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?

That sounds like typical bureaucratic thinking. I suppose if a horse bolts into the crowd becasue the rider "can't control" the beast we should ban all horses, too.

Maybe it was becasue Harleys can't go that slow for that long without overheating and breaking down - sorry just had to.
