Does any one ride at normal times?

I would really like to go on some of these weekend rides but I am most certainly not going to wake up at the crack of dawn when it could be pushed back two or three hours just as easy. Typically we go out on saturday nights and most of the time we aren't hung over on sundays but we still like being able to sleep in on out days off.

So again I ask is there anyone who rides at normal hours on the weekends?

People go out Saturday nights all the time but know when to cut it back so they can make the morning rides. People have families that they would like to spend time with on Sunday after they get back from the rides.

If you want to get a ride together, just post one up.

What is normal time??

There have been people that post afternoon rides in the midday because there are no cars on the road...if you wanna ride int afternoon on weekends...good luck with traffic and cops..

Pretty much this for me...

I love going on rides...but I have to be back home at a certain time...so when there is a ride posted that I k.ow won't allow me that, I don't go...

Then, I make my own ride, if people want to come, they come...it's been great no traffic no cops...you are mAybe the first to hit the road that day...

If you don't know routs, grab a map and start looking for twisty roads and go out there on your own and check it out...if you don't have the energy to do that...


THEN SUCK IT UP AND WAKE UP EARLY.


BIG BABY!

Especially in the summer, later in the day starts getting pretty warm

Then again my normal weekend ride is 360+ miles so it ends up late in the day anyhow... LOL!!

If you post a later ride, it'll give the people who didn't stop when they should have Saturday night a chance to stumble forth.

I can understand when it's hour out but when it's 50 or even sometimes 60 with overcast I would think you would want to start a lil later, the families the popo deal and traffic however is the best excuses I've heard and I understand!

Well... I'm with ya bro. The whole thing about Kick-Stands-Up @ 7:30, means arrive at 7, leave house at 6:30, up at 5-something... and Monday feels like Friday because I'm still waiting for the weekend. I show up here and there because that's the difference between riding with people vs. riding solo.

So how does KSU at 9:30+ sound to ya?!
Late enough?
