Minneapolis area V-Strom riders !

If I get enough interest from you, I will begin setting up a group ride this Spring. Email me so I can determine your interest in doing something like this.

Revel,
Just bought a big Strom from a buddy down in Winona. I think that I'm going down to pick it up on the 12th of March. I'll be up for rides after that. I also have a DR650 that I've been riding for a couple years that is going to get more dirt focused stuff on it. Keep me posted!

Are the Trout Valley trails still open?? I rode up there years ago, but happened to be there during Turkey season and didn't want to screw up the hunter's morning, so I rode elsewhere... Been tempted to go back but didn't know if it was still open to riding.
My KLR is interested in heading that way for a weekend.. :lol:

Those trails are still legal to ride but they are too muddy right now, we'd do too much damage. There are trails also at Snake Creek and the Bronk unit in Winona so we should plan a ride this spring on the 650's. The guy I'm buying the Strom from also has a KLR and could be talked into it anytime. There would also be some good camping in the Whitewater State park which is down in that area.

Snake Creek, and Trout Valley both have camping on site. I've ridden both on my KTM. Trout Valley was prety tore up the last time I was there, but Snake Creek has always been good in the spring before they get to overgrown.

Sixfiddythumpa,

My wife is from Winona and I think she knows just about every person in that town. She went to high school and college there.

Anyway, glad for the response from everyone. I need to have an idea where everyone would like to do a 1 day group ride to and where to meet. The ride starting point will probably be in the Southwest suburbs of Mpls. Last part of April or first part of May when weather is warmer. But let's wait to hear from everyone.

That is pretty funny, my wife and I went to college there as well as pretty much my whole group of friends. I still love that town and never miss an opportunity to get down there.

We need to get a spring ride going soon, but looking at the weather I don't know if I'll be able to pick the beast up this weekend. We'll have to see how it goes down.

The temps were prety good today, I installed my new Leo Vince cans, and than put about 100 miles on my He-Strom.
