    Wish i could have made it this past time. Sounds like the seating and such might have been better than the pizza place.

    Since you just recently added me to your mailing list, I didn't get the opportunity to vote on a place/day--it'd already been picked. I'm OK with that. I was merely asking if another day could be added to the meeting times. Fuggetaboutit.

    You said you don't like to yell....sheesh. :eek1

    Yup, I like beer. Don't feel sorry for me. I'm actually a purty happy guy. Don't need your support, just an occasional cold one. :D

    Ray/Dualsport: Sounds like someone already messed with your kit, so ignore my message. I don't need to attend the meetings as long as I get your emails about riding. I hope I get invited to join your group when things start to turn rideable again in the spring. BTW, you already know me as icantdrive55 or....

    Bill, I have tried my best to please everyone. Obviously as the group size grows, not everyones needs can be met.

    Out of 54 people 2 need alcohol or they won't come. One won't eat at a buffet. 2 can't do 3rd Thursday.

    I am officially off the meeting room schedule.

    Here are the requirements I was trying for.

    Items needed are as follows. Central location, private meeting room that we could have for a few hours, No waitress hovering overhead, food available at whatever time someone shows up. No loud TV - band or radio.

    Feel free to take over finding a location, dates and times.
    I can not do the first Tuesday of the month. Other than that I am wide open.
    Golden Corral future dates are now cancelled.

    Let me know when and where.

    I'm going to give the benefit of doubt and say that these were not meant as complaints but as opinions, and that there was no intention of destroying the regular meets that we have now --- which are very much appreciated by those attending!!

    I want to keep what we have and build it up and I really appreciate Ray being the focal point for our group.

    If anybody wants to do the work of setting up additional sessions at alternate settings -- please feel free! Hey, the more meets, the more rides, the more fun.

    Hey all, just checking in. This thread was a good idea! Haven't been able to make it to our monthly gathering but I'm hoping that my schedule will free up soon. Anyway, glad to see everyone.


    P.S. I don't care when or where our meetups are held. If I can make it I will be there.

    So as not to jeopardize the future unity of this group, I've asked Ray to remove my name from the mailing list. Sorry for the trouble, guys. Carry on.

    I can appreciate Ray&#8217;s frustration as I&#8217;ve been in his shoes. However, we don&#8217;t want to throw out the baby&#8230; All the group emails today have said keep the meeting as it is so I plan on being at the GC on Feb 16<sup>th</sup> and I&#8217;ll confirm that the room is still ours.



    I enjoy the diverse personalities on forums (all time fav was &#8220;pink fluffy bunny&#8221; on the Goldwing forum&#8230;until he was banned) and thick skin is always an asset when participating. I trust this minor bump in the road doesn&#8217;t scare or turn off people who are thinking about joining our group. Hopefully no one leaves and hopefully this thread doesn&#8217;t become a five person clique. (Now I return to my efforts at world peace)



    I&#8217;m a picture guy&#8230; Would love to see what others are riding.

    Oh yeah, and I vote we shorten our group name to Cincinnati Area Dual Sport or CADS :wink:.


    I know, I know, Ray says we're not a club, but we sure are bickering like one. :lol3


    Could be worse guys, we could meet at Bike night at Quaker Steak and lube.


    I am flexible on days and location, my schedule changes so much that I just have to play it by ear. Anyone have any thoughts? Golden Corral is still OK for me too, I've just been busy the last couple of times.

    Glad you checked in Dave. Enjoyed your thread on the Gap. There was discussion at the last meeting of a trip to the Gap/Cherohala Skyway/Tellico area.

    Thanks for taking over Bob.
    Yesterday sucked.
    My dream bike deal fell through, a guy accused me of selling a stolen bike then the crap over choosing the wrong meeting place. I had enough when I was called a short sighted pompous ass. :huh

    I'll try to get a picture of my latest "keeper" bike posted later.
