Ride - To the IL side (Hardin) Friday 5/17/2019

Recommended Posts

I should have some modifications done by then and I will have the day to ride. If anyone is off and wants to ride, post up and we'll figure out to where and when...etc.

I talked to Dominic (used to ride here) and he would like to stay on the IL side, so here's the plan:

Meet time: 9:00am

Meet Spot: Edwardsville BP (3 Glenwest Drive, Edwardsville, IL)

KSU: shortly after 9am

Destination: Hardin IL

Pace: Relaxed

If anyone else is riding from MO, I can meet up with you on this side and ride together to IL.

No, that's one step too far for me right now :) I still need those

I will have the engine guards and sliders on and hopefully the tail off with the new LED lights. 

I'm still in break in mode so it will be an easier pace.

I'm headed to AR to attend an MSTA rally that day.  Hoping for good weather all weekend.

Have fun. I hope AR is dry on Sunday because it's not looking like that around here on Sunday.

Are you up for an IL side ride? I am talking to a friend who is on that side and doesn't want to try crossing the river in the morning.

Still may be flooded. Better check before you head out. Google maps shows lots of roads still closed.

Thanks Stuart. Yes, that's the plan. We'll be riding route 3 until before Pere Marquette, then ride through the park then some twisties and back down to route 3 and Hardin

Call me if you get lost, you will have to take the back way into Pere Marquette park.

Thank you. Surprisingly, Google is taking the flooding into account.

I'm kind of in a bind because I can't put the Garmin on the new bike (no mount) but I did create a route going route three to powerline road into the park and out going north on what looks like a twisty section... We'll see. Dominic is fine with getting lost so am I 😉
