I've gone to their Sunday thing on and off for 25 years.
It is as David said. They like to do a 20-45 minute highway ride then eat.
BUT I have found it a good place to meet up with others, loud pipes and not so loud, to go ride with.
I have with spin-off groups from there for some of the best day trips I recall. Once a group of about 20 HDs (when I road a 920Virago) to lunch somewhere just west of rockford. (my yamaha was the only one that needed repair that day, well ok my pride)
Then once with a huge group made up of plenty of blue knights. We went down to the other side of Joliet with only stopping for about 3 or 4 intersections.
There is also another goldwing group (american goldwing association) that meets at county farm and army trail macdonalds (leaves at 9). I'm told its more of a cruise but I don't know never been there.
now for a big maybe
If your looking for a Sunday ride we should put together something from the area.
At a more civil time like 9 or 10 try to map out a ride to be back around 2. Maybe gather over by McDs on Higgins (Barrington Square) Then we face no membership picthes.
