Take a beautifully thriving city, add a motorcycle, and you get one great experience. This route uses some of the expressway system in downtown Chicago. DOn't let that little drawback keep you from experiencing a fantastic city! Take in the breathtaking views of Lake Michigan, enjoy the bustle of Northwestern University, or the towering Chicago skyline. Don't bother to pack a lunch. There are literally thousands of dining choices. Saddle up and experience the sight, sounds, and flavors of Chicago!

Chicago is great city to visit for the food and entertainment, and parts of the lakefront are beautiful. But I wouldn't put riding your scoot in the city high on that list, as the roadways are not always in great repair and the traffic is miserable.
