Moonshine Lunch Run

The Moonshine Lunch Run near Casey, Illinois (east-central) is coming up on April 14. If we don't have a late winter and we have good weather, is there any interest in making this a "meet and great"? This is a 3 day event, but the main event that most attend is the ride out from Casey to Moonshine on Saturday, April 14 for a Moonburger at the country general store. Moonshine is just a country crossroad with a general store on the corner and a population of 2. Last year they had 1600 bikes there and served 2068 burgers by early afternoon when the store closes (keeps growing every year).

I'm guessing the local motels are booked up already, so if anyone wanted to spend a night you would probably need to book in a motel at one of the larger towns some miles from Casey. I've rode to Moonshine and returned home the same day to Indy, so spending the night isn't necessary if you live close enough.

Just throwing this out there. I don't know if I can make it yet, but I wanted to see if there is any interest.

That is only 100 miles from my place, I have never been, I would likely be interested in rounding up a crew and heading down for the day. Looks liek a good time.

No better way to see the world than outta the cage and in the wind.

Sound like a good trip to me. If the weather is nice and I can get a few friends to tag along.

Be careful, STUPID doesn’t care what direction it comes at you from!!!

I think this place was mentioned in the HOG maganzine. Sounds like a nice ride.

It's mostly Hondas and Yamahas, but there are several Harleys as well. Long distant riders from all over the country come to this thing. Just another destination for them.

Just so you know, they send the bikes out to Moonshine on Saturday from Casey in groups and not all at once. Or people can just ride out there on their own. Once you are there you hang out, socialize, and stand in line for a burger.

If you can't make it on that date, it is a good destination on another Saturday. Here's video about Moonshine.
