    Let's just say it's red, it's Italian, and it's got attitude.


    And you did see the duc, at Batfink's. It left a three foot burn-out in the lawn.

    Regarding the Hurricane Ridge ride on Saturday (7-9-05) Here's what's posted on the Sound Rider calendar - page 3.

    7/9 Victory MC/Hurricane Ridge
    Depart Edmonds to Kingston, 10:00 ferry, stop at Safeway, Port Angeles for fuel, then to HR; Park fee $5.00, there is a snack bar at the top. Call for weather update; rain date Sun. 10 July
    Contact: Joe Honoluu Phone: 425 513-5868 Email: Joehonolulu@aol.com Website:
    http://www.

    I wanted a bit of confirmation, so I asked:
    Hi Joe,
    I’m confused. The date in Soundrider says Saturday, July 9. Then it says rain date: Sunday, July 10. Is that supposed to mean that the ride is scheduled for Saturday and will be rescheduled for Sunday if Saturday is rainy? I’d be interested in a Saturday ride, but my Sunday is booked up.

    Joe Replied:
    You're correct, if it's too dangerous to ride due to inclement weather, it is rescheduled for Sunday July 10th.


    I think I heard someone say "Bandit"....and I love nice hardware as much as the next guy.

    Crap dude. Im sorry to hear that. Ive been working on my chops on the DRZ so as to not hold you up on the next DS ride we go on....


    I think Im actually going to leave Bandit home and maybe get up around 6am and head for Naches to do some recon of the area for the upcoming run.
    Im not sure what state the trails are in so I'd like to check some of them... Might trailer down there so I can save my arse stamina for the rocks.

    Tony??? :ear

    The only pain I remember from the ride is taking a dip in the sub zero river to wash off the layers of sweat and dust, wasn't a second or two after taking that icy plunge I was losing and eventually lost my manhood --thank goodness for camp fires to thaw them, it, those little buggers out.

    We'll I feel a bit obliged to check out the trails...BUT.....depending on how that goes and who is interested I'd do a street run.

    Stosh - maybe if there's not thumper action we can do the 410 run, recon the area and then cross back around to the south closer to rainier??? Hmmmm.......damn....too much riding to do...not enough time :lol3
