    Anyone want to get out for a couple 3 hours before the Bat party on Saturday? I have been slammed with gradutaion stuff for over a week and need to air the webs. Dropping off the out-laws at the airport in the morning- then good to go.

    Slab, dirt - the fink's lawn - it really doesnt matter.

    Enjoy

    I would love to join you but must decline. I will be adventuring in the wonderful land of costco, climbing the giant aisles of various treasures looking for giant bags of burger buns. Ahhhhh the pinnacle of capitalism.....

    I might be in for this! It depends what I can work out with the lady though. I would be more in the mood for a dirt-ish ride becasue I currently have the knobbies/dirt gearing on the DRZ.

    I would love this - a couple of strikes against me. I have to drop off the out-laws at the pier in Seattle in the morning - then you blokes are all on the thumpers and here I am on the GS - so not sure how I can fit in to the schedule. No knobbies - blah, blah, blah
    I will keep my eyes on this (since I started it) and see what pans out.

    Enjoy

    well it would be much easier for me to meet in the Monroe/goldbar/sultan area because I will be coming from Bellevue/redmond. If we want to pick a time to meet in Monroe...say the "Buzz Inn Steak House" at 10 that would probably work better for me. The Buzz Inn is JUST east of where 522 meets Hwy 2 on the South side of Hwy 2.

    OR if the trails you have in mind start from the Reiter Pit area we could just meet in the pit...

    Are we going to put any weather constraints on this?

    Don't speed, follow too closely, or pass on the right (in the shoulder) on HWY2 in Monroe or officer Richards will have words with you. DAMHIK

    So, what's the final decision here? Buzz Inn in Monroe at 10 or ?? Reiter at 11:30 or ??

    Personally, I'd like to start a bit earlier, but will defer to the masses and go with da flow.

    How about 9 at Buzz Inn? Realistically, it'll be 11+ before we're actually riding at Reiter. 3 hours of riding puts the sun pushing 3, and the Bat-party starts then, iirc...imho then it's good to show up fashionably late, but without missing the grubbing. We can all just show up dirty and be reviled for multiple reasons :evil

    Or whenever....gonna be a great day, plenty of light at 5AM :eek1

    Gotta pass. Dropping off the in-laws at the ship docks at noon - So I will head to the brew fest at St. Edwards to prime the pump for the Bat gig.

    See you there and Enjoy

    OK - I got a trailer lined up. So if I wake up and feel OK Ill be there with bells on. If I feel like crap I'll wait until sunday for my ride. Im planning on being there though. Either way Ill plan on posting in the morning when Im up. Probably between 7 and 7:30am.

    9am at Buzz Inn.

    Stosh - we'll miss ya.


    88' you meeting us there?

    Cheers
