NOTICE

For those of you that are traveling to Galena on US 20 from the East, There is a little burb ( Elizabeth ) about 13 Miles short of Galena that is a speed trap town. as you are coming into town, It goes from 55 to 40 to 30 in a very short distance. After that you will go around a declining sweeping right hand curve that is posted 25mph. The cops like to sit about 3/4 the way through the curve. I have seen a few cars pulled over on the West side of town, But I have not seen where there sit.

That reminds me of Boss Hogg from the Dukes of Hazard, with the remote control speed limit sign that changes 85 to 35 with the push of a button!

Any excuse for a ride!

the bike is staying home for me, driving the little Pontiac Vibe because my shoulder just is not ready for long trips.
