I love this thread and I've had it saved to my favorites for over a year. I finally may have some time next spring/summer to take a week and make the trip. Any chance you could get me the GPS coordinates for the ride, or maybe a more specific map route?

In my youth, I rode scooters (Vespa, Cushman) and Whizzers all over the gravel roads of central IL and loved it. Now, in my old age, I am riding gravel again whenever the opportunity presents itself but on a bigger scoot. Being rather hilly, curvaceous and prone to frost heaves and washouts, some of the gravel roads around here will slow you down a bit though.

Yeah, The scoots do pretty well on the gravel. Suspension is lacking of course but handling is good. Wish I could get a set of Tourances for the SYM.
