New guy from DeKalb

Going through and see what forums I can find on my iPad and found this. Nice to find a local one. Been riding street bikes for a few years now. My current bike is a 2005 zx6r. Been riding/riding dirt since I was a little kid ( I'm 24 now). Selling the dirt scooters to make way for the street. As long as its not nasty out, this morning is questionable, I ride my bike everyday to work which is up in crystal lake. Always looking for some nice curvy and scenic roads in the northern ill area or even out by starved rocked. My bike has an ugly paint scheme and will be getting redone over the winter. I'm hoping to make it a somewhat show bike by next spring!

Welcome.

Curvy roads in northern illinois? You need to get over to Savana and north to Galena for anything close to curvy.

Try S/W wisconsin west of Madison. Pick any letter in the alphabet and enjoy.

it's not the fall that kills you, it's that sudden stop
