And if we can't we will find someone who will ride with you.

Ahhh Shit... We are in the works of trying to put together a TT ride. I'm working out the details and I will let you know.

Hope im not being too ignorant in asking what a TT ride is. Hey JD, maybe you can get that whipped home boy sitting next to you too tag along? Id try but hes married to my wifes sister and all. Do you guys have any ideas on what you want to do? I need details to dream about through this freaking winter. Hey Mad dog is your bike pretty much ready to rock or what?

guy, yep, my bike is perfect as it sits... but it's metallic purple like a carnival ride<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
that's why it's getting new skin. but i think i'm going to ride it bone stock for a few weeks before i start shredding excess weight and such.

No, no smart ass remarks here. Just thought I'd say that you are now moving from choosing your battles wiesly territory to you've lost the battle and now you have to choose your rides carefully territory or you'll be missing the ones that you really want to go on. That is unless, your wife lets you off the hook as much as Guyman's wife does... Just let go and enjoy your new baby when he or she comes. They grow like a weed and are only little once.

i have been thinking about this for a while.....my in-laws own a bar-b-que place in Putney, VT....lots of motorcycles come through there each year and i was thinking if you all want to do some group rides southern vermont is beautiful and we can meet up there and have great food. some of you may have heard of the place, "Curtis' Bar-B-Que"...

How about as soon as the dirt is off the roads and the sun is shining, say may 15th or roundabout? Im based near Portland Me, I guess it will depend where everyone is for the start point. Come on guys pitch in with ideas an comitments to the cause.

I had a 1981 cm400! Tutone blue. Man I loved that little bike. tough as nails and never gave me a problem. Cant remember what I did with it. My bro Jay and I used to race from Bethel to Bridgeton, him with an 550k and me with the cm400. Talking about a close race. Id have him to about 70 or so that he would inch by me by about 2 or 3 miles per hour. Jesus I wrang that cm for all it was worth and then some. HAve to say that it took the abuse a lot better than the 550k.
