Hometown: Chicago Burbs

Current: 2004 Aprilia Futura (commuting & touring); 2002 Triumph Speed Four (sold); 2004 Ducati Monster620 (for sale). Previous rides: 2006 Triumph Sprint 1050 (Great engine, crap luggage & saddle); 2002 Ducati 900Sport (regret selling).
Been riding since 2004. Skill level: Perpetual novice.
Long distance Sport-Touring. Gave up track days. Street rides at a "swift pace." You know, quicker than "Harleys & parking lots" but not quite "tickets & jail-time." You can keep Wisconsin's vastly overrated, under-maintained, dangerous county roads with their patchwork "pavement" & gravel-strewn blind corners. Best public roads I've ever ridden: The Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York.
I tend to ride solo. Joined group looking for riding destinations/events, but not in a group. I'm too slow for most & too fast for a few. I usually just ride alone & enjoy things at my own pace.
