My 500 is rideable again???? So I’m good for whatever you got.
Eating at Jack’s or Burger King?
Collins like isn’t a big place.
I'll come up with a plan tomorrow. Any suggestions or requests?
It will be cold in the morning so we'll start late and it won't be a real long ride.
It's at Los Reyes Mexican restaurant. I've been through Collinsville a time or two but have not been to that restaurant.
We'll just do the usual tomorrow. Shell in Ardmore at 11. It will be a dual sport ride but nothing really hard so a big adventure bike will be fine.
See you there!!
Win, which bike are you riding?
Might be more interesting to guess what Rich will be riding.
It may be too cold for this old man!
If you have a truck or trailer, haul your bike there. By 11 it will have warmed up some.
I wish I could, my phone says it will be 41 at 11AM. I will have to pass, my china bike doesn't have enough juice to run heated jacket or grips.
You boys have a great time!
I got out about 2:00 today. Had about forty minutes without heated gear and in jeans. It wasn’t too bad.
I’m going to put my CRF on the hitch carrier in the morning to avoid the cold and boring ride up. Parking at casa de #thinwater.
lol!! I’ll be @Thinwater around 10 on the old worn out Brozz.
Can’t wait for some ride pics!
Evidently I have been too wrapped up in work this week and missed the entire conversation. Starting with my center stand "demonstration" before the ride, it was a great day. Anyway, here's the GPX file from the trip. Looking forward to another great ride today.
I envy this ride planning. Yesterday was +4c and January 22 is the longest I’ve ever gone still in shorts.
Today? Try minus 17c and snow. The party’s over.
Edit: now -20 with a windchill of -28. Yikes.
I got on the road a little before 10 this morning. It was around 40 degrees. It was chilly but I was bundled up pretty good. No heated gear and no wind protection on the KLX but I wasn't that cold at the end of the 45 minute ride to Ardmore. The secret is to wear stuff that keeps the wind out.
I was expecting to have anywhere from 3 to 6 riders but we ended up with 8.
We had 5 regulars and 3 riders who were riding with us for the first time. I don't know their forum names or if they have forum names. Their real names were Mike, Mike and I forgot the third.
One had a bike none of us had seen in the flesh.
We talked a while then got on the road.
We did the usual, a lot of paved goat trails as well as some dirt roads......and of course a couple of tunnels.
One of the dirt roads.
We stopped for a break.
I mentioned that we had stopped here a couple of times before for around 20 minutes and no traffic had come by.
It must have been the local rush hour because 3 pickups came by while we were stopped
After the break I rode ahead and set up to get everyone's pic.
Rich on his Brozz.
@jrm927 on his BMW.
MiKe#1 on his DR650.
Mike#2 on his T7.
Mike#2's son on a Himalayan.
Stephen on his Himalayan.
Randy on his CRF250L
But does the T-7 have a remote start like the Brozz? It's the little things
