Can't ride on November 2. I'll be working a Bridal show (lots of first time home buyers there ).

And yes Mr Critic, a 690e sounds perfect for mudd puddles . I should be back and riding more by next year, I gotta keep my nose to the old grindstone for now .

Forgot to mention, squallywally and I had a nice ride down to Walnut Point St. park on mostly gravel and some dirt.

We should do something like that again, I know a sweet route east of here.

I'm in Urbana and had a great ride the other weekend with lots of gravel in vermillion county. Just sort of wandering around is always fun.

I need to get out to the meetup in Savoy sometime.

I'm very near Paris (just across the state line in Indiana), ride a KLR and am quite interested in your sweet route east of Urbana..

So, who is in for Sunday Nov 2? We can do SquallyWallys gravel route east to Indiana. The weather looks good according to weather.com for what that's worth.

SquallyWally, are you gonna be our tour guide? Where do we meet and at what time?

It makes me no difference, say around 9 to 10am, wherever we decide to meet?

Does anyone know Squallys route?

If not, I know of some pretty good stuff south and west of Mahomet. I could lay out 75 to 150 miles. I am sure CATGS has some shortcuts down there as well. There is a little gravel, a little farmer two track, and some twistys west of Mahomet.

If we ride out of Mahomet, we could meet at McDonalds on 150, east of Mahomet at 9ish and hit the road at 10am?
