2011 Reese’s Birthday Run – Day 1

I hit the road a little after 9:00 this morning, heading north towards Peoria for Reese’s birthday.  On the way up I was determined to get some more ICR points, all in Oklahoma on this leg.  I stopped at the Lake Murray Lodge first, then up to Oklahoma City to see the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial.  After that I rode a little of the old Route 66 and got a picture at Doc’s.  From there it was a blast north and east, with a detour down to Muskogee to see USS Batfish (yes, there is a WW2 submarine in Muskogee).  Finally, I stopped at the Route 66 Vintage Iron Motorcycle Museum and spent some time looking at the vintage bikes and memorabilia.  After that I made my way to Springfield, MO where I stopped for the night.
