    Adventure riders come in all different lots...
    Some ride to meet new people
    Some ride to spend time with old friends

    Others are friends who just ride...challenging themselves as well as each other..

    So old friends and new friends...here is a place to coordinate those rides...

    (side note...often the "encouragement" provided by friends is mixed with a few other ingredients (like sarcasm and ribbing))

    Then afterwards we can discuss plans for some riding exercises at my house, doing the dirt road, or just going for a street ride.

    Hopefully I haven't started a new trend...
    I dropped it again when I got home.
    Pulled up in front of the garage...turned the bike off.
    put the kick stand down...apparently half way
    and down we went :muutt

    hopefully I've gotten that out of my system now :D
