Just recently moved back to illinois from a bit of wandering around Arizona and South Carolina. Looking to see if there are any members that live up here. Looking to meet some new riding buddys, do some exploring or find some local dirt, maybe even host a tech day or something. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Some of the guys I work with are planning on riding the twat at the end of this summer. It should be a fun time. The guys who run a guided tour of the route are coming to my work on Saturday for a presentation.

If the weather ever breaks freezing up here some of us klr guys should go grab dinner one night and take a little ride.

I'm in Spring Grove. There is some riding at Bong and I also ride the Cheese Country trail about once per month throughout Spring through Fall. There are also a number of gravel roads in Wisconsin. I haven't found any good riding in Northern Illinois.

I'm in Chicago. Would definitely be interested in attending a tech day. Rode the TWAT solo last year and had a blast. Considering repeating this season if winter ever ends.

Welcome back. I'm laid up with a busted ankle so hopefully I'll be back riding mid to late June. There's a new guy nearby on .net by the name of pistolpete686. Look him up.

Hi All:

New owner of a 2001 KLR650. I'm up here in Lake Villa Illinios. Maybe we should start a KLR650 Meet Up Group for Northern Illinios/Southern Wisconsin??

Thoughts?

There is a fantastic meetup group in Illinois called CDSR (chicago dual sport riders). Of course, there are members from all over. Everyone I've met in the group has been awesome. A handful of guys have KLR's but they do a lot of dual sport events and a lot of different bikes show up. Good people.

Of which I am a member! ;) Probably a good idea to not have a dedicated KLR group, otherwise others won't be able to see our bikes and become enlightened! :)

Thank you for posting about this group. Joined yesterday and registered for my first meetup! Really appreciate the information.
