    Over a couple of beers last night the question came up. Is there a Trans Illinois Trail yet, north/south?

    I was helping out with that some time ago---------I plotted from Moonshine Illinois South---then West to the Mississippi but nobody ever filled in the blank going North. I forget now where that thread was or who was organizing it. It just never came together.

    Thanks Big Dog!
    Maybe next spring we can get a few riders that want to meet During moonshine( Maybe camp at the farm?) and then spend a couple of days riding Back south on Big Dogs route. It looks very cool...

    Does the bike have a title?

    Is there a VIN stamped on the bike?

    If so, you should have no problems.
    Get a brake light, horn and headlight.

    I plated a 2000 DRZE 400 w/o much trauma.

    Last year.

    There is some info on the Missouri DOR website regarding tagging dirt bikes. A Google search should turn it up.

    Man, BigDog, I wish I'd been around. And if you'd held on to that key, there's a great place to camp between that tower and Alley that's a couple miles back off 106 on Bay Creek. Another day... :wink:
