Cubs, Bulls, White Sox, Blackhawks and Bears fans in Illinois who ride motorcycles have another way to show dedication to their teams.

Gov Pat Quinn on Thursday signed a bill into law which allows motorcycle plates to sport the logos of selected professional teams.

"I am proud to make these license plates available to motorcycle enthusiasts as a means of showing team spirit and further supporting education across the state," Secretary of State Jesse White said in a release. "With over 350,000 motorcycles registered in Illinois today, I am confident this new law will generate much needed revenue to further support public schools."

A portion of the registration fee for each of the team plates -- $25 -- is set to go to the Professional Sports Teams Education Fund. Proceeds are to go to the Common School Fund, according to White's office.

Motorcycle riders will be able to order the plates on CyberDriveIllinois.com beginning Aug. 24, according to White's office.

The bill is SB3555.
