Met up with green98gt and a couple of his buddies for a ride today - what a beautiful day for January... too bad there's still so much sand on the roads.

Anyhow, this was first for me - I hadn't ever met up with anybody through the internet before... So - if you live in the Everett vicinity and want to get together for a group ride (or maybe a few cold ones) post here and we'll get something going.

I'll be down for a ride once I get my girl back together in a month or two. Doing the winter upgrades/mods right now.

Look for Brad, he's out and out I'm sure.

I never lived downtown, but I work in Redmond and have spent a bit of time in Seattle due to grad. school at SPU.

Maybe a massive King/Sno County Monster ride will have to wait for the weather to improve.

Post here if you want to ride in the mean time.

How about a meeting somewhere farther north so those of us from Bellingham( 3-4 of us) can get in on this.

The ride I went on with green98gt took us to Edison... if we hadn't taken so long with lunch, we were thinking about heading up Chuckanut... Chuckanut without any traffic is one of my favorite rides... very scenic, lots of turns, and Bob's Burgers waiting at the end in Fairhaven.

We're talking about trying to ride this coming Sunday if the weather cooperates... The good turns on Highway 9 between Arlington and Big Lake were still really sandy this past Sunday, while the roads just south/southeast of Stanwood were looking good.

Personally, I'm willing to ride solo for up to an hour to meet up for a group ride... I can't speak for anyone else, though...

I'm down to get something going... I've been out of the loop since like october, but should a clear day about 45 degrees come around, I'm in.

The weather is not looking promising... nothing but rain forecast for the next week.

Somebody post a date/time/location when they want to ride... I'll do the same if the weather clears up...

Can't make it Sunday (Work) but am willing to meet/ride in the future.

We need to organize a Monster meet and greet this spring.

Better yet, what with the crummy weather and all, we should just organize a get-together to meet everybody, swap stories, and plan rides so we can be ready when spring (and the nicer weather) is here.

Would anybody else be up for that? Group rides are a lot more fun when you know who you're riding with.

I think I'd be up for that. Perhaps at a restuarant that we can bring the kids to?

good idea. Cafe Veloce?
Cafe Veloce would certainly get my vote.

I'm not too sure about looking for a kid-friendly place... wouldn't want to scare off the kidless folks.

Cafe Veloce is that the place in Kirkland ? I'd be up for something like that .I could bring the wife and kid . I might have to bring the wife along on one of the rides or more to keep her happy since we bought the bike for her and since learned that she probably won't ever be able to ride it because of a wrist injury .Oh well just the fun of being married.

Another thought would be one of those Champs Carting places. They're a lot of fun, plus there ok for the kids (Stick them infront of the xbox.). Not much for food, but there is beer and soda.
