    The Buckhart Tavern is a good old school spot. With you next weekend, clawdog (maybe).I may do a recon ride, but I can tell you 54 from Farmer City to Mt. Pulaski is bumpy and rough. The last time I rode to Buckhart, took a road from Decatur to Mt. Auburn to Buckhart. Been a while. There used to be another place near Mechanicsburg. I think is was called Momma Lees Sandbar? Another goodie that may take us some miles would be The Approach in Meridosia. Solo knows some good roads and trails near there. Motorheads off of Toronto RD south of Spfld. may be a spot to consider, also?

    I also did an anti-social ride on Sunday, but mine was in the Rushville area. Didn’t take any pictures. Saturday looks like the high is going to be 96 degrees. The earlier the better.

    kinda..........not to that extreme ...... I'll post pics
    The wife just made mention that every year I go on a bike trip and see some amazing terrain, and that she felt cheated. So we're heading to the back roads of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado.
    We'll see which one of us comes back alive. :D :hide

    HAHA I know right, I figure if I can't ride the bike might as well get it out of the way.

    Yeah, it's only hump day, but with the COVID 19 spreading to bars and foodie places , I think that I MAY do a local ride. Solo doing an anti-motosocial ride (good on you brother), seems like the way to go. Call me a puss, but .............................................................. We are only "old riders" once. Hope to ride with you all again one day.

    With no solid plans and temperatures in the upper 90’s, I’ll plan on staying home this weekend. Hopefully something will materialize in the coming weeks.
