I picked Sunday for my day off, maybe in another week or two. I am dying to get some more serious riding!

Anyone have an idea for next weekend?

I'm in if Uncle Sam cooperates.

If anyone enjoys autocross (or is curious about what it is), come down to SIR dragstrip (south of the Pima fairgrounds) Sunday morning. If you show up before ~8:30, you can drive.
www.azbrscca.org
That's where I'll be since I couldn't figure out a ride that Uncle Sam would let me go on...
Pesky Uncles!

Possible

I may do the ride instead. I am getting really tired tonight (I haven't had a day off for a couple of weeks) and I can get more sleep if I do the ride.
It blows my chance of making the championships this series though, not that I have a great chance after last month's performance.

I'd guess we have all gone mad. It's just a matter of to what degree. I'm ready for the padded room.

I blame my madness on too many excursions to CSM. Its bad for me, but I only do small doses to prevent total liquidation of my sanity.

sunday on any moto ride

I would like to thank H2OKarensa and Chris for leading this ride and supplying all the good times. The hot dogs were also very tasty.
So until we trail again happy trails.

^THIS^

That was a fine time indeed. Wish I'd been able to stay for the dogs etc but Duty Called.

IF Chris is here, can you spell out what that Fire guy had to say (if it isn't stuff that n00bs like myself can look up easily)? I was chatting up the young lady with the Transalp and missed the details of what we supposedly need for permittage.

Hey all! I had a great time on the ride and want to thank you all for coming out. It sure is nice to meet some other riders.
Bring the ladies next time. The trails are estrogen deficient.
We'll host more rides throughout the year. Look forward to seeing you all again.

Thank you, it was nice to have a beer and dog after the ride. Plus the motorcycle collection was really cool!

Hopefully with more familiarity and those better tires, I can get some better air out of the bike. I took the powerline trail on the way home and got a few more little jumps
