Today was a blast. The weather was actually quite pleasant.

Al, that GPS file looks great.

I also make a great video. There's a couple spots in the video that make me laugh every time. I'm having troube uploading so I'll have to try it at work tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone for showing up and making it a ride to remember.

Here's the video I put together, all the camera work was done as I rode one handed. I'm glad I didn't crash and "eat the ham" in front of everyone.

Nope, I only have the Series 1 Framebreather right now, It may have been Tom "2"'s of Javaspeed. I know he has an S2 but I don't know if it's Indian or not.

What an absolute hoot! It was great to meet everyone, and special thanks to Terry and Rob for some legendary leading, and to Rob and Al for some fine filming.

I learned that I can't take pictures while moving! And that I'm in love with my bike. It never lets me down.

I put some pics on the Scoot Commute blog (they're too big to link here).

I'll probably be heading into Pachaug on Sunday, it's the best day not to get shot. Maybe we can do a few miles together. PM me.

Is that why I did not see any other riders on Saturday when I went there with my daughter for her maiden Pachaug ride?

she had loads of fun (so she said, but I am not completely convinced yet), but we stayed mainly on the main dirt roads in the park (especially since I only know the lower loop). we started a couple of the loop trails, but she fell right away both times, and wanted to get back on the dirt roads.

i need to learn the arcadia loop, i think she is ready for that (maybe).
