New from Central Illinois
« on: June 04, 2018, 11:00:33 AM »
Hi everyone,


  I am a new member from Decatur, IL.  I ride a 2018 Ducati Multistrada.  Unfortunately I doubt I'll be able to make it to the STAR this year because I just found out about this group and the rally a week or so ago! 


  I wonder if there are any members from my neck of the woods?  The riding is pretty uninspiring here, so I pop down into Missouri whenever I get the chance.


Thanks!
Jeremy

Welcome to MSTA!  You can still register for STAR on-line, or in person in La Crosse.
Check this forum under STAR 2018 folder for lots of details of what is planned and registration, or send me a PM with questions.

Hi Jeremy,
I am from your neck of the woods in Hillsboro. Like you, I found that the best roads in IL are the ones that go across the river into MO. I actually have found some fun unimproved back country roads around here that are best ridden on a smaller dual sport, such as my DR650.

Hope you can make the event. -JEP-

You may well see many more Sport Touring type bikes in your area over the next week or two.  There will be many people passing g through your area on the way to STAR in La Crosse.  If you see ones loaded up and with riders sporting ATGATT, look for an HSTA/MSTA sticker.  It will be us!  Welcome to the group!

Thanks everyone!


Fred, are you also on ADVRider?  In the Central Illinois forum on ADVRider there is a thread called Central Illinois Motosocial where some of us met up for breakfast.  You should join us next time!


I wish I could make it to STAR, but it's doubtful.  I'll look for any riders passing through.

Welcome Jeremy!  You missed a great STAR but hopefully you’ll get to the next.  If you’re ever in Arkansas, come ride with our group.
