    DS in Illinois?

    http://www.transamtrail.com/ It starts in Tn and goes to the west coast. IF I get a DS bike I'd like to give it a try sometime. Maybe this fall. Just take a few days and see how far I make it. You can go over to www.advrider.com and read some ride reports. Here's a good one on a guy that rode about half of it. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=467171

    I can't DS ride yet. I have a Street bike and a dirt bike but not one that will do both.

    DS in Illinois?

    It has trails. It's a fraction of the size of St. Joe. They have real bathrooms and showers, a bike wash, concession stand with some pretty good food, and on some weekends the repair shop is open. We haven't been there this year but I heard they have had some flooding problems. It costs $12 a day per rider and you have to have a state sticker. You can buy it there. It gets really muddy after a rain.

    DS in Illinois?

    Good Question. I'm over by litchfield. Not a DS yet. I have a TTR225 and a VTX1800c. I'm probably going to sell the VTX and buy a XR650l or klr. If I do I'll be looking for more places to ride in IL.
  8. I have a street bike lic. I ride a Honda VTX1800c (110 ci, 106hp 120fp of torque) . Love the bike. I wouldn't try to take the dmv test on it. It weighs just over 700lbs dry weight.
