Nice trip up to Southern Illinois.You will go through Amish communities and even pass by a great store run by the Amish. Excellent quality hand made furniture for sale there too. You will cross the Ohio River on a Ferry into Cave-In-Rock Illinois.This route also passes through the Garden of the God's area. Lots of scenery and hiking there.In OLD Shawneetown, you will be able to visit World Famous Hog Daddy's Saloon. VERY interesting items hanging it that place.....In Sturgis Ky, there is a nice bike shop there called Custom Biker Wear. Very friendly people and lots of biker clothes, chrome, parts, decals, patches, etc.

5 star except for the Custom Biker Wear Shop, I will admit they were extremely friendly till.....What made my visit to Custom Biker Wear unique and special is in the 48 years I have been a consumer I have never experienced the level of direspect that I recieved from them today. I was returning a pair of gloves that split from dry rot when my boyfriend tried on his gift. They not only refused to even look at my receipt, they stated that they had never carried that line and that I had purchased them at Rural King. The only logical reason I came to was that after all the years they have spent on the road selling to people they will never see again has lead them to treat locals in the same manner. I have visited their website to review their online return policy and there is none. The link goes to a page that is EMPTY...just like their actual brick and mortar store policy (Call the customer a liar and trust that they are illiterate). Bikers BEWARE ! ! !
