That sounds picturesque I'll have the camera on me. I might head up there from Kaneman's gathering Sunday.

Hmmm.... new bike ride theme this summer: The Hunt for Ice Cream. Episode One: Denton's Finest.

Sorry you hurt your knee. Hope it gets to feeling better. According to the weather forecast, we might need pontoons on our bikes tomorrow.

I'm not too confident in the weather forecasts these days and since it's on the way home for me, I'll be there rain or shine.

Give me a call Sunday morning and we'll see what's cooking. I can meet you somewhere along I-35. I'll be up that way anyway (Kaneman's place). We can kick off Summer 2007 Hunt for Ice Cream
(and courthouses!

Friday Night: Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly between 7pm and 1am. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 70. South southeast wind between 5 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Saturday: Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 1pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 86. South southeast wind around 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Saturday Night: Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly before 7pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 69. East southeast wind around 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Sunday Night: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 7pm. Partly cloudy, with a low around 72. South southeast wind between 10 and 15 mph.

Looks like it will be wet Friday night. No problem, though. I've found Friday night ice cream to be good for my mental health. Saturday I'll be replacing T-dubs triple tree bearings with a set of tapered roller bearings. Sunday looks almost decent. May I ride with you?

It's an open invite.

I was sprinkled on the morning of the last two days, and beat the storm this am with lightening in my rear mirrors. I don't think it will bother me much tomorrow (providing my knee is okay; otherwise I may have to cage it, but then..... )

Maybe we should change the title to just "Friday Night Ice Cream Bikes, 7:15 pm" ? No date associated, then we can post date and place as we approach Friday.

Same here these last two days with the rain. Little sprinkles on both rides in and out.

Remind me to show you the knee gaurds I wear to protect my shins and knee caps. I find that following rock trucks makes for some intersting UFO's. Been pinged more than once. Wise County Survival tools. The guys at work make fun of me every morning as I remove them for work. I tell them to follow me home then tell me if I'm a little excentric about my knee gaurds. Having broken one of my knee caps on a city bump on my crotch rocket made me leary of hitting it again.

See ya'll tomorrow.

Two:
1. tonight at the Burger Box on Glenview in Richland Hills, 7:15
2. possibily Denton on Sunday, specifics forthcoming.
I'll be out of cyber space Sat night so I need a contact phone number to check in on the meet up for Sunday.

This was more than a 'ping'. More like a flying asteroid. I'm relieved that my knee wasn't smashed. The padding in my overpants reduced the impact.
I'm interested in the knee guards.

(And now that I have a baby KLR, can I join your tech days? I already have a list of things to do (jetting first). )

Janet, here is the map for Burger Box (address is 7700 Glenview, fudged to get the arrow in the right place - a Denton Don trick).

It is on the SE corner of Glenview (west extension of Pipeline) and Booth-Calloway.

Might be hard for pictures tonight - "rain and lots of it" was just on the radio this morning...

Re: Friday Night Ice Cream Bikes, 7:15 PM

Forecast for this evening is "strong storms" so I guess rain gear will be necessary.

I left home: dry.
Downpour in Lake Worth: donned rain gear, gloves, turned on heated grips.
Station: dry.
Dallas: sunny, cooked in rain gear.

We shall persevere.
See y'all tonight.

Thanks y'all. I was kind of brain dead when I got in yesterday and couldn't get all the sugestions sorted out.
