St. Louis area Strom riders?

Just wondering if I'm the only one. I'd love to meet up with other Strom riders and experiemtn with some routes that I couldn't take on my GSXR. I know a few areas around that I would go on a dual-sport, but not so much on a more substantial mount!

Kinda St Louis....

Hey there!
My Wee-Strom hasn't even been ordered yet (next week, after taxes- then it becomes a "Wheee-Strom) but I'm about 4-5 hours away in chicagoland.
I have some riding friends in WI too, so maybe a tr-state get together could happen once spring hits...
Peace,
River

I'm in Springfield, IL, later this spring/summer I could be talked into a DS ride. It would have to be a pretty easy one since I have about 3 miles of dirt total experience. I just got my 1000K6 and haven't had much time to try it out.

squash,

I'm over in Mascoutah IL, just on the other side of Scott AFB. There's also a Wee rider in town. I've only ridden with him a couple of short local rides. We're both pretty conservative riders.

My neighbor and I often hit Arcadia Valley down around Ironton and areas south/east. Lots of good curvy paved roads. He rides a BMW GT, so we pretty much stick to the pavement. I have seen a lot of gravel roads leading off the County roads that look interesting.

Here's a link to my page. There's a few MO pictures on it.

Let me know if you want to do some light off-roading some Saturday. I can check with my strom buddy to see if he 's interested also. I just made the switch from street to strom last year, so I'm not yet comfortable doing serious river crossings and the such.

I'm in STL and would love to meet up with some fellow Strommers for a ride. Ironton is a great place, we should set something up for a nice cruise.

SW MO Storm Riders

I have an opportunity to purchase a HD Sporty 1200 for a great price but have never riden one. I am going to Lebanon, MO tomorrow to go to the HD dealer to sit on it..I expect to not buy one though.....why would I? My buddy has a 05 Wee Storm and he let me ride it and WOW was I impressed, hmm let me see do I want the HD that everyone else has, or the fun and comfortable Wee......oh yea, there is a Suzuki dealer in Leb as well, might be coming home with a new one.....that is probably more likely the case!!!!

Are there any "Riders of the Storm" in the Fort Leonard Wood, Mo area...I really wana do the fire roads and trails in the Mark Twain National Forest! I got miles and miles in my back yard to play on.....If I get this thing anybody from STL or anywhere ever come out this way to ride? Let me know!!
