Hey, It's happening this weekend! Check out Ton Up Club Chicago's website. Tonite was the pig roast at Ace Motorcycle & Scooters and tomorrow is the big deal! Head to any Triumph dealer and join in their already organized ride to Lincoln Park for the beginning of the festivities. Ride to Delilah's on Lincoln for the Vintage Motorcycle & Scooter Show--18 categories--ten bucks to enter.

At five is the Mods & Rockers TT Run to the Bottom Lounge at 1375 W. Lake Street. Fish & chips there and Battle of the Bands next.

Let's hope the rain stays away.

Mods vs. Rockers--Chicago

Yeah! It was a cool event! Ton Up Chicago and the other sponsors did it right this time! What a huge group of cool characters! I rode down with Windy City RATs from Villa Park, right down North Ave, through Peurto Rico Independence Day Celebrations in Humboldt Park..."Just keep waving... and smiling!" No problems and lots of fun.

What great weather! What great people! Hey, if anyone is riding into the city, or visiting Chicago for any reason, stop in to say hello (and buy something) at Ace Scooters & Motorcycles, Motoworks Triumph, Delilah's and their neighbors on Lincoln Ave. Great groups of people, all with the right attitude!

I only wish I could have spent more time, like Friday night at the pig roast at Ace, and later Saturday night at Delilah's and then late night at The Bottom Lounge!

Had to leave and stop at Booby's on Milwaukee for the Skirt Steak Sandwich (to write home about). Hope to catch you guys at the next big gig!

Peace,:cool:

Yep. Was a blast. Only had a chance to go on Sat for a couple hours, but was a lot of fun. Some really awesome rides there. Seemed like a lot more people came this year than last. Had to park past that 7-11. Probably walked by a couple of you cats there. Good times!

Breakfast Ride Saturday Morning?

Mods vs. Rockers was awesome! Love this event. Will be back next year.

On a slightly diff note, I am trying to get a ride together Saturday morning. It's supposed to be 70 and sunny, perfect for riding. Meet at 8am at MCC in Villa Park. Kickstands up at 8.30 and ride the 35 to 40 minutes west to Galena or St. Charles for breakfast. (always must mention food to get some folks motivated!)
Then we can head south or north along the river...

I can only be gone for a couple hours so this is pretty good.

I'd love to join ya for one of these rides! I'll actually be riding to Mt. Prospect late tonight. GF has some "surprise" in store for me so I think Sat might not work out. I actually just joined the Windy City Rats group on FB last week, so I'll glance over every once in awhile there to see if any rides are coming up.

Galena and St. Charles are pretty good areas for a ride though. Enjoy!

My schedule is a little tight for that week so I might be flying in.

I will be there for the Friday pre-party at Ace cycle/scooter. I've found thats a bit more fun than the big event.
