Lockport, Illinois

The weather was awesome, it got better the closer we got to the lake and let me tell you that was one huge lake.
The ride itself was nice as we found some decent roads once we got off the interstate.
Lunch was good the beach was packed and there was a long line for ice cream, maybe next time.
We had an uneventful ride home which is always good, light traffic.        Thanks to everyone who rode, I had a fun day.

Star Chapter 104  led 13 bikes up to Milwaukee for a tour of the Miller/Coors Brewery and a riders choice of either the HD museum or the 16th Annual Kite Flight in Kenosha.

Over all it was just another fun day with 104 goofing off as usual.    Our ride captain would like to thank everyone who came out, it is the ride participation that keeps us rolling.

June 9th, Star 104 headed out to North Carolina.

We had 4 motorcycles and 1 passenger for the ride. Denis, Sue, Bob, Stewart, & myself. Had a wonderful ride through the cornfields of western Illinois to Mendota for the festival. There were lots of crafts and food vendors at the event. We opted to have lunch at a pretty good Mexican restaurant in Mendota food was good.  We headed back home at got some rain....no big deal....the ride was over.
Thanks for those how attended.    Jim

June 24th - Great day to ride and 8 of us took advantage going out to the Bison Corral. Yes, we got lucky and saw bison as they were right along the road but I think we all had more fun in Rochelle at lunch. We stopped at the Flight Hanger restaurant at the Rochelle airport which now houses Chicagoland Skydive.  We hung around for an hour or so after lunch to watch them jump which was  interesting and fun. Thanks to those who came out!

Great day for a ride after our monthly meeting on the 15th. Even better when we can do two rides in one day. One ride to Pyscho Silo in LaSalle - the other to Peoria. We had a great meeting with 5 new riders as guests and some were able to join us on our rides.
The Silo was packed! We discovered there was some sort of a photo shoot going on. Cars, bikes and models.
Had a few tasty beverages, some eats, a couple cigars, and plenty of sun. We had some fun with some folks we met and got some pictures. Boondocks in Senneca was popping a lot of bikes also with some great music by Righteous Hillbilly. 

Great times with 104!!!
