Last night was fun! I've only been attending for the last quarter of the four years, but it's been a great ride!

Joe: Thank you for continuing to organize these get together events at Hawthorne's.

Uly's back on the road

Back on the road and ready for winter. Added heated grips, zeta handguards with integrated LED turn signals, and bar end mirrors.



And I also picked up a spare set of plastics... I like the orange set, but I wanted a spare set to paint and change things up a bit.


I hope you all have a good Thanksgiving - I'm taking the Uly down to Myrtle Beach to do some riding with my parents.

This weekend

I know it's a holiday and all, but I'd like to get out for some riding. Weather.com says it will be nearly 50 this weekend with almost no chance of rain! Anyone available to ride on Sunday?

I could probably do off-road or street riding. I prefer off-road, because I still need to ride more trails before Broxton Bridge in January, but I would be dependent on someone else leading. CAW is going to be open, so I might go down there if the rains this week don't force them to shut down.

Hmmm...I just got some new off road boots I need to test...Wonder how the wifey would react to a ride on Sunday afternoon. There are some new areas I want to explore around my house on the DRZ. Let me feel that one out with her and see if she has any plans. I'm just north of Midland. - Andy

That would work for me. Let me know. That's not too far from me - I might not need to haul the bike there. :-) I would just have to be home by 5:00 pm.

Are you available on Saturday? Might be less time constraints for me.

Well that didn't really work out. I asked about Saturday, and now I can't go on Sunday either.
I'm going to try to get out next weekend. Too much for us to deal with this weekend. Sorry.

Bump for the next meet-up. I already know that I'll be in Florida for a company party on the 19th and will miss the December get-together...

OK, maybe we can do something next weekend. I might try to get out and explore today so I can better lead next weekend.

I've been meaning to comment on this... What are you thinking of doing with the spare set? Colors, patterns etc? There are few things I like better than giving advice when someone else is undertaking the effort. And the expense. And the risk.
