I will more than gladly help set this cruise up if people are serious about it.

Just give me until after Wookies in the Woods since that is taking up quite a bit of my time amongst other things.

I've tossed this idea around quite a bit, give me a heads-up and we'll work out the details

I'll do some hunting through my e-mail, I had a good map/route for the area and post it up. It will be a starting point. We can also consider food options: local area/forest picnic(pot luck).

Alright surprised I still had this e-mail :laugh:

Well I got this route from Pawel, he's been there a few times and done a couple photoshoots with motorcycles down here as well. Not much for twisties but the best we can get within a reasonable drive. The route starts at an exit off of I-55 and then goes west into the park.

Starved Rock Route

We can look into food options as well. Be it a picnic that everyone brings something or we go into the local town.

If you are looking for an awesome road...
Stage coach or blackjack out of Galena. Closest thing to a dragon here, I have to say it's the best road I've been on in this area. I haven't been to the Dragon but something tells me I am not missing much from all the stories

I've always wanted to plan a trip to Galena for those roads, but it's an all day ordeal to take advantage of the roads out there.

You'll have to show me which roads exactly. I'm not to familiar with this area. Tried getting here last year but ran out of time.

I'll be in as well. Would be a really good all day event/cruise be it out to Starved Rock or Galena.

Well it seems that I will be going to Starved Rock in a few weeks for a last minute wedding invitation.

This will give me the chance to scope things out and a better opportunity to really start making plans.

First thing we should consider is picking dates, figure have at least two in mind just in case. Not sure which works better for people, Saturday or Sundays.

Post up which day of the week is better and then I will post up a handful of dates to choose from.
