Gee, let's see, I know this is important for something....


Was there any actual riding in this adventure, or just a lot of hanging around fiddling with stuff?

Yes, Sam on the green machine but not his, borrowed.


He is tired of mine so now he has moved on to "others"

CADS ride this Saturday

Hi CADS riders,

Bill is leading a ride on Saturday. We'll meet in Orangedale at 11:00AM. He will probably head for Ocala NF to do some scouting for the BMWNEF Rally GS ride. Most riders will be on 650's or smaller. The forecast is for 50% chance of rain. The only chance we'll cancel is if it's pouring when we're heading out to meet up. Anyone interested can call or email me that morning if it's raining for a go or no go.

See you there,
Dean

I'll just say....you missed it. You, on one hand, had a good excuse, a couple others were gonna be real late so didn't even try, they know who they are. And like Fred said, a few others "stayed home and watched the weather channel".

We pretty much found the best the NF has to offer. We duplicated the route from the ride we did last Winter, you know the one. Then we rode down and did the sandy dragon again and a good bit more. Decided that probably wouldn't work for the big bikes, but with a few adjustments the rest of it can.

Never had a drop of rain all day and actually wished there'd been a bit more in the forest before we got there, the sun came out after lunch. As usual we got home after dark, but had a great day, Fred, Dave, Larry, and myself. I'll look thru the pics, if there's anything interesting, I'll send'em to you.

I was at work cussing all day because I didn't ride to work and the sun was out. I'm thinking about taking a ride after church North for a burger.

Sorry guys! I accepted an invitation from a co-worker at Pro Race. Suddenly everyone I have ever known received an invitation too! I have pulled my membership just because it weirded me out a bit.

No worries here. It is kind of weird. I have never heard of them before. Plus I don't think we've ever met, lol

Bill's Recent Ocala Ride

Here are some random pics from a ride Bill and a few others did to Ocala last weekend in defiance of the forecast of 80% chance of rain. I think there's a lesson here...

Cruisin'







You can see the grin even under the helmet!






Classic!!




Perfect ending
