Chicago motorsport store?

I'm visiting my parents in the NW suburbs and was hoping to go to a motorsports store to look at helmets and shoes. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Here's one you can try. http://www.northstarmotorsports.com/ in Barrington, IL
They have a small showroom with a few items. I don't know how much they stock. I got some Red Line oil there.

Thanks for the recommendation Al. Unforetunately, I realized it was after hours on the way there. Found some Piloti's at woodfield though.

Good job, I love my Piloti's. I got them at about 1/4 of new price. Now that I have worn them, I'd be willing to pay full price. I think you need to have a medium to narrow foot for them to be comfortable.

I do have narrow feet. They were at finishline and there was a pair for 40 on the sale rack. I asked to see those and when the guy brought them out he said they were marked for sale by accident so they were 85. Ended up with a tamburello pair for regular price.
