I'm back!

Hey everyone!

Well I've been back in Chicago for almost a year now but the bike itch hadn't hit me.

Well it hit me. I think I'm going to go pick up the '05 749 Dark they have over at MCC.

Anyway, wanted to say hey... if I end up getting back into riding I look forward to hitting the streets with you guys again!

I finally decided to stop screwing around with my life and got a job as a consultant with Accenture. Best decision I've made so far!

Now all I have to do is remember which train takes me out to Villa Park...

Negative on both counts. Turns out I couldn't hurt myself quickly enough on the SV - so I switched over to the one in my avatar. Also turns out I couldn't bang enough chicks living in LP, so I moved down to River North. Where'd you land? LP again?

That a ZX-9R?

I've seen you work your game and call bullshit on your excuse for moving out of LP.

I'm in Wicker Park, Divison and Damen. I'm actually thinking about moving to River North in August - it's a SWEET area. You have space to park your bike down there?

Okay - truth is I was already done with all the chicks on the Northside, and rather than start over with the "A"s again I figured I'd go for a change in scenery (bonus is that the RN chicks make more $$ than I do and can afford to take me to all the fancy pants joints around there)

...and I park the 750 in a very expensive highrise parking garage. So that's nice.

Ah yes, I figured you moved because of something like that. I need to move to river north. I am kind of sick of these hippie-chick communication major dumpy chicks squeezed 15 into an apartment because they're making $17k a year in wicker park.

*Whew*!

Find me a place near an el stop, would ya?

I don't want to ask this, but how much is a MOTORCYCLE spot in a highrise? I've heard anywhere from 150-350.

I got run over by the truck and then I hit the gravel/oil slick and did the cliff thing (that totaled the bike).
