    I am still planning to do a Sunday ride. It will be a great one for ya Dave. Not too hard...but enough challenge and some food in the middle. Probably won't be a huge crowd, but still ill be fun. I am thinking of riding my 990 to make it a little bit of a challenge. Depends on whether we get a lot of moisture or not.

    If I get enough of my bathroom torn apart in prep for a remodel and the fuel range required is <100 miles (stock wr250r tank) I'll try to make the sunday ride.

    Sunday we will meet at the Shell station on Ajo Way just West of Kinney Road kick stands up at 9AM. There is plenty of room to park and it is close to get back on I-10. Ajo is off I-19.

    I'm hoping to meet/ride with you all on Sat. for a little bit anyway. I've got to cut the ride short so I can get home and go to Supercross. Sunday sounds great too. I'd like to go check out some new stuff on the 990! :clap

    Well CRAP!, I came home with a fever & chill. Took a while to get warm enough to type. I'll see the doc tomorrow, but I'm not too hopefull at this point. I sent a text to Big E so he could arrange another ride out there & he went to the Doc today with simular symptoms....

    Yea, except for the forecast low of 21* and a high of 49* :eek1. I'll have to see if I'm up for the early morning ride from Green Vly to 3 Points.

    Brad...I am guessing 10 or so...people keep coming and going so I am not sure. I thought I had, Buddy and Big-E but they look like maybe's, Don bagged out, still have Terry Slowred, Cathy and Skip. The guy from Marana. I will ride with whomever shows up as long as it doesn't snow. It will warm up and you know that ride will make you work up a sweat.

    Allyn,

    The cold front moving in fri looks bad. Just wondering if we could push the start to 0930-1000 to give it a chance to warm a bit.
