    She has been asking me to take her on a ride for quite a while now so she asked me as soon as I got up today. If it would of been just a little warmer it would of been a perfect day to ride nice and sunny just a little chilly.

    I ride year round here in New York City, I sold all 3 of my trucks this year and am 2-wheels only! I've ridden in the snow, rain, freezing rain, and temps down to 7 degrees so far. Al Gore is a liar, I don't see any Global Warming!

    Anyway, looks better and better that I'll be able to make it for at least a few days for this event...

    When I told my wife I wanted to buy a bike she "CRIED". And said "YOU WILL NEVER GET ME ON THAT THING." So this is what I did to change her mind. I might have made a mistake cause now she wants to ride with me 2-up only. I also do get out on solo rides. But She will go when ever I ask.

    I got her to meet me in a vacant parking lot so she was not worried about any traffic and rode around there for a bit till she was comfortable. Now she will go when I ask her.

    So if you have a wife or GF that seems to want to try riding take her to a vacant lot and she will be more comfortable when there is not any traffic around or person watching. They are afraid that they will do something to look stupid. With no one around that is not a issue.

    Maybe this will help

    One more thing she also thought that she would look bad on the bike. But a drive by a windowed store front to see what we look like on bike fixed that issue.

    Just my 2-cents

    as a matter of fact, yes. i thought you north georgia riders could take us into your stompin' grounds (blood mtn/warwoman, 348 - richard russell, 197 - burton lake, etc). another ride could take us over the cherohala, thru greasy creek to 64east then down to t.w.o. then back up 60 to 68 (ducktown to tellico) back on the cherohala to 129 to the gap then 28 to ksl. 3rd ride is a ride that my wife and i are gonna explore this spring. 28 thru franklin/highlands to 64east to 215 north to 276east to 64west to 281north to 107north, left onto 116west to 23/441south into franklin then back up 28 to the ksl. i'm not too fond of the blue ridge pkwy or the foothills pkwy... just me though.:smokin:

    if i'm not mistaken, there's a south carolina rider that might lead a ride (not rc24rc51 tho).

    these could be solid routes with a day for playing, drinking or staying dry.

    It will also be a good time to try out my new EBC Contour Lite Rotors and Supersprox sprockets.
