My name is Paul Binder. I live in Oak Park. . I'm a lawyer. Big deal. Ask me about my ride to Alaska!
I bought a 2009 F800GS in January of 20011. I also bought a 2008 Yammie WR250R in February of 2012. Both farkled out the yin yang. Bought a 2011 800GS for my Alaska trip. Sold the 2011 800GS (my Alaska bike) and sold the Yamaha so I wouldn't break any bones.
On and off (mostly off) since high school.
Dual, but the off road part would be gravel and dirt roads as opposed to gnarley trails. Edit 2012, now I do some gnarley trails.on the Yammie, but so far only in Moab. Edit 2014, no more gnarly trails for me.
Group rides, advice, more skills.
Welcome to CDSR PK. I think we may be neighbors; you Clinton, me Grove. I am more into the "gnarly trails", but lately the 3rd boy has put a kibosh on saddle time. Maybe we'll have a chance to meet at the "Bitter End" if you're up for some gnarly trails on that newly acquired "Yammie" of yours. I may be attending with another fellow OPr if I get the KTM back together by then. Regardless, hope to see you soon... BMW or Yammie saddling.
Hi Paul. Thanks for the referral to CDSR. Look forward to catching up with you again.
Wait, you ARE a lawyer...?!? Oy... ;) Great to meet you today Paul - thanks so much for letting me ride yo' ride. I kindof loved it. Except for the "big ass" sticker, or whatever that said...lol. Hope to see you soon, or as soon as they build that Evanston-Oak Park expressway thing we talked about. Cheers!
