bigborefan and his friend Paul are in your area. They are not friends of mine! But with a little practice, they might be able to ride some.

That cuts me deep Critic. I thought we bonded under that overpass that day....

I live in Mahomet. I have a KTM 690E. My buddy Paul is in Urbana, he has a 990ADV.

I know another guy on here, JeepBoy, he has 950SE and lives close by as well. He did have a 950ADV-S as well, but a fire melted it not to long a go. It was a sad site to see that thing melted. It brought a tear to my eye.

CATGS has a nice 640A and some decent BMWs. You want to sell that 640 CATGS? I need one bad. Let me borrow it for the weekend...

It looks like there are quite a few of use here.

Just put 800 miles on her this weekend. Rode her to the Falling Leaf Rally. Did some great gravel and creek crossings. Some technical sections, but I kept her on two wheels. We must get together for a ride.

Just moved to Mahomet...

Won't have the bike here until the end of the month when our stuff gets moved. Typically putt around the country roads. Typically do day rides once a month or so.

Guys,
keep me in your loop. My mother-in-law lives In Monticello. I get up that way often with my klr 650. I have found some dirt and gravel up there, nothing substantial, but fun.

Thumb Looking to ride.

I live in Hillsboro 62049 and looking for good rides. I don't ride much due to work and family but would be open to ideas.
