I'd need to see a pretty dramatic change in weather from what we have now. Could happen though- I'm leaving my options open.

Oh, come on now Garry. And PetefromBerkeley. Remember: HOPE AND
CHANGE (so, hope for some changes in the weather!) Don't worry-it will.

And: If you build it, they will come. (How that fits in I don't know)

Computorless informed me that he will be front of his tv if it's wet.

I guess I'll see what's what on friday and decide then, 'cause I'd hate to get my perm wet. Or ride through a puddle that's deeper than I am Garry is tall.

Hey, I've got a new rear tire, and I finally replaced the front turn signals with something that hopefully won't break as easily.... and at least will be cheaper to replace if(when) they do?..

As Treadless said-Friday will be the clencher. Stay tuned. Meanwhile-back up plan? I'd settle for the nearest pub showing Dakar videos and serving some good microbrew. Huh? What? Oh, somebody said Garry was hosting a two day indoor ADV event at his house if Saturday blows out. OK. Cool.......... We can all get "Gillafunky"

Folks, my enthusiasm for a 400 mile ride on Saturday is certainly dampened with this weather report for Paso Robles, and Hollister area is no better:

http://classic.wunderground.com/cgi-...st?query=93446

I'm going to stick close to home on Saturday - and look forward to catching up with youse on the next ride. If anybody does get out there on Saturday, be sure to put up some pictures.

Catch you on the next one then Andrew.

I'll be checking the report Friday night 10:00pm after watching Supernatural on TV. Then decide. Or if not a torrent I might ride down there anyway just for the hell of it.

Well crap...
I really don't want to be out done by the Danger Ranger.
So if you're still going to show Garry I guess I must also.
