Sure plan on it. When there's no more snow.

Give me a shout when you get a bike, and we'll hook up for a ride.

I saw it for sale and I was tempted but not ready.

Yeah I signed up on Saturday when they first opened registration.

I'll let you know when I'm mobile for sure.

I travel the exact route you will be taking.

Where in Chicago are you going? In the city or just the general area? I have a few you can try on, they feel a little different after they have been broken in (just a little bit looser).
I'll be staying in the city, but I'm driving and have a flexible schedule.

I have a 22" head circumference. This puts me on the edge of Small or Medium according to most of the manufacturer's web sites...

I will definitely stop at Corse on my way down, and then ChicagoCycle and/or the other big stores while I'm there.

I'm thinking I'm an Arai or Shoei guy...

That's pretty good! But my boat is only a 14 footer with a 7.5 hp motor.

Add me to the Yooper list!

I know Askel and we'll see if he can identify me. I have been riding the UP since I first learned to ride a bike and I am now getting into more offroad riding. I just bought a 2001 KTM 400MXC and will be making it into a nice little trail bike. I also ride a 05 Hammer and do at least 1 long ride a year on it. I don't get paid vacation so trips are usually short and only on weekends.

I currently live 200ft from the Bill Nichols Route which is MI ORV trail 16. I plan to get out more on my bike this year as gas prices will keep the Jeep sitting in the driveway most of the summer.

The title is "Escanaba in da Moonlight" and, no.
