WTF kinda training you gonna get in Monett???
If you must go to Monett, in your free time, head south. Some really nice riding there. Kinda dull around Monett, as is Monett. Just remember, Missouri is a Helmet Law state, put it on before you enter. Some cops are pure assholes about it. Some even lurk in Illinois and follow riders in to Missouri, lite them up right on the state line if they have no helmet (pure assholes). Others are nicer, they just remind you to put it on.
On your way up to St. Louis, you could hit the pieces of Route 66. Hutmo probably knows them all. Stop in Devil's Elbow for some BBQ at the Elbow Inn. Itsa Biker Bar, so have fun. In St. Louis, if you are there at meal time, hit Pappy's or Bogart's Smokehouse(s) for REALLY GOOD BBQ. Either one, they are both most excellent. (I prefer Bogart's, but not by much).
If you are headed east, stay off I-70, it is about as boring as can be. I-64 is better if you must use the Interstate. Less traffic, more scenic. If you want to stay off the Interstate, US-50 is pretty good between St. Louis and Cincinnati. Good spots, mixed with some dull ones, but it is easy to follow.
If you are coming up I-44 (old US-66), stop in at Bourbeuse Valley HD. It's at the US-50 Exit. Nice little store, one of my favorites around here. It is right on a section of old 66.
In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.
