From a KOA in Limon, Colorado, I rode the interstate all day through Kansas and reached Topeka. Next, a second full day of riding in Kansas and Missouri (Mih-zoo-rah) , then through the Ozarks of Oklahoma to get to Memphis Tennessee at around 11pm. Four states in one day again!
The motel, complete with a guitar-shaped pool, was right next to Graceland that I had to visit (guilty pleasure).
I then made a quick stop at the Lorraine motel, turned into a civil rights museum, site of Martin Luther King's assassination in 1968.
