Hey...

It's been years. I can't believe this is still going. I wonder who is still around? Hope you all are doing well.

Do you still do bike nights?

I lost my old email so, my user name is the same, but different.

Is kind of sad to see most of this gone. I guess it was inevitable. Anyone going to the MotoGP viewing at the Triumph dealer in St Charles this Sunday at Noon?

Still pop in here. Havent rode the YZF since 2013. Havent been on the HD this year at all. 1st ride of any motorcycle this year will be this weekend at Road America. Street riding lost its fun after getting hit by a hit and run car on the HD in 2014 then 2 weeks later 2 guys got killed here by a hit and run. HD probably is going to be sold soon. Looking at getting rid of the YZF, if I can find someone who wants it in the condition its in. The petcock failed and flooded the engine and took 4 months to get a new one shipped. By the time I got the part it was winter. Then the crash. Its been sitting untouched. Needs carbs worked on and alot of the consumables all went at the same time (brake pads, chain/sprockets, tires, clutch) and the front forks need a new slider tube (chrome flaked). One of those everything happened at once.

Sorry, to hear about all the craziness. I just returned to motorcycling after a 9-year hiatus, a few months ago.

I live in Dekalb County so the backroads are farms and it's pretty laid back out here. I am thinking of going to MOTOBLOT in September. Other than that, I was hoping to make a nice night or two.

You guys still do those and who is still around?

There isn鈥檛 a lot of activity here these days. I鈥檓 back in Chicago after working out east for a few years. Unfortunately, I haven鈥檛 been on the bike much this year. The Strom is ready to ride, just haven鈥檛 had anywhere to ride to lately. Too much work to do.
