Bring on Spring ride; Fox Lake to Madison:
IL roads ok and WI roads great; no traffic. All my gear performed exceptionally well and the old engine held up better than might be expected.
Exciting encounter with Cerebrus:
just west of Fontana and barely escaping with my life. =O
Highlight was stopping at my grand old friends' house in Oregon for a respite and belly laughs with them over humor forged together as children.
