Illinois roll call - Chicagoland

Chicagoland and cities nearby. It will start getting fairly warm February 13th, early spring this year. The weather is tolerable for the most part during the day (I know some of you won't ride until it's 50 deg) and will quickly drop at nightfall but it's still enough time get a good days worth of riding. Rain will fall around this time as well so we can say goodbye to the salt. For you enthusiasts who can't wait to get back on the bike, just 10 more days.

Post your location and let's meet up!

You got a some balls man! haha, don't get me wrong im fiend-ing like a crackhead to get on my bike, but there isnt a chance in hell I am during the month of february. There is soooo much salt on the road lol The temps dont bother me because I was still riding when it started hitting 35, but I wont mess with the salt and until snow is 'permanently' gone lol.

however, i'll be more then happy to ride with you or any others once it clears up a bit, I'm in the Tinleypark/Orlandpark area

I know Zoda rides with those guys, and I just joined their facebook group but have yet to meet any of them since it is still cold out. But I have plans to ride with Zoda once it warms up

If you're referring to me, then no. Don't know who Danny is.
