Well, yesterday's January's Nasty "Gathering" was a great VROC'ing
time. Even though the weather was extra nasty with temps hovering at 10 degrees
below zero with wind chills and black ice hiding, waiting for some fool, no one
was foolish enough to bring the bikes. We all ended up caging it, with many
families joining us, enjoying the day, for some fun conversation, BS'ing and
games. Word has it one "Tony" even took the challenge and drank the
Tabasco right out of the bottle on a bet. Way to go Tony!
Always good to get
together with this great and motley crowd called WCVROC, meeting the new
members, and reacquainting with the old. A special thanks to The Bulldog for
passing out personalized WCVROC beer steins to the grizzled ol' timers.

||I would like to thank everyone who came out to Dave & Busters on Sunday,
Jan. 23rd for the Second Annual Windy City VROC January Nasty Gathering / Run.
This year it was a "gathering" due to the severe cold and common sense
that kept us off the bikes. Between the black-ice and the biting cold, riding
would not have been a good idea. Unfortunately, I have forgotten some of the
newer members names that attended, but I will rattle off the members I do
t was great to see familiar faces like BlackChrome & Mustang
Sally, Wolfman & "2of8" Patsy, Ghost and his family, Slick,
George "The Prof." Roe, Slick, Earlybird, and Huge. It was great
meeting our newest members like Jonathan "Hawk" Lorig and Rev. If I've forgotten
anyone's name, please accept my apology and a beer the next time we meet.
talk, future plans and past stories were swapped along with the entertainment
provided by Dave & Busters. They even had HD video games there, but I doubt
that there were "authentic" because when I played there was no break
down's or oil under the game. <grin>.
| Once again, it was great seeing
everyone and hope to see everyone at the International Motorcycle Show in
February. Ride safe and try to stay warm... --
