the "letter" roads of SW St. Charles county are pretty good. Defiance / Marthasville / Dutzow / New Melle area are some of my favorites. Wildwood west, take county T through Labadie of MO100. MO94 is a nice drive, actually from Defiance to Jeff City, with hilly/curved parts and then some nice cruising in between. Just avoid weekends when it's crowded and when folks are leaving the wineries.

If you're making a day of it, Hwy 19 from Eminence north is a delight; about 35 miles of posted-30 curves and hills. So is MO106 from Eminence to Ellington (at MO21 junction), but more of a scenic drive through woods, not much development or traffic. Letter roads in those counties also are generally a lot of fun; you're in a hilly part of the state, so minor roads go up/down/around. That makes for great motoring!

HTH. I have the motorcycle passion also, so much of the fun-to-ride places translate into great motoring roads. Google "motorcycle roads" for a location and you'll usually get some good ideas of what would be fun to try.

I just found this great road called Old Wild Horse Creek Rd over in Chesterfield. It's super easy to get to as well, take 64/40 to Chesterfield Airport/Long Rd, and basically keep going straight along the road until it turns into wild horse creek rd. The twisties are on average speed limit of 30 so it's a little slow but when I went there was barely any traffic. The end of the road connects over to Highway 100 as well.
Check it out! I think you guys won't be disappointed.
