Just joined the group. I just got a 2002 Monster Dark and love it (even in the rain today)! Also ride a Ninja 500R and my wife rides a Ninja 250. We are in Los Gatos and looking forward to meeting/riding with others in the area.
There's a few of us in Los Gatos. It'd be great to meet you and your wife.
Although it's raining now, it seems the next few days should just be cloudy. Maybe we could sneak a ride in.
