We cut our teeth ten years ago on fixing bikes, and since then we’ve expanded to include selling new and used motorcycles and scooters and all the gear and accessories that go along with them. Yet our favorite part of doing business here in Chicago is being connected to the community and putting on the good times.

We’ve been looking at our calendars for 2015 and it’s going to be year full of awesome! Where last year took us from one end of North America to the other, this year is about adventures closer to home. For example, we’re doing a lot more road racing this year with AHRMA, and putting on not one but two Motoworks Track Days this year. We’ll see three new models from Ducati showcased at the shop in just a few weeks. The IMS and Mama Tried will help us get through the coldest parts of winter. Yet it’s summer where the action really heats up. June is jam packed, for example.

Below is a starting list for events for 2015. Some of them are our events, some of them are events we’re planning to attend, and others are events being put on by people we like. Take a look and mark your calendars. For the latest information on specific events however, be sure to plug in on our Facebook page. We’ll be creating events and sharing details there, some of which will require tickets or registration, so keep an eye out for that. Also, there are standing events like Moto Mondays at Five Star Bar and Pints & Pistons at the Holiday Club. We’ll share those events out as details get shared out in the new year. In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of the year to come so far:
