Jeremy from Chicago

I hope to meet some local riders on some future group scooter rides.

I'm going to try to make the Slaughterhouse rally next month, Viva la Lake Geneva and Scootoberfest this year. Probably won't make them all.

I just picked up my Honda PCX150 the other day. I've had several scooters before, ranging from a 50cc Honda Metropolitan to a 600cc Silverwing. Also had a Genuine Buddy 125 and a Suzuki Burgman 400. I had about 7 motorcycles too, from a 250 up to a 1300.

I'm re-entering riding. Tried to hang it up when I had a family, but I feel so trapped when I can't ride.

Nicky Hayden being killed on a bicycle in Italy really woke me up to the fact that cycling is probably just as dangerous these days, with people not paying attention as they drive. At least on a scooter, I can keep up with traffic.

Welcome back to riding! I agree about road bikes being dangerous, and I have quit riding them and got a 26" bmx bike instead.

Welcome to the forum. Nothing like Chicago in the summer.
