Hello from Illinois

I just bought a 07 Roadliner S with around 4,600 miles on it. I don't have the bike yet it's in Tennessee still. I had a 05 Vstar 1100 Classic I sold a couple of years ago. I hope I ride this one more than the last few bikes I've owned. I just had the itch to ride again, and I'm excited about this bike. I should have it in about a week or so, can't ride yet anyway there's snow on the ground this morning. I can't wait for spring!

Welcome! You'll love the balance and power of the new machine.

You a southern Illinoisan? Carbondale? Cairo?

That's funny! I hope I'll enjoy it. I'm in northern Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. I wish I lived in southern Illinois for riding, I'm sure there's more open rodes down there. Thanks for the welcome.

I grew up on the southside of Chicago when I was a kid years ago, I'm 56 now. I live in Lagrange Highlands, it's just south of Lagrange. McHenry's a nice area, I used to go to the Chain of Lakes with my boat.

Yeah, wasn't too bad.

My dad kept his boats at the junction of Boone Creek and the Fox River at (I think) Larsen Marine. Watched the outboard boat races for years on Marine Days and eventually learned to swim in the Fox and water ski in Pistakee Bay...some 55 years ago...
