No, I'm the one they have to put up with... usually bringing up the rear.

Nice looking bike Augie. Looking like I should leave the liners in the jacket and pants.

If Boike's still under the weather, we're happy to have you join up with our group Sunday. Looks like Sunday may be good for riding. Weather.com shows 57 degrees and only a 10% chance of rain for Morganton on Sunday.

Hope you're feeling better soon Boike! Don't sneeze in the bouillabaisse.

Bet I don't do that again.........

Thanks for the ride

Told my wife that's why I have street tires, so as not to be tempted by such foolishness ...
