It's been good. Always tough to lose a good riding buddy, but you're going to love the NC curves! Keep in touch, and we will have to connect for my next trip to the dragon!

Let's Ride! Sunday, 1/31

OK... the weather looks really good for this coming weekend...

Looks like Saturday may be a bust for me, but how about a ride Sunday?

Noon start for a 4 hour ride? earlier start for a longer ride?

Who's in????

Hmmm.. what works for you?

Flying J meetup...830 or so? That would get the temps up closer to good.

I'll toss a couple or 3 routes on the tomtom and we'll see what works!

I can do 10. Was just tossing that out. I'm flexible! If that works, we'll see you at flying J at 10!

OK... I'm home. The ride went a bit strange as my GPS seems to have taken on a life of it's own for a bit in Cleveland... but I got that working and things went smoothly after that...

Stopped for lunch i Onalaska, and Noobles and his better half split off.. Great to get you out with us again, and it was great meeting your better half. She's a keeper, you know... Now, if I wasn't suffering from Old Timer's disease, names would come to mind... OH WELL!

Jim and I headed on to continue the route... but I figured it would be a good idea to top off first... The battery I have had to jump before rides a couple of times... failed me on restart after fueling... hmmm... At Jim's suggestion, we decided to just take a shorter route back, and headed back to 945 and down to Flying J.

Promise, I'll get a new battery... or at least remember to bring my backup jump start battery that was sitting in my office!

Jim got a work-out... thanks for the push! I won't make you pay for the route lead next time... promise!

A good ride, good people, good conversation...

We'll be out there again soon!

One of 'yall want to put this on the TWT Calendar as a recurring event?
Hadn't ever really thought about it... I'm just here to shame the rest into riding... :rider:

I could do that!

thanks for the idea!

UPDATE:

Calendar event submitted.

Thanks again!

OK... so for those that aren't interested in helping me push start my bike... I now have a new Li-Ion Battery installed, and I promise to bring my jump start battery with me next ride... :doh:

As for next weekend, it's Superbowl Sunday, and I'm a die-hard Broncos fan... but the game doesn't start until 5:30... Plenty of time to get a ride in AND see the game!

We should still be good for the Sunday ride. Any interest yet?
