Summer Country Roads Ride 8/21

So here's the new plan - We will still meet at the Starbucks on Barrington Road in Hoffman Estates.  Steve will lead us on a ride to Famous Freddie's Roadhouse in Fox Lake where we will have lunch. After lunch, those wanting to ride the scenic roads of SW Wisconsin will head out for a ride with Steve.  Some of us will head back home after lunch.  This is still a 100% road ride on paved roads and will be taken at an easy pace.  We want to make this friendly for everyone and encourage new members to come ride with us.  Thanks to Steve for offering to lead this. Kickstands up at 10:15 a.m.

    I had a blast on my first meet out with you guys. Everyone was extremely friendly and outgoing. Did anyone else notice that kid riding around his homemade moto-cross track off of Kelsey Rd? (atleast that's where I think it was) We should have stopped and asked if we could play too!
    Adam, I really want to play in the dirt before the season comes to a close. Looks like you'll have to host an event!

    Was great meeting you guys, what a picture perfect day. Adam, I'll take your advice a start looking for a helmet first, then skid plate.

    August 21, 2011

  • Steve

    WOW! The attendees are growing!
    Looking like a great day!

    Maybe a Sawsall? It would probably go kinda late, and I don't want anyone to resort to push ups to stay awake. (;

  • Ross A.

    Cooter, if you ride it over we can use my table sander to round it off for ya. Or I can swing by with a flat file. :-p

    The rear tire on the Sabre is still square...

    August 20, 2011

    Very sad news. Prayers to the family and friends.

  • Kyle

    Hey guys, I really wanted to make this but I lost a really good friend and riding buddy Wednesday night. Another case of people not looking out for motorcycles, and now one of my best friends is gone. Everybody be careful, and stay safe! I've posted a link at the bottom if anybody is interested.

    Sounds like a plan. I hope the weather holds. :)

  • Eric R.

    Kickstands up at 10:15 Take a leisurly ride. You will be arriving about the time it opens if you go straight there. 11AM.

  • Adam R.

    I will eat anywhere I just wanna ride lol

    August 14, 2011

  • Eric R.

    Hey Steve. Was just throwing that docks suggestion for the future. Freddies is cheap and fast which works before a ride. Maybe a meetup on evening at Docks. Do not change your plan. I am shooting to meet you guys at Freddies if I can make it. I may be up North on the bike.

    August 14, 2011

  • Steve

    The food at Freddie's is cheap and OK. Let's take a poll on where to eat. The Docks sound better and would be new to me. :)

    August 14, 2011

  • Eric R.

    If I can make it I will meet at Freddies since I am already in Wauconda. Not much on the food at Freddies so I will most likely eat firs. Just a heads up if heading out this way. Docks Bar and Grill or "Docks on the Rocks" for a good burger on the gigantic deck on the lake. Makes for a nice place to meet. http://www.docksbarandgrill.com/DocksontheRocks.html

    I'm really new lol. like REALLY new, but I see that this is dual sport riders, but was wondering if there are any events where I can possibly take out my Kawasaki Ninja 250R since it is not a dual sport bike =( sry for the newb'ness

  • Doug Shipman (.

    I have no clue if I'm off for this or not, but if I am I will be there. Steve does a great job leading, even with my slow ass. Just don't try to match his entry speed if your not on a sport bike, but that should be common knowledge. My DR doesn't stop like my old crotch rocket.

    August 9, 2011

  • Steve

    I can do it! Just wait at the turn-offs for all to re-gather. :)

    August 3, 2011

  • Mike B.

    Hey Steve, I'm good with you leading a ride to SW WI, but I'd like to keep the type of ride as advertised, easy ride for riders at all levels on any kind of bike. I'm thinking backroads, no highway, all paved. I'm hoping to get some riders out who are just looking for an easy pace, scenic road ride. You up to lead us?

    August 2, 2011

  • Steve

    How about SW WI? Some great rods there. :)

    August 2, 2011

  • Adam R.

    Thanks a TON Mike - I will be super dooper careful with your baby -- for sure!

    August 2, 2011

  • Mike B.

    Adam, you're welcome to ride my KLX. Be gentle . . . .

    August 2, 2011

  • Adam R.

    Not so sure I will be ready for this - might be some red tape involved in getting a title, plates, registration for the new ride :(
    Maybe someone out there with more than one bike will hook me up? lol

    August 2, 2011

  • Steve

    Looks good to me. :)
