Default Re: route 66 pt. II or the happy birthday ride

headed out of town for flanagan, IL. just to see what was on the other side of I-55. I found officer friendly on the road west of Pontiac, he didn't say anything about me speeding on the mighty ST 1300

Default Re: route 66 pt. II or the happy birthday ride

Saturday was one of those day where you just don't want to get put of bed, I looked at the clock a few times and finally got up and moving about 06:00. I was all cleaned up and had the mighty ST 1300 loaded so I rode around to the front desk and dropped off the key cards, got on the road by 07:00. with bright blue skies and a temp of 68 I cut through town and made my way over to the mother road. I had the gps on more for the compass than for routing, wanted to make sure I was heading north or north east. there are several restored gas / service stations along the way but I only found one with a charging station for an EV
