Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Welcome Bro - Chicago rocks, (5) months out of the year the weather sucks - Yes, it is pricey to live in the City but like I tell all these fucks, if Illinois sucks so bad then why the fuck ya still here?

You are coming in Spring so you will see the City "turn" from Salty to Fun

Welcome! What you really need is new IT equipment for your house. Drop me a note and I will hook you up with a few new blader servers, SAN, workstation, firewall, laptop and 48port switch. With the new equipment, you will be able to optimally view chicagolandsportbikes.com.

In all seriousness, welcome.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

I don't think we have many "clubs" persay, most people ride with a group but this site is pretty cool to just hang out and figure out what you like best. The area does not provide the best riding in the world, but there are some good places... and of course, if you want speed, take it to the track. Enjoy your time here!

I could be wrong, but I think there are more tracks within a few hours or less of Chicago than anywhere else in the US.
