What location do you have in mind for the ride? I am always interested in any excuse for a ride, just have to squeeze it into my schedule! Any info yet?

Regards, Tim

I'm game depending on the date. The wife is pregnant and I'm doing a lot around the house.

out west to Galena

Heading west is always nice- figure we'd head out to Galena- then maybe a little north-work our way back east then back to the starting point- a great round robin route-= take as many scenic backroads as possible- with awesome stops in between. Any takers?

Tell your friends!

Would love to go on a ride with nothin but Vee riders but any and all bikers are welcome! Help me generate some interest in this. I'd like to get at least 2 dozen riders together! The more we are in force- the better chances we have against the cages out there!

May every ride you take give you peace , joy, and inspiration! Ride Safe!!!

August 4th it is!

Dear Strommers and Strommettes,

The date for the Northern Illinois ride is August 4th. I confirmed it with my wife
so I'm cool with this! We will be meeting in the Northwest Chicago Suburbs-
Schaumburg area- Heading out to Galena.

Now- we can make this just a day trip- or- we could camp/hotel somwhere
and then return the next day to starting point- looking for input and suggestions. Basically, I need to gauge what everyones' trip duration max is- we want to make this an enjoyable, safe ride- not a marathon ass killer-
and we want to have some good off bike time as well- so it's a balance.
Let me know what all of you interested parties think and I'll try to come up with a plan. Mark the 4th of August in your calendars- the ride date is set!

May every ride you take give you peace , joy, and inspiration! Ride Safe!!!

Daily marketing for the Northern Illinois Ride Aug 4

Strommers- after doing an extensive map recon- I've determined that a ride to Galena, south to Savanna along the river then back to start- we can still make it an overnight event if there are any interested. Let me know.

May every ride you take give you peace , joy, and inspiration! Ride Safe!!!

Well, The Aug 4 event looks like about 4 bikes!

4 is better than 1!

Anybody have any ideas on how to get this shindig rippin?

As Ross Perot would say, "I'm all ears"!

May every ride you take give you peace , joy, and inspiration! Ride Safe!!!
