Winter Death Race 2007, NORTH BAY: Sun, Jan 14th

Leaving Farley's at 9am for a 9:30 arrival at Alice's followed by the usual favorite routes on the peninsula. Lunch on the coast, possible wheelie clinic in the city afterwards.

This ride is intended to have a quick pace, meaning if you've been on a DML multi-group ride and you weren't in the fast group, this'll be a good ride to skip. That said, this ride is not a rite of passage, egofest or a pissing contest, but a healthy, spirited run that gets your blood pumping a bit. As always, we will ride within our abilities and as conditions allow , just faster than usual .

Post up if you want in. I'll keep this post updated through the week.

In:

Tigre
Desmoquattro
Mostrobelle
Enzo
datv
Jammen (Alice's)
drivetrain
Itsasickness
Rick T

Maybe:

DrunkenMonkey
Michael Moore
brother of Enzo
Furious
Mickey
Angel & friends

Time to try riding the bike with the suspension (nearly) set up properly.

I'm needing a venue in which to break in my new tires...and I don't have a speedo right now, so this ride sounds perfect.

If my bike's back from Desmoto by then, I'm in.

No longer hanging out here, sorry.

In!

Idea: let's meet at MotoJava in SF. Central location, easy to get on the superslab to Alice's, and good coffee. Now if I can convince them to open early enough

Moto Java sounds fine. Good location, if nothing else.

As an aside -- let's keep safety in-mind on this moree-spirited ride:
-Check tire pressures
-Check brakes
-Check brake lights and turn signals
-Maintain longer following distances on ride

Cheers,
Tiggy

And don't chase tail. It's dangerous.

Ouch...I need to get the rear brakes on the S4R done. Not sure what's going on. But I don't exactly have the expertise to pull that off.
