Nope, I'm back. But I'll tell you this winter thing makes those tropics seem pleasant right now.

Lol yea cant wait to get back to a dryer climate. I got laid off and found work out of state to get by for a few years. First we moved up to Spokane for two years, we had a lot of fun while we were there and made lots of great friends. Spokane was a lot like boise, but has the special type of crazies only found in north idaho and south of the mason dixie(lol its not just a myth). Then I got a job here in Seattle last year, its been fun, tons of site seeing all summer long. I just accepted a job offer in meridian, we are in the middle of packing things up

I am surprised we didn't cross paths. Welcome back to Boise. I left Boise late 2008 and moved to Spokane for a new job. I am now happily back in Boise to stay (I hope). We met some terrific people in Spokane and will miss them. I'd enjoy meeting up with you guys for a ride this year. I am up for about any kind of riding.

Wow that is crazy. Yea it would be great to meet up and do some riding, summer cant come soon enough. Though there is some good(but exhausting) riding around boise even during the winter if there isnt to much snow on the ground . But at the moment I dont have a motorcycle, probably will be a few months before I get one.

As I sit here...

With winter blues attempting to take root upon my soul, I take a stoic look back to reflect back on the great year I had. in light of the dire predictions, and well, I am still here and so are you. So instead of going into 2013 with any predetermined nay-saying, gloom and doom... aside from politics. I am once again looking forward to seeing you all out there yet once again. Beside this thread needs a little bump.





Hope it brought a smile...

See you out there

Been following Mr Whitaker on adventure in SA. Got this link today on the race. Watch the incredible save the rider makes at the 1:06-1:08 mark into the video. Now I remember why racing and going fast is a young mans game!

Ed, you butt head, your stirring it up good man. I agree I would love to leave NOW, since it's been single digits at my house too. Alas I am tapped out, Taxes, Holidays, gifts, and helping finance my daughter with Graduate App, fees etc-etc. Now that said February I am good to go, but already committed to a date. Had you chimed in earlier! I am SO READY to get out of the frozen !@#$ RIGHT now too........ the Temps..... just look at those temps


Way to Stir it up buddy.

I knew the date for your ride was set. I was asking if anyone else was interested in going sooner.
