    Quincy is high on the Bluffs -

    The lower areas near the river may be damp however.

    I can't ride the V-Rod in the rain until I get my stock fender(on Ebay right now and 2 days left for the auction) as I will get soaked.

    I sent you a PM. I can't ride (the V-Rod) in the rain and it looks like there will be plenty on Saturday. Sorry guys, I know you will miss me!

    Curt -

    It'll be you, me, Martin and perhaps his friend. Can you meet at the Corner Bakery?

    Thumbs up Great Trip

    753 miles in two days - Top speed for the participants varied. Greatly. Saturday sunny and mild - with some real cross winds. Sunday more variable, but worth the ride.

    What roads! Who knew Illinois had treasures like this!

    Ride report to follow as soon as I figure out the 'harder than it needs to be' photo posting system here.

    Turned out to be Curt, Martin and Bryan.

    Chicago Beemers Riding Club (CBRC)

    We started out early on Saturday morning, meeting up with Curt in Schaumburg at a coffee shop. At least I think it was, we were there before they opened.

    Heading West, we finally found a Bagel/Coffee shop open and we were able to start to bring Curt back to life.

    It was a beautiful Chicago day, clear, cool and dry with light breezes out of the West. As we cleared the suburbs to the West - staying off the slab - we passed through many small Illinois towns. Those farmers fortunate enough to have fields on higher ground look like they might have a good year - 'knee high by the Forth of July' - some of this corn was a lot higher than that.

    .

    We reached Rockford and headed South along the Rock River. Roads along Rivers are often enchanting, and this morning ride was no exception. Recent high water and flooding was evident, but along this small river damage was minimal. We flew from shade to sun and back, sweeping thru tiny towns - stopping for a break across from the statue of Chief Blackhawk.



    We stopped at the bridge over the Mississippi heading to Clinton, before doubling back to hit the River road South to the Quad Cities.



    Martin showed how fast his Yamaha was by terrifying Curt and me with a rather high speed passing technique. Not for the faint of heart.

    Eventually the Rock hits the Mississippi - here we stopped near the John Deere Museum for a quick lunch. No pictures here - Martin said he'd seen too many tractors growing up in Poland. (But I'll bet they weren't as pretty as a Deere!)

    More to come later...
