Good to see that you're out riding so soon. Be careful but don't sit around and have that joint rust shut on ya. Dave

Your wife has been misinformed, you are going riding.

I'll let you tell her.

Actually, that "engagement" got canceled and I'll see you there, assuming I get the DR's carb tuned.

Remember kids, beer isn't just for breakfast anymore.

Sure! Not necessarily by me, but yes, they can.

Cellphone? Check. Wife with bike trailer? Check. Excuses ready? Check.

Good ride Maddaddy, I even had a big shiny black bear run out in front of me near Dusk Peak on the way back. Cool way to end a fun day.

Ditto Good ride last weekend!

It was a good ride last weekend even if I did have to cut out early. Looks like I made only a third of it.
Now I'm back in town and want to go again.

Anyone up to heading out around Noon today? Same area or Capital?
PM me.

Derz Day

Took the DRZ out today, ran like a top as usual. Took it out to FS 27/28 and some of the different spurs...








Good day overall. Breakfast at Loggers Landing really hit the spot. Hope to see some of you out there soon WFC

Hey south sounders!

Hello,

Anyone up for some riding?

I'm in Oly and have a 690 enduro or a r1150gs to go out on. I'll be here for a few weeks before heading off to Montana for the Montana 1000 ride. I lived here back in the 80's so am not completely unfamiliar with the area, but have spent recent years riding out of northern New Mexico.

I'm on vacation so anytime is a good time for me.

So who's riding?
