Had a great time riding with everyone today, it was gorgeous once it warmed up a bit! Just on our way through ohio on way to races and thought would say hi and had lots of fun.

I made it back in 1 hour 25 min. Thanks Pickle for showing me a quicker way back to 96! The ride was awesome. It was worth the long ride to get over there. Nice twisty roads in that area.

So the ride on Saturday was tons of fun! Super (from WOS) was a great leader and despite my 1st half issue with pushing wide in my right-handers (sorted it out in the 2nd half) it was a nice ride. Here are some pics, I'll try to identify some of the TWFers in the pics...

At the meeting spot (GRZ750S is in the red and black jacket and I'm in the leathers with a star on my speed hump right next to him, pickle is on the far left with the hoodie under his jacket)


This is right after GasMan arrived on the chop, and you can just see Pippi's awsome Devil exhaust on the Gix 1k right behind the chop (Ed and me in the pic again)


More TWFers/WOS peeps: GasMan in all black (including chaps ) and sunglasses. The infamous Twisty is just to the left of Gas in the silver leather suit and black hat, and his lady Pippi is in the flowered hat. I don't know the guy in the foreground.

Thanks Nee! The leathers are actually the Hein Gericke 'Celtic' suit. I got it on eBay from a guy that wore it once and it didn't fit him but since he had worn it at a track day the place he bought it wouldn't let him return it. So I got a suit with an MSRP of $800 for under $200 cuz I was the only bidder and the bidding started at $180. It fits me great as far as I can tell.

Oh wow, that's awesome.... Occasionally I run across some awesome deals, but nothing like THAT!

They're really sharp looking... might just have to keep those in mind if we start doing track days next year.

Yeah he had a crazy busy weekend planned so he actually hasn't been on TWF at all in about 3 days. But I know he has more pics too and so does Pippi so hopefully they'll get around to posting them

Nah Drewpy, noone got held up

And Yeah GR, I knew that going that way would take a nice chunk of the boring freeway part out for ya.

As soon as I saw the first person bust out the camera I was like DOH!!! Forgot the Camera!!! Glad some people had some.
