Well this week I saw an XX heading down 83 in Elk Grove Village/Woodale area. It was a black XX and I saw it during the week at about 1:00 in the afternoon.

The second spotting was yesterday afternoon in downtown West Dundee. It was black XX with a 4-2-1 exhaust.

I was wondering a similar thing the other day when I saw a Titanium 'bird heading south on randall rd. in south elgin. I've been thinking of trying to get all the Chicagoland 'birdies together for a lunch ride someday this season. Any takers, ideas? Not to thread jack here, but might be a good way to meet everybody in the area. Cheers.

To any and all above: YES! I've just gotten a chance to start discovering these bikes and am loving it already, but again, I'm still very new to it. I'd love a chance to check out some methods and mods other people have done (esp as far as hard luggage configurations) and get a chance to ride with some bikes that can keep up :) I would love the Wisconsin idea (assuming someone knows a good route not too close to milwaukee itself). Just let me know a date guys and I'll try and set it aside. My work is very flexible, just need to know in advance so I don't get booked that particular day.

Believe I'm booked on the 20th for a camping trip, but I'm open to anyone elses suggestions for just about anything in the future. I'm single, no obligations other than work, and as long as its 2-3 weeks out, I can black myself out on the schedule those days. I also wouldn't be opposed to meeting up during the week sometime, as I tend to work on weekends sometimes and then take off during the week.

Actually, on second thought, I'm actually camping IN lake geneva on that day, and since my friends are going to a Fish concert that day, I'd be good to take a ride with ya then too. Just let me know times and meeting spots. Hope to see as many XX's (and the modifications that have gone with them) as I can!

compuw22c you should post up an introduction thread and tell us a litte bit about yourself. Its a good way for people to get to know you a bit better. I'm in the windy city myself. Used to live in Mt. Prospect myself. Right by the train station.

So, was anyone else interested in this "Freedom run" on the 20th? If you could give me a location and a time I should be able to make it...

It sounds like me by time and location. No four into one. I've stock cans.
Yesterday I saw a Titanium CBRxx coming out of Crystal Towers on Busse and Algonguin. I've also seen a Blue XX in Sleepy Hollow while visiting my son in the Carrington subdivision just west of there. I live in Palatine and would like to meet for a ride some time.

bignoffo. Billypf's bike is blue and I think he's in sleepy hollow. I see that you have posted here before. If you haven't done an introduction thread you might want to consider doing that. Its a good way for you to tell us about yourself and for all us to give you a proper welcome. I'm in Chicago. Been trying to get out for a ride with the locals. XXNUTZ has been kind enough to post up some local rides so one day it just might happen.
