Two Hot Dog Rides on July 25th!
Once again you have a choice of two destinations for our July 25th Hot Dog Ride!
To the north you'll find the Dogout, at 2567 Waukegan Road (corner of Waukegan Road--IL 43 and Half Day Road--IL 22), in the Bannockburn Green Shopping Center. This is a new one for us but it has lots of great reviews. Here's what it looks like in Google Street View: Dogout Street View.
Our southern destination is an old favorite: Johnny's Wee-Nee Wagon in Markham, at 15743 South Crawford (just west of I-57 and south of 159th Street--US 6).
As usual, you'll find maps in the "Events Calendar" area of this website.
Choose whichever you like: a long ride or a short one! Riders gather at either location between 6:30 and 7 p.m. As always, these rides are destination rides--ride there on your own, or get your own group together. See you there!
"Come out for the ride, come out for the food, just come on out!"®
TOTAL CONTROL Level Two
From Mark Wilson:
As I announced at our July meeting, Total Control is growing its offerings here in Chicagoland, and we will have our first Advanced Riding Clinic Level Two in Villa Park at MCC Motorcycle Center on Sunday, August 14th.
This is the first time in about 2 years it has been available nearby. Our club has more graduates from ARC Level One than probably any other organization in the area so I want to be sure the word gets out to all. It is a phenomenal next step in building riding skill for those who have experienced the first program.
Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic Level Two: WHAT TO EXPECT
The Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic, Level 2 starts where the Level 1 class left off. Included are more challenging exercises from the best-selling book Total Control--plus some exciting new ones that will allow students to take their riding to a whole new level. Hard braking with control, trail braking in corners, speed shifting, hazard avoidance in curves, decreasing radius turns, bike setup and more will be featured in this follow-up to the most effective advanced riding curriculum on the market.
People can get more information and register at TotalControlTraining.net and I am happy to answer any questions as well.
