Additionally, I sold the KLR in 2017 and replaced it with KTM 690 enduro. Main bike is 2016 Africa Twin. Maybe Im no longer worthy to be on this site? 😭

Another one, Maple Grove here. Grew up in So. Central MN ag country, lived in both Mpls and STP, Minnetonka for a while, and enjoyed Buffalo while I was there, really made me appreciate Wright County geography. I get back down south around Fairmont due to a riding bud living down there, always a gravel fiesta.

The Dayton gravel roads start just a couple miles NW of me, and the Mississippi is here too, so it kinda feels like home, despite being in suburbia.

I like area of Mille Lacs/ Solana/ Moose Lake/ Namadji/ Duluth/ North Shore trajectory best, but honestly, I will ride anywhere I can go just drop off the tarmac easy.

I firmly believe that time spent in sport on two wheels, dirt, and water, can undo the damage from too much time on 4 wheels on pavement.

The farkling is still reaching crescendo this year, for the first time I bought a bunch of stuff over winter because I was thinking of riding in the warm season. It's project season right now.

jfederline......I work in Rogers, right across from the new Clam building. There are a few of us around this area. We definitely need to get together the summer and get some riding in.

My wife and I relocated from the Chicago area to the Twin Cities area in September. Took the KLR out for 40 minutes on Tuesday after work for the first time since arriving. Really looking forward to finding some great riding in the area!

I requested to join the Facebook group. Thought I was going to be out of town this weekend, but that's been cancelled, so seeing if I can join the ride this weekend.
