I guess I need to post more often to be recognized.

Well. That there is funny. Guess I should have expected it.

Ok, other than greywolf, anyone else?

Just seems like us Midwest guys are the exception.

Strommers from the upper midwest DO seem to be a little less common than in some areas. There seem to be quite a few around the Indianapolis area, and there are a lot in south central Ohio, which is where I usually end up going for group events. There are also handful from SE Michigan, near Ann Arbor/Jackson.

I know there are at least 5 or 6 from the Chicago area besides you and Greywolf, and there are a couple other V-Strom owners in the SW corner of Michigan where I live, but they aren't on this forum, that I know of. There are also a few in Wisconsin that I see post fairly often, but I am not sure where they are located.
If you ever want to make a run around the south end of the lake, let me know and I can show you some of the better roads SW Michigan has to offer.

I know of two more in Evanston and another in the area. We'll see more chime in I'll bet.

Used to have one, and now am on a FJR. Father still has one though, and a friend down your way has a 1000

Yes. Great to see more of us. I'll be out riding for the rest of the day around Orland park and surrounding area.

Hope to see more.

I saw somebody today on a yellow Wee riding north as I was going home from Wisconsin headed south on 41.
