    I spend the weekends that I do get off of work with my husband, otherwise my rotating schedule gives my several weekdays off, but no one rides on weekdays. I am also limited by my KTM 950, and limited but growing skills.

    Sounds nice. I plan to pull the plug in couple years or so, get a bigger bike, and join you bigger bike folks on some longer-range stuff, including weekdays of course. Nice RRs!

    Bigger bike for me means no riding alone. It is all I can do to pick the thing up in a parking lot. :lol3 Be nice to have a smaller bike for exploring solo, but I have other monetary priorities. :deal
    I keep an eye on this thread, the bay area and Chico thread, and GCDSR, but have only made it to one ride in the last year. It is all about the timing.....

    StuInFH,
    Be at your place at 8:00 am as usual.
    Feeling better, so th pace should be a little better than last time.
    The Ladies bike is ready as always!

    I ride solo 20 or so times for every time I ride with someone else. My riding buddy is made of sugar so nothing there until it's 60° or so and dry.

    I like the wet roads, paved or not. Just not in heavy rain as my pants leak like a sieve.

    It's kinda dodgy in the winter riding alone with the cold and dark coming so early in the day. A breakdown or a getoff could get interesting.

    Problem is my schedule doesent allow any ride planning. It's short notice and I go for a ride the next day. I'll try to get a ride in soon as it's been a cople weeks. I'll post it up, and if there's any takers great. If not, oh well.

    I usually just figure everyone needs a day or two notice, so I don't even bother posting anything. I'm sure that might be the deal here with others. I'm game for a ride if I'm not working, so post up if you want company. I only need a couple hours notice at times, so if you wake up and want to ride, throw it up here and see if you get any bites!
    Obviously the night before would be best as far as getting any takers.


    Have a good ride tomorrow guys!

    I farmed my son out, he's spending the night at a friends house. So....I'm going for a short-ish ride in the morning but not sure where, maybe Georgetown, or also thinking about Yankee Jim's and Shirtail Canyon.

    Let me know if you want to ride with. Prolly going to layer up and leave fair oaks around 8-9 as I need to be back before 2pm.

    We did, thanks. The four of us waited a bit until it warmed up to freezing and took off for parts known and some unknown. The hoar frost was near knee-high in places and there were some puddles, so conditions were better (perfect) last week, but the company was great and we had a good time.

    The Dead Fly - good food - long waits at times.
    Karen is entertaining.

    Any time. I am doing a short ride from my place Saturday.
    Have dinner plans - otherwise I would be in Forest Hill again.

    You live near Plymouth?
    I am in Mt. Aukum, but in Plymouth a lot as my Jeep rebuild project is there at a friends house.

    I could meet you Saturday if you would like.

    I ride a beater XR650L, but it can go almost anywhere.

    Riding out our way is not the best right now - but there is enough to stay entertained.

    Saturday fell through - sorry.
    I will be out on the bike in the woods all day.

    Let's figure another day.
    Are you open to Pizza after work in Plymouth?

    I drive through there every day.
