Post street sumo ride 8/11

Good times guys here are some pics some of us took when we stopped. Alot of single track and off road stuff. Possible the most off road riding I have ever done and that includes riding a dirtbike. Had a blast. I think we had a total of 9 people on the ride.

Do you guys end up doing any high speed stuff? I'd like to make one of these, but my 125 is a bit lacking in the top end department.

Not so much high speed. There is a kid who has a Honda 230 that roade with us. You might be struggling on the 5 mile expressway portion though. lol


Also if anyone is interested there is a FB group for the Chicagoland area guys. We have about 40 members there

We rolled the turds down to Bourbanines (sp) yesterday and saw a bunch of tards head into a Forest Preserve off 83 and WAY THE FuCK DOWN

We missed you buy like 5 seconds - We turned off 83 and onto some fucking road (Troy knows) and saw about (6) tards hang a slight right into a Park type preserve setting

Looks like a good time, but is there any other time on a sumo?
