Well arrived at teh meeting place 15-20 min AFTER they left. Damn Chicago traffic. First time I seen most cars DOING the speed limit.:laughing Headed down Rt 6 to Ottowa. NEar Seneca I had to ride on 9 miles of grooved road surfaces. :mad Got into Ottowa and checked the Jimmy Johns to see if they were there, then to the AMaco to check before heading out to the park. Got to the park and there they were.:D Met Deuce finally.:D:D Went down I80 with them to whatever town that was and what was left of our group stopped at Pizza Hut. I think the highlight was seeing Deuce riding 'bitch' on Rachaels bike.:jester


Ride back to WI. Fine until I got up to 64 on 47. Temp started to DROP. Got to Rockford and bought a magazine to use as insulation.:D:D Rolled in about 9:45PM

Yeah, I can't believe how much the temp dropped. I took 47 as well, actually saw someone land doing one of the Skydive Chicago jumps.

I took 34 and when I was going through Naperville, well, all I can say is that I should have listened to Deuce when I was finishing up that first Pepsi at Pizza Hut - especially painful whenever I hit a bump in the road!

trust me you don't wanna know. :(
I feared my wife was going to find out on the board so I told her when I got home. She agreed there wasn't anything we could do cause the owner wasn't willing to do much but let the poor thing lay in ditch. You know I don't use this smiley on a regular basis but this dog owner deserves a big.:twofinger :mad :twofinger :mad :twofinger :mad
