I just got back from the Carribian and I will be picking up my Monster from MCC for the 6000 mile check up. And I missed the chicago area ride I think.

play on playa! we didn't ride too much, it was FREEZING in the afternoon! we just rode around the winnetka/evanston area for a bit, nothing spectacular. this weekend looks like the weather will be near 70! shall we plan a longer ride in less-traffic areas?

Definitely a good time... Thanks Ruben and Ron for coming out. I wont have a new pair of gloves by then. I say we meet up Sunday morning around 11 (If possible) and ride. It took me about 20 minutes to thaw when I got home... Maybe next time I shouldn't race an M3 on a 55 degree day.

Regarding Octber 4th...

I have a party/cookout we can raid for free food and drinks in Grayslake. It's on Westerfield off of 120 west. It's my ex-boss who's throwing this gig and I OK'd it with her already. She's cool. We can all met at one place and go from there.Since we got cats from the city rolling, I'm thinking we can meet on 41 somewhere around Noon and roll on up. The season is changing so we gotta get things rolling, you know? I'm trying to get mad monsters together and raid this neighborhood. TDADDY know's the roads up north so he'll be the map quester in the area. Of course we should hit the city and represent on those Jap bikes that seem to be all over and let them know what's really going on. What it be like y'all? y'all ready?

Jason, we can hook up Sunday too. It's all good. I was trying to keep up with you on the way back but traffic was killing me dog. I broke out the battery operated gloves today 'cause it was colder than a muh this morning. Hey, your rear tire was a 180 right? HOLLA!

That was a good ride home, traffic sucked though. I was splitting lanes left and right. My rear tire is the stock 180, now that I know I can fit a 190.....

As long as the weather is favorable I'm definitely in for a Sunday ride.

That 180 is tight though! When we were hitting the twisties I kept watching your rear tire and it looked like a wide bulldog! I gotta get a wider tire now. Found out about the Ducati school. Too bad it is in Florida! Yeah right! It's give me more reason to go down there.

TDADDY. What's up with that other flick with the three weird ass kids?

For the Ducati school do you have to bring your own bike? Either way, could be a fun future trip.

My old bike had a 160. While it sounds shallow, I wasn't going to purchase a bike that had anything less than a 180. Anyone who tells you size doesn't matter.... they're FOS.

We have to put something together for sunday too. Although, right now weather.com is saying 56 degrees for Saturday and Sunday. I'm definitely in for a ride if the air temperature passes 60 on Sunday.

I'll ride Sunday if it's 40 degrees. I learned how to ride and taught myself in January through March on my dual sport. I just like riding man!

TDADDY, the 50 year old's got their own agenda. Mine is to get us some free food and a pit stop. Catch a love jones if you want dog! :D

Didn't get the tire yet. Had some business to take care of. Will get it soon though.

I'm calling Florida now about the school. It seems like a residency program. 40 hours a week, 8-4:30 PM, 20 weeks. Will get more info shortly.

Oh wait, you're not talking about the riding school you're talking about mechanic school. I want to find a Ducati riding school, do they offer anything like that around Chicago?
