  • Let me be the first, but not the last.

    Hello, Land of Lincolner's.

    My name is Mike Lowary and I live in Freeport, west of Rockford. Up here in NW Illinois we have some of the greatest motorcycle roads and I have ridden nearly all of them. Nearby, where I do most of my riding is SW Wisconsin.I don't like any of the sport teams up there, but I Love the state.

    Hi Mike.
    Its always good to have some great roads to ride nearby.
    I would like to come over for a bit of a ride around the U.S. and see for myself some of the riding available.
    Sure is a big place compared to my tiny dot on the map.

        Mike, I live in central Illinois. We have one road in this county that has a curve on it. On the weekends, a group of cycle riders will gather and wait their turn to ride around the curve. Seriously, we have to ride 3 hours in any directions from here to find some good riding.

          Brewster, I'm originally from Champaign - Urbana. I know how bad it is down there with the lack of twisty roads.

            I'm originally from central Illinois. Some scenic roads there too, but too flat and straight for the most part.
            Good to have you on board here.

                Welcome, I live NW side of Chicago. I travel thru Freeport every year to get to the Galena area to ride the roads whether paved or not.

                  Hi Mike.
                  We live in Clinton, south of Bloomington 20 miles,the wife and I both have Polaris quads, we are always coming up to Monroe and unloading and riding to Mineral Point and back.
                  We take the Freeport exit and head straight north.
                  Now, with the new Goldwing,(2016) we would like to come up on it, spend the night in Monroe and come home the next day.

                    Mark, you should look at Mount Horeb, WI as a destination for a weekend or even over night. Great scenery, very curvy roads and lots of shopping for you and wife. Hometown of Duluth Trading Co. and Cave of the Mounds nearby.
