Well, i'm glad you're alright then!

I'm riding right by that KTM rally this September, one of the crew i'm riding with is going to the rally, he plans to peel off of the COBDR to attend.

We should get the metro folks together again next week sometime, somewhere...

You are starting to make me question my decision to ride with you guys? I hope you are OK. Something happens on every one of these outings. I guess it is no secret that it says on my resume that, I do not ride well with others?

I have made my first step into the OKC area. I am working out of a non descriptive location in Nichols Hills Plaza on a TV pilot.

With the appropriate two black Lexus in front every day. We are right next to Coolgreens. Any of you are welcome to drop by as I will be looking for any reason possible to take a coffee break and will be here as little as possible.
cheers.
JM

No worries here. Today is my 72nd birthday and time to give up the dirt riding. I just don't have the reaction time to deal with stuff like the Dempster gravel traps and mud.
I don't feel bad about augering in up there. Four other guys, all a lot younger than me splattered that day.
There's still a lot of this continent to explore without getting gnarly. I'm glad I made it to the Arctic Circle and Inuvik, I would highly recommend the ride to anyone.

Great, lets take an enjoyable ride sometime where we don't have to eat dust, crash and suffer heat exhaustion.

I'm missing something here, what would be the enjoyable part of that ride?

Aug 24th, moving it outside this year.
