    You sure are crafty with the back roads :D

    I think the crew is taking a nap after such an early start. About 310 miles this mornin'.

    I am nursing a serious case of KTM950 sore-ass, sure wish I had Brad's BMW seat.

    ok, my turn...

    so who's up for riding this Sunday at either Buff Range, the Cliffs, and/or local roads around Starved Rock ??

    Small d/p bikes need only apply (well, except chain and his F650, he can handle anything) -- sorry GS's, I don't think you'd have any fun on singletrack...

    any takers ? Motojoe said he's in... BvKamp said maybe...

    well how was the route. that was kind of a wing it. I usually ride from Lacon South, but tried to work out something that would work on a short day from the City

    the roads on the East side of the river should have been fun

    Great route! We had to stop a few times (because we're stupid) but figured we'd blame you instead.

    Mike has a dirt-riding background and Taki a road-riding background, but regardless of the surface this was my view most of the day:

    Mike gets stuck in the sand. Ironically, Mike was the one who said the stream bed looked too soft to ride on. :doh

    trim the fat. thats absolutely the fattest KTM I have ever seen. Looks like a good time. sorry about the dead end. hope there werent too many. only thing worse than a closed road is a paved road. Those bike are sooooo nice and clean. you boys need to get outta the city a little more :lol3 Glad to see you found a creek bed and felt obliged to get in. did you ride it to the river? If you enjoyed any of this ride, as bv knows its a small taste of what Fulton has to offer.
