Just complaining!!!!!!!

What does are hard earn tax money go to build I-355 then we have to pay high tolls just to get shaken adult syndrome. I hate taking my bike on 355. Yesterday I had to plow up in Willowbrook and it is the same in my truck. I have rode on gravel roads in better condition. It feels like a washboard.

Living life! Because before you know it it is over!

I know what you mean, I was on it last night in my truck and South of North Ave. it felt like I was in the rhythom section of a supercross track

Oh hell yeah!!! Driving that road with the trailer and bikes was horrible. Jim describes is perfectly.

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

These roads suck pretty much wherever you are at up here in the Chicago area..I guess it all the use but I totally agree that 88 is the worst...

Agreed! It always bothers me driving on 88! I'm paranoid enough about my car, I don't need encouragement from a shitty road!

Give it a week and check the roads, couple of weeks of this below zero weather and the roads are gonna have more potholes than you can dream of.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Either 355 is pretty damn bumpy or my 929 needs a new suspension.

88 & 355 both suck...funny thing is, there's a dip as you get off the 88 ramp onto 355 north, and I swear to GOD that I whack my head on the roof of my truck every single time I pass that spot.
