We had excellent weather as well. We went south of Mahomet, then west thru DeLand, down by Allerton Park, south of Monticello, then east back to Mahomet. I clocked 112 miles total. Some of the guys bailed earlier. I think we rode every gravel road and farmer tow-track in Piatt county. At least all the ones I know of. I call it my Piatt County - Dakar loop. Everyone seemed to have a good time and I showed them roads they had never ridden before.

Next time we may head southeast into Indiana in search of hills and more corners.

It was nice to meet everyone as well.

Looking forward to next time.

The rest of you guys need to join the next ride as well.
If we set it up at least 2 weeks out, I can ensure I don't work that Sunday.

It was great fun, but most important for me was getting to know all present and I look forward to many future rides together. I hope the rest of the advriders in the area can join us as well

Thumb Central Illinois Ride

Great Ride!! Didn't know a lot of those roads were right around me!! Need to get out of the house more often, or maybe off the pavement more often!!

It was great to meet everybody. Looking forward to the Southeast Indiana ride. Sorry had to duck out early. Think I ate something bad the night before.....really bad.

anyone want to do something again, say 16th or later? Or maybe sometime midweek, even though it's getting dark pretty early.

Hi runner!

I think it was the battery. My charger said it had 0% charge. I've never trusted those gauges on battery chargers though. Anyways, I charged the battery and it seems to turn over faster and starts!
