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?

Re: Shriners & Cushmans

The Shriners on those damn Cushmans! They handle like a wheelbarrow full of bowling balls at slow speeds, and like Pierre LeVegh's 1955 LeMans crash in the 300SLR Merc, an out of control Cushman can take out hundreds of innocent spectators in one bloody swath. Like a scythe through wheat.

Minature fire trucks are next, and NO CLOWNS PLEASE.
