    We never did set a date for this. Still interest out there?

    (Oh yeah, and there's the little issue of fish and Baldy owing lunch at Alice's for our show-down....)

    Maybe we should combine the two.

    Dates?

    You betcha! I would really enjoy riding for your camera. Hell, you even made fish look good! (Fortunately, he was wearing a helmet.) :rofl

    I already bought lunch for fish, as I promised I would. It's time for him to pony up. :D

    If we meet on a Friday, I'm forced to ride home in THE WORLD'S WORST TRAFFIC (tm). A Saturday might be nice, but I realize I'm just one vote, so whenever...

    And I really look forward to meeting you.

    Shots in the morning light will look best, so I'd suggest shooting first, then eating a late breakfast. Saturday works best for me. Friday would be okay just for lunch, but the photos will take some time.

    Both of the next two Saturdays look good to me. Baldy, do you want to specify a Saturday? I'm pretty flexible up until I leave town for the Solstice holidays.

    Are you interested in two-up shots? The 'jette is willing to come along.

    You obviously haven't ridden on I5 through East LA in the afternoon.


    If I can swing the schedule, I'm IN! :thumb
    Besides, if the stridazoid is gonna be there with his bbq sauce bike, you'll need one of a purer color to cancel it out :lol2

    Not to make matters too complicated, given that photos take a bunch of time, and lunch doesn't. Can the photo thing be on an early Saturday morning , and the lunch be on Friday? That way Jim gets to buck traffic twice as much. :):

    Oh shit, I wish Baldy would just picked a day without asking. This is not a democracy....

    As a matter of fact, I have. And you're right, it's worse.

    My bad. :(:

    A week from Saturday works best for me. I can pick a spot and we can meet there. If anyone wants to hang for a late breakfast, fine, or they're free to split. Or does afternoon (when the sun is good again) work better for people's schedules?

    As you might expect, given fish's response, the 'jette and I prefer dawn's early light.

    A week from Saturday, right? Only question is morning or afternoon. We have 1 vote for each.
