McHenry County

Just picked up a Honda CBR250R couple of weeks ago. Been riding cruisers or standards for the last 25 years. Even though it aint to fast its fun as hell. Im looking forward to more riding this year, if the weather cooperates.

Nice choice of bikes! Look forward to meeting you and seeing that bike. im sure there will be plenty of good riding weather this year.


Edit: Welcome to the madness!!

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

Thanks for the welcomes. I have a Sportster too that I basically gave to the wife. She started on a scooter and then a GZ250 which she just sold. Since I got the CBR I havent even messed with my dead Volusia which is just collecting dust now.
