Shades State Park..

Well. the day started off with trees flying down the road!  On our way to breakfast, Saturday morning, I look in my mirror see a pickup truck, followed by a bunch of trees, passing the seven of us as we rode to Elwood for breakfast.  Apparently, a tree trimmer was in a hurry and passed us all --he must have been going eighty miles per hour before he got around us.  The bed of the truck was overflowing with tree branches flailing in the wind!  I mean, we were going the speed limit.  I wish I had taken a picture!

Anyway, seven of us ate breakfast at Richards restaurant in Elwood.  Riding today-Larry Burke on his "new to him" 1993 Honda Helix scooter, "Bumble Bee":

Yeah, scooters rule!

Merle Combs, Larry Miller, John Nave, Art Adrainson, Billy Niverson, and myself, Larry Davis.

After breakfast Larry Miller had to go home to do chores so the six of us rode down to Cicero and over to Crawfordsville, where we stopped for coffee.  We took US 231 south out of Crawfordsville down to IN 234 (a great motorcycle road) and west on IN 234 through Shades State Park:

We then road north on US 41 to Attica where we had lunch at McDonald (of course!).  Merle had to leave us at Attica for a quick ride home.

After lunch, the five of us continued north on US 41 to the windmills south of Fowler, Indiana:

We turned east at Fowler and rode back home.

I got home about 4:30 so I rode about nine hours with several stops-287 miles total.
