IL Riders - Burbs

My neighbor & I rode out to Starved Rock from Joliet today. We took the scenic route going there and took some back roads off of 55, through Morris, and a few other towns. Extremely nice roads, varying speeds, and a couple nice curves. We hit I-80 on the way back and had fun w/ a Camaro and a WRX. I surprised to not see many sport bikes out on the roads again - cruisers galore. By the way, the parking at Starved Rock is very biker friendly if you've never been.

We plan on doing it again when the weather is nice again. I'll be sure to let you know if you want to check it out.

It was, but so far next Sat. is a high of 55 (sunny) and Sun. is 65 w/ spotty afternoon showers. More than likely it will change and hopefully for the better.

Starved rock is a nice ride, there some pretty good roads out there around Ottawa/Marseilles area.. I'm up in the Elgin area, us Illinois riders need to share the good roads we find around here they are few and far between!!

Been down there quite a few times myself.
