An area in central Illinois that has the area code 217. There is more to Illinois than Chicago, and it's better. One day Chicago will break off and sink into Lake Michigan and the people will rejoice.
(Conversion in a different state that Illinois)
Random person: So where are you from?
Illinois resident: Illinois.
RP: O Chicago?
IL R: Hell no fuck Chicago. I'm from the 217.
*Illinois resident then round house the person like Chuck Norris would*
The greatest motorcycle frame ever designed. Devoloped and used by Harley for years. More custom and aftermarket versions than any other. Used by Jesse James, OCC, and about every custom builder you have seen on TV. Has the appearance of a rigid or hard tail but the comfort of suspension.
"I was looking at getting a Wide Glide but I had to get the Softail."
