Starved Rock Ride July 19,2009


An unusually cool mid 70's day in July. Perfect riding weather. We were invited to join Brian Lysik his wife Jane (Harley Davidson), their niece Meggan and Paul (Triumph), her sister Patty and her husband Kevin (Harley Davidson) with some friends of his on scenic trip (Rt 6) to Starved Rock State Park. 8 bikes total. Left New Lenox, Il about 9:30ish. Stopped for lunch in Seneca bout 11:30, then on to the park. Nice ride in along river and in park. Some took a short hike while we were there. Kim and I and Kevin's friends jumped on I-80 home. We needed to get home to get some riding time for Kim on her new bike. The rest went on to Matthiessen State Park. Short jaunt down 178. Had a great ride and a great day! Thanks Brian for the invite!
