Word to the Wise!

When I happened to mention to my better half that it looked like Sunday would be the better of the two weekend days to go riding I got a very strange, cold stare...she just nodded and said "yep".

This out of the ordinary response prompted me to consult the calendar a little more closely....seems Sunday is Mothers day!

Disaster narrowly averted....Happy wife, Happy Life!

That's one of those there's those that have once experiences and those that will.

Alas, there are those who no longer have their Mom's to celebrate with or who are divorced from their children's mom, they'll be celebrating the occasion spinning about the fruited plains and hills on two wheels -:)

Augie: Where are you?

Ride

So since nobody is riding Sunday to be with moms/wives, and I just have to go to work to support them (hahah) anybody got Tuesday free? Local or hills............I am ready to go after some new brakes, tires, and a sweet spray paint job to some old parts that hit the dirt too many times..........

Not this Tuesday, taking the end of the week off to go to RDV in Hampton. But anytime you feel like dragging a big bike around I can play hookie from work and go for a ride during the week. Riding is way better than working anyday...

Yes sir, EvanADV and I are heading out before lunch on Thursday. Sounds like it's going to be pretty full there. Should be a lot of fun.

Hope you guys have fun and good weather for the RDV. I will be headed to MD on Friday to attend my daughter's graduation at the University of Maryland. One more kid off of the payroll! (Only one more to go.)

Ride safe!

I see that a couple of y'all are headed of of town Thursday for a rally, but I'll be at Hawthorne's and hope to see some folks...

JMforPres and I are leaving in a few days for a trip to Montana, Colorado and Utah (on our RT's) and anyone who shows up Thursday evening has the right to give us advice on what to see and where to ride. Although I must say, BluRidgeRider has already given us some excellent insight on the best roads in SW Colorado!
