I think you should wait for first snow. At the least, a good rain.

Hey Grub!
Me neither, I was J/K-ing. I don't think Hell is looking out for me.
I'm hoping to get out your way after I get back from Baja (3 weeks from now), are you going to be around?

I know, I was just joking too. I plan on being here, shoot me a PM and we'll get together.

WTF Tony! I thought that you when you got back from Baja you were going to make my bike "that looks like it fell of a trailer going down the highway" functional again!!!!!!!

Grub, I'd be careful taking cross-country on a ride he barely knows how to ride.
Although when he led our last adventure; we told him to go the wrong way and enduro-ince, after he had caught him by waving arms across a big drainage said "We got lucky, 'Cause neither of us would've ever caught him!" Truer words have never been spoken!

I tried to follow him a couple of years ago for a little while

That's the beautiful about riding with him in my hood, he doesn't know his way around so he can't get too far in front of me
