Where are you at? I am looking to ride with some guys this year as I rode 95% by myself last year. All I could find last year was squids, that's all there is in my area. No helmets, shorts, riding through town and parks. My childhood friends that ride....um own bikes won't ride much either. One considers a ride going a few stop lights or riding through the park. If I can pull him away from the city it's just for a short time and he damn nears stops on what little twisties we have. This is the one who constantly bugs me about joining the club he belongs to. He is more concerned with looking good for the girls, wearing his vest and all. I did manage to get him to wear his helmet more.

The other two are worse than him. One has a 05 R1 that has a whopping 3k miles on it. The other bought a '09 Busa earlier in the year and managed to put 1k on it most of was in town. I love to ride and spent the majority of my free time on my bike last year. I am not into the poser thing or drinking and riding nor am I into drugs or anything illegal...well going a little fast at times but in the right spots. I am located in North Central Indiana, Kokomo...Muncie...Anderson area. But I have ventured all over. I am looking to ride with a few other people this year. I did take a few rides to Cincy and Southern Indiana with a guy from work this year and it was fun but he has a crusier and can't hit the twisties like a sportbike can. If there is anyone around these parts that truely love to ride and don't mind a tag along from time to time please LMK, I'd like to learn a few things.Thanks...

I'm in Northern Indianapolis and ride south to Bloomington almost every weekend. When the weather warms up feel free to join up!

I also do track days at Putnam Park, and since it's the only track in IN you should make it down for at least one weekend a year.

Hey, I don't know what your age group is, but I'm 18 and me and a bunch of my friends ride in the New Castle/Muncie/Anderson area. We're always looking for new people to ride with. Hit me up if you're interested.

I am from Greenwood (a bit south of Indy). Unfortunetly I am in freaking Japan right now!:banghead I am in the Navy and my 4 years is about up. I should be back in the good ol' midwest in early Aug. Just in time to catch the last few months of riding season. I acutally just bought a k5 750 the other day and had my buddy pick it up for me. I sold my first bike (SV650S) 2 years ago when my ship got stationed from VA to Japan. So, I havent ridden back home for quite a while. But once I get outta here I will def be looking for some good people to actually RIDE with, not just parkin' lot pimp all night!

Talked to my folks last night and they said it was finally starting to warm up and the snow was just about melted. Anyone get out there and do any riding yet?

Duff, I went to school in Vincennes and 41 seemed to be a straight shot at least until Evansville. I dunno about the other roads but I may expolre them if they are twisty.

I did a little last week, only to pick my bike up from a shop in Kokomo, I road it for 30 minutes back home on Monday. I had to reroof a rental the last three days and it sucked to hear and see all of the guys riding! I should be done tomorrow and what do you know? it's suppose to rain all weekend...

That's right around where my dad used to live before he moved to Danville. Hornaday Drive I believe was the street he lived on
