    06 GSXR 1000 setup as a standard. My everyday ride
    04 KTM 625 SXC the go anywhere ride.

    Unfortunately I have more bikes than time right now but thats not always the case so I enjoy the riding I get whenever I get it.

    Give me a street bike and twisties, a dirt bike and dirt, no deadlines, and I'm as happy as can be.:D

    Sunday morning rides in Illinois Wisconsinare my weekly routine, longer trips, trial riding, and adventures when possible

    allright, now that we know everyone's zipcode, let's meet in 61546 and go burn up some gravel for a day. I know the way you name the day. How about a full day of fast gravel and twisty blacktop, 3.00 burgers and Illinois river bottoms.

    The KLX650 is for around town/very local stuff. Not sure why I haven't been arrested yet. What, you mean I can't ride my bike up and down the stairs in front of Krannert Center?

    The KTM990 is the traveling bike, east to Indiana for day trips.
