    Still see him post on FB. This site changed a lot over the last few years, seems to have driven some of the old regulars away. Maybe he'll be back to reclaim the throne...

    I found these photos on the first page of this thread. Does anyone know if the bridges still exist and if so where can I find them??? I assume they are/were here in central Illinois, but the photos were posted in 2004 and a lot of these bridges have dissapeared in the last few years.

    Hi back!
    We need to get a ride in this year! After hitting deer number 3 and surgery, my shoulder is almost back to normal. :D
    11/05/13 Well, it was back to normal, but not now. I'm trying to keep up with skinner!

    I still have the KLR... it developed a magic smoke issue (electrical gremlins) that I haven't had time to chase down... Main ride is a Vstrom1000, though it has been parked for almost a year because of the birth of my daughter...

    Better to sleep on 4 wheels than two wheels when going to work :deal

    Looking for a battery and an excuse to get the thing going. I think maybe I will give up my truck for lent. That would make me use the bike :lol3
