Any one-day rides the next few days?

Unfortunately I can't spend multiple days in the desert. :cry

I'm up for day rides though, most any day until 1/2. Big bike or small. I promise not to bring a topcase :D

Oh yeah, merry X-mas!

Sounds good. I'll see you at the Dennys in Mojave at about 8:30. It looks like about a 90-min ride for me from the SFV.

Locking cap for IMS tank?
