    Well...with ALL due respect...:fyyff you guys...:lurk

    I wish I could'a been with ya.

    My son could NOT stop talking about meeting all you guys. He really felt like a big shot seeing you guys off. He was exhausted from getting up at 4:30 am and went to bed a hour and a half early. :bore

    Can't wait till 'next' year.

    How were the boots Geordie?

    I was a bit hesitant about coming to this ride because I don't really like riding in big groups and as someone posted earlier, this wasn't a big group, this was a stampede! Incredible that Bob was the only minor victim today and that the flats didn't factor in as burdens.

    This was an excellent ride. Thanks for everyone who made it so. I'm down for this being an annual run.

    Now, who was it that got video of me busting my ass? :D

    Great ride BIG-E and all. It was great to meet all of you and I hope to ride with all of you again soon.

    Tomorrow should be a great ride also.

    PS. Next time let's see if we can find a few more rocks!

    Guys, great ride today, only wish I could have convinced others to turn around and do the loop back to the cars!!!

    I was the one with the helmet cam. I got some "oops". Go to youtube and type in: usafric1 Like NS I am in the process of uploading them. More to follow.

    Cheers to all, great day with lots of fun. Thanks to all for the zip ties, wire and tools. Got to Go AZ in time to get a look at the micro fish and then off to Lowes and they had everything I needed. Ready to go tomorrow it will be nice to be able to use the bars a bit more.

    Meet is at the back gate to my house at N 99th Ave and Hedge Hog. Kickstands up at 9am. We are planning on doing a route to one of the mines and then into Wickenberg for lunch and back home via a different route. Nightstalker is our guide. Anyone that wishes to join is welcome looks like 6 to 8 right now.

    Thanks for the donuts Saturday morning, Garthe. A truly noble gesture to come all the way out even though you weren't riding!

    Hey 4Play...some of your friends came to visit last night. Must have been the fact I was too tired to even take my bike off the truck and it was like a calling card to them.

    Your welcome...:thumb I've been soooo frustrated with not riding because of my foot injury taking forever to heal, being out there with you guys was VERY therapeutic for me.

    Until you ALL pulled away and then I had to get back into the cage and go home :bluduh .

    Jim, you were truly missed on the trail but it was great to see you and meet your little guys yesterday. There will be plenty more riding in the future so get the foot in shape and let's give it a spin. :clap
