NEED to ride

I'm from the windy also but I moved to Champaign about four years ago, enough of the boring crap. I should be in Chicago on Easter sun. if anyone will be out riding please let me know where I can meet up with you. also looking for any advice on banging second gear in the skyward postion, if you know how to do...then tell me allready. Also if anyone in the Champaign area wants to ride...all I can say is I'm always ready to go. You can contact me at [email protected]

ride it like you stole it...peace
