Bike started up and ran perfect even after sitting seven months. Basically ready to roll! Just need to clean her up and air up the tires and should be good to go.

Absolutely. Could fix you up with some outstanding free camping right here along the Spoon River. My brother is the village maintenance man and I could get him to open up the public restroom and shower house at the River Side Park...which has a nice area to camp.

That sounds great! I'll let you know as it gets closer. I've got a Colorado backcountry trip planned in July that I may say that will use up my 'quota' of tent time.......LOL

Think that mine is close to ready. Still need to rig a holder for an extra can of fuel.

Does Illinois require a tail light? I already have a headlight.

I have never ran either. You only need a headlight and tail light if you are running at night pretty sure.

No need to rig up anything to carry extra fuel. My wife will be following along as a support truck and plenty of room for you fuel in the truck bed.
