I hope all goes well and you get the gig. From where are you coming? I find Chicago a great place to work and live.
I'm sidelined from work for a while with a newborn at home. However I'm sure someone from the community would be more than happy to meet up with you. Best of luck!
Was headhunted this week for an executive position in Chicago. Haven’t interviewed yet. A big plus for me will be making moto friends, upping my off-road skills, and even gaining professional “contacts” through the riding network—since I’d be new to Chicago and the job would be freaking demanding. Work sleep ride repeat!
I’m a woman so I hope you’ll laugh or at least smile when I ask—are there any other suits out there who think it’s a good idea for me to take this job???? How often do rides tend to happen? Where is the epicenter of the club activity? Do people socialize afterwords? Howbout grabbing a drink when I get an interview date? Will be close to downtown Chicago.
I ride a '78 R80/7 and just joined CRBMW, as well as the ABC. I moved to Chicago a few years ago, and retrieved my ride from NY last summer - my first one off in 10 years! Since then I've been getting my "stuff" together, joining the MOA and attending my
in July. I eventually made my way from the Airheads tent to the CRBMW tent during the closing ceremony and talked to a nice guy there, even though he wasn't riding a BMW...
Anywho, I hope to meet some of you at the Evanston Motorcycle Classic!
