My name is Blake I moved here from the Minneapolis area last July and don't know many sportbike riders. I'm far from a squid and know all about riding in 35 degree weather on a cold MN fall day. Unfortunately I sold my 2002 R1 before moving down and the
that baught my bike totaled it in two weeks *tear*
However on the upside of possitive, I'm in the process of purchasing a new bike this weekend. I live downtown and have a locked and safe garage for the bike and will be installing a lowjack system.
I am a very cautious rider who knows all about when to be aggressive and when to be defensive, but I must say Chicago traffic and road conditions suck balls!
Does anyone have any advice for me? Basically I just wanted to introduce myself and if anyone lives downtown maybe make a few new friends to ride with.
If you have
to offer on good places to ride (outside of the city) I'm all ears. If I get this bike this weekend, I won't be able to ride until after the 4th of July once I go back to MN and get all of my leathers, helmet, ext.
Glad this site exists! I'm looking forward to meeting many of you and hopefully enjoying a few rides here and there.
