The guys at Powersports (especially Bo) are an awesome group - we're really lucky to have them right here! In fact, we used to live just across the alley behind the shop, and when my bike wouldn't start, one of the guys just came over and rolled it over there for me (I was worried about dropping it, especially since the path from our garage to the alley was all gravel). I was just in there Thursday again myself :)
Yep..that's where I go! Beau(can ya believe he actually spells it THIS way??) and Gabe are great. I actually didn't buy my bike from them. My friend in Sac got me a killer deal from Good Times up there..but I will be getting it serviced with PowerSports!

To all of you beautiful ladies who are caging it because their rides are in the shop....SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A HONDA! :twisted: :lol: :ride :rad :infrandom

See everyone in the morning. I'm leaving Ripon @ 8am (with a possible new gal in tow), meeting AnaMarie & Graciella in Tracy by 8:30.

Jessika - Am I swooping you up @ Airport like usual?

I'll see you NinjaMama at Starbucks in Livermore at 9:00am. I love my suzi burg and it has more storage than the Honda SW. And to be honest, I'm pretty friggin' happy to be riding in my brand new 2011 Mini Copper S coupe. At this point Tink and RedHot have equal status in my heart :D

Patty,
I just got hold of Heidi, she'd like to ride with you most likely from the San Jose meet-up site. Give me a call and I'll discuss the details about who, what, when, and where.

P.S. We have about 5 different Starbucks here in Livermore. One is about 4 blocks away from my house on North Livermore Ave. in the Lucky's Shopping Center. Let's plan on meeting there. (9 AM)
Sabrina fair...

in twisted braids of lillies knitting
the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair.

It's looking like the "partly cloudy" will hold out until tomorrow evening. For all ladies who plan to attend our club meeting afterwards, let's try to buzz through the agenda so we can all get home before the raindrops move in!

Ladies, I'll be at the ride, decided I'd rather not miss it, the other thing was that HD casting call, but I get the impression there's a lot of people going, and I picked up a couple horse hauls (plus the super cheap tires) and the money would have gone towards my trackday, but those things should more than cover it, and they are guaranteed - plus, this is one route I've never done, so I'll see you all in San Jose!

Hi Ladies! Looks lke I am not going to make it to the meeting afterall! Bummed but I am still running wine clubs this morning for a client that has to ship tomorrow! Grrr..I would need to leave Napa in 20 minutes to make it to Morgan Hill by Noonish to meet up with you all at the restaurant or even the meeting place!

So I am hoping to make it to the fundraiser (to watch and meet and greet..don't think I can ride the karts) and definitely save the date for your April ride and meeting. Hopefully by then, I will actually feel comfy enough to group ride with you all!

In the meantime, if anyone wants to meet up with me in the napa area and do a ride or two so I get some practice with smaller groups...please pm me and I will get in touch!


Hope yoru rode today was fun and your dodged any raindrops!

Hi Ladies! I hope you had a great ride..hope to hear about it soon!
I was bummed to miss meeting you...if we didn't lose that hour I think I could have made it...but work got in the way!

I will plan for April 10th meeting (thats the next one,right?). Is there any location yet for that ride/meeting? Just want to plan for it. Are your meetings/rides usually always that far south?

I am joping to make the fundraiser as well next weekend!!

Cheers!

Patty

What a perfect time of the season to hit Mt. Madonna. The hills on 129 were bright green with life, almost like being in Ireland w/o the rain! Fresh air, not too cold, and surrounded by great company. Thanks to all you ladies for making our CU day a special one!

Yes during the ride the weather was great and I was so jealous that I couldn't mount up but had lots of fun being the photographer and sweeping with Sabrina. I just felt so bad for ya'lls ride back though in the in the spiting rain after the meeting :( Love you guys!!

Hey Champagne and AJ,
I assume you both got home safe, sound, and soaked.
I felt this uncontrollable need to keep my eye on you ladies from a respectful distance on 680 when you caught up to RedHot. Then there were those asshats I was ready to run down when they did not give you your god-given road space. It was this mother thing that took over even though I know you both could run my a** down in an even worse downpour in a minute. HA!

Thank you all for allowing me to participate yesterday. And thank you Heidi for riding shotgun and putting up with my bad jokes and questionable driving skills.

All in all, a great day with great women.
