    Okay, I figured out which bike to ride...now what jacket shall it be. Does it have to match my boots? Noob's have so many things to think about! Girl friend already squirrel $100 bucks out of me so she can go to the beach. I guess it would be 200 if I was married!

    I don't have to figure out what bike to ride, only got 1 plated, but.....dirt gear, street gear??

    No it doesn't have to match your boots:D

    I'm wearing my MX boots, pants, knee/shin guards, helmet, goggles. But considering wearing my street mesh jacket? But I am torn because I like the impact protection of my MX body armor,but on the ride up there I would hate to not have the abrasion protection on the pavement.

    I actually wore both earlier today body armor under the street jacket. But my shoulders felt like I was an NFL lineman

    I was thinking along the same lines myself....

    I'm glad to see I'm not just being a girl wondering what to wear...:rofl

    Yeah I know its probably a bit anal but I just don't want to be caught out without the right protective gear when I have spent the money on both :)

    After I was on the bike I was not that uncomfortable earlier today so maybe I will just wear both again until I get to SCD then Ill remove the street jacket and put it in my bags.

    I'm normally a photo hound but I have discovered with being a super noob I am always in the back which doesn't give me time to take photo's by the time I catch up everyone is ready to leave! :rofl

    I usually trade jacket for pressure suit when we get to dirt if it's getting hot (and it will tomorrow!) Bring plenty of water along. We usually cool off in a couple water crossings, but it looks like Joel spared you guys THIS time! Welcome to the group. I'll be the slow one back with Joel! (sorry Joel!)

    Will be great to meet you guys. Wish I had done this months ago, of course I'll be moving to SD right after this which will make the weekend rides harder for me unless I'm up visiting family.

    I'm wearing my normal pink chiffon evening gown with my black 6" pumps.

    Yes, Joel...it's the one that's slit all the way up the side so you can just barely see my G-string to show that I'm just nasty enough, the way you like it.:evil

    Got home 3:30, this was the most expensive ride I ever had. Hate you Artboy.... :becca ....I stop by a store to get an inner tube to replace the one I sold to the poor KTM 950 rider stuck in the parking lot off AFH with a pinch tube, sooooo, I ended up getting knee braces after having the looooooong discussion :bash at Newcombs.

    Uploading the pics, mostly so so, but got some interesting ones.

    It was a pleasure seeing Jaynen survive and got his bike dusty. Hope he made it to his MSF school. Sorry Jason, my fault, owe you a few sweep.

    Same with Sopascat, glad to see you on the trail. Hope to see you more.

    reBarman and RRuuger good to have more cool guys in the community. Easy ride and nice lunch. Of course, the regulars like artboy, lepermasia, and sawzall rob were there too, to speed up the pace :pierce

    7:30am at the usual place, 8 riders total and waiting for the 2 that no sho
