Wow, noe ride report in almost a week. What the heck did everyone fall off the short yellow bus and forget to ride this week?:confused

Anyone looking to ride this week? Anyone going to go to RA over the weekend for Cycle Fest? Hello, anybody home?

Ciao,
Lupi

i'd like to go out on that route with you Jim. small group .. maybe you can show me a few things.
Jeff and I took scott back there last week and i told him i was gonna follow him and critque him(s/p?) he like the idea. After A couple of roads we stopped and i told him what i saw and what I thought he could do to improve. did this step again, then i had him follow me through some turns and watch what i did, and jeff followed him. went back over some of the roads and practiced what we shared with him, I can say although his speed didnt pick up much, he did 1) pick better lines 2) looked through the turns and 3 became much smoother. with some more practice he will be hanging with the front guys!!
**edit** and just a side note on the speed thing, I told him not to worry about the speed but to practice the other skills first, just want to clearify that

So if your serious, and think this may help Im game and im sure Jeff is also. or if you just want to ride let me know.

You just live to F-ing far away. I just can't handle the 200 miels round trip on the tollways anymore. I like sport touring, but the a 600 jsut doesn't cut it. It's mostly the wind noise and buzzing handle bars.

I've even considered getting something like a ST1300 or FJR1300 for my next bike or at least a VFR. But then again... after seeign the RC-51... I think John's got the right idea.

Hey if you got decent places to ride down there i'd be happy to ride down there on the weekend. hell i put 10,000 miles on my bike last year, so im not affriad to ride places, just think the riding alone is boring!

Hey I'm looking for something along those lines (no pun). I've been wanting to hit the road with someone who has lots of track days under his/her belt so I can start picking some better lines myself:jester If anyone's game in the NW burbs I'm free whenever. I lean hard but that's about it, doesn't improve my speed around the twisties too much, so if anyone's out there w/ some good experience that could help me out, I'd appreciate it.
thanks

This route you guys are talking about, is this in the back roads of like Huntley, out near union. Starts near woodstock then ends up near Crystal Lake? I while ago I was shown this way by DanO. I try to get out on those roads every Sunday if I'm not on the boat!
