    Put saddle bags back on today and will be back on the road again tomorrow. Man I love Spring!!!!!!
    I was up in Toronto from just before hallowe'en and back in Chgo mid-Dec. man is this Spring WEL-come!! Took a little ride a couple days ago, and off on another little spin today. Can't wait to get down to Seymour's and put on new shox and do the seasonal tune-up. I'm so stupid-giddy-happy about riding again I just had to reply.

    It has been quite a winter up in Toronto so this must feel almost like summer now!

    Looking forward to riding this morning but found I was running late. Hopped on the bike and started down the road. Made a steep left turn from a stop and "something" happened and the bike fell on the left side. There was not stopping it!!! I was pretty mad at myself because I was thinking about being late and not the ride itself. I guess it was a lesson learned early this summer and no major damage to me or the bike.

    Just a reminder for everyone to take it slow, go over your bike before you ride and THINK about what your doing and what is going on around you.

    Be safe!

    There are three things that I look for when I am looking at motorcycle tours: Friends, Support, and Expertise. Isnt that why we pay for tours but that is not what tour operators advertise  they advertise the experience first and all else second. See Copper Canyon  yada yada  and the friendly and experienced guides yada yada"

    So  I was thinking that I am satisfying what I want out of travel as an indirect result of paying the premium of an organized tour. I suspect others do the same. All we want is to go out and ride off the beaten path swap stories  have a few drinks  and have someone call 911 if we break a leg

    LetÔÇÖs form a group for the express purpose of getting out there and supporting each other on a motorcycle without paying that premium. Here is my proposal:
    ÔÇó LetÔÇÖs get together for an extended trip once year ÔÇô about 5 days or so
    ÔÇó Optionally, overseas trip proposal - once every year ÔÇô go/no-go depending on interest, e.g. ring tour of Iceland for two weeks
    ÔÇó Plus, twice a year ÔÇô long weekend trips somewhere agreeable to most

    ThatÔÇÖs it. We all are busy people and itÔÇÖs tough to find time to ride but if we agree to just a few ground rules ÔÇô weÔÇÖll be on our way:
    ÔÇó We pay our own way
    ÔÇó Simple majority wins
    ÔÇó We try to make the trips
    ÔÇó We take care of each other on the road

    We all have a common purpose that will satisfy our individual goals. In this way, weÔÇÖll be getting exactly what we want out of trip: Travel is better with friends; there is someone to help or call for help when things go wrong. What we are missing is the local and practical expertise that an experienced tour operator can provide but with all things being equal, I would prefer to learn with friends rather than from a tour company.

    I'll sponsor the website and serve as an administrator. All are welcome regardless of location or bike.

    ~ curt
    Where in the burbs are you I am in n.w. Indiana always looking for some one who wants to ride. Have a 1984 r100rt,and 2005 k1200s.so can ride with various styles of riders

    I got to ride last Friday and this past Saturday. Even did some gravel with a few GS's. I was able to keep them at bay!

    CRBMWOA Hot Dog Rides

    It was a brisk one tonight with a dozen or so riders showing up in Buffalo Grove. Nice seeing and speaking to Martin with a sweet K1200RS. You don't have to ride a Beemer as we had a couple of fine Milwaukee Vibrators in attendance. Thanks for posting the seasons schedule Steve O'. Come on out and join a fun group, kick some tires and do a little BS'ing.
