Not much to report about the day's ride, which covered 400 miles from Alton to Woodstock (who knew Illinois was such a big state?), except that it was long, wet, and very cold. Much of the mileage was on dull Interstate because recent flooding left long stretches of our planned route along the Great River Road underwater. Even the outlying areas we passed through showed evidence of bad flooding, with sunken fields and a few inundated homes. With temps hovering in the high 40s, I had plenty of time to wonder why the Street Glide, with throttle-by-wire, electronic cruise control, EFI, ABS, Harmon-Kardon audio, and so much other modern technology, doesn't also include heated grips and seats. At least not stock.
