As much as I can find.

Weather

You will get wet.
Bandana's in zip lock bags for important dry cleaning of goggles etc
I bring extra gloves (also in Zip Lock)
Zip Lock bags for wallet and phone.
Bring big towel and another change of cloths for ride back.

You can never tell about summer rides and when/if rains. Ya never know.

after last weekend in BW i noticed my suspension is off. i bottomed out about 3 times and chirpped the front tire a couple times on landing. when i got home i notice rubber on the back of the front fender. i thought the suspension already seemed stiff but i guess not enough. it would be cool if someone could help me out on one of our rides so i get it set up close...any other 690 guys notice this?

Out for tomorrow

Looks like I'm out for tomorrow. My Mom had to be taken to the ER today and we just got home. Will need to be with her tomorrow. Hope you have a great ride and I'll try to catch up with you soon.

No Ride for me - Sorry all

Phil and I tried and we cant even make it out of FT Walton with high water.

Sorry guys but this doesn't make sense; I cant afford to get hurt and mud seems to do that to me.

Perhaps later this weekend.

I am out

Bike fell over this morning and broke the clutch lever...tried to interchange the clutch lever from 3 other bikes in the garage and nothing fits. I apologize since I kind of started this idea. Guess I'll be on bike bandit ordering parts today instead of riding...and putting the 3 other bikes back together.

Just drove up from grandfathers condo in gulf breeze. Sun is out in Milton. Will wait to see if anyone shows. If not, start tracking back east with a pontoon boat.

I feel like a Wuss

Was the time when I rode rain or shine... but I just felt like this was one of those days when I should stay at home...

Its still pouring over here.

I talked to Orange Garret and he said Mike was there so at least two showed up to brave the elements.

Tell us how it went....

Riding in the rain in hot weather = WIN!

Riding in the rain in cold weather = FAIL!

Words of wisdom from your friendly neighborhood chucklehead!

Weather

It has been pretty nice weather over here in Pensacola...partly cloudy, occasional light rain. Based on the radar, it looks like Hutton is right on the edge of showers. Just ordered my new clutch lever...we'll have to see how long it takes to get here before I can ride again .

Vic, got your voice mail. Thanks for the heads up. Will call you later. Gimme showed up at the house just after you called so we went to Brox for 35 miles of fun. No rain and more than 50% was all new to us. OG lead us to a couple new trails a few weeks ago and we just kept wondering around. Lots of goggle cleaning due to low hanging branches but we had fun.


Any change we can start working details for Timberlake on Sunday if the weather works out? I don't have any tracks so will need a guide.

Enjoy the 4th all.
