Anyone want to go for a little ride one day after work this week? Monday is out but any other day should work.

Rough week for me, Tuesday and Friday are bad.

Pick Wed or Thur and a time and I'll see what I can do!

I was thinking a short little ride after 6:00. Not sure on a day yet.

6:00 would be hard to make, I've been working in Brighton all summer and not getting home until around then. I might be able to sneak out early if I know when/where. I'm probably 1/2 hour from you.

Bob,

From where to where? I may be interested. 6 may be tough but 6:30 should be do-able, depending on your starting point.

Wednesday or Thursday would probably work for me.

Bob

6:30 is fine with me. I figure we could meet someone Downriver and ride to who know's where?

For realzzzzzzzzzzz! LOL I should have a SOA party for the season opener.

As for the ride this week. I just found out a friend of mine's mother in law just died so I'm sure one night we'll have to go to the funeral home. I should know what day by tomorrow.

I'm probably out. Put in 12 hours today so I didn't get to work on my customer's cabinets. Busy tomorrow and Friday, and I must get these cabs shipped this week. I have 2 evenings to get them done. Bleah. Good money, but I hate deadlines.

No, we never went. I was hoping to head out this morning for a little ride by myself but I woke up to rain. I'm thinking early tomorrow I might head out for a ride and try and be home by noon.

Bad day of riding is better than watching the sun from home.

I might go for a little ride tomorrow and try out my new gloves. Depending on what time they arrive and if they fit properly.

Tonight is Bike Night in Ypsilanti. With the fantastic weather, there will probably be lots of bikes. Any interest in a rendezvous there, around 7:00 p.m. ??? If you're going, head for Depot Town, East Cross and River Street.

There is street parking on East Cross but it fills up, so the earlier you get there, the better the parking. You can also pop in to the new Cafe Racer Ypsi, also on East Cross.

That's a possibilty too! I already forewarned the wife I might be going for a ride....

Telecast,

FWIW, I went past the intersection of Pontiac Trail and Dixboro last weekend. I found the building and parking lot you were waiting in. Turns out I didn't go far enough past Dixboro (west on P.T.) and didn't see that driveway leading to that church (or whatever it is). I did thoroughly check out all the other corners, including Pontiac Trail and North Territorial........

Won't make that mistake again. But I did make it to the Inverness Tavern.

I'm just screwin' with you. Next time we'll be more specific about a meeting place. The problem was I was shooting from the hip, basically looking at the image from google. I was trying to find some place to meet and all there was in the vicinity was the mostly hidden parking lot.

I figured as much. I got a bit frantic looking for you guys, since I arrived a few mins. late and did not want to keep you waiting. When I left and headed out to Inverness, I drove in a 'spirited' manner, hoping I'd catch up.

Depot Town in Ypsi is easier to find................... I'm on a Blue Kaw Z750.

Crap, I'm not going to be able to make it, something came up at home. Hope you see this in time.

Bob

I'm out too. I'll be semi-sorta close to the bike night though and might take a ride past just to check things out and see this place. I'll be in the car though.

Bob

I drove past Cafe Racer last night. Looks like they get lots of bikes on that street.

Berto

Their bike nights are Tuesdays, right?

I may have to check one out, maybe next week.

Bob

Tuesday's.

My only concern is how bad traffic gets once school starts back since it's really close to Eastern.

I didn't get to ride, but I did get to mess with my ex's bike in the driveway while the kid napped. It actually didn't feel that bad trying to fix her shit.

Not a problem, it's far enough away from campus so traffic is not a problem. I was there last week and there were more bikes than I've ever seen on Bike Night. The new CafeRacerYpsi is drawing it's own crowd. Very cool assemblage of bikes/riders. You can grab a beverage at the Side Track, Aubree's or a java at CafeRacerYpsi.
