John F. led the group of eight bike through the NW suburbs ultimately following a scenic route along the Fox River through Geneva, Batavia and St Charles. Ultimately ending up in Elburn, Il. for lunch at Schmidt’s. It happened that the Rolling Thunder riding group was just getting organized for their planned Poker Run. About 50 bikes were already on site when we arrived with more on the way.
The 2018 Ride to Remember (R2R) was held in Cleveland, Ohio, June 21-23, and supported the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage (http://www.maltzmuseum.org/).
The event began with a Thursday Meet ‘n Greet at the Westin Hotel in downtown Cleveland (our host hotel).
The main event, the Ride to Remember, took place on Friday morning and culminated with presentations and tours at the Maltz Museum.
On Saturday, the JMA host club, The Shul Boys, organized a variety of motorcycle tours of the Cleveland countryside; and a farewell dinner was held Saturday night at the famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the Cleveland lakefront.
This year the collective clubs from around the world donated $78,500 to the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
When we change to Daylight Savings Time our breakfast meeting time stay at 8:30 am. We gather every Sunday 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. Our orders are placed with the wait staff by 8:45 am so we can make sure a time departure for our rides. During the riding season it’s kickstands up at 9:30 am for the 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.

Our trip to the Ozarks began with a Saturday ride down Route 66 from Chicago to St. Louis. There was a threat of rain off and on during the day, but nothing substantial ever materialized. On our first night we celebrated Shelly Brostoff’s birthday.
After a somewhat late start because of a flat tire (and it being a Sunday with all the shops closed) we headed out with the disabled bike secured on a rental trailer. Scarcely 30 minute later we were in the middle of a deluge and had to seek shelter at a weigh station.
An hour later the weather cleared and we made our way to Eureka Springs, AR where we spent three days touring the area with a local guide who knew all the roads, scenic stops, and places to eat.
Our return was via Branson, MO where we took in a show.
The next morning it was off to Hannibal, MO where we arrived in time to take in several of the Mark Twain historical sites and had dinner while cruising on a Mississippi River Boat.
The final day was split between a scenic ride along the Illinois River and a mad dash on the interstate back to Chicago.
All in all six nights and seven days riding some of the best roads in the midwest.
