For those of you who are not going to Gingerman, we are doing another day run. Leaving in Elgin, going through Oregon, Freeport, Galena, Dubuque, 56 along the river to Sterling and home down 88. We will be meeting at the McDonalds at Randall and Rt. 20 in Elgin. We will meet at 7:45-8:00am on Sunday.

The rules: sorry after all of the fallen riders, this is a must.

For those of you who have not ridden with us (Tim and I) We ride fast but we are courteous to our other riders, and other vehicles. I am not so bad, but there will be people with me that do not care to much for wreckless riders, and will be more than vocal about it. I have always had a great time with everyone that I have met here, so I don't mean to sound like an old man. There are a ton of safe places for wheelies, high speed runs, and carving, and we all love to watch/do them at the right times. oh and WE DON"T SHARE LANES especially at 100+.

I hope we can get a great turn out, and an even better after the ride report.:B

Does this mean I can't grab your ass on the way by? What fun is this? LOL. Count me in, dude. I just got my new track day tires so I will put the old ones on and finish them off that weekend. I love the roads over that way.

Oh man, I'm already headin out there for a photo gallery premiere on Saturday the 28th. (Anna ;) ) and will be staying overnight at Eagle Ridge comin home on Sunday afternoon. If I didn't have to bring one of the prints my wife and I own along I would be riding out there as well. Hmmmm maybe I can see if I can find a trailer to use, already have the hitch.

Did I miss something? :confused
Nope. I just know how much you like photography and the premier is for the Images of Nature photographer (Thomas Mengleson) I told you about a few weeks ago at the PJ Willoughbys luncheon where he was going to make the special appearance.

Update - Trailer has been secured for the weekend- Wahoo!!! So that means I'll be out there with the bike. Have a room booked at Eagle Ridge for Sat. night with two queen size beds and I'm the only one using it. If anyone else is interested in heading out on Saturday PM me as I have extra space in the room.

Sounds like a plan. I'll see ya all at the entrance to Eagle Ridge at 10:00 Sunday morning. Won't be back on the board anymore before then. Wife's b-day tonight and leavin in the morning. If you need to get a hold of me you can try my pager (630) 314-8421. (Best bet) or I'll have my cell phone on Sunday morning (630) 728-0723. See ya out there. If anybody is still lookin at comin out Saturday my room is under my last name (Bradtke). Still have room available.

I'm half tempted to come out... I think most of my friends are going to Rt. 66 for the NHRA event. Personally, I'd rather go riding... the year is almost over!

I wish you guys weren't starting so freaking EARLY though!!! Last I heard, it's supposed to rain in the early morning. Will you just push it back a few hours?

Well, see, I typically am non-functional on weekends before noon.... and I have been working 2nd and 3rd shift all week, so I haven't been going to bed until 8am. So it's gonna mess with my sleep schedule...

But I wanna go, I'm itching to ride. I'll put it in the "maybe" column :)
