I will go if the streets are dry and free of road salt and the temps are not ridiculously cold. Temps in the mid 30's and above will work well for me but I'll pass if it's one of those struggling to get above 20 days. At this time the long range forecast looks good, but it's still 13 days off. Things can change rapidly. I've ridden in about 25 of these runs over the years since about '82. I have nothing to prove so I'm choosey about whether I'll ride in it or not.
There's an old fashioned "railcar" diner on Irving Park Road just west of Ashland near Lakeview High School (is it still called Lakeview?) that makes a good meeting spot. Then ride south on Ashland to Archer, over to Western and south to the woods.
I'll post up a timeline as the run gets closer and anyone is welcome to join me.
If I ride I usually go to the LAMA Toy Run Party at their clubhouse on Fullerton after dropping my toy contribution at the parade's end, then I head for home before sundown.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

I don't know what the official numbers were but that was a bigger turnout then other years I've gone.

It was a little strange not being worried after going through a red-lights and hearing sirens behind me.
