I hear a lot of talk about meeting up and going for rides, but I have yet to see any pictures materialize. Now that my bike has been sold and I have only my plastic model of my monster to ride around with my fingers on my desk :'(, I'm relying on all of you to provide lives full of riding for me to live vicariously through ;D. And more important, pics of the bikes on the rides (except for Hiero, I've seen plenty pics of his bike [laugh] [cheeky]).

So anyway, how about you guys go on some rides and take some pics, eh? Please?

I guess this is the time of year where people ride less due to the weather and other holiday obligations. I guess I'm just going to have to take the dremmel to my plastic monster and start modding it.

yea...this time of the year is tough.
between work/family/holidays & shopping for all the above it is tough to commit. throw in the sunny one minute & cold & wet the next minute conditions it all adds up to a really big pile of bad excuses.
Guilty as charged your Honor.
I'd love to get together with my fellow SA ducatistas.
maybe even start a little club with secret handshakes and all....well, not really.
But it would be cool to meet everyone & see who's who.
Maybe after the first of the year we could plan for a group deal,
either ride or a weeknite meet for coffee.
I know for alot of you (myself included), a 45 minute to 1 hour window on a weeknite is easier to schedule than 4 hours on a weekend.

step 1. someone pick a spot and name a date. I'm a slacker with a tendency to procrastinate....so don't leave it up to me.

hey kevin, i'm the guy that brought the screwed up throttle cable in (ricky). i usually take long rides on sats though since i usually throw bbq's every sunday for the fam. i've been riding by myself, but i ride with a friend of mine now since he just bought a cruiser, well we leave together and meet up i guess. yeah, interested parties should meet after the holiday b-s and see what's goin on.
disclaimer: i'm a newbie.

whos your brother? if people are interested in a ride lets start planning one. im willing to meet anywhere. as far as a pace goes, im not worried if people are new to the sport. its good for beginners to ride with experience people. my only condition is that the meeting spot have coffee.

Maybe we can plan a meet up in Blanco or San Marcos to make it easy on both Austin and SA riders? There are plenty of good roads in between there.
sounds like a good idea to me. [thumbsup]
