The thread that he put up not too long ago about riding a group of riders that humbled him, etc. Well that was me this weekend. When DJ and I ride together, we know what each other's gonna go, we hang with each other on the straights as well as the twisty's. Ive been riding a long time now, not always sportbikes though, but still, riding nonetheless. This weekend, the WOS guys really showed us alittle thing or two. Dyno,ULOOZ, & Gas Man are some pretty accomplished riders, to say the least. Hittin corners hot left n right, & nearly leaving a vapor trail on the straights! I had a blast, there's no doubt, and I learned alot just riding with them, as well as talking with them. Hearing their stories, talking about WOS, and bikes/riding in general.

I thought of myself as a pretty OK rider, been doing it since I was seventeen, everything from ATC's all the way thru streetbikes. Read as much as I can, and gleen every bit of knowledge from riders as possible.

I'll admit, I definately felt behind the times, for lack of a better term, this weekend. Be humbled can be a interesting experience, to say the least. But thats not too say the WOS guys were anything less than the perfect guests in our town. Very respectful of us, our families, and our town, fun guys to be around, good conversation, and some great riding...btw the weather cooperated nicely this weekend..couldnt ask for anything more.

I know what I gotta do before deals gap this spring/summer for the rally. 1. get set of full leathers & boots; Dyno had a sweet new joe rocket 1 piece suit he broke out this weekend when he got here, and chris was in a rocket jacket/pants. a track day b/4 then, stevenmd, you'll have to hook me up in the spring man! :cool: 3. keep on reading/posting on TWF and pumpin u guys for info on the things I need to work on.'re boys represented in a Stellar manner! You should be proud of em!!!

Thanks again WOS for coming down to visit our area, and for the rides, and great fun that was had this weekend. Wouldnt have changed a thing! :dthumb:

I agree with you all, and I didnt go above my limits on the twisties, I stayed in the back and just followed thier tail lights as best I could. They were great to ride with, and wouldnt have changed it for the world, I really did learn alot.

I have no problems going fast, its such an adrenaline rush for me, so keeping up with them on the highway was no big deal, we all took turns leading and it was all good.

Plus the fact about the leathers, yes, since I didnt have them, I was alittle extra cautious, more than usual, since we were up in the back twisties in lancaster that I wasnt too familier with, couple that with all the horse n buggies, cows, and shiet (literarlly) on the road, and that was reason enuff to play it safe.

The important thing is, they had fun, and I had fun, and we got to hang out as well...and in the end, having fun is really all that matters.

thanks stevenmd, I'll be lookin forward to that track time/riding with ya..

Jeeps84, thanks for the pics of the leathers. whats the size, etc. of them... PM if you like!

Sorry for the rant but, I had to say that!
I just hate to see riders go down for riding over there head. :nono:
