    Hello all! My name is Brad and if it's ok, it would be great to meet some of folks as I'm new to this sport and would like to meet some folks in Bend. Is it cool if I show up at Summit about 6 on Thursday? If it is, for whom would I look? Or should I say for what should I look?
    Cheers!
    Brad

    Hello Brad :wave

    It's totally cool if you come to the meet up! We look forward to meeting you!

    We are usually at the front tables near the window. Just make an immediate right, when you walk in the door. We're a little harder to recognize in the winter, without all our gear on. Maybe I'll bring a helmet, and set it on the table. :thumb

    Hey Brad,

    If you want us to be on the look-out for you at the Summit tonight, just bring a little white flag, indicating that you surrender to the ridiculously awesome madness that is motorcycling. We'll be on the look-out for ya.

    BTW - it was my idea to get Tony and me into riding, too. Make sure your wife comes - we need to get her involved. Stacie and I can take her out and get her dirty.

    The guys will sure have fun with that one!

    We will bring a helmet to set on the table tonight, so there will be no doubt who we are.

    Hey, it was great to see old friends and to meet a few new ones! I best get my bike buttoned back up soon.

    Nice to meet Brad and Mike, next time I'll sit at the other end of the table and meet a few of the rest of you. :rofl

    Yep. It was a great time last night - good to see James and Steve after a winter's absence. As for the four newbies to the group - welcome! And, Billy. What can I say?

    A big thank you to all you fine folks for welcoming a newbie! It was great to meet you and I hope to make a habit out of this. Maybe even some motorcycling? I'll ride sweep. I was once told I reminded them of Captain Slow from Top Gear. No lead foot (or hand) here!
    Have a great weekend!
    Brad

    I spent 4+ hours on the phone this morning locating and shipping a fuel pump for the Dakar. Even got to work on my espanol with a guy from Jalisco! Poor guys are stuck on the East Cape for a few extra days, no doubt working on their tans and beer guts. Make sure you shed a few tears for them...:freaky

    Tony performed surgery on the fuel pump and got it going; bad internal connection - the pump part was o.k. Can you believe they were bored with sitting at the beach??? Crazy guys! They're making their way north and should be in San Diego Thursday night. :clap

    Has it really been since February that there was a CO get together? Maybe we should set one up for next Thursday now that the sun is shining and we can sit outside?:freaky
