I only think of food when I hear "Chicago Style"


Im in this hobby for the nostalgia.  Most of my bikes are ongoing projects.
My day-to-day riding consists of commuting, bar-hopping and mountain biking.

Re: CHICAGO STYLE!!!!

Because early in life it was your first ride, lean forward and PIMP "Chicago Style"
Also it was also good for the phat a$$ girls to seat on instead of those stupid pegs. You want that booty in front all the time :lol:
