In an effort to compliment the forum and ensure future Chicagoland Forum member events are communicated to EVERY Chicago area member, I'm putting together a group email list. Sometimes people miss posts, however, they're less likely to miss an accompanying email too. Based on how much fun we've had during prior and recent get togethers, I'm looking forward to future events and want to make sure all who want invites get them.

Other reasons to use the email list:
    If you need a hand working on your bike, chances are someone on the list has done what you're doing and is willing to lend a hand or give some helpful advice. Send out a quick shout out.

    You decide to ride when you get home from work and want to see if anyone else feels like riding. Again, send a breif shout out via email.


If you would like to be on the list AND you don't mind me sharing your email address with other Chicago forum members on that list, PM me with your email address.


EDIT: As of August 1, 2009, the following are part of the Chicago area members group email list:

0Face, airboss, AFCJER, artistic rider, Big Mar, bjf, blitzer, Breadman, Brooklyn, burnergold2B, cougar8000, daveh, Dave Kaye, Designer, evilmedic13, eworth,FJRski_2007,flysaab, griff, grnarrowe, GypsyCaravan, huk finn, joeR6, Jon, lrr308, misalot, Murph, qkslver, rnees, RiderCoach Lar, Roadrider, RRA, Scotch,scubabiker, Sherman, skifrik, SlowRunner, Stewart, TriggerT, TRYP, Turvy, usedtobeharley, valetz, VFR Rider, wanderlust, wheatonFJR, wheeldeal72 & Yamaduke

larry, do you have anyone on list from lake kilarney ( which is between cary and crystal lake illinois)?
Last summer on a friday evening , about 5 ish P.M. , I past a maroon fjr, on crystal lake avenue. I waved, after he passed (opposite directions), he was honking ( he must have just noticed I was an fjr while passing).
Always wondered who that was,,,, never saw any listing or balloon from that area, maybe you have it from group email list.
If that person's reading this & trying to remember, I have a '06 blue bike, blue helmet & jacket. Passed about 1/2 mile east of route 31 (fairly close to 31 & 176)
.

I have seen quite a few Chicagoland and Northern Illinois FJRs and have had several chances to speak with the owners who I have learned to be lurkers on this site....they watch for useful info but don't communicate or participate. Alas, the email list is not all inclusive.

For this reason, I'm considering putting the FJRForum sticker on my windshield (sort of like the popular "AdvRider" stickers identifying fans/partipants of Adventure Rider).

Closest thing to good twisties is SW WI or Galena...so you'd REALLY have to ride. But if somebody puts a parade around Chicago area...I guess that might be doable.:)

After I get back from a weeklong trip with wifey to KY, VA, WV, and OH...I probably post an invite in the midwest section to an all day Saturday or Sunday ride to SW WI. We haven't done one for awhile...
