New rider in Aurora

Hi guys

I am from Aurora/Naperville. Bought my first bike GSX R600 last week. Heard about this forum from a colleague.

Can you guys suggest a good body shop around Naperville/woodridge. I would like get the bike inspected and fix ny issues before exploring the roads and group ridings.

Welcome to the forum. I would trust Racer Cafe in West Chicago. They tend to cater to track riders and know their way around sport bikes. There are a few other shop owners on the forum, too, but none as close to you as RC.

It is far better to be thought of as a smartass than an dumbass. And as American Humorist Robert Benchley (1889-1945) noted, "no matter how well-intended, any reply to a dumbass question will inevitably appear smartassed". - Bob Hall (creator of the Miata)

Welcome to the board!

Dante: [to Randal] You never go ass-to-mouth!
Randal: [to Dante] Would you grow up!
Becky: [to Dante] OK, I'm only telling you this because we're friends, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass-to-mouth.
Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.

Half of the employees there are named Eric, so this made me chuckle.

I like the guys at RC as well. Very helpful.

07 model. Nothing wrong with the bike, I wanted to have an inspection done to the motorcycle.
Ended up going to dealer and got it inspected.

I heard people on the train this morning talking about Racer Cafe ... I'll have to check them out some time. Must be a good place.

Signed,
