I’m home to pick up the iPod speakers and some Jolly Ranchers… it was a rough night, Tracie’s on an epidural now and we’re expecting delivery this evening or early Wednesday. Everything’s going OK. I’ll try to make some more calls when I get back. Thanks for the support, it’s all pretty exciting.
It’s go-time. Please don’t call us yet, it’ll still be a day or so. More info to come.
Don’t forget that the Chicagoland Toys for Tots Motorcycle Parade is Sunday, December 7th. Groups leave in waves from 83rd and Western starting at 9:30 am, and the ride ends at the Marine Center at Foster and Troy. Scooterists usually meet somewhere before riding to the start, we’ll post a meeting place soon.
In another example of how the British motorcycle industry kicks the American motorcycle industryâ€™s ass, Honda UK is offering â€œlicense classesâ€? for 5-11-year olds at local bike shows. The licenses arenâ€™t valid, of course, but the program delivers a message about safety and responsibility to british kids (along with Hondaâ€™s sales message) at an age when their American counterparts are riding dirt bikes without helmets on their uncle’s farm.
