I was just thinking that those of us from the westernburbs could met someplace saturday morning for the ride up to Doyles. To my knowledge myself ,loopyg, thelittlewoman will be heading out from the Aurora area. If im correct I have heard it is on 12 so I culd take I-355 to 53 and take 12 and I should run into the parking lot. It looks like a nice ride from here so the more the merrier. :lol:

Head straight up Hwy 31 to Richmond. 3/4 of the way thru town you'll find Doyle's on your left (heading north).

If you get to Hwy 173 on 31 you've missed it by a couple of blocks.

If you get to Wisconsin you're only 2 blocks too far north... :shock: :p


(OK, that's the Chicago-Spike directions - "2 blocks south of Wisconsin", you're really a couple miles too far north.)

David's right that 31 is a straight shot...

But... it's a VERY slow ride on a nice Saturday...

I would agree with your original 355/53/12 route.

Either way, I'll join you somewhere.

I'm in Glen Ellyn right by 355 and 38 (Roosevelt).

It'll be a beautiful day. Let's get as many Westernburbers as possible!

If we leave by noon, that should get us there in time.

Trying to follow 31 into Richmond will get you lost and confused. Route 31 ENDS at the intersection known to us locals as Whiskey Corners. You will know the intersection by the landscaping/nursery place on the southeast corner, the Citgo gas station on the northeast corner and the mini-mart on the northwest corner. Other than the fact that you will now be on US Route 12 rather than IL Route 31 just follow David's directions.

Well, I'll see you all there.

Maybe we can ride back together!

Slim:

What kind of pipes do you have? Gotta get those!

They just sound awesome - and they'd sound even better on a 1300 single pin crank....
