Motorcycle Parking Pouch

Parking pouches are available at our Monthly membership meetings held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.  You don’t have to be a member to attend or receive the pouch.  Although, if you have a motorcycle or scooter it would be in your best interest to stick around and see what we are all about.

Parking Pouches are also available at Harlem and Addison Auto, 7200 W Addison St, Chicago, IL 60634

Jimbo’s Law

OK, so it’s not an actual law, but that’s what we dubbed it.

Our Treasurer Jimbo received a parking ticket for parking in a residential permit parking zone without a permit.  After finding out he would have to go to court and contest the ticket, he called our President and told him his tale.  Pat told Jimbo not to worry because he had a meeting coming up with one of the Mayor’s aides.  The next day, Jim got a call from Dan Harper (our VP), asking him for the information that was on the ticket.   About an hour later, he informed Jimbo that the ticket was handled. He said that he would be getting a letter in the mail. Because of his situation they made the “Jimbo Law.” So, from now on, when a ticket is issued to a motorcycle for permit parking, the City’s computer will kick it out of the system. Than a letter will be mail to the bikes owner, telling them that they don’t need to take any action, and that the ticket has already been taken out of the system.
