Hmm.. I think we have a scheduling conflict. If you remember, I quote from Tony

Mark your calenders, March 18, 19, and 20. LSTD trackday on the 18th followed by a CMRA race weekend on the 19th and 20th.

I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make the trip down to Cresson anyway, so it might be a mute point for me anyway. I'm almost sure I can at least show up Saturday the 19th for the fire dept fund raiser anyway. But, the point remains, what are we doing? /wwwthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Hmm... nope the weekend of the 26th the Air Force is sending me to a Microsoft conference back in Washington. So, what's the next track day on the agenda? I'm free up until the last week of April. As it is, I guess I'll be riding with you guys on the 19th :waytogo:

Re: St. Patrick\'s Day Spring Opening Ride - Mar. 1

Nick...

Pimp away..... I'm lov'n it!

Hey ALL OF YOU !!!

March 17th... the MO, WI, TN, OK, NE, AL, MS riders start to arrive. Friday ride route not disclosed.... or with whom.

March 17th is my 50th birthday.... it is St. Patrick's Day! An "official" party day like New Years Eve. I been partying for 49 years... I ain't about to stop now. (especially after my cancer I wasn't suppose to see 30... I am gonna raise h..... since I am gonna see 50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Looks like I may even get a visit from Norway... I can't wait!!! Can you believe it, I am actually "looking forward" to my 50th birthday. I beat the dr's and odds. Let's celebrate! As I type this it is still hard to believe I am sitting here and typing and ALIVE still today. AND, better yet... I am still riding a bike.... and gonna be 50!!! OK... riding pillion... but hey, I am still on 2 wheels on the streets and an occasional track. and.... in one of the good fast lanes.

THANK YOU ARILD!!!!

24 yrs. with Arild has been a good thing. 1st he taught me HOW to ride. Then we had years of fun riding together all over Europe (the race track times we had on the GP tracks were simply FANTASTIC) and then in the USA and Canada (weeks and months long trips)... I am spoiled rotten and have loved every minute of it.

I am HAPPY!!! and... gonna be 50!!!

I know I shouldn't have said all this probably. But there are some of you who might wanna know. My birthday USED to be the reason for the weekend event. Is is no longer true. This is the last year it have any reference to my birthday. It is now just a fun date, a true Spring Opening Ride... for all motorcyclists to come out and join in a day of fun. With different events for each different types of groups... and different routes with commmon meeting locations.... it will simply be a great Spring Opening Ride.

Now... no more birthday talk... now all us riders who ride the AR Gap area should think of spending 1 day or weekend a year and spending our money to ride and eat... in the area we ride in that can use our economical support (and we benifit from that directly). Put our money where our passion and ride is.

I sincerely hope a lot of you show up for this event and ride. 35-65 riders attend this event every year for the past 3 years. I hope to see many of your at the ST. Patrick's Day event again this year. There are some surprises in store.
