Howdy friends and neighbors! Well, I'm back from my latest stint aboard one of Uncle Sam's finest warships. To say the least I'm jonesing a bit for a ride. Soooo, who's up for a rampage this Sunday? I've got a couple of guys lined up from work whom I haven't had the pleasure of riding with yet. The meeting will be at the same Bat time, same Bat channel. I'm thinking about a longish ride to the desert and Palomar.

Also, there's really meaningful talk about moving up the deployment date of my ship to something that's really soon. Potentially every ride could be my last for quite some time. I really look forward to having a last spin with all of the good friends I have made here. I'm going to be hella busy packing up the apartment and getting ready to go on a moment's notice, but I'd like to make time to see a lot of you guys before I go and fight the good fight.

There, sentimental part's over. Now who wants to go on a good rampage this weekend? [smiley=evil.gif]

Its gettin really bad up at Pally lately Chad. There have been at least 2 head on bike crashes caused by someone crossing the double yellow. Bill and I did the Borrego-Julian run 2 mondays ago, it was a pretty good run.

On a side note I got something for ya. :)

If Ppoitras suggests a new adventerous route don't listen. Read the 4/25 post by Ducman851.

I'll match you guys mile-for-mile on the dirt, well, other than Troy on his Gran Canyon.
But I'd rather ride on the pavement.........

BTW, Troy, you've got quite the Garage Arsenal. :eek:

Before I say Yes to the ride, Old yeller's reading 5950 on the odometer, and scheduled for his 6k physical. How many miles over the 6k is Ok?

I went a fair bit past 6k myself, but I don't have the same motor. :-/

Anyway, that's immaterial. The service is 10k kilometers, so you have about 250 miles to go yet.
IMHO, you are now committed to the ride. ;D

That ride is something you will talk about for years Troy. Granted it is more fun in hindsight. I'll let you guys choose the route this time.

OK, which of you guys are gonna meet me at the Starbucks off Aero Drive at 9:00?

The rest we can pick up at Mother's about 10:30 - 11:00 and then head to the desert/Julian.

Nick, will you be heading down the 15? If so, can we meet at Tom's farms? You're much more familiar with the meeting spots than I am so I need your leadership here! BTW, where's Mothers?

Dang it, can't they wait until Monday?
All work and no play's gonna make you a dull boy.

Well, is it just me and SoCalSAR on this circus?

I'll rendezvous with anybody between Norco and Palomar, trying for about a 10:00 AM arrival at Mother's to allow for unexpected delays.

If you Local guys have a route you like, I'm an out of towner, it's been months since I've ridden in that area, so it's all pretty new to me. I do like the slower stuff better. :)

OK, you got busy and posted while I was pecking at the keyboard.

I'll be more than happy to meet you at Tom's Farms.
There's a Chevron there right next to the 15, right?

Maybe about 8:30 - 8:45 ? ?

-----------------------------

No later than 9:00, as we'd be hard pressed to get to Mother's by 10:00 if we need to stop.
