    Are there meet ups in Tucson? I realize group rides can be sketchy, but would still like to meet some locals. ;)

    In theory, we meet at the Red Garter on Speedway on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. So this coming Thursday is a meet up night. I'm planning to be there. Finally have a bike to ride again.

    WTF......HoosierTrailmaster really did give it up......I guess he shouldn't say things in front of the wife that he can't get out of :lol3.

    At the least he should check in. To my Tucson friends, tell Allyn hello if you hear from him.

    Hey, HTM was at the last RG meeting a week ago. He is still alive in the group. Maybe in a few months he will admit his addiction to his wife and give her an ultimatum, which I am sure will only make him a single guy instead of married guy.

    We all seem to go through cycles..( Pun intended). Due to Allyn's inability to ride within his body's age related healing processes, too many broken bones and bikes has caused a certain level of non-riding capabilities (aka Wifey).

    I, having sold all my Dual sport bikes has left me only my 2 Ventures. I hope soon to get another KLR650 and be back on the dirt.

    Once Allyn's standards puts him on a less demanding, more comfortable and ridable bike for an old guy , I'm sure he will be back... ( if the divorce doesn't wipe him out) :deal

    Hi All, Yeah I know been a long time since I posted. I do watch this post though. I see Allyn's getting some attention now. I'm sure he'll be back on a bike soon, just need to find one he can stick with and learn it's quirk's. He's a good rider, maybe then he'll stop taking dirt naps.
    I hope everyone else is doing good down there. I do miss you guys. I don't seem to ride half as much up here in Albuquerque than I did in Tucson, even though the weather is 10-15 deg cooler.

    Last time I checked Thursday is 4th of July...I doubt the show rate will be very high. Normally we meet at 6:30PM.

    Hi Alllyn,

    Yup, I didn't think about it being the 4th when I posted. My wife is out of town so I may still show if there's enough interest.

    Who's in??? :deal

    I'm waiting for some essentials to arrive for my spanking-new-to-me 90 dr350 so I can play in the new waters.. at least should get new pads to eliminate that grinding sound when I put my foot down. They're supposed to brake, not break I'm told. :rofl

    I Would love to get some mud on my shiny new gear!
