Hey Jimi! It was SO nice to meet you on Saturday, that was a blast. I loved seeing your bright pink bike/gear in front of me while we took over the east bay freeways, I felt like part of an outlaw girl group. 8-)

Thanks for waiting with us, too, to help pack up AJ's stuff.

Hey "salt"..I replied in your newbie thread on BARF today..didn't see you made it over here already!

We got to meet and ride with Jimi this past sunday as she joined some of us CU gals and assorted friends to cheer on our AFM racer gal, AJ at Sonoma Raceway.

Hopefully you can join in one of our rides soon and CU gals are always willing to scoop you up and tow you around to get some additional seat time!

Hope to meet you soon. And Jimi..great meeting you Saturday, learning about your law school ambitions and help you get some riding time in. You are doing great..despite the BARF usual "you are gonna kill yourself on that crazy a$$ bike" nonsense!! You are doing great!!

:-)
