Riding Morton Arboretum???

I'm fairly confused on this. If you go south on Park Blvd it looks like you can get into the West section of the Arboretum since there are no gates of any sort. Has anyone rode in that area.... or can you ride in that area at all?

Thanks!

+1, go any more than 25mph there and you'll be being a real jerk. Beautiful though.

Obviously, you guys have never ridden with duh. He def is not looking to rail.

The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

If you are talking about the entrance just west of rt.53 and just south of King Ct. on Park...you can get in there, but it only takes you to a parking lot. There is an iron gate, but it's open during the day.

My seester had her wedding there. Nice place. That being said, Will, the Morton Arboretum is a place you walk through rather than ride through. At least this way it gives your girl the impression that you are being romantic and allows for blowjobs by the bushes over by dere.

Think of the proper etiquette as that of being in a library. So a loud set of bikes rolling through, even slow, wouldn't necessarily be appropriate or welcome.

Being romantic is just one of many ways men use to get into a girls pants. Some men are sincere about it and some are not so much. But in the end, its all about that "V".

I've gone in there on my bike before. Now I wasn't trying to rail through there, but once that place gets into full bloom, I'm gonna be taking glory shots of my super rare gixxer there...

I think you should take a rocket car through there and take out romantic couples casually strolling through as you cut a swath of destruction and make hot sloppy love with the gf while blasting overly loud music out of speakers the melt the clothes off other romantic lovers that don't get caught under your wheels.

Either that or a unicycle with the gf on piggy back. That'll get the juices flowin'

Especially if you're datin' a carnie

As your attorney, I advise to you take this acid
