Hello from Chicago

Hi all.

Jumping over here from the FB forum.  I'm 'Scott Richard' on the FB Groups (not my real name).

Based in Chicago area and have an '18 Venice (since last August).

Organizing some local drives/get togethers for Chicago folks.

Hello 'Scott Richard' Welcome to the forums! I'd like to offer the ability to organize local drives and meetups via a dedicated section on the forum. I'm not sure whether it will go inside the regional category or have its own though, but keep an eye out for it soon.

R u a Blackhawk fan?

I’m from Chicago area as well; far north suburbs.

Interested in knowing if there are manny VanderHall owners in the area; recently I took delivery of Venice Speedster from imotorsports in Arlington Heights.

Only one person I met at a charity car show had ever seen a Vanderhall before.


Yes. Huge Hawks fan! 3 kids that play travel hockey!

I believe there are 20 or so in the Chicago area. We've done a couple of spirited drives and the most I've been able to get is 3 of us.

Check out the FB pages for posts on drives/etc.



Glad to make your acquaintance. I am also a Hockey and Blackhawk fan. Played creek hockey when young and my daughter played AAA with several teams but won a National with the Chicago Mission. I was a strength and conditioning coach and served as team trainer for some of her teams.

I am not on FB, but I can look for events there if you give me link to check periodically. I have 2019 Speedster # 98. Am still making it my own and have put about 2000 miles on it in about three weeks of ownership.

Hope to meet you one day. imotorsports in Arlington Heights is my dealer and they “host” Indian MC riders group rides on weekends; have the others Venice owners come from there/ have you ever considered starting rides from there?

Fall is my favorite riding time. I would be pleased to ride some Wisconsin alphabet roads with a group.



Guys - great to see some migration from FB. I don't do social media so I have to lurk using my wife's site (and so i don't post since it is her FB account). I find FB to be less than ideal for tracking user experiences and sharing useful information. Glad to have this site and hope more come over....can you spread the word?
