Ma$$holes Ride Tomorrow

Hey guys,

I figure since it's gonna be wicked nice tomorrow we should all meet up for a ride. Maybe head out to a couple roads in my hometown for a little twisty action, do a little cruisin' and take in the nice weather, then grab some food or something and hang out.

Let me know what you guys think.

I am thinking we can meet in Boston around noon time and leave from there. Chime in for if you can come and if you have any other ideas/preferences.

As an aside, I think our next ride we should try to do this:
rt 78 trip
It's a little bit of a hike to get out there, but I've heard it's pretty good twisties. Next time.

I hadn't really thought about it too hard... just figured we'd ride until we decided it was time to go get some food.

You could always join and then peel off at some point if you gotta leave.

That's cool man... let's try to make sure we get a ride or two in before you leave, though. When is that again? The 2nd?

Tell her you have twisties to tame, she'll understand...

As I said above, I was thinking noon time or something like that we could meet, but we can shift the time around, especially if it's just going to be me, you, curtis, and gino (and I'll invite my squid buddy Andrew again probably too). Black Mamba's bike is broken and she said her sister might not be down cuz her BF was in for the weekend, so it might be just our lil crew again, assuming tater's bike is still broken.

I replied in another thread, but in case you missed it, I can't make this one. I had a minor accident and am waiting on a couple of parts to come in. My bike is on a small (hopefully tiny) vacation.

DiamondDall's boyfriend is up for the week, so I don't think she'll be riding, but I'll let her know about it.

The family that rides together, stays together.

Oh, that's fine. You can always join up next time

About the crash... are you alright? How did you crash? What was damaged?

Oh, yeah, I'm fine.

It was just rider error - I was getting ready to lean into a right curve and saw sand. Sand seriously freaks me out, so I went to slow down (upright at the time, not leaning yet) and grabbed too much brake. The front wheel locked and sent me flying off it, superman style.

I was more upset about the bike, since it had yet to be dropped. The usual stuff - the left mirror broke off, the shifter bent, the footpeg broke. I ordered:

- new mirror
- new footpeg
- new shifter
- new upper left fairing piece (I'm anal, I'm not looking at scratches on my bike)
- frame sliders (a couple of weeks too late , but at least they'll be on now)

My body hurt for a couple of days, but I was wearing full gear and had no injuries or scrapes at all. Couple of bruises.

The funny thing about riding is, even when your confidence is pretty high, you can be humbled real quick.

The family that rides together, stays together.

Dude I got stuck in it too. F&*kin soaked.

Anyways... since it's just going to be the four of us, what works for everyone? I initially said in Boston, but we can meet somewhere else if you guys want to.

Mike that's cool... I will remember to invite you next ride we have... and p.s., fedex has always sucked a fat one for me compared to ups and usps. Terrible service. I feel your pain.

Let's just meet up in Boston at noon... same place as last time... near my apt corner of beacon and exeter. We can do a run up and down the riverway... then take rt 9 or comm ave out west to my hometown and do some lizard runs... get some food mid afternoon...

Any gripes with that?
