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!

I should be able to make almost any day. I've also got a buddy on a ninja 500 that would probably love to head out to galena. The riding is excellent out their.

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!

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.

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"!

Cross post on the other forum (vstrom.info) and maybe advrider? I would also let those in the "great plains" forum know.

I gotta talk to the wife on this one... She'll be due almost any day at that point and I don't want to be too far from home. Will there be a meeting point for the start?

If you guys are looking for a place to cool down during the ride - come see us at Wilwert's Suzuki in Dubuque. (7 miles west of the river off U.S. 20)
