    Good report! You should put one in the ride report section for more to see. It kind of goes with canonshot's Bashing Big Bikes report.

    Thanks! I started reading that BBB report and I sure do love seeing all the pics. I dropped my MC for its 12,000 mile maintenance yesterday... And I'm going through separation anxiety, lol.

    Illinois, you put me in a shitty State
    Is an awesome place for dual sporting and other hobbies. Been over it on my bicycle and the Husky. Seemed much less painful on the Husky...:deal

    They have some really nice camping spots on both sides of the pass. Can't wait to go back next year.

    Thanks for the invite Mark, not sure what I got planned this weekend. Might go to IN and ride the 530. Might ride with Paul on big bikes on Sunday.

    Might be home nursing the wife. She is pretty sick today.

    I know VFR owes us a ride report from AK.

    I have a gps route that Steve Flinn put together, that goes from Shelbyville to near the PMC! A zig zag fun ride to the races.

    I may trade the 2007 adventure990 for a new Baja.

    Hey Paul!

    Hi,
    I guess I should introduce myself to you all. I'm a local Central Il, boy. Forsyth to be exact. I'm riding a '12 GSA right now, loving every minute.
    I've been around motorcycles for my entire life, grew up in a motorcycle shop (Lund's in Decatur) My dad was a motorcycle mechanic and we spent every weekend at races all over the place. Motorcycles have been the constant in my life. I've been riding since the mid sixties, I'm thinking I was 5 or 6 riding a Bultaco Lobito.
    Anyway, Howdy!

    Lucky! Well from what little experience I've had riding in Colorado... Pretty much anywhere you go is spectacular there. We did follow the CAM 1000 out of Colorado Springs.. And that was a great way to jump in! Which way are you headed?

    I've got a cabin rented in Gunnison for four days the rest of the time I'll just wing it. Thinking of make a big loop around the state or wherever the road takes me.
