode 19 from Hannibal, MO to Hermann in 2003. This year we wandered Main Street and had lunch at the Hermann Wurst House, German potato salad, bread pudding. The Wurstmeister insisted we sample 6 of his special sausages. Oh yeah, it was good. If you are ever riding in Missouri don’t miss this bite of old Germany on the Missouri River.
