    Has anyone here rode the Hennepin Canal? I'm thinking of doing it if this winter ever ends.

    Haven't ridden past Utica/starved rock but from chanahon to starved rock along the river is a pretty good ride for Illinois. Really twisty (for Illinois ) and wooded.

    I rode the Cannon track on my Super Tenere last summer. It's fun, some covered bridges and 2 track gravel in there too. Nothing too special but for Illinois it's OK.

    It's probably not legal for bikes but they do let snowmobiles and horses on there so I'm thinking if it's early still a little chilly maybe there won't be any traffic and I can get away with it.

    Agreed - I did it on my Caponord and saw some neat sights (for Illinois anyway). I may have strayed from the route here and there. Hope nobody minds me sharing a few pics from the ride....

    Neat! I grew up in Winfield by county farm and Geneva, my folks still live over there and I'm around there fairly often. Wave if you see a te610!

    I never knew this thread existed...

    I'm in the city, in Humboldt Park, with a KTM 640Adv. I'm always looking for partners for day rides out of the city, and/or some urban exploration.
