I am driving out and going through riverside with a rather empty flatbed trailer with one lonely bike on it... welcome to ride out with me. I can bring extra tie downs and we can meet up and throw your bike on if you want. Or we can meet up on the road and you can follow me the last bit out to ranch.

@Gearhart: I get off work at 5, how perfect is that? (I can cut out a little early if traffic is kind to you). I agree with Bourkeco, you ROCK!

Sounds like Fun...

I am down from the cold wet BC for a bit of sun. I chatted with riceless and he convinced me to give the bomb run a go. Old, slow, fat fart on a EXCR-450. Tired of injuries so chicken is my middle name. I'll bring up the rear.

Hope to see y'all Sat morning.

Hard to say, Scott. I would guess between 10 and 20? Not everybody posts and some send private messages instead.

I had to work late today, I hope I get out on time tomorrow...

Glad to hear you are joining us OneEffinName!

See you guys out there!

Nice Alp!

Hey Mike, looks like I'll be out there to ride Saturday but probably not the River Ride. I think I'll do some stuff in the hills.

Sticker - yes please.

See ya in the morning.

ride the $*#(@) thing, and you'll quickly learn that the stain marks in your brooks were firstly from fear and then from ecstacy.

Hmmm. I'm chasing carborator gremlins (I think) instead of chasing Gearheart and company.

I enjoy spending time in the garage when my efforts are rewarded.

Other times...not so much.

But Jeff, then if it started to act up I couldn't even pretend to try & fix it.

Well it was a great ride with a great bunch of guys, Thanks for setting this up!

I'll work on my sand skills over the next year and maybe I can keep up a little better for the 2013 run. I'll put
in a sandbox in my back yard.

P.S. who do I send some bux to for the stickers?
