    I've ridden that Old Peoria road from Bloomington to just past Danvers. It's not your average central Illinois route. I suspect it will take a little longer than just riding on 150.

    Caseys famous for pizza. A slice of the breakfast pizza may sustain you for the ride to the Busy Corner ?

    That appears to take us to Goodfield, I thought we were going to Pekin?

    Lol, I understand your confusion, but the pie thing was referring to the Goodfield location.

    I just got back from a pre-race party like event at the Country Saloon. She is a main supporter of the TT. Yes it is confusing; there are two Bust Corners! Pie movers us to Goodfield, which is a better location for this event.

    Flatland, no more than 15 minutes, just more fun! It's up to you to pick the route. \

    Dirtfarmermerrich, welcome good to have you.

    Hoping rain stays to an over night schedule.

    Oh, I like that road. I just meant that it isn't straight & flat, so we probably won't be going at the same speeds as on 150.

    Which way did he go?

    Yep, Goodfield, if everyone is good with that! Remember Jp5's advisory.

    Rain may play a part in this...

    Last year was my first time to the TT. This year I’m taking a lawn chair.

    At this time it is showering with the bulk of weather passing under Peoria; which means across you guys country. Waiting on wether races today or not with possible rain day tomorrow; which has rain forecasted.

    Update at 8:49, looks like a rain out for us! ??? I should have passed on phone #.

    SORRY!

    Clearing coming, it looks more like I got the worse part of rain, well maybe. Looking at Radar

    It was great to see everyone at breakfast. Of course, the weather was awesome. Gary tested my reaction time and riding skills again today with a surprise change to a mud and gravel road (in the pissing rain). I think he just wants to see that Victory on its side.

    Hey Critic - thanks for everything! :happay




    This one's for you Gary - several miles of my chosen return route:

    But it sure was scenic.
