Anyone planning to ride this weekend? I'm wondering if we might get a group together???? Saturday is looking like it might be the better day.

We are actually kid free this weekend, so I'm hoping we get some ride time in, weather is looking decent. Gotta find out what else we may have going on first.

Anything definite yet about a ride? And where? Mike's son has a game Saturday at 1:00,I think, in Pontiac, but Sunday I'm sure we are free all day so far. So depending on the time and where, we could do either day.

If all goes as planned, I might ride both days.

Saturday, I'm figuring on meeting around 1:30, like Berto & I did last week. This allows things to warm up a bit (temperature-wise). We left from Northville last Saturday, but I'm flexible if anyone suggests another location for a starting-off point. The advantage of a Northville start is that we are in the country on nice roads in 2 minutes. The downside is that many of you are on the East side.

Berto, Chris & Ms. GasMan - you plan on joining us?

Ima guessing we won't make that ride then because of the soccer game. Maybe another on Sunday?

Monica,

I have more flexibility than you & Mike; it's easier for me to change my plans. Also, Mike's got my cell # if you want to talk later or tomorrow.

Yea I'm HOPING that Monica and I can maybe ride out to my boy's 1 o'clock game, which is at Ultimate Soccer Arena near Opdyke Rd and M59 in Pontiac, then ride out to where ever from there. Unless she doesn't go with me there and her and I meet somewhere afterwards. I sure hope it's nice out! It'd be great to finally do some riding together.

Dang Buzz, you're a VIP now!!! ;D I hope the wing and her sportster fire up for ya. It's still pretty cold out right now, as expected, so I'll post around noon before I or we take off for the game in Pontiac. Dunno what our plans are specifically yet, but we do plan on getting as much riding in as allowable, both today and Sunday. If it's not over 40 degrees by noon today, my warm ass will be planted in a car till later.

well i got all excited about going for a ride yesterday. woke up about 6 and started getting all my riding gear together and took the battery off the charger. called over to my neighbors about 9 and the line was busy ( she lets me keep the bikes in her garage for the winter ). called back at 10, line still busy. called again at 10:30, still busy ( must have dialup for the puter ;D ). once more at eleven, no luck line still busy. i take the van and go visit my mom for a few hours and make it home about two, you guessed it neighbors line is still busy so i go ring the door bell and no answer. after ringing the door bell for the third time and getting ready to go home my other neighbor said to me "what you do? forget she is out of town this weekend? ;D

I waited until about 2 p.m.; by then the thermometer had reached a balmy 51 degrees. Not able to delay any longer, I suited-up and did an abbreviated WSL (West Side Loop), swinging down through Ann Arbor. The ride out, heading west, was nice with the sun in my face. Heading home was a different story - it got a bit chilly (high 40s?). But it was all worth it and the bike runs like a banshee with the cold, oxygen-rich air.

Mike/B-Kinger & Monica - Sorry I missed your call.
