That is so cool to see Linda in those pics!! Ben would have loved that!!

Linda rides a Harley, Ben said he'd worry himself sick when they'd go riding together.

Right on! I hope she continues to ride...and maybe she can ride out to our meets! I really regret not getting to talk to her...


Funny thing about worrying...I've been an everyday commuter even before our 20-year marriage began. I never thought about how Eric felt about it...never even occurred to me that he would worry...it was just a fact of life, something I did. A few years ago he decided to start commuting on a bike. I was like, "Shit! Um, no...not a good idea, Eric...it's a jungle out there, you're not used to it, awesome racing skill set doesn't cut it on the Bay Bridge, it's dangerous, you shouldn't do it...no fucking way..." He laughed his ass off and did it anyway, telling me he crazy worried about me every minute of every day I was on the bike. Now I know what he's been going through. Kudos to him for not being a crud like me and keeping his mouth shut while supporting me in whatever I wanted to do

Hey those are great pics, Tami. Takes the cake over what I had left so I'll leave it at that. I, too, hope someone can contact Linda and ask her to check the thread from time to time and join us on future rendezvous.

Arctic bound

It was awesome to see everyone at The Warehouse - great to meet Linda and to toast Ben.
Thanks to Zak and others for the B.C., Yukon, and Alaska tips.

I push off in two days for what should be an awesome adventure - 5 weeks up to and around Alaska from Oakland. My wife is riding with me [2-up] as far as Portland and then will fly up to meet me again in Whitehorse, Yukon for the ride home. I'll do a ride report when I get back - I like the time away from computers when I ride. For anyone who's interested, I've posted my Where Am I Riding page below - which will update with my Spot Tracker check-in points.

See you in August,
Steve

Back to Alameda?

Hi Folks.

Great seeing everyone at Port Costa. For the next get together I am recommending Tuesday, July 10, 6:00 p.m. at Speissekamen (sp?) in Alameda.

If someone has a better plan, post it here. Otherwise, see you all there.

Cheers

Kevan

Hey Antwon.

Understood. We have been trying to alternate between Tuesday's and Wednesday's so we don't consistently leave out the same people. How about Biergarden (wherever that is) on Wednesday in August?

Cheers
