Chicago Motorcycle Show Feb 7-9

Recommended Posts

JJ and I are planning on going. We're leaving Friday afternoon (around 2:30-3) and returning probably Saturday night.

I may have Yousef and Michele too but not sure at the moment.

Please post up if you would like to go. We can figure out cars, meetings spots...etc.

We will stay Friday night at the Comfort Suites O'Hare

I seriously considered the Show.But I guess not this year.

The underling reason is I'll will have Platelet Rich Plasma treatment to both knees this week performed by Blue Tail Medical and the show is done the road. I'm instructed to gradually return to normal activity.  

Physical exercise and walking will hopefully regenerate the tissue.

I WILL BE READY TO RIDE,weather permitting.

Good luck with the treatment.

You know what.  I should probably go since I'm shopping these new airbag jackets.  Count me in.  If I'm not too late.

Definitely not late. We have two rooms. You can PM Terry if you guys want to share one. JJ is driving so we need to figure out pick up sequence also.

I was able to get a room for myself.

 

I live just south of the St Charles Convention Center/Embassy Suites off I-70 just before the MO River.

I asked JJ to PM you for address and discuss pick up since he's driving

Let us know. Actually, if I have the camper back we can take that and ride altogether if you want to join us on the ride up. It's currently at Beyerly for some recalls.

If that works out fine... otherwise I'll get myself there. No Problem. I switched my hotel to where you are staying but if the camper don't work out... NP... thx.

But HP and Torque?

And the 3 cylinder sounds so good :) I have not even changed the exhaust.

The smoothness of the inline 4 is what attracts me. I've ridden both and the smooth operation without much of a noticeable difference in performance plus the taller stance and comfy seat are attractive.

It looks like I can pick up the camper Saturday morning so we should be good to go 👍.

How early can or does everyone want to head out on the trip?

I've been considering taking all of Friday off so we can head out earlier.

Right now I'm planning on taking a half day off but, if you all want to leave earlier I'll take the whole day and we can head out in the morning.

Fridays are a normal day off for me, so I'm up for just about anything.
