A little off topic, but are there any good cruising spots in Chicago? I'll be out there in a few hours. If the weather is decent I'd like to see what the Chicago scene is like. Feel free to PM me if its not something you'd like posted.

I saw two on my Saturday morning commute. The first was an IOM G8 west bound on Rt 52 in Joliet in front of the airport. The other was a SBM G8 coming down the hill on Rt52 in Shorewood.

About 3:30 yesterday afternoon spotted a PBM heading north on Randall Rd near Bowes Rd. Looked like a GT running V6 taillights and HID's.

A WH G8 just went by, west bound on Caton Farm Rd @ County Line. I'm out on the deck watching the storms blow all around

I was followed by two women in an IOM G8 tonight on Infantry Drive on Joliet's west side.

Today has been a banner day for G8 sightings. First was early afternoon on County Line Rd far west side of Joliet where I spied a PBM G8 going northbound as I went southbound. I saw it at the last minute and gave a small wave. This evening I saw a WH G8 right off of Infantry in Joliet. Tonight while sitting on the deck I've seen two more WH G8s. First was about 7:25 PM west bound on Caton Farm Road, the other was just moments ago. It was another WH G8 but had tinted windows and was also going westbound.

I see a LRM G8 every day heading inbound on 90 as I'm heading outbound. I think I see the same one in the evening rush hour headed back out as I'm headed in.
