Awesomeness x 1000!! Thanks to all the riders....We had such a great mix of bikes and riders...thanks to the Buffalo Soldiers who came out with Ken to ride with us! Can't wait to ride with your chapters here locally! Lady Assassinz coming out in full force as well, our usual suspect of riders and to all the new group riders who bravely came out and had a blast!!


It would be nice to keep this route in March..the cooler weather was awesome and you get a chance to see all the mustard flowers before they die off end of March! Purty riding!!

We really appreciate the support and we all had miles of smiles!

What an amazing day with a great group of riders - I had SO much fun, still smiling about it! As long as it's not a super wet winter, March is a great time to be out there - roads were pretty decent and the scenery was great! Lighter traffic and not having to worry about my bike overheating were great perks as well lol!

Yay, Buddy!!! It was a great FUNDAY SUNDAY! I enjoyed the company of miles and miles of pavement with our fellow riders. Thanks to all that came out, I saw and met some new faces. It was great to see a variety of motorcycles joining together sharing the joy, “RIDING!”

It was a fun day. It wasn't too hot. I second doing it in March forever, or until we need four wheels to keep our balance. Thank you Sabre Sarah for pointing out that my bike tire was showing cord. I made it home safely. My girlfriend is at Cycle Gear in Hayward as I type. They have my tires on sale front and rear for 200 dollars. Steve missed a good ride. Patty I will tell Steve to get his bike to Ken's shop so he and AJ can get it back on the road before the next ride. I sure had fun with that woman with no upper body strength, Jen. What a coincidence. I sat down at the hamburger place across from Jen and Eric to continue their getting to know me. I told them I was going to make them feel guilty for eating their hamburgers and fries because I am a vegan. They said I couldn't do that because they we veggy burgers and sweet potato fries. So thank you Mike for subsidizing the purchase of my very own veggy burger. It really was good. Another coincidence is that just as they were telling me they had the same birthdays but not year I was looking up at the Gott's sign and saw they had been serving hamburgers since the year I was born, 1949.

Jen, what you lack in upper body strength, which sounded serious when it first came up, you make up for with a sense of humor. However your humor could be fine tuned. You pleaded with your husband to beat me up not once but twice. He replied that a verbal beat down would have to do. Take a deep breathe and practice Pilates. I can't wait to check your progress. I will test your upper body strength and your sense of humor on the next ride. I promise. I am laughing already. You are so fun. :lol:

Randy, I better not EVAR hear another safety speech come out of your mouth after you showed up to a ride with a tire even REMOTELY close to that dead - none the less it actually BEING that dead! :naughty:

I am grateful Sarah pointed it out to me. Yeah, I don't know what to say. It won't be a safety speech. I don't even listen to them. Even when I give the speech. :grin:

Jen's lower body strength is nothing to write home about Anne Marie. Again it is her and Eric's sense of humor that compensates. Eating our veggie burgers it came up that they were coming up on a tenth anniversary. They gave each other a quizzical look and then there was a brief discussion about going for it. Mike and I didn't know if they were putting us on. Still don't.
