What other crazies were out yesturday?

Took the bike out Saturday night and Sunday. The looks on people's faces when I would pull up was funny. Saw two other bikes out yesterday, one on 90/94 eastbound right around Irving Park red sport bike didn't catch the make

And the other bike was heading east on Irving right by Portage Park. It was good to know I wasn't the only crazy one out in the cold.

You wanna see my itinerary?

Went out to a coffee shop Sunday morning with w21irving and then rode to a place for breakfast. While we were eating we saw a lot of people stare at our bikes in disbelief....especially when there were some flurries out!

We are also thinking of attending bike night at Players Club this Tuesday

Not at all. I was wearing First Gear's TPG base gear top and bottom, A*balaclava, and Scorpion Exo Recon gloves. Only the very tips of my fingers and toes were a little cold after about 30-45min outside. Highway riding included.
