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

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

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 seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be. (Douglas Adams)

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

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.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles.
