    Senior moment...but thanks, Zora, you saved me from going on a pointless ride. Though sometimes those are my favorite ones...because the ride is the point, I guess . Tomorrow's a bit more iffy, but still possible. (if I remember ha ha)

    Funny enough, I was just thinking about you recently, Elron.

    Benron took us on a cool roads tour by his house a few weekends ago and we ended up turning on the cemetery road where we did a ride with Cannon years ago and when we stopped there to wait for everyone, you had a little incident with your leg not cooperating.

    Didn't post this to embarrass you, just to let you know we think of you and am glad to hear you're still out and about. :D

    If falling is embarrassing then I'd say most of us are beet red. I remember that day, we were doing Rustic Roads pics as i recall. Was one of my first opportunities to try out my new knee. Found out it buckles real easy.
    The knee and I get along better now, but hey 2 total knee replacements, 1 total hip replacement and nearing the 70 years mark, I'm glad as hell to still be riding. Probably s/b on something lighter than the 990, but it feels so good. No more MX though (ha ha, stopped that about 40 yrs ago).

    A less impromptu garage night this week Wed. 7/5/17. Probably no thunderstorms this time either :D. I'll even try to put the bug net up early to keep the skeeters at bay. Come hang out. Wrenching may happen depending on if the mail lady brings me anything.

    Congrats on the new bike!

    There's no schedule and no official organizer. These things happen when someone speaks up and says "let's go here at this time". We are overdue for sure!

    Should we try for a Tuesday night next week? I propose dinner at the Thirsty Goat at 7pm, just because I think the name is excellent.

    Rocking Rewey fireworks this Saturday night! Small town with an amazingly good fireworks display. I will be there with my better half.

    Rewey, WI town park. It's honestly the most impressive display I've seen outside of the big bang in Milwaukee... But in Rewey you're sitting next to a little League baseball diamond and the fireworks are being launched in the outfield. It's the only fireworks display where I've felt the need to plug my ears.

    Bigjammer,
    Where, if any, are there places to ride in the Wi Rapids area ? I live in Stevens Point. Been busy every weekend this summer working on selling our rental property, but hope to make it up and ride later in the summer
