Great ride!!!

Nice meeting everyone. Sorry Butcho and Mike p on missing the light and getting us seperated from the group. The darn kill switch jumped out at me. (its too close to those nice hand warmer controls )

Hope everyone else had a great time.

Ahhhhh.

I was hoping you guys just peeled off and we didn't lose you. Sorry we lost you.

NIce Riding with everyone. Hope the wether holds for a few more, perhaps thanksgiving weekend, if not sooner. McBikers is not to far from Northville for me, about 40 minutes. I have a few routes from Northville (all in my head) that are 90% + dirt roads from Northville to the likes of Dexter, Pickney, Hell and beyond. Some day I will go high tech and get GPS to record them

I seriously thought you guys peeled off. I'm glad I finally got the chance to meet and ride with all of you today. Thanks for the great time.

Good stuff !

Paul and Mike, nice to meet you. Goose, Michael, Matt and Dave, good to have you guys out with us.

I'm glad you decided to come with us, Don.

Thanks to Todd for leading and pelting me with rocks ! Next time i won't go so easy on you, sucka.

Nico, you'd enjoy ridding the 660. Maybe next time we get together.

No biggie about the light. It is Mark or Goose by the way. Great riding with everyone, see everyone next time!

Seriously, I just dribbled a little into my keyboard.

EDIT: Hey Todd, that 996 is pretty sexy too.

Ha, again no problem. Good day, great company, fun ride, and no mishaps. No need to apologize.

I was just trying to mark the trail.

There is this top of hill corner on Tipsico lake road that makes the bike so light as you rise over it that your back tire freewheels and your guts jump up like a roller coaster. It may also cause some roost.

Actually I was bored leading the pack and wanted to race. Sucker :)

missed ya

I'm sorry that I missed you guys. Sounds like you had a good ride. I made it to the McDonald's a little after 12:30. Missed you so head up toward Davidson and then back toward Hartland. I think I crossed your tracks on Tipsico lake road.(Roost marks in the dirt) Thats not far from my house. Maybe I get my chores done earlier next time so I can make it on time.

That hill was my favorite part, if your standing on the pegs it feels like your floating.
