    More than an hour. Im going to start in Keys, ride to Mtn View Meat company area on Hwy 100, then thru Rocky Mtn to Tailholt, if time allows continue across Barron fork at Welling, pass Salvation Army, cross 62 Hwy and down to Punkin Hollow and then up the east side of the Illinois on the gravel roads.

    Would be great if you can join me.

    I think 830 is good. Still cold at that time but I bundle up. :wink:

    We can move that start time around if you need. No problem. I could stop by the moto shop. Otherwise, 830 in front of the donut shop in Keys. Bring your GPS if you have one.

    I went south in October and didnt get too far before work forced my return. I made it to Tampico, Mexico. Had a great time in the process.
