Warm up picks from last trip.
Now those pics look warm Martin. Not taken around here for sure. Freaking snowing again today. I hope the ice is off the lakes by May. A real change from last years spring. I was supposed to drive down to Atlanta to pick up my New (to me) R1200 Adventure but the snow south changed my plans. I am psyched and ready to do some riding. Probably trailer down to AZ for some warm weather desert riding in a couple weeks.
Hey guys, I have an 86 K100rs and my wife is learning on her 87 K75s So we are following along as well. You are all invited up to Kenosha Yacht Club (not pretentious at all) for snacks and drinks this summer. We are up there Thursday and Sundays.
Since you live in Highwood, you also know that a few of us tend to assemble at The Full Moon in Lake Bluff on Sunday mornings from April to November - weather permitting. Most of us buy breakfast and/or coffee and meet other riders. Mostly European bikes and a nice crowd. Welcome!
Talk about a Good Friday.
TY Jesus. (Can we blaspheme in heah?)
And the weather looks GREAT too.
I am located near Wauconda so riding East is not usually on my agenda but do go the the FM on occasion.
I tend to head North West or any combination of the two. Nice place in Walworth for breakfast.
I didn't make it to Full Moon last Sunday, because I went straight up to Kenosha. They aren't going to be a "hot" destination until Mid May. But I have been up at Full Moon around 9-10am the prevous Sundays. It would be great to see some forum members up there. You can't miss me. 6'7" with a K100RS Alaska Blue.. I like having breakfast (because if we don't support the host they will close like the Highland House did.. This next Sunday, I am thinking of going up to Beaver Dam, Wi for an early rally. Weather Permitting. http://maps.google.com/maps?aq=&rlz=...en&sa=N&tab=wl About half way between Madison and Fond du Lac. See This for more info. So this Sunday I may be up there early for breakfast because to get to Beaver Dam by Noon it is three hours.
As far as Kenosha goes as the weather gets better, it's a better destination.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you feel like riding because I just may join you.
So far I have re-introduced myself to riding in the last three months. So my habits are not set. But to form a good group it always helps to meet face to face and do some brother bonding. Early in the season we can start at the Moon and then once we can put a name to a face we can work on ideas and consensus, choose a destination. The Rally in Beaver Dam is a good one. There is also a Not Starved Rock ride with Chicago Regional Area BMWOA group that same weekend. Not sure where they are headed. Equally if no body wants to go up there, then we can ride locally.
Hi All, I be leading a ride to Oregon IL via old Cherry Valley route this coming Sunday. The route will have variety of secondary roads thrum farm fields between Chicago and Cherry Valley and then along the river to Oregon IL for lunch.
Ride pace will be relaxed to brisk, I did not check the route for road condition from last winter so extra caution will be taken. Everyone is responsible for their bike so please check your equipment for proper tire pressure and overall condition.
There will be a fuel stop in Cherry Valley apr. 75- 80 miles for those with a smaller tanks and for a pit stop for refreshments.
So far we got 5 riders from another board.
Shell at the corner of Rand Rd (Rt12) and Lake Cook Rd.
Meet up @10:15, Kickstand up @ 10:30 sharp.
Stay in touch, you said you knew a fellow who was delivering a 1600 back from the east coast. PM me is info if you are willing to share his contact info.
