What we're about

It’s not what you ride...it’s THAT you ride!!
This group is to bring together those of us that love WIND THERAPY and enjoy the open road while meeting and networking with fellow bike enthusiasts. All bikes and experience levels are welcome.

Note: To become a member, you must know how to ride a motorcycle and own one.

We will typically meet up in Hoffman Estates and ride to a destination (or participate in charity rides). Sightsee along the way, socialize, and grab a bite before heading back. Whether it be a ride to a usual destination, or a route you have always wanted to try with others. Create your own event to host / lead, or, send me details and we will put on the calendar. You can also bring a friend to ride with, passenger or another biker. Please be aware / abide by all motor vehicle & motorcycle laws, and group riding hand signals, etc. We ride in staggered formation and safety of our members is high priority. Your membership serves as waiver and release of any and all liability with joining, participating, attending, or other actions related to this meetup group. You certify that you release and hold harmless this meetup group, all organizers, members and participants from all damage, negligence, in conjunction with activities related to this meetup group. You further accept that you may be released from the group without notice or cause.

This is a patch-free, drama-free easy going group. If you love to haul “arsh”, this group is probably not for you.
