ok, so femme and I got geared up, rode out in the rain. A bit late, we pulled in at 7:30. Lo and behold, we have the only two bikes in the lot. :-(

So, we ate and took some pics...to follow later.

Somewhat amusingly yet painful, I apparently twisted my knee or something yesterday. It wasn't bad heading out, but by the time we arrived, I couldn't get out of my riding pants and liner without help.

On the ride back (some more rain), I could barely shift. Not a clue what happened, but currently contemplating a trip to the ER. No fun, yech!

Severe Thunderstorms - HA!

Sure there was some rumbling in the sky when I started to get my gear on...but what the hey...it's only water.

Wegster and I braved the famous NC summer rains and headed out. Granted, we are probably pretty close compared to others...only 30 miles...so there we were...


Only two bikes


Had the good wholesome food (in case you're wondering...those are fried onions on top of the "mini" burgers)


Good Conversation...Thanks Wegster!!


By the time we finished the rain had stopped and it was a nice, cool evening...even with all the rain gear on


One of the few times Wegster was able to bend down...sure hope your knee feels better in the morning


Hope to see more of you all at the next one

Sorry Wegster if I dragged ya out...but it was nice to finally see ya in person and get some more riding time in...we'll keep all the other exciting stuff that happened tonight just between us..

I"m kinda amused that **rain** staved off an ADVrider dinner.

Then again, I probably wouldn't have gone out in it either.....


Hope your knee does better soon, bro!

I can't make the Sunday get togethers but if they were move to Sat. evenings, I stand a better chance of making it. But don't reinvent the whell on my behalf, if ya'll have a good thing going, go with it. But if Saturdays sound good to anyone else...?
