A few of us battled the spectacular weather we had in the midwest Sunday. We had temps in the mid 70s, light winds, crystal clear blue skys, and low humidity. We took all back roads that added up to about 200 miles roundtrip. We had a nice stretch along the Rock River, however my out of date GPS had no way of knowing a road closed on the way back, so we just started heading eastward on whatever road. Well, we got deep into farm country and the roads kept on getting smaller. At one point, we rode about 4 miles on gravel roads. Kept the speed around 40 mph, until we got back on to pavement. Here's a picture of Ronald Reagan's boyhood home in Dixon, Illinois. His family moved here in 1920 when he was 9.

Was a great weekend in Northern Illinois that's for sure. Bob and I went out for a ride to Savannah and up to Dubuque IA and back down on the Great River Road. My first time riding along the river. We rode approx. 400 miles that day.

My sister-in-law is from Dixon, I have seen Ronald Reagan's home but not is such great condition. I saw it many years ago. We do go through Dixon quite often.

Hi Cathy,

Have you checked out Northwest Suburban Scooter Club? We have just finished the summer schedule of rides, and we will be scheduling some rides for the fall. Feel free to check in from time to time at http://www.northwestsuburbanscooterclub.com/forums/
to see what rides are scheduled. We'd love to have you and Bob join in on some of our rides. I'm sure we will be checking out some fall colors in Cheeseland in about 6-8 weeks.
