Chicago area BMW dealer
I wasn't sure exactly where to post this request for help but I though this was a Chicago based thread so I'd try here.
I'm looking at a bike at South Suburban Suzuki BMW in Chicago Heights. Has anyone ever had any dealings with this dealer? Are they honest enough to buy a bike through the Internet without actually having seen the bike in person? Also, does anyone have any experience in actually purchasing one this way. I'm a bit apprehensive about sending a check to someone that I don't know anything about. How can I protect myself?

Show us a link to the dealer/bike. Maybe some member or friend of one can check it out for you.

I'm thinking about meeting at Full Moon on 41, having breakfast and KICKSTANDS UP at 9:00.
Mosey up to 50 in Wisconsin, find some Rustic Roads with lots of twisties, get up into the Kettle Moraine region about noon and be back home by 2:00.
Snowed yesterday in Pennsylvania - not many beautiful fall weekends left!

Chicago events in early december
I'm going to Chicago the first weekend in December. Are there any motorcycle related activites or sites I need to see while I'm in town? Also, do I need to look up any dealers or shops for a hat or tshirt? I was in NYC last year and went to the Ferrari dealership in Manhattan and picked up a hat that I proudly wear (since I can't afford to drive one!).
Thanks in advance

.....There's a great HD museum up the road in Milwaukee.
I'm sure my esteemed associates will have a raft of great ideas in early December here in Chicago. I, frankly, have none.
Wonderful city, just not very motorcycle centric in the winter.

How about this Sunday? Looking to get away.

8:30 Sunday at Full Moon?
Wait, I'm confused, which bike will you be showing up on? :
Southern Wisconsin and the Rustic Roads are beautiful this time of year.

Well....I just got rear ended by some b#tch in her mini van and she drove away. knocked me down and broke a bag and what ever else. Of course her plate was not registered. Sitting at the rt 68 east red light exit ramp northbound rt 53 for about 10 seconds and bam, I am on the pavement. lucky for me I was pointed to turn or she would have put me into traffic. Well I was lucky in the respect of injury. Had my armored jacket and chaps and fell to my left(good shoulder). Knee and hip are sore but the cheap insurance paid for this. I will still ride Sunday minus left side case(as it will not stay on). Really amazed me as she got out of her van to ask if I was OK and then drove off.

Seems to be a lot of this going around, wonder the status of her driving license? That often explains their quick departures.
I look forward to seeing you Sunday!
