NJ- Big Trailie Ride, Saturday, 1/14

Kickstands up at 10 from Loukas Last American Diner, 3205 US Highway 22, in Branchburg, NJ.

In addition to the ride, if we have some time, we just might have a "challenge"

I won't be connected tomorrow so if you have any questions, ask today.

Sunday Sunday Sunday, Not Saturday

Because of the weather forecast (90% chance of rain), I'm going to change the ride date to Sunday. Same time, same place.

Yeah- it's all roads.

Except for the challenge we might do at the end. But I think it might be sort of a loop, and if it's not we'll backtrack to the start of it, so you can have a cheering section if you decide to try it.

I'll be leaving from Green in Sussex if anyone from up this way wants to latch on and follow me down. Ill take 206-287-22.
Jason, Ill firm up via email, but it's shorter for you to go Holland Tunnel / 78 west / 287 south. You can meet me on the shoulder on 287.

Bad news for me. I jsut put my new rear TKC on after slashing my other one with only 1k on it. Anyway, went to start her up and my battery is deading then Kelseys nut's. Shouldn't be. Cross Country BMW is sending their truck and trailer to pick up the Panzer to find out whats going on. So, as far as 2morrow, I'm unfortunetly, out. Dam

Cry

current accuweather.com forecast is prohibitively cold:

"Sunday - A morning flurry or two; windy and much colder with clouds breaking for some sun.
High Temperature: 29° F
RealFeel®: 9° F"

personally, i just don't have the gear to ride in those conditions.

any thoughts of bumping this back to monday [mlk day] which is supposed to be up in the 40s again?

Time to get a reliable bike- I think there's a TransAlp or two available on ebay. Or maybe Jim will trade you straight up for his

Walter,
I have a few errands to do Monday AM - if it all goes well I will see you at the Diner. There is a lot of ice around my place tonight, not sure I could make it out the driveway as it is now.

My schedule gets pretty tight starting Tuesday, may not be able make many rides till May, so I hope I can at least get this one in.

Eric

As a BMW owner I don't care about reliable, my BMW is far superior. Now Herr Walter Von Barlow, 30 days in the cooler for you. Next time maybe youll think twice before you speak negativly about the fatherland,................take him away.
