So my thought is to start a thread that comes up quickly for us new riders. With gas where it is I'm guessing that there will be a few of us.
-plan area rides and all of that other good stuff.

on a whim

So, as a get-away, I decided to sign up for the Experienced Riders Course free of charge (well, ok, 20 bucks) through ISU this weekend. Really on a whim. It's now turning into a family trip where the wife and kids'll stay at the Super 8 or whatever to swim/have fun and Sat after the class we'll stop at the local children's museum. Just havin' fun.

Would FJR's be welcome? (New d/s comes next year, when I can afford it)

Who'd I see?

Thursday evening around 7pm, riding east on Dundee between Arlington Hgts and Buffalo Grove Rd? Pretty sure it was a GS.

It wasn't me. But maybe it was the same GS with a top box that I saw the Monday morning before last zipping along the shoulder of the Ohio street exit ramp off the Kennedy while I was dutifully sitting in a line of cars on my yellow GS.

GS at Ravinia

Anyone here at Ravinia Thursday night for the Matisyahu show? Had a guy pull up next to me with a new(?) GS, quite nice.

I'm out visiting the in-laws and REALLY need a break. Where is the closest BMW dealership from Aurora that I can pick up a shirt or two and drool over the GS's while I re-engergize my batteries to spend more "Quality" time with the "Family"?
