Hot dang that's a bit too early for my blood. I'll see though. I can probably get breakfast, and then still have time to go with Kim to church. The ride would probably wake me up a bit.

Oh wait..scratch that. I should be game. I got the Gilberts event, so either way I'll be driving/riding past Whistle Stop Sunday morning. w0rd, yeah I'm in.

I think you are referring to the full moon meet.
Us southsiders had different arrangements.

It may rain Sunday anyway, but if it doesn't and anyone wants to meet there (Whistlestop) and ride for 1/2 to 1 hour or more, that will work for me.

I would prefer MUCH later in the morning.

I can do Sunday, but seriously do need an early start. Sundays are work days when you sell real estate.

7:30 work? What are going to be riding? dirt/mud or just stupid roads?

I'm up for 730 at whistle stop. I'll probably be there with my car\trailer though for the trials event, but dang they got good breakfast, so... count me in

I can make 7:30 if it's not raining.

I'm presently working on my IT400 (Fox Lake), and the XT225 is in Chicago...so I'd be on a FZ1.

There are some slightly traveled roads around Volo Bog that might be fun; I wouldn't be going off road though (obviously) with the FZ1.

Actually, I've driven it for miles on Daytona Beach, so maybe sand is close enough to dirt for 450 lbs - 150HP on street tires. (10 MPH radared speed limit)

It is not cheap if you stay right in the city near the down town area. Adams Mark, Radisson, Marriott come to mind. They are located near busch stadium. YOu should take in a Ball game if possible. Lacledes Landing. (not sure of the spelling) is a short walk from there. Last couple of times down I stayed in Illinois and there is a train that takes you right into the city. It s a fun town with freindly people.

Tomorrow morning (4-26) I should be at the Whistle Stop at 7am. I want to allow a little extra time for getting out to Gilberts for the Trials event. Anyone else in? I'll probably be riding since my car will be trailered up and I have no real place to put it by my house.

thanks. price isn't really an issue. Will be splitting room 4 ways, and besides, I don't get many vacations. Want to be able to park at the end of the day and walk to the boozer.

The weather is IFFY, but I'll be at the Whistlestop between 7 and 7:30am.

If it's raining or positively will be, I'll drive my car instead of the FZ1 (but I'll put a helmet on my table).
