    Falling Leaf

    How come no chatter about the "falling leaf" rally. Everyone too busy? Or is no one going?

    At our local club meeting last night, a large percentage of our membership is planning to go.

    I've been watching the weather forcasts, and looks like rain Saturday, and possibly Sunday!
    Can we say Frogtogs?

    Several of us from Bloomington, IL will be there. I am headed that way today to explore areas of Mo. especially the old route 66. There are old mom and pop motels, restaurants and great roads along the route. "Get your kicks on route 66............."

    Riding in Mo. is a treat for us central IL flatlanders.
