    Especially if I am there. I am certainly not ready for any real adventurous riding, just some easy pavement to remember what it is like to be on 2 wheels again.

    Forecast still says in the 40s but cloudy and chance of rain. Still somewhat promising.

    Ahhh, you guys are killing me! We have family here until around noon, couldn't make Rochester b-4 3:00 :cry and that's if I gear up and go as soon as they leave....

    If you head West, let me know! Sounds like a great day to ride, no matter what :clap.

    Saturday might be a better day for riding, but I'm planning that day for a front suspension upgrade on my R80ST.

    Sunday is riding day. At least for me. No, wait! Saturday, too...I'll need to test the new fork cartridge emulators! :clap

    There was a lot of that crap about 60 miles in during the Vegas2Reno race... coupled with no wind it would just hang in the air and you couldn't see more than a couple feet in front at times. I saw one of those side-by-side ATVs hit a stuck ATV in a could of it. The driver didn't even realize he had hit something so just hit the gas to try to power through. Luckilly the rider of the ATV wasn't on it at the time.

    So yes, silt sucked but luckily I was able to ride off to the side of the road, rougher but much more solid. Doesn't look like that is an option in this case!

    Yeah those silt beds were brutal. There has been some impressive riding maneuvers filmed this year. It's been a great race so far. :clap

    A big city doctor visits a yurt dweling tribe full of men, he asks "How do you guys relieve your sexual tension?"

    "Simple, just come down to the river tomorrow and we'll show you."

    The next day the doctor shows up and sees a group of men near a donkey. One man says "Since you're our guest you get to go first."

    The doctor not wanting to go against custom starts to kiss, then proceeds to have sex with the donkey. Then a man in the group asks "Are you almost done Doc? We need the donkey to cross the river in order to get to the tribe of women."

    :lurk

    The ride is on today. It's a bit foggy this morning, but warm enough...at least above the melting point of solid water. The weatherman says the fog should evaporate around lunchtime.

    We're leaving Goffstown at 10 AM. Street ride to Rochester. Wild Willy's on 125 in Rochester around Noon for lunch. Meet us there if you're coming from a different direction and fancy a ride today.

    As you were...
