Jamie Z & Mini Trail came by Wolf River Cafe tonight. Nice to meet those guys in the real world. I brought Sled (lurker) with me, so we had a total of four.

I'm out of town next week, perhaps someone else wants to "pick up the ball" for 8/14.

Anyone up for a ride on Sunday afternoon? Weather should be nice.

I might be able to get out. Depends on how much stuff I get done around the house Sat.

I was thinking maybe around 2-2:30 meet up somewhere and ride for a couple of hours.

I had a good time. I assume Sled peeled off at Raliegh Lagrange instead of following me to Macon. That mirror is really there for looks so I never saw him drop off.

If anyone wants to ride on Sunday let me know by shooting me an email. joshualgraves@gmail.com

I can get mail on my phone, but when I leave work I cannot check this site. Leave me your number and we can work out where to meet and ride. C-Ya later.

Well since no one wanted to go play, I went and played by myself. I found some great DS roads out near Chickasaw State Park. Lots of gravel no real "trails", but all in all it was fun. Around 120 miles round trip.

Also would there be any chance of having the "dinner ride" this week on Tues? My aniversary is on Thursday.

Josh, I can't on Tues, I have to babysit my girlfriend's daughter for a few hours after work. I am out this Thursday for a dinner ride as well.

Work is sending me out of state for a meeting Friday morining. The good news is I'll be in AR and I'm talking the XCH with me so I'll get a chance to ride Friday afternoon and Saturday on some good roads.


I didn't ride on Sunday except a mile or so over to Viper6's house for dinner. His wife is an awesome cook.

Have fun in AR. THat is always good when you get to play a little on the out of town work trips. If Vipers wife is such a good cook then maybe we should have one of the dinner rides at his house!

Hmm I've said this before...

I'd like to join you for one of these dinners and / or rides, I just need to know when so I can try to make plans and clear the time.

I'm doing waaaay too much commuting on my bike...
I've even re-geared it so it runs better on the 240 loop, man that suuuucks.

somebody save me, please.

I guess since I was the official photographer at the meet last week, I ought to post the pics.

I arrived first. When I got there, this was the only sign of another bike I could see.



I waited around for a while. My bike looked pretty lonely by itself.



At about 7:15, I began to think I'd be the only one there... but then backup arrived. We immediately went in to eat. Here's the only grub shot I got:



To be honest, I think the general consensus was that the food wasn't all that good.

Before I knew it, we were up and outside, gearing up to leave.



Nice time... we should do it again, though I probably won't be here. I'm leaving the country in a couple of weeks.

Jamie

That beef brisket was like jerky. The place is good catfish nights, but I can not reccomend it other nights. Live and learn.
