    As you have probably figured out by now I haven't been on the site in a while... Sorry so late in responding.

    As far as some riding recommendations go I can say that if you ever make it to southeastern Ohio, it's well worth the trip. If you haven't made it over to Advrider.com yet I would suggest you do. As the name suggests their focus is the Adventure riding community.
    I got rid of my Strom for the sole reason I wanted a more focused ride (Sport Touring or Dual Sport), Ended up with a KLR650 but found out quickly that while it's great fun I wasn't comfortable during my sometimes mandatory freeway commute. So I now have an 02 ST1100. I do miss the Adv style though and am hankering for a small bore DS like a KLX250S or Honda's new CRF250F. The ST for longer tours and the DS for bombing around the lesser traveled roads.
    The Strom is a great bike, have fun!
    And be safe while running in where mere mortals fear to tread!

    Hi, Fire dog My name is shane and Im new on here. Ive mostly just been lurking around, getting the feel of the site. I saw that you were a FF, and from the midwest area ish. So I thought I would introduce myself. Im a FF in Illinois and just got into the adventure bikes last yr. Ive ridden cruisers my whole life but never felt like it was my bag. Now im really loving this style of bike. Are there any good trips in the midwest area you could recommend? Ive pieced together small trips of gravel and backroads but not sure if there is a place where people post this kinda stuff. Anyway thanks and its good to see a brother fireman on here.
