Looks like Thing 1 and Thing 2 made quite the impression.
As I thought about I don't even think the guy was in our group.....does any one else recall seeing him? I know his wife was in the beginner group.

Oh, and I was roosted more by others with tires not suited for off road use as they clearly didn't understand throttle control but yet signed themselves up for the advanced section on a muddy rainy day. Bottom line is I had a good time and stayed away from others when the antics were ongoing.

That's Matt's buddy. Get him to tell you the glove story from JVB's tech day last year. Classic!

He was sorta in our group. Like, I saw him there in the beginning, but then I think I spent the rest of the time shooting roost at him. Different strokes I guess...

Truth be told, there were probably 6 riders that belonged in the 'advanced group', out of the 12ish that were actually there. The remaining riders were overplaying their hands. I suspect he was one of them. Kinda like cornerspin, I'm more interested in testing the limits of traction these days. If that means I'm heavy on the throttle coming out of turns and whilst doing other exercises, then so be it. It's only mud after all... last I checked it does wash out.

he was in your group riding a white F800GS
Has an opinion on everything - when we were waiting at Morton's for the word to ride off he had a couple of comments that made me think he wanted to be in charge. His wife is very nice - a friend of my daughter.

There was someone on white GS that went from two or three riders behind me (passing me, then Blaster) to get to the front of the line as we were traversing a grassy hill. He went down hard...real hard. In fact so hard, he wanted to know if anyone in the group had medical expertise to look at his shoulder/collar bone for potential dislocation.

No, not the same guy.

He's the guy that stopped by at Eagle Bay one day. He picked up his GS after totaling a K1200LT. Seems like a nice enough guy but seems to have opinions on stuff like all of us do.

Found his picture, 30th anniversary F800, wearing grey jacket with black pockets, and street tires....I had a hard time remembering what he looked like.

I withhold my thoughts, but anyone notice the nose of a Husky in the background of that pic?

Yeah I don't like that guy, he made me travel 45 minutes to pick up my glove....the short story is I was changing tires at JVB's place and happened to drop a glove in the drive way. So this douch....guy and his wife pick it up and ride off with it. That wouldn't have been a bad thing except there was about 20ish people, including me, still there and he just rode off with it. He didn't come over to the people in the garage and ask "Hey, did someone loose a glove?" Instead what he did was post on BMWBMW that he found a glove in the parking lot and if the owner wanted it he had to come get it. I sent him a couple of messages and he posted some coordinates as to where the glove could be found and other taunting shit like that...needless to say I wasn't too thrilled with his little cat and mouse game I just wanted my glove back.

I hoped you roosted the shit out of him....

In other news, got a lot of bike maintenance in today! Changed the oil, chain, and both sprockets! The chain and sprockets was very easy in fact it took less time than changing the oil. Yeah it sounds backwards to me too.
