What’s Christmas without going out for Chinese food? A total of 18 ( a Chai) members and spouses converged on the Phoenix in Chinatown for a Christmas Day feast. We had to split up into two separate tables — there wasn’t a “Lazy Susan” big enough to accommodate the entire group, but it gave a minimum of at least two people to talk simultaneously.
Then there’s the food. everyone picked an entree we we all shared the bounty. Next year we are ordering the King Crab that the staff brings out live before steaming and serving.
When we change to Daylight Savings Time our breakfast meeting time returns to 8:00 am. Until then we gather every Sunday at 8:30am to meet, eat and socialize. Everyone is welcome. Jasper’s Cafe in Glenview is where we enjoy a full-menu breakfast and have time to socialize (and on occasion argue). Jasper’s is kind enough to accommodate our group in a separate dining area. During the riding season it’s kickstands up at 9:00 am for a group ride.
If you want to learn more about Jewish motorcycle riding or are thinking about joining the Chaiway Riders, then breakfast at Jasper’s is the best way to meet us and become a member. We do a lot more than just ride.

Hope to see you there!
As in previous years, on Labor Day weekend Sunday, we held our annual Club Picnic. Following our traditional Sunday breakfast/meetup at Panera Bread in Glenview, Ride Director Andy F. led the group over local roads and scenic byways to Union Pier, Michigan where Marty and spouse Andrea hosted a catered picnic at their summer home on Lake Michigan.
