New member near Chicago

Hello all,

I am new to the forum. I have been riding for 4 years and own a V-Star 1100 Custom. I am hoping to meet other riders in my area (about 45 miles west of Chicago) so I can have more riding partners. My hubby does not ride and I haven't lived in this area too long.

I would love to hear from anyone who would like to say a quick hi or who live near me!

Thanks,
Sarah

Just sayin

Hubby isn't necessarily afraid. He has other hobbies that take precedence for him. It doesn't help that he is a nurse with ICU and OR experience and has seen the result of far too many bike accidents.

He worries about me on the bike but understands riding for me is therapy!

Hey Sarah. I'm a nurse at the trauma center in Memphis. I catch a lot of flack from the wife as well as the folks I work with. But like you, it is great therapy.
