    I'll need a rain check on this morning, but it sounds great. Keep at it.

    I wish I would have logged on Friday night I would have made the trip to Springfield Saturday morning, instead I did a 250 mile solo ride exploring some new roads north of me. Next time there is a mexican breakfast involved I must be notified!!

    Maybe try a breakfast around Havana , looks central to the Knox co. guys, Quincy, and Farmer City.
    I'm not familiar with that area. Any local cuisine to sample???

    Hey I should automatically be a charter member for starting this thread!! lol

    Farmer City isn't very central for most of the guys of who have expressed interest in this thread but if you like fish tacos the Fish Wagon has the best I have had around here (they also have burgers and other stuff). If anyone was interested in meeting up there for lunch sometime and a ride to and around Allerton Park in Monticello that might be a decent day.

    My wife and I happen to have tomorrow off work so we are heading to Lincoln Illinois to try a little coffee and pastry shop called By the Bean. Then we are going to do a little Route 66 ride up through Atlanta, McLean and Bloomington. This will be the longest ride my wife has ever been on so we will see how she does!!

    Hopefully, your sport bike is more comfortable than most. She may need more breaks than you do.

    I'm hoping to be able to go out for a ride Saturday. If anyone on this thread has any interest in meeting up, post your reply. I don't know if the Lewiston or Havana area might be a more central location?

    It's not terrible, has a sergeant gel seat and raised cat eye adjustable clip ons so I sit up straighter which also sits her up to. Eventually there will be a multistrada in the garage outfitted to anywhere I want but for now the supersport will have to do.

    I wish I could ride Saturday but we are taking my son and nieces up to starved rock state park to hike.

    Just got home from our morning Route 66 ride. It was pretty cool this morning but it was worth it for the latte and cinnamon rolls. The wife did well, made sure we made plenty of stops.
