I may be up for a ride...I'd rather go in the woods, but who knows what it looks like out there. Street may be the only option.

Especially if I am there. I am certainly not ready for any real adventurous riding, just some easy pavement to remember what it is like to be on 2 wheels again.

Forecast still says in the 40s but cloudy and chance of rain. Still somewhat promising.

Ahhh, you guys are killing me! We have family here until around noon, couldn't make Rochester b-4 3:00 and that's if I gear up and go as soon as they leave....

If you head West, let me know! Sounds like a great day to ride, no matter what .

Cool2 Forecast is still good.

Saturday might be a better day for riding, but I'm planning that day for a front suspension upgrade on my R80ST.

Sunday is riding day. At least for me. No, wait! Saturday, too...I'll need to test the new fork cartridge emulators!

There was a lot of that crap about 60 miles in during the Vegas2Reno race... coupled with no wind it would just hang in the air and you couldn't see more than a couple feet in front at times. I saw one of those side-by-side ATVs hit a stuck ATV in a could of it. The driver didn't even realize he had hit something so just hit the gas to try to power through. Luckilly the rider of the ATV wasn't on it at the time.

So yes, silt sucked but luckily I was able to ride off to the side of the road, rougher but much more solid. Doesn't look like that is an option in this case!
