Im sure no one will show up, but I will be at the gas station across from the Burger king off of I-80 and Harlem between 12-12:15 if anyone wants to ride down to the show.

At the Speedway Gas Station?

I'm supposed to ride up into the city leaving out (Park Forest)around 6am, back around 7:30-8:00am. We were thinking of riding out to Starved Rock for the afternoon, but if not, I might meet you there. Don't wait for me long.

Long story, but in a nutshell i checked the weather as i usually do before i go out, and i saw nasty T-storms to the west heading our way. So I decided not to ride, but rather drive. I called a forum member(Yohan2NV) who was going to drive also, but he said they were all going to ride. So the meeting time was for noon in Downers Grove. By the time everyone showed, it was 1:45.

We all left and going down Rt.83, myself and Yohan got lost in the cars and were way behind the group. I didnt see them pull off, so when i got an opening, i cracked her open to catch up. I look back and I dont even see Yohan. At this point I was wondering where the hell everyone went. Well they all exited Ogden and I flew right by it. I turned around in Oakbrook, and didnt think they were going to wait for me, so I went home. Needless to say Im sorry I didnt get to see it.

wow, that is messed up!
i left dgy with a different group. our group met there at 9 AM. since there were so many bikes, the group was moving really slow so we didn't ever get split up too bad and we didn't loose a single person.

That was my first ride with them. It was nice of the other group to wait for us (stupid lights!) those couple of times.

It was fun and I'm glad I got to go. (all those burnouts though were driving me crazy :nono). I didn't see anyone from the CLSB there except GautamCity myself so if anyone showed up, sorry I missed ya. :(

It looked horrible that sat when I left but on my way to DGY it cleared right up and was pretty nice all afternoon.

It's not that big of a deal, but if you set up a meet, then change it, a quick post here would be nice in the future. I rode there and waited a while, but being unsure of where the show was, I went home. Like I said, not a big deal, just two wasted hours out of my day.

Sitting on the tank backwards then followed by a stoppie not to mention how he got there, leaping from the pegs onto the tank (did a christ) then another small leap to face backwards (another quick christ) and finally sitting down and did that awesome insane stoppie all this happened in about 10 sec. or so... thats just one of the things that you guys missed and Todd is just flat out smooth oh! how about the running fat guy chasing his 4 wheeler :laughing that was a priceless moment anyone got that on tape? post! post! post!.... And Terminator I am very sorry (not going to happen again) we lost you and you were our direction to the place to so we kinda lost quite some time lookin for the it but obviously we found it anyways great show...

I was there with the girlfriend and kids........... It was cool to finally watch these guys without having to look over our shoulders for the cops to come bust us up...... Last time was in Romeoville ended up sittin in the grass for an hour atleast while they checked our tires for excessive wear and ran our license's

Your right Todd is the smoothest Ive ever seen,
The chub on the quad made my day, And I think the black guy on the gold drag bike shoulda won the burnout contest.

Yeah, this was cool as hell. I thought it was going to storm for sure, but it held off all day.

These guys rock. The guy from 1096 doing breakdance moves on his tank?!?!?! SICK!!! Jumping from the pegs to the tank and then jumping from the tank to his seat backwards with no hands too. SICK X 2!!!!!!

Todd Colbert, I didn't recognize the name at first but after watching him, WOW1 That guy is very impressive. He only messed up once as far as I could tell.

Dan, well I think that guy used his frame sliders to park his bike more than his kickstand :D. He was awesome too.

That was a fun day, and I'm glad I didn't not go because it looked like it might rain, it turned out to be a beautiful day. :)
