As a rule, I don't plan on falling. I think it becomes a self-fulfilling phophecy. But with those tires, you may be wise to plan ahead.

Thinking Scouts for the RawHyde course, not for chasing you and SOG around sweepers.

Not me on SoCo.

When ya doing RawHyde?

I've been thinking about riding out there for the course. I will probably be riding out there in November, but not sure if I can really swing working the course in.

I think I'm going to try one up front instead of a TKC. Now I know where to find one.

Do it. Dody and I are gonna be hitting some bike shops with RTB3 flyers. Dody wants to ride but I may be caging it myself. Heat is getting to me and the idea of hitting bike shops all afternoon on a bike ain't that appealing.

Hope you guys had fun. I was going to be there but then my other half sprung a trip to Burleson on me. Said something about in-laws and their anniversary or some such nonsense.
