S.S. Chicago Hangout Spot - Question

Stony Island Ave and (Iím not going to name the cross streets for obvious reasons) but itís on the south side of the city.

Does anyone know if this is still a happening late night spot? It used to be a wild scene but I havenít checked it out this year. I know the cops seemed pretty lenient with the bikers down there.

Most of these cats are afraid of the South Side. It's too "ghetto" for them.

It seems to be hit or miss on Stony Island especially by the White Castle/79th street area. Sometimes there are 100+ bikes down there other times you don't see a soul.

Haven't been out there at all this year. Last few times I was there last year we spent more time moving around to the next spot when the cops came than we did doing anything else. It's still usually fun to go down there anyways. One time last year the cops turned on the fire hydrant in front of the fruit market so instead of racing it just turned into a burnout contest .Hmm... I think I'm gonna take a ride out there this weekend .

Haha.. they used to do that all the time when I was down there. Anyway, I stopped going when I watched someone's head get shoved through a store window. Uhm yeah, that's no fun.

Well, I been out there a few time this year and it is a hit or miss. The burger spot is a meeting place some times. but I hear the water is the place to go sometimes. The other hangout spot is on the Westside a few blocks north of 290.

Most times during the day if you go where they line up for the toys for tots, look in the park.

It seems like this year there are not to many hangouts to speak of.

  • A week at Deals Gap - $200.
  • Roasting a set of tires at the Gap - $350.
  • Low siding your CBR1100XX - $9,500.
  • Get a 2004 Aprilia Futura - Dream Come True!
