Default Trip to Chicago

Well went on a trip to Chicago this weekend with my club. We left saturday morning around 9:00. Got home yesterday around 3:00. Put 571 miles on the bike. Had a great time. Going on a short club ride thursday night, probably put 150 miles or so on.

Awesome man Chicago is a cool place. My good bud played ball for Da Bears so I've been up that way a time or two.

DA Bears.

Did you ride up 57 to get there? Just wondering if you came through Champaign. Would have loved to see another Stryker .. i'm all alone.

Don't feel bad Nogard. I know there are others nearby, but I have not seen any either. Just look at it this way. You are still one of a kind, at least for now.

I always flew up from Dallas. My last trip to Chicago was August 2010.

We rode 12 most of the way. Took mostly back country rodes, the other members of my club prefer not to ride busy rodes. We hit 94 for about 20 miles and one member was white knuckling it the whole time. lol

I don't blame them for white knuckling. Its scarey out on the 94, even in a car.
