Any MN troopers out there

Anyone interested in doing a group ride if the snow ever melts?

Depends on where you are located in MN. I live near Duluth. If you are anywhere near here, we have a small group (5-6 riders) that routinely get together for local 100+ mile rides. We seek out curvy scenic routes that have ma&pa coffee shops or restaurants for a break. I can shoot you a PM when we start riding in a few weeks.

Honestly, If any of you get up this way to Duluth, I would be happy to provide some group riding opportunities as well as some lodging. I summer at my lake cabin just north of Duluth, could easily provide room there or in town. I ran into a couple of guys last summer who were riding the Lake Superior circle tour. Almost went with them, had the time off but was previously engaged. Anyway, made the same offer to them. Minimally, we should attempt at coming up with a few rally points this summer. Always fun to visit with other riding enthusiast.

I have a Vstrom at my lake cabin/house north of Duluth on weekends and I'm always willing for a day ride. During the workweek I'm in the Southwest Minneapolis area commuting to work on a Honda NT700V. I seem to pick motorbikes that are function over form.

Ride while your body will still let you.

Tuuli,
We should go for a ride sometime. I am about 35 miles north of Duluth in the summer otherwise live in town. If you are interested, every few weeks some friends and I get together for local rides. BTW no one in the groups last name is Lorenzo or Rossi so safe group of riders. Another idea would be to attend bike night at Sir Benedicts on Superior street. Would be nice to see a few more V-Stroms there. There is always some cool bikes showing up.
