Just saying Hey

I thought I would drop in and say hi. My wife and I will be moving to the Chicago area after the first of the year so I thought I would check this place out. I have about a zillion questions about life in the Chicago area but I will ask them later. Some of you I reagonize from other boards I am on, plus I hope to meet some that race. We live in Atlanta now, and I raced the entire SE WERA region last year. I have not decided what races I will do next year but I will definitley be racing.

Anyway I just want to drop in, and if ou guys have any pointers on where to look for a house let me know, my wife will be working in Naperville.

Welcome to the board, and to Chicago. There are quite a few riders on here who ride track... don't know how many race.

Naperville is a great place to live. I have an apartment there, but plan on buying a house in the next year or so.


Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Welcome!

there are many of us who live in Naperville, and the surrounding suburbs. there are many up and coming communities that you may want to look south and west of Naperville. you can get a pretty nice house for cheap in Plainfield, Oswego, the good part of Aurora, etc.

Naperville...that's actually one of the nicest places to ride through on a sportbike.
