It is frustrating getting a format or site figured out then an overhaul. You have to get all reacquainted. Definitely looks different.

Agreed. Great site for sure but for me it is or was a lot of information in many hard to find places. I still find or re find things I didn't know existed. I guess it will take awhile to get used to. Probably change as soon as you get comfy again.

At the bottom of the page there is a drop down menu where you can change the look of the site. Aka the forum skin. Click through them and find one you like.

Do you like living here?

I've lived in the Chicago area all of my 4 decades. Have wanted to move for the last 2 decades but family, wife and job keep me here. Being someone that loves outdoor activities such as motorcycle riding and offroading I find that this area doesn't have much to offer. I don't like 5-6 months of cold weather and no legal trails that go anywhere. Sorry but offroading at Cliff's just doesn't cut it. It's a good place but IMO a trail should go somewhere.

What keep you guys living in the Chicago area? Do you like it here?

I am on the other side of he argument....i am on about 12 forums with this standard VB layout, so it make it much easier for me to navigate now.... The old was a pain for me....now everything is in the same spots as the rest of my forums

I hate Illinois with a passion. I'd move to Texas in a heartbeat.

My hate for Illinois would be minimized with more frequent trips down south to ride during the crappy months.

Illinois is good for being a central hub for places to ride. 6-12 hours drive in any direction gets you to some real primo riding.

We can't carry guns here. Our roads suck. All our politicians are in prison. Our taxes are high. Our schools suck. Our weather blows. Moose lives here.

In conclusion. Just move.

As someone who has lived in NYC and LA in addition to Chicago, I prefer here. We have our issues, but overall, my quality of life here is better than it was in either NYC or LA for the money I make.

All the nice things about being in a large metro area without the hassles of the density and cost of NYC, or the flakiness and cost (and lack of density) of LA. And to my taste, I prefer dealing with mid-westerners. More direct, less BS than what I've experienced in the other places.

TRUE -- best jumping off point available (at the moment)....sadly, the first hour is the WORST hour ---trying to get out of the SLOG will take you an hour in any direction and exacts a .....TOLL (figurative AND literal)

>>>> All our politicians are in prison

NOT TRUE. Please don't generalize. Some are only under indictment while others are free.......awaiting sentencing..., and yet others have made parole. ....I see the potential for a POLL -- "WHO'S OUR NEXT POL TO GO TO DA BIG HOUSE??"
