OMG, did Josh really call the WRR a "little girl's bike"? He's just pissed he's not tall enough to ride one. Or was he saying its a chick magnet?

Schizz, riding the WRR is a great experience (although I-35 won't be its best road). Its a fun bike that will put a smile on your face. Its amazing what sort of riding you will be able to do on it. Sadly, after about 3 hours, the seat will remove that smile from your face.

On the camp out. I've got that weekend open, but my fiancé just got her house under contract, so my participation depends on how much packing and moving we've accomplished by then.

John calls his Super Sherpa a "little girl's bike". He's getting a WRR whenever he makes it back from SA.

Don's WRR has an aftermarket seat so maybe I'll make 3 hours on it. Hope to see you mid-March. Bring the Mac.

Anyone who can ride a Pig over a Buck should carry the day.

Shoot me text and tell me where to be

Odie and I are headed to Loco tomorrow. We'll meet up near Waco and wander thataway by the most obscure route I can conjure up. Bosque County dirt. We'll try to be there by 11:45. He's shipping outta Texas to go to Cali-forn-i-a. Come join us. Or meet us there.

Uhhh...what? This is planning. For me.
