This Sunday, (December 5th), The Chicago Toys for Tots ride will be in full swing. It is estimated that 30-40,000 cycles will be there.

Is there anyone else from the Chicago Area that is planning to ride in the TFT? It would be nice to see more than one Burgie in the parade! :lol:

Update from Ride

Well, I did the Toys for Tots Motorcycle Parade. It was amazing!

It was estimated that there were 60,000 motorcycles in the parade.

With my walk around waiting to start and the end, the only Burgman that I saw was mine! I saw 2 other scooters, a Yamaha Zuma and a Vespa.

I had many questions/comments on the Burgman. Most people would look at it and say, "that isn't a scooter, that's a cycle".

One other person told me that the Burgman is a great ride, that he rode one once to Wisconsin, and that he is a Goldwing rider!

It was a great feeling to participate in this parade. What was most emotional was a sign that someone was holding on the street. It said, "Thank God for the children, Thank God for the bikers."

Toys for Tots.....

Hi,
We had a Southern Cruisers Bike-In, Saturday, to support the Toys for Tots and it was great fun. We had about 600 motorcycles show up for the "Motorcycle Parade" from our local Toyota dealer to our local Ron Ayers Motorsports. This was my first group event and I had the only scooter there. We spent about an hour cruising through the county after loading the Marine Corps truck with toys. We finally ended up at Ron Ayers where a social was held. My 400 performed flawlessly, and held its own every step of the way. One of motorcycle guys wanted to know how I handled the speed changes. I must admit that I rode the brakes a lot at the beginning of the ride but later on I depended totally on the throttle. We had police escorts so it was feet up all the way. The weather was excellent at 50+ degrees.... :p
