Anyone up for a ride Saturday 4/5

Looks like spring might be here finally. We had a nice rain last night and it's supposed to be mid 50's on Saturday. I've got to get my new tires put on in the AM and want to scrub them in. I should be ready by noonish. Anybody down?

I have to put new plugs in the Z-rex, and I will probably want to blow the dust off her, but I will more than likely stay out on the west side, and hit the "loop". I have no idea what time I will head out either. If anyone wants to do that, give me a call or shoot me a PM by like Wednesday ot Thursday, and I may know more.

Jgreen,

I'd be interested in doing the loop now that I have the bike back together. I can't do Saturday and I know they are calling for rain at the moment on Sunday, so it might not work out anyway. I'll check the weather Friday and see what you're planning then.

Don, a saturday ride sounds good. im donw for riding where ever, locally or if you feel like hitting the AA loop. and if you have never ridden the infamous AA (ann arbor) loop, its really fun. a bunch of decent twisties to quench your thirst from not at the track. just dont go over your limits there like some dsb guys unfortunately did last year. we dont want anyone getting hurt or wadding up any bikes.

i am going ot be stopping at L7 at 9:30am sat morning to have scott set my suspension up. after that ill be down for a ride.


and dont lose or misplace your key Don



nelson, maby we can all meet up and ride out. i still get lost riding to the AA meeting spot. but we should watch the time. i dont want to do a hr+ freeway ride home in the cold.

According to Nelson's post, he cannot go riding on Sat. But he can on Sunday.

As of the 7pm forecast tonight, Jerry Hodak says that Sunday might actually be the nicer day. Strange how these things shift around.

Sat, 30% chance of rain, Sunday, 54 and mostly sunny.

We will see what the wknd brings.

Lol, I found my key in the washer yesterday. I swear I checked through all my pants. Oh well, now I have 3 keys ....I might ride locally for a few miles before hitting the loop. Never been on it, but I hear it's a good ride. I only put 1,000 miles on it last year plus the winter, so I'm a bit rusty. Plus I'm going to have brand new tires as of Saturday too. Like I said, I'll be ready at noonish.
