My name is Paul Binder. I live in Oak Park. . I'm a lawyer. Big deal. Ask me about my ride to Alaska!

What bike(s) do you currently own?

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.

How long have you been riding?

On and off (mostly off) since high school.

What type of riding do you like to do (trails, dual sport, street, track, etc)?

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.

What do you hope to get out of this organization?

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.
