Collecting My Harley and Riding into Chicago

What a beautiful hot sunny day. After a comfortable ride on the back of the fatboy, now it was my turn to collect my bike and the nerves and smiles were setting in. I just wanted to get on it and give it a go. I've never ridden a bike with ape hangers before so this was all new to me, the engine is 96 cubic inches and boy she is responsive on the throttle, this baby needed a gentle handling…

I set off leaving Gary behind talking to Ray our sales man to give her a quick blip, and Ray said “I hate watching people leave for the first time on bikes they've not ridden before, as this is usually when things go wrong, only a few weeks before someone bought the same bike as Tave and ploughed it through the fence!” Boy I'm glad he didn't tell me that! Departing into the busy Harlem Ave was not plain sailing and quite scary as all she wanted to do was play… ūüėČ Yikes she was going to have her fun with me, and she did…

5 minutes we set off to Chicago downtown. I was a little scared say the least as Chicago is known for opportunist drivers, and not for the faint hearted! So I was a little tense as I was not used to her yet, and all I wanted to do was leave the big “Chicago City”, the only thing it had going for it that day due to my concentration on learning to ride my new Harely, is that everything is on a grid system and it's fairly simple to get around. I'm glad to say that after a day of riding I was getting used to her and I'm really looking forward to setting off on our first leg of Route 66 tomorrow.

Gaz Returns With His Fatboy

After 3 weeks of waiting for our new Harley Davidson’s  the day finally arrives, Gary returning with his Fatboy with a smile on his face! The past hour I was patiently waiting for his return, every time I herd a bike I ran to the window and finally I was rewarded with my happy smiling babe.

Best Western and Down Town Naperville.

Since arriving here in the USA, we've have spent most of our time here in Naperville just outside the City of Chicago. We stopped at the Best Western Hotel. Its around $49 a night booked weekly for two, or $55 a night, with high speed internet, a gym, sauna and includes a continental breakfast.

Check out down town Naperville, which has many styles of shops and resturants, among the ones we recommend is Seventh Heaven, with cajun food, its excellent… they have great cocktails and specialized hot chili sauces which you can buy for gifts. “Ass Burning in Space” was there hottest chili sauce, but be warned its not for the faint hearted! There's a noodle bar, Steakhouse, Connies pizza, and a cracking Indian round the corner.. Naperville town itself is very pretty and has a beautifull river walk.

If you want a easy trip into Chicago, you can catch a train for $4.00 it takes around an hour.  I highly recommend Buget car hire, its about $200 for 3 days inc with all added insurance…

The Bean Chicago

The Amazing Bean at the Millennium Park. This thing was amazing, and was an awesome photo oportunity to take lots of photos, great fun being snap happy. We first saw the Bean on the 18th October 2006, and came back to Chicago city on the 23rd for another photo op and explore more of this amazing city. We both fell in love with the Chicago Vibe a great place to visit even in the Autumn. Hopefully we get our bikes soon so we cant ride out to the west to miss the Winter, because its going to get cold!
