Hello from Chicagoland midwest
« on: January 06, 2018, 11:49:23 am »
Been around bikes for a while, SuperT is my "go anywhere" bike. Actually, 5 of us all got the same brand new SuperTs for our trip from Chicago to Prudhoe Bay, and we all love the bike.
I also have a shop, and am willing to help out fellow bikers (just bring beer), so if you are around St.Charles area in IL, contact me and stop by.
Cheers,
Gregor

As I get older, I am no longer surprised at what I know, I'm surprised at how much I don't know.

congrats on your new ride, mastergregor, with a simple hello.....
comments with substance will be chastised by soulless pub riders lacking intelligence and imagination...
while calling out princess trolls will be met with the monomaniacal pruning shears of triggered snowflake censorship.....

Welcome!  I am just down the street on the west side of Aurora.  Good to know there are more local bikes!  Are all 5 of your friends local to the Chicago area too?

Welcome Gregor!  Not far away in Hoffman Estates.  I've met up with a couple guys here on the forum locally, but scheduling can be tricky!  I'd love to hear about your Prudhoe Bay trip.  I like to frequent McGough Rd a little west of you, closer to Sycamore.
