I am finding that as I age my reflexes and reaction times are diminishing Kevin. Especially when running hot into the twisties as you describe. Off course the alternative is to slow down and back off on the throttle. But as we all know... what's the fun in that...

Absolutely! I enjoy living life, not hiding from something somebody else is afraid of. If it kills me, I went out having a blast!

2nd annual frosty finger 1st. ride.

Last year wasnít the worst ride Iíve ever been on but it certainly wasnít pleasant for a lot of reasons.

What say we try it again this year maybe it can be a total debacle.

New meeting place. The donut shop was closed last year as you may recall so letís meet at the Buck-eeís on I-10 at Crane Island Prkwy. Next exit past our normal meetup on FM 1463.

See maps below.



Ride to Orsakís for lunch.

You may want to show up early and get a breakfast snack before we leave. Up to you. I really donít care when everyone shows up but Iíll be pullling out of Buck-eeís at 10 am. Sharp! Rain or shine. There's a preparation hint there.

The ride wonít be all that long, about 140 miles round trip. Gas at the start and everybody should be able to make it all the way, but Iíll stop for you paranoid guys on the way back.

Looking forward to the first ride of the year. Rumor has it Kevin may even show up.

Hey guys good to hear some chatter. Provided I get up early enough, I'll meet everyone for the ride. Will cut out on way back before Willis to head to the southeast as need to get back to watch my Alma Mater in the Rose Bowl. I'll see if HAP wants to head over.

Kevin is back up and riding although I don't know if he gets on here much anymore since he replaced his Thruxton with a Yamaha. 😁

I think he mentioned an XSR900 when we spoke on new years. Is that what he rides now? I also bought another bike for 2-up riding, but still have the Tiger for commuting.

Yep. That’s what he got. He’s enjoying the heck out of it. We’re riding out to Montgomery Steak House on Sunday. Of course you’re welcome to join.
