On another note, I understand a bike went down near 56 and CR 1175 at Brazos point...a helicopter has been called and the rider is suppose to be in bad shape. I hope it is not one of our riders...

Not one of ours that I know of. There was a dark red Harley out this way with no helmet etc on and the timing is about right.

Another accident happened an hour or so ago. A friend of mine gave his Shadow to much rear brake and lowsided in some gravel that had been kicked up mid turn but he was fineother than he's sure to have some nasty bruises. The bike had a couple of scratches on the tank, bent the clutch side peg up, and tweaked his handlebars. That was on the Johnson county side.

PJ. I could have put canola oil in it. It wouldn't matter.

Oh, that sucks man. Sorry. ;(

I've thought about it. My ride today was cut short by gravel and a ditch. Not sure if I can get away from the woman yet. What'd you have in mind.

I think veriest and I both have a hankering for a burger at the LC. I'm shooting for 11:30. Of course, I'll have to stop for gas.
