Good stuff to read if you didn't see it. I was looking at a friends copy and was surprised to see that this Sunday's Transportation section had so much motorcycle stuff in it.

There's still some of the articles present on the web edition at

http://www.chicagotribune.com/classified/automotive/


There's a summary of which states have helmet laws, reviews of some of the latest offerings from the major manufacturers, the over 40 age group has the most motorcycle deaths according to the latest data from 1-2 years ago and a writeup on a new Buell...

My boss just brought it in for me today. There is also a write up on the Kevin Schwantz Suzuki School and a lot of good advice in there.

My old roomate saved this section. I still need to check it out some more. It looks VERY informative.

Oh, AND WHAT BIKE'S ON THE FRONT PAGE IN A BIG PICTURE LEANING INTO A CORNER? I prefer the RED one!

:D :D :D :D

that bike on the front page you are referring to is the bike they have the newbies use. If you look farther down at the classroom portion you can see what bike they use to demonstrate advanced technique on: GSX-R 600.

Interesting stuff on the outlaw biker gangs. I don't know if any of you went to the Easy Riders bike show at the Odium this winter, but at a similiar event in New York a fight broke out between to gangs and one 1%er was killed. I went to the show at the Odium and all I saw was outlaw bikers (1%ers). I stood in line to get in to buy my ticket for 20 minutes with my 3 year old son, and there was a group of guys behind me in line and every other word was F*** this or F*** that, at the top of their lungs, for 20 solid minutes. You think they might tone it down with a little kid right there, nope not them. Just a whole different lifestyle than I want to associate with.

Another one of those ridiculous custom "American made" clones that are worth half their purchase price the minute they roll off the showroom.

You don't want one.
