    Oak Park IL Saturday

    Saw a black MM headed north on Harlem Ave Saturday afternoon. Haven't seen one around the Chicago area all winter.

    I've been daily driving my '03 Marauder this winter when there hasn't been ice and snow on the roads a little further south in Central Illinois. I even took it out one morning during a sub-zero polar vortex day. Though the heater fought to produce anything but cold air during my drive to work, the car ran just fine.

    One morning I saw another black Marauder driving in the opposite direction in northern Peoria. I haven't seen one in these parts since buying mine last summer. I think I creaked my neck snapping it to look back. It crossed my mind to turn around and run him down, but then though, "What are you going to say to the guy once you chase him into a parking lot." So, I let it go and haven't seen him since. Makes me wish I knew more Marauder owners around Central Illinois. Oh well.

    I took mine to St Louis in late fall so that could have been me. But for the most part mine has been in hibernation. I tried to take it to a meeting this morning as I knew it would be a nice day. Couldn't get it out of the garage - too much ice on the apron just spun the wheels.
