AMA Efforts Overturn Chicago Bike Ban

A city I live by banned motorcycles in their parades after a couple of incidents where the riders couldn't control their bikes at slow speeds and ended up running into the crowd.

Does anyone know why Chicago banned them?

...I believe this is the second victory for the AMA in Chicago (though it may have been abate?)... Either way, after Mayor Daley did a midnight tear up of Meigs field along the lakefront, he then set his sights on motorcycles and banned them from using Lake Shore Drive. As I understand, it didn't last too long and LSD was re-oppened to motorcyclists.
