Dixon, Illinois

It was a really nice day today. Mike and I wanted to do a short ride. He’s in the process of looking for a street bike, but until he gets his own he can ride mine, I‘ve got three of them after all.

Sharing a sandwitch for lunch by the river

We took off toward Dixon, to ride along the Rock River. Mike really wanted to ride the 954RR, so he took that bike. I took the ST3. But a while later we pulled over to switch bikes and for the reminder of the day he kept riding the ST3. The 954RR just wasn’t as comfortable and just a bit over 6’3”, he’s really too tall for all my bikes, since the ST3 has a shaved seat and the 954RR is lowered by 1”.

We took RT 2 from Rockford to Dixon

On the way back we took Lost Nation Road to Flagg Road to Lowden Road

Time to get wet
