Happy 4th of July everyone! This month’s motorcycle Monday brought out the American class of bikes. Many Harley Davidson’s and a few Indians motorcycles. The evening featured a bike off of two fine vintage cycles. Like a fine wines waiting to be tasted and appreciated all for your viewing pleasure. A 1950 Harley Davidson Pan Head vs. a 1948 Indian Chief. It’s a battle that has been going on as long as Ford vs. Chevy, as long as Red Sox […]

In the winter months of Chicago there’s not much riding to be done, so instead we fantasize and dream of that next adventure riding our cycles. In the meantime February always brings a breath of fresh air when we’re able to see the latest and greatest motorcycles at the International Motorcycle show. I always advise the newbies in the market that this is a great place to sit on a cycle and take a first look. After all that’s what […]

Sensory overload! From sight to smell to taste. All were in full swing this evening over at Chicago’s World of Chocolate. When I first walked in I noticed the delicious preparation by the feature artists in this world. Their feverishly scramble to get the visual right before opening to the public. It was an organized chaos in motion. All that was needed was some background music of the Marching of the Ants.
We had a great time over in the urban patio celebrating Casey’s 7th birthday and getting wet in the never ending squirt gun battle. Thanks for the invite friends. We’ll see you soon!

What a very fun evening with our favorite local group “Sones de Mexcio”. The zapateado was fresh and the music was tight. We danced in the warm summer breeze alongside the buildings and the trees of the fun busy streets of downtown Chicago. After all it is the summer and it was indeed a good time for dance. Thanks to Lorena, Rudy, Zacbe, Eric and the host with the most Juan. I needed to work out my legs and spin […]

They were great guys. And the hosts, well what can you say about them, great group of guys. I would like to thank the fellas over at Motoworks Chicago for hosting the Annual Track Day at Gingerman raceway. And especial […]
