Hello John, sounds like a great idea!

Only problem I have is my RG is currently in northern Wisconsin until late June.

I'd like to get together with some forum members after I ride my bike back south, but won't be until July or later in the summer.

On another note, are you planning on going to SWII? I'm heading across the state and hope to ride with some other SharkNoses.

I know there's more of us northern Ill riders on this site, but they may not be too active or have seen you posting.

I know SGT_Rob(won the recent RG of the month thingy) lives in Chicago, but he is currently on a cycle trip out west.

Ok guys, I spend some time in northern Wisconsin as mentioned before, and occasionally get razzed for being a "FIB" or "flatlander" from Illinois...its normally all in jest. Once I took 2 much younger co-workers up to my cabin for a snowmobiling weekend, and of course we visited numerous local watering holes.

Once when the cheeseheads were razzing us good, one workmate spouts out the below saying (he learned while at SIU). I almost fell off my seat LMAO as those northwood bar patrons clapped and laughed. Many said they had never met such a ballsy guy from from Illinois...we even got a round of beers bought for us...just for his saying.

So maybe us Illinoisan RGers can use this saying when we get together:

We’z the boys from IllinoiZ
We come from hills and ditches
We drag our d!cks cross jagged rocks
We’re mean son-za-bitches

Sounds great to me as your part of the "greater Chicagoland metroplex". I grew up in Lansing, IL and worked in Hammond for many years.

Now I just have to get my RG back south...its killin' me!
