    Isn't there like a big car meet out in Rockford every Sunday? Not talking just VW but just a shot load of cars. I wouldn't mind coming out to the VW scene though

    Really? 240z or 240sx? Before I knew anything about German cars I grew up on the Z car lol but yea that's why I haven't gone there. I have a problem with street racers and a problem with keeping my mouth shut. I was going to head out there this weekend though. I could meet up with the VW scene first.

    Eh all depends. Getting on a road where a ton of other passerby's are driving and then trying to race is idiotic. A nice abandoned straight away that no one is going to come down is always acceptable

    Why would you race a crotch rocket in the first place (Harley or a car)? You going to loose no matter what (unless motorcyclist doesnt know what he's doing). I ride sport bike btw.

    Yup that is the best thing about bikes in my mind cheap speed. I laid down 1000 for my old bike. Granted it was a great deal considering I sold it for $2200. But anyways for 1k I had a machine that did 0-60 in 3.6 seconds. I wasn't a really risky biker though. I ride just bc I love riding only hit 100 once lol

    Still it should be spanked by r1 on any conditions especially on a twisty road. Harleys are heavy, handle and brake like shit... They are nice and comfy cruisers though.

    I'm new to this whole VW club. I bought ny 2009 Jetta Wolfsburg about a month ago and am just in love with it. I've always had Silverado's and loved those, but the $100 a week in gas was killing me. So...anyways...Sunday nights at 7pm at Sonic on Riverside? Does anybody know if there is an actual VW club around here that isn't in Chicago? I was told by my wife to leave the car alone and just drive it....but that isn't working out too well for her. I'm just doing little cosmetic things right now waiting to see if it is worth it to mess with the Vag Com. Any ways...just thought I'd say hi. Hopefully I'll be able to make it out to Sonic some time.
