New old guy from Willowbrook (Lemont area)

Greetings,
Looking for folks to ride with in the SW or western burbs. I am getting back into
riding after about a 5 yr layoff. Had some back issues and surgeries.
My giddy-up bike is an '07 KTM Supermoto R. My putt around ride with the wife is an '05 Road King. The wife is out of town for the weekend, so if anyone wants to go for a blast, let me know. I know we don't have many around these parts,
but as many twisties as possible preferred. I used to road race back in the day,
cars and bikes, so I have been known to wick it up on an "as needed" basis.
But then again, that was a while ago. Who knows what's left in the tank now.
Anyone want to help me find out?

Mike K

Let me know if you decide to do something. I was going to head up to the Blue
Moon early Sun to meet a friend, but don't have much planned after that.
I am open to all suggestions.

Thanks
Mike

Headrush,
Haven't had it all that long, but so far so good. Had some back issues and just getting back into it. I did the tard treatment to an early 950 Adventure model, before KTM decided to build their factory version, and it turned out great. Had it at the Autobahn track a few times and it was great fun playing with all the sporty bikes. I really like the compact v twin and this SMR was well sorted by the PO.
Would love to get it out on some twisties, I know they are few and far between around here, but let me know if you guys want to go for a blast sometime. I'm just north of Lemont around 83 and the canal.

Mike, I enjoy riding the twisters too, and just getting back into riding myself. The motors bikes by KTM and Ducati are beautiful - wouldn't mind getting one myself. My neighbor knows some good roads going up to Starved Rock and there are some good roads in Marseilles too. We usually go on Sunday, so the next time we make plans, I'll let you know.

You're not too far off the Frontage roads, it's a small road, but a great deal of fun compared to everything else.
