Thanks for the tip. They always come across as dirty hippys to me. But i jsut figure they were made because they did not have a beard like myself. or they were pissed because they had pedals. i know i sure would be

Then another car pulls behind me also found some smaller dirt trails. some water and some bigger things to get through. also learned mtn bikers are not to friendly. I was not even going fast or on there side of the road. Waved but did not get a waves back. i am getting a little faster. maybe 2-3 years i will be able to keep up with you guys

I guarantee you're fast enough. I was passed by a butterfly last year on a SLAP route. Ride your ride, dude. The "loose bike" feeling off road is hard to get used to if you have mostly ridden street. Holler if you want to go on a short ride (when warmer!).

There are at least some friendly mountain bicyclists (including some that frequent this BS thread and also ride DS). Anything on 2 wheels gets a wave from me.

Would love to go with you guys on a ride. just dont have anything legal for the street yet. Going to get the paper work tomorrow from the dmv then down to the State police to get a bond title started. I am in Bella Vista and find some fun little dirt trails close enough to have some fun on.

thanks for the offer

I usually get that first, so I just send it back.. or I get this


I don't wave if I'm on the Beamer, it's not allowed. You have to snub everyone except other BMW riders... it's a law

I typically wave to everyone, even bicycles and scooters.

but I TRY and time the waves to Harley riders to be about mid apex in the curves, its amusing to watch some of them try to return the wave.

How come you didn't wave at me when you went by? Were you fiddling with the BMW cappuccino machine again?

Welcome Snake. Do you slither or rooster tail it?
What bike,?
Living in ES or just visit sometimes?
Warning: You are too close to Doc L, Toyman. Arkwizzard so be on the look out......

You got a great playground all around you of all kinds of riding....

& Diversity Weekend, Doc's favorite time to ride the bench in ES in the Basin Street Park....

Welcome Vinnie. Gus gives good advice! You can save Doc's place on his bench for him.

I tried something different today when cooling red snapper on the grill. Special spice, loads of Mayo and plenty of dry-shredded Parmesan. Really tasty, my new favorite way to grill fish.
