    If I'm not there, the tires will be. Sure wish I could join you, but I gotta head on down to St. Louie to close some business.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they came from the dealer, but don't know for sure. Maybe I should ask him if he's missing anything...

    Hey skinner how about designating a lunch stop in Galena just in case the group gets to cumbersome. Ever since Kindergarten I have been labeled as
    " does not play well with others "
    over four begins to get hard to watch out for. Maybe I need some ridlin or something :evil

    see you all in Savanna

    Cauldron, you are welcome to follow or ride along, but be warned, I drive at excesive speeds and will most likely enjoy a couple of adult beverages on the way home. dont want you top be uncomfortable. we are leaving from the Bicycle Shop in Pekin.
    if you want to go with us, you are more than welcome, but be warned we may not be a good example :evil otherwise, see you in Savanna.

    Sorry, but I cant drive 65

    \cheers

    Is this a No Whine ride?

    I have printed laminated maps of the route with a designated stop for lunch in galena, we might decide to alter it though and eat at the ski hill (chestnut mt.) but we can discuss that in the morning.

    Hey, what good is a speed reading course if you can't keep the info straight.:D

    I went back and read slower and realized that "via Manito" does not mean that he lives there. oops. so there you are. [​IMG]
    I remember reading somewhere that SOMEONE lived in Manito, then jumped to conclusions. So anyway... yeah, the bike shop is about two blocks from my house.

    I can't ride 65 either.... I'm on a 250!!:rofl :rofl I'll see you at the bike shop at 6am. I'll try to keep up, but I have directions if I am going too slow for you.
