New to the forum- Milan IL

Hi everyone,
I was tipped off to this forum by a good buddy dev_man77 who is also new to the forum. This seems like a good place to meet people who share the same passion for two wheels that we do.

Minnesota born and raised, my fiancé and I moved to the QC area about 3 years ago and bought a house in Milan about a year ago. She will be learning how to ride on-road this year so it should be a fun year for us. I have been riding on 2 wheels since I was 7 and street bikes since 16 I am approaching 25 yrs old (hopefully insurance goes down).

I currently have 3 street bikes:
98 GSX-R 750
06 Buell Xb12 SS
03 Buell Blast
I also have a couple Chinese SSR 125cc pit bikes for a small amount of dirt throttle therapy

Here’s a few pictures of the bikes and I hope to meet everyone soon. Hopefully have some good weather here shortly so we can get some riding in!

Hello guys, btw real name is Chris.

Unfortunately I have not done any track riding yet however, definitely something I would like to do at some point. I see you guys and gals do quite a number of track days. Might have to tag along with a group sometime!

Awesome, another Minnesotan! :welcome: to the heaven that is Iowa! If you ever need to wax nostalgic, hit up Shagz. He grew up, um, up there also.

Hope to see you at a bike night or out on the road soon!
