    Now I need to go Google Elisabetta Canalis. [edit] I just Googled her and Oogled her. Good Lord how did I miss that one? I'd say the Monster is off the market now.

    So I'll get there a little early....

    .....unless this PM is some secret conspiracy which would negate any advantage of me getting there early.

    Guess I'll have to put the cash back in the bank... :lol3

    Looks like I have another two wheel ride tomorrow, on the mountain bike. Should be a nice day for a little workout.

    So, no free beer next meeting? :huh

    The free beer is at the February meet-up. I say we do whatever we have to do to ensure a record turn-out.

    Brandon - you out there? Maybe we can loop in some of the folks from the old Carolina Riders forum?

    Should we take out an ad somewhere? Ideas? Anyone?

    Nice turnout today. Joey, Jon, Loren, Kevin, Ken, Numa and Augie & his girlfriend showed up at Courtney's. Kevin was headed to work and stopped by for a while to talk motorcycles, but couldn't stay for lunch or the ride. Joey ate lunch with us and then headed home to caress Elisabetta. The rest of us went for a nice little ride led by Loren and then Augie -- making a loop through some back roads and then back around to Clover.

    Pieeye and I rode back to Union County together and I stopped by his house to check out his DR-650. If any of you are interested, his DR is in very good condition and is very nicely equipped!

    Bikes at Courtney's.

    Ok ok I'm just kidding. I'll split it with you. Nice of you to make the offer and I want in on that action - will help make up for me missing December and January.

    I don't have it listed anywhere yet which makes the chances of it selling pretty slim. But if someone local heard about it and the numbers were right I'd probably let it go.

    Looks like a great ride you all had on New Years' Day. I definitely would have joined you if I could have. I was busy sight-seeing at our nation's capitol this week.

    Would anyone be interested in a ride next weekend? I'd like to get in one more ride before the Broxton Bridge ride (in 2 weeks). I will probably be busy coaching a hockey game Saturday morning, but I will be free otherwise. I should know for sure by Tuesday.

    The forecast is probably only slightly better than a guess at this point, but it is looking like it will be warmer, with rain on Saturday and less rain on Sunday.

    Are we taking a dirt ride? I'd be interested either Sat or Sun afternoon. Where we going? Think Matt will lead us around again?
