Oct 1st ride

Bulldog and me are planing a ride on Oct 1, destination is Starved Rock or Galena what is the vote

1. Starved Rock Ride - Meeting up at the Silver Dollar
restruant for breakfast on Rt 47 and 71 for a ride to
Starved Rock, the leather shop and the JC Whitney
outlet with lunch being somewhere in Peru or Ottawa.

or...

2. Galena Ride - Meet up at the IHOP in Elgin for
breakfast and head out to Galena for whatever is
interesting. Maybe a stop at Poopies in Savanna.

So, what sounds like the plan???

i rode to galena recently. this was my longest trip and i obviously don't know any better but stagecaoach trail from Lena to Galena was litteraly breath taking. the blackjack to Hanuver was good too. the burger in Sabula IN was very hefty. the 52 was good but the mood was seriously down cause of the stalling problem. we never got north of Dubuque where it supposed to be most fun. i wouldn't mind doing it again. how about those IA guys?

let's hope for good weather!

Crap, I forgot my parents have their 40th anniversery party that weekend Sat and Sun. I would love to hook up with fellow 750 riders cause there are hardly any around here.

Looks like the Galena Ride it it. Will post more detail as it gets closer, If anyone wants to meet me at my house or around town we can go together to Breakfast.

Just a reminder of the upcoming ride in the Chicago area. We are starting at the IHOP in Elgin IL, 101 S Randall Rd, Elgin IL, 60123. Breakfast at 9 ride off at 10AM, nice backroads to Galena around lunch. Looks like about 130 miles one way from Ihop to Galena. Hope to see you there, weather is looking good will be chilly in the morning and in the 70's by the afternoon. Leaves should be starting to change beautiful roling hills and sweeping turns.
