Does this mean we are drinking our dinner?




Or, just eating LOTS of peanuts?

I can drive tonight and will bring a digable pizza menu. Depending on how many folks show up and who wants what, I can go get it or we can have it delivered.

Looking for sure at a top-end rebuild on the XT. Damn - literally sitting here with tears in my eyes. I didn't realize it was possible to love a bike so much.

Any suggestions for parts and service are welcome. Thinking about taking it to Hagan's Cycles...top end rebuild is over my head. Please PM me if you have any thoughts/ideas/advice/etc... Thanks to all of you who helped me get it going enough to have a lil' more fun on it!

Errr...so, Kenny and Ivan, I guess riding for me this weekend is out.

Ah, bummer! What makes you believe it needs the rebuild? Have you had the compression tested?

So, we were thinking, how about Thirsty Monk South? It looks like they have a real menu these days!

Unofficially officially, yes. It needs a top end rebuild.

That is too bad Fancy Indigo. I wrote to a friend of mine; perhaps you know him (Daniel.) He is quite handy with bike repair and restoration. Perhaps he can lend a hand.... He might have other projects but worth checking anyway.

Too bad about this weekend though. I am sure there is a resolution to your beloved XT soon.

Look forward to riding with you all sometime.

Sorry I missed it, after the last couple years, I find it difficult to turn away work from clients with money.

I can't blame you there, Nrom! I hope we'll see you at the next one, unless of course, some clients with money keep you away

Does Monday work for anybody? I have something else planned for Tuesday and we can't do it on Wedgedays. Then I will be gone for the next 3 weeks. It would be good to get together with everyone again.

If you mean Monday as in tomorrow, I'm out. If you mean Monday as in next week. I'm in!

BTW, my trip out west was freakin' awesome (except for that Kansas thing)!
