    I wished I could've been able to ride with you guys, but work kind of got in my way. One of these weekends, we will meet up for a ride.

    You are correct that was me, I had a feeling you were a fellow ADV member when we met. I was headed to Walmart then to work. For the start of my 7 days of 4-12. Would love to get together for a ride!!

    I'm in Quincy too. Not able to get out much. Usually hit the rural asphalt then cut across some gravel. Venture over to Missouri more often than not as you can go quite ways without pavement. Unfortunately it's sometimes a lot of loose gravel.

    The Guys that post here from the Quincy area are so lucky! I went to school there back in the '70s, and enjoyed riding the area. 79 is a fantastic road, and the road from Palmyra to Hannibal is a thriller to get to 79 that also goes south to STL. Has to be some tracks along the levee that we in Eastern IL would die for.
    Sometime soon, my plan is to get back over there, and see how the times have changed things. Is the bench still at Riverview Park overlook that a young boy and girl found love?

    I don't know about a bench in Riverview Park, there might be one there. I don't mind running or biking through there on a Saturday morning. The last time my wife and I went through there a few years back on the motorcycle in the evening, there were some shady looking people around. This area does have some great riding, but I'm ready to get away from home and see some country elsewhere.

    Let's meet up for a Kampsville Ferry ride soon before the Fall Color Drive when the roads are full of tourists. For Whalen and I it is a 500 mi. round trip.
    Or a stay over? Maybe head on to Brussels for a time at the Whitmond for a real social. Any interest?

    Where does the ride begin and end? I'm looking for a nice ride before I anchor the bike down for the season.

    Whalen, you going to be at the Raceway for the show ? PM me and we may be able to get a ride strategy set up in person there.

    I'm off of work this week. I'm planning on riding some paved roads. No exact plan in mind. If anyone wants to join me, just give me a shout.
