    We are also planning a ride in a couple weeks to Illinois for the Moonshine Run. Check this out, I think you will find this interesting:
    2008 - 4th Annual Moonshine Lunch Run - Home

    We won't get there until Saturday morning, but we plan to make the run out to Moonshine and get the Moonburgers. Also plan to stay the night for the Saturday dinner and breakfast Sunday morning.

    Have you been to the event I linked above? It sounds like a lot of bikers from many states make the trip. Take the time to go through the web page that I linked and you will see that it is a big event. You will see that people come from all over the country. Most of the bikes are metric, but there are also several Harleys (look under "Riders" link). Take the time to look at the "Events" like also.

    No I`ve never been to an actual organized trip there . For us it`s 60 miles and usually a spur of the moment saturday morning ride.Once in a while during the week it happens . We have been there on saturday and seen as many as 75 bikes come in together but usually in 2s and 3s.I only glanced at the website but it looks like a local guy from Casey is involved,so I`m sure its all under control. By the way That video is old the record is way more than that ........Take something to put under your jiffy stand cause it`s been rainy and the sod is a little soft. Also DO NOT GET THERE LATE WITH a BIG GROUP or you will find yourself at MICKY D`s

    We aren't going now. The weather doesn't look very good. I just canceled the motel room. I don't think it will be much fun driving in the cold rain to get there and back home. They are saying that we may even see some snow flurries!:bigsmiley29:

    I'll wait and get my Moonburger another day.

    The next organized run to Moonshine will be part of the Illinois HOG Rally in Effingham, Illinois. The Rally is the weekend of June 6-7. On the 7th at 9:00am they will have a run to Moonshine.

    Do you know if you have to be a member of HOG to attend one of these rallies?
