    Hey, I'll be there with the 950 and of course my trailer. Anyone want to meet in the area and ride some hilly roads etc.
    Fireman and Lip are supposed to cruise over, any one else?

    Sounds good. I'd say 90% chance of making it as of now. Where and when do you plan to meet up?

    If you take route 20 east of Galena about 5 miles you will see the Eagle Ridge Territories. Turn there and right near the entrance is a restaurant/cofee shop. How does 10:30 sound?

    Will be roads for the day. I don't know much off road stuff out there yet!

    We could ride the old stagecoach trail (a nice hilly farm road) ansd what ever we find between now and then!
