I can't say I'm familiar w/ the area, but there about have to be some ADV-good roads down there since it's next to the river.

There are some decent for central illinois dirt roads around in fulton and schuyler counties. Also, brushy ridge is a local atv/mc park that is between astoria and browning. Click HERE for more details.

I rode to work today and probably tomorrow. Most likely it will be just to work and back. Oh, well, two wheels beats four!

CRAP!!! Beautiful weather yesterday and today and my bike is down! It was running great Monday and then Tuesday it ran like crap. I did a little investigating and figured out that my carb boots are torn. (Common problem on the XT350s). I knew when I got Stumpy (my bike) that he needed new boots and I tried to fix them on the cheap and it ended up not working. I have one more discount (cheap) fix that I am going to try before I pull the trigger on new ones. I would hate to spend 1/4 of what I paid for the bike on carb boots but then again I got it for the price I did because it needed them.
