    "They fought back to back and picked each other up and fought again. At noon Rawlins could not chew.
    They are going to kill us, he said.
    John Grady mashed beans in a tin can with water till he'd made a gruel out of it and pushed it at Rawlins.
    You listen to me. Dont you let em think they aint goin to have to. I intend to make em kill me. I wont take nothin less ... "

    Ha. :D All in good fun ... apologies to Cormac McCarthy ...

    So. Let's Ride! Who's going to Hollister on April 26, 27 or 28th? Who's going to be in Stonyford for the Sheetiron on Friday, May 17th? :ricky

    The guy with the badge decides how much of your time his is going to waste... today;
    How much of your time he is going to waste when your court date comes up... in 3 months;
    How much of your holiday leave you have to take to attend court;
    How much of your gas you have to burn to get to court;
    How much of your money you have to spend on towing and impound;
    How much of your "hey honey, I need you to come pick me up at the courthouse" resources you're going to burn up;
    And in general, how much aggravation you have to endure...

    All this, even though you are right, and the case is dismissed.

    SO, YEAH. I tend not to antagonize coppers because there is just no way to tell if the one you are about to interact with is a power-tripping dickhead. (I know, only .005% of cops are PTDs, but they're SO memorable when you run across one) They should come up with a labeling system "Warning: this law officer contains 6000% of your recommended daily allowance of ASSHOLE". :huh

    I laughed so loud at this I scared the girl sitting next to me! And yes, they are memorable when you run into one.

    Hi LeDakaR!,

    Maybe I'll try to pack up today ... can meet you at the Mercury Cafe tomorrow morning (Paige and Octavia) ... I'll be happy to get out of the City anytime before rush hour ... 2 pm ... so, I'm pretty flexible ...

    There will be a ride leaving from the clubhouse Saturday morning ... rider's meeting at 9 am at 18th St. and Folsom ...

    We also have a meeting tonight at the San Francisco Motorcycle Club ... Ace Cafe Rob is often there around 7 pm showing roadracing (MotoGP, WSB, etc.) on our big projection screen ...

    BAARCers always welcome ... :D

    see you around the campfire,
    -- SFMCjohn

    I don't get to post or interact much, but I was hoping to find out if there is any meets coming up. I finally got my bike back together and would love to do some local riding or maybe not so local! PM me if you would like to try and set up some dirt/highway rides.

    Something came up and I wasn't able to camp this weekend, but I did get out for a day at HH. I stopped by the airstream and said hi to a few folks. Wow... you had quite a crowd! That's great. It looked like you were having a good time.

    I hadn't been able to get out on the dirt bike for close to two months, nor for any joy on the street bikes, either, so I would have had fun just going up and down Rancho Road... LOL. Come to think of it... I didn't do Rancho Road. It's a good one to blow out the carbon. :evil
