So, we should all get together for a ride sometime! It's a little late in the year to plan something now, but maybe for next year. It might take that long for some other posters to come around again anyhow.
Last fall we were back out in California and got to do some riding with Novos again.

We've also done some dirt riding with DrD and met up with him & IRR in June to do some street riding in WV. Had a great time doing that.

We've tried to keep meeting up with the gang. It would be nice to do it again next spring. I've just about exhausted all of my vacation time for this year so I'm busy thinking about road trips for next year already :)

Fuzz, when can we expect the next dirty blog posting? Haven't seen anything from the monkey on two wheels lately either.
The monkey should have a couple dirt days coming up in the next couple weeks.

It's been a little while since we've been out on the dirt bikes in the actual dirt :smile We're trying to get ourselves out for a dual sport event coming up in Massachusetts, which is always fun. There are just always so many things to juggle. You know how it goes. But, hopefully soon. It's much nicer when the weather starts to cool off.

Have you been kicking around getting a dirty bike? I seem to remember you getting out a little earlier in the summer.

If you do make it to Colorado we will have to do a ride! However, I am not going to do Pikes Peak in 10 minutes... :)

Deal! :grin

I seem to remember reading some article a couple years ago about a Colorado riding loop that does 10 peaks over 10,000ft. Does that sound right or have I gone batty?

...once it drops in temperature I'm game again; the Rev'It textiles are HOT. :flame2
Did you go into the woods or do any trail riding or was it most gravel roads?

What? L8R moves east and you guys start planning on moving west? Is it the case of too many cool kids on one coast? :wtf ;)
Yes, we don't want to unbalance the Earth and get a nasty tankslapper going :burnout

I don't know. There is just something about the environment, the vibe, the people of northern California that feels like it should be my home. I think it's worth finding out if my hunch is right. We'll make sure to have lots of extra space and a couple bikes for visitors :ridin

Riding under power lines :smirk it was a mix of gravel road, straying off into the dirt paths that lead up and down the hills/jumps that elevate the towers and one romp into the woods where we blazed our own trails
HOOLIGAN! :shocked :grin

Surrendering to letting the bike move around you so much takes some getting used to, huh?

Sunday also gave me the chance to catch up with some of the boys (Serp and co.) and learn of a motorcycle-torpedoing deer incident awhile back; I'll get more of the story this Sunday, but the box score stands at 2 totaled motorcycles (1200 Bandit and 1400 Concours), 2 sets of trashed protective gear, and 1 fibula broken in 3 places :crazy. 1 metal rod and 2 new bikes later, and everybody is back in the saddle with a story to tell. :smirk

:shocked :help

I think your friends might need some bubblewrap riding suits.
