Holiday Shores

I rode over last summer to the Shores where I hadn't been for 30 years, my the trees have grown. Our house was on a cove off of the dam, (Woodland Dr.?), second tier, not lakefront. When we used to have actual winters, I can remember the road to Edwardsville actually drifting shut. The Shores was it's own world, quite cool if you had a boat and lakefront property and actually lived on the lake. I actually remember seeing ice skaters on the main lake on many occasions.

Here's another HS story. As a kid I went out to my grandpa's lake lot near the gas dock/convenience store every summer. Great fishing and I loved the July fourth events(ski show,fireworks). Around 2000 I had a Yamaha Radian and went for a lookaround ride. The clubhouse had Burned Down. And they were in the process of rebuilding. I took some pictures and if anyone is interested can try to post them.
That development adds new addresses as homes are built or so they say. Any truth to that?Would be very confusing for pizza guy.

Recommendations for shop to hone cylinder?

My DR650 needs a set of rings. Does anyone have a shop they would recommend for honing a thumper cylinder?

100 Acre Woods Rally/Rally Cars

http://www.100aw.org/
Just thought I would give everybody a heads up about this rally. Some of the stages are on roads many of you have probably ridden on, and I will soon! It is a blast?

River levy tracks?

Anyone got the GPS tracks along the river on the Illinois side of the Mississippi from Hannibal south to near where Carbondale Illinois is? Partial tracks are fine as well. Looking to do a big loop back up North to Champaign. Prefer dirt and gravel wherever possible.

PM me please. Thanks, Brian
