    Inmate IHF (wanker) sent me a track to Buzzard's Roost. I'd never been there before so I had to check it out. Nice twisty roads to get there...

    Three weeks in a hard cast, three in a walking cast. Ditched the walking cast last week...no running, jumping, or sexy high heels until the end of December. (Yeah, whatever!!!).

    Ankle is still a little swollen but I can finally bend the big toe that I dislocated, and popped back in, so now I can pick up the dirty clothes from the floor!

    Raised the front forks on the bike so now the suspension is back to stock. New chain and sprockets, new turn signals...the front faring needs a little band-aid but other than that she's good and I was riding the day the hard cast came off.

    yup, that's called the RDV :deal


    j/k that is an all inclusive rally and it requires a lot of prep and work, so I don't think I can swing both.

    But..... if somebody else would like to do the legwork, I will certainly attend :D
    Bueller, Bueller, Dave, Shane, Kenny, Hunter?????? anybody?

    :lol3 I should have seen this post before our flurry of PM's last night.

    Alright guys: Wouldn't it be nice if Silke could just kick back, relax and enjoy at least one event without having to actually coordinate the thing? The RDV is enough for anyone to do, so let's put our heads together and come up with a plan for continuing to have our fall get together while relieving Silke of some pressure.

    The thing practically runs itself anyway, how hard can it be? :rofl

    I'm in, spring and/or fall, but I think one is enough. I had said I would keep up with a new thread, but I would be more than happy to see you be point man.
