For any of you who are in, or near the Joliet area, give me a call and we'll do some riding. You can reach me anytime at 937-620-2141. Jim

I live a little over an hour south but work at Mobil in Channahon. The bike will be back together in the next couple of weeks and I'll definitely be ready to ride. These intermittent nice says have been killing me! Where do you live?

I live in Joliet. Do you know Tim (mobilrider06)? I believe he works at Mobil too. I've been in touch with him a few times and we may be going for a ride Firday. What are you doing to your scoot that's got it apart? How far from Joliet is Channahon?

Channahon is the actual address of the refinery. Its just south of Joliet.

yes I work with Tim. He's a good guy.

I have the front end apart to black out the forks, trees and calipers and to replace the wheel. It was bent last fall. I'm waiting on the wheel to get here then have to black it out and get the tire mounted. I work every day until next Tuesday so I'm hoping to have it done for my weekend off the following weekend.

We'll all definitely have to get together and ride. I'll keep in touch.

Dave.

Sounds good. I'm gonna give grampi a shout tomorrow and see if he wants to ride....he works close to my house. Hopefully its warm enough for him to ride to work. And maybe he can give me a tour of his work.....:bigthumbsup: I just finished an 8 day trip, so I'm riding tomorrow for sure. If anyone would like to meet up, just send a pm or a text (847)312-6867.

I'm taking the night off from the Hawks.....they are making my blood pressure go through the roof. :edit:

Hey guys

Been on the forum for a little over a year, but just purchased my 9. I will be picking it up across the border of IN on 04/17/10. Live down in the Peoria area so riding up to Joliet (two uncles and two cousins live in Joliet and Naperville) is a road I traveled often.

djohansen, I agree, the last couple of day have been killer. what is worse is one of my co-workers has been parking his Harley just below my window and goes out there on his break just to start it up. Oh how I hate him!

Anyway, look forward to getting my 9 and getting to know some of you first hand.

Sorry guys, got called in to fly today. Did get to ride to the hangar last night though.

Grampi, it was good to meet you. Hope you get some riding in with some of the other guys today. Hopefully we can head west next time, maybe towards Starved Rock.

See you guys soon.

Good to meet you too Dan! I'll see if I can have the forecasters order us up some decent weather for next week. Right now they're calling for rain every day :-\

I am interested for both events. Depending on my schedule, may be my only hang-up. Keep me posted.
the earlier the better on the 17th if you wanna get some runs in. i'll be out there when the gates open.

as far as the starved rock run.... sundays usually works good for me. can't remember the place in utica... little pub on the corner on the main drag... has pretty good burgers.

Hey guys I am from Lockport. Can you let me know when you guys go out?
Tigz (Arnie) and I are going for a ride this afternoon, and djohansen77 (Dave), mobilrider06 (Tim), and I are going Monday afternoon. Give me a call if you're interested in going either day.
