Hello in Loves Park from NC

Welp, I'm new here. I am moving to Loves Park/Rockford for work on the 20th, and have family in Chicago. I'm from RDU area in NC, which has an outstanding riding season and a large riding scene. Just saying hello to see what is in store come Spring, as I'm sure you all know, we don't get any snow or cold weather anymore! If anyone is in the Loves Park area.. Let me know!

EDIT: I ride an SV650 and Ninja 250. My 250 is in not so great shape and I won't have the capacity to tow it up here, while the SV was strictly for track use to begin with, it'll be pulling double duty. That said.. I am sad NESBA no longer runs in the midwest Sad because I just renewed my membership in October for a trackday, but I also am a member with STT. I'm don't race, maybe someday... :P

Welcome
Maynard is from around there.
I camp and mountain bike at RockCut State park when the season is here.
Blackhawk farms is really close to there.
Sugar River Raceway too if you are into motards or mini motards.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I have heard of BHF and also Autobahn Country Club. How are the trails at Rock Cut? I started getting into mountain biking the past spring and summer, took a break in fall for school. And as for the motards, I am actually looking at getting a WR250X for a daily rider come spring, so that is always an option.

I figured as much But I will likely be spending a lot of time in the city as well, my brother lives outside of Lincoln Park. Perhaps when it gets warmer I can meet up with you all.

Good to know, I look forward to it. Hopefully I will have picked up another streetbike by that time, I'm turning in my SV's plates this week so it can return to it's original purpose.

Rock Cut trails are pretty intermediate and fun. They have a race there in Oct.

That's what I like to hear! I've been riding on rollers for the time being, rather boring really.
