And once again, today I see a sportbike fly by with twig-like girlfriend on the back both wearing shorts, flipflops and she has on a tube top thingy. Makes me glad Kevan wasn't wearing his tube top thingy this time.

Hey, meet up is tomorrow.

Hey Kevan,

Wow, that was a close call. Glad to hear you came out of it in pretty good shape. Looks like the gear did its job.

I probably won't make it out to WC tomorrow evening, but I'll tip one to your health at home.

Eek Meeting Y'all

Hey Kevan, thanks for the beer. I owe you one.
It was really nice meeting you all at the Pyramid last night. I look forward to the next event and more importantly, some rides with you folks.

[QUOTE=Kevan Garrett;22077013]Hi Gang.











BTW - there are a few companies that can take that jacket and fix it up if the pads are still OK. I had my expensive Held jacket repaired by a lady in Alameda using canvas for sailboats. It looks just like new and has some serious street cred.

Ping me if you want her name and info.

Had a good time with the gang last night! Too bad the food and the beer isn't better, but the patio was very nice, the music was OK, and the conversations excellent

I think Julie enjoyed the evening as well, may be able to convince her to go to the next one now.

It's a good thing no one took any photos, no one will ever believe they got me to dance on the table, hey I only had 2 IPA's...

Well, dancing on the table wasn't that bad, going naked was kind of tasteless.


Tell Julie that we are bringing the babies for the next one, I'm sure she'll come.

Dang, totally spaced on the meet-up, sorry. Kevan, glad you're ok (more or less)! Scary. Let's all stop crashing - no good.
