Ride 9/21

Recommended Posts

Meet at Bolivar DQ at 8:00 and rolling by 8:15. Pace will be unnecessarily excessive. Route isn't determined, but it will be twisty and the stops infrequent. 

No whining allowed.

Fuel pump was shipped today. I may be in for this. If you’ll be stopping at least within say 120 miles or so.

I think that is doable. If @Blitz plans to ride, then we will need to stop every 20 minutes for fuel, anyway.

Damn. You sure know how to sell a good time. 

I used to be a salesman, but decided to get a refund from Satan on my soul and chose another path.

I don't think my route is heading your way. Have a safe trip, Kent.

Is there any mods that will move this to the right section. No respect for rules and etiquette in this place.

 

On an unrelated note, if I have the tire by then may be in for the shenanigans. 

 

And on another note, since this was posted up in open public with bolivar as the spot I have a feeling this is going to become a mini dream bomb if the weather is going to hold up as good as it’s doing now 😆 

 

Close to a decade ago same place around same time looks a lot different with 90% of the folks not active anymore

Passions come and go, Nivin. Lots of members went full track, which is actually a very good thing. I respect the track-only mindset, but it isn't my mindset. I like riding on a race track, but I just like the simplicity of street riding so much more. Maybe one day that will change, but I think I am in this street bike thing for the long haul.

Agree.  I've been riding street for 50+ years, since the mid-60s, and still enjoy the act of walking out to the garage and throwing a leg over the bike.  No prep, no fuss, no hassle.  Instant gratification!  Admittedly, the dramatic uptick in poor driving--mostly associated with cell phones and distracted driving--has changed the rules and made it mandatory to maintain constant vigilance.  I'm not convinced that even with many years of riding experience that I won't be taken out by someone else's stupidity or arrogance, but the thrill of riding is worth the danger.

Disclaimer:  I'm old.  I'm single.  My kids are grown.  My house is paid off.  No more than a handful of people would miss me if I died.  My decision process would likely be different if I was younger and had 2-3 decades of wife and kids ahead of me.  YMMV.
