I really hope things gets better after a couple of weeks so we can go back to RR again!

Oh yeah and today for the first time actually one of the top 5 routemasters came out with us, too bad the ride was cut short on the warm up run
It's understandable why the troopers were called out there. Seems like it will be a Temporary patrol. Yeah, it's fun for me when Carlos comes because he is just as crazy as I am out there.

We will ride again soon Frank.

"no more Sunday rides" ?

You guys do realize that RR isn't the only fun road around Houston, right? Maybe if the same group didn't run it the same time every Sunday morning the locals wouldn't be so tired of it. Blame it on the crashes and fatalities if you want, but this is just a repeat of the past years.

It'll chill in a bit and rerun over again.

It has been said that we have done this sooooo many times. RR is such a bad road that I really wouldn't ride anywhere else just because.

No way my wifes going to let me spring for that right before vacation. If anyone knows where one is let me know please.
After 3 different riders got radiator punctures on my first two rides to Fayetteville, I had a radiator guard installed on my bike.

Weather supposed to be nice, so come out and play!



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please read some basic common sense rules for this ride:

A. keep at least 2 bike lengths distance between bikes at all times.
B. pay attention to the road and the bikes in front of you.
C. ride in staggered formation on straights.
D. No wheelies or passing in the same lane as other riders (use another lane to wheelie/pass).
E. When passing cars, don't slow down after the pass, leave room for the riders that may be passing with you.
F. do not ride out of your comfort zone!
G. keep a constant speed, do not accelerate to pass on the straights and then park it on the turns, its all about being smooth!
H. YOU MUST HAVE INSURANCE UNDER YOUR OWN NAME, NO EXCEPTIONS!

*Please make sure your bike is running in good condition!

Anybody down to go this weekend? I was seriously considering going there by myself, but since someone else mentioned it, sure why not?
