Basically that we should all slow down and stay the out of the country roads because of all the complaints they were getting from the residents, saying that too many people were speeding...

First thanks Joe for putting on this ride, thanks Kevin for leading us (intermediate A) out there. It was good seeing everyone as usual. Sorry to hear about the guys that went down, glad everyone is OK though. Hope to see you guys out soon.

Good ride guys. Glad that everyone is ok. Bikes are replaceable.

Track Days y'all!

Not to ride fast on the street, but to learn how to better get yourself out of situations. Or better yet, avoid situations all together.

Good times though. And again, I am happy everyone is ok.

Thanks Joe. Class act as always.
Thanks Kdub for stepping up also.

You da mans!

Oh yeah....and nice meeting ALOT of new faces out there.

Thank you Joe & Kdub,

Great day, sorry to hear about the 5 other fallen ones, hope everyone is ok.

it is like sooooo not cool to pick on my bike, between you and dude you are going to scar it for life with those comments!!! Just look at my avatar and see how it used to be

And the guy didnt say it was on its last leg, he said I better have a short ride home

It was great to meet you, and yeah, she tried you pretend she was slow at first.

Geeezz people....its really not that bad when people call you slow like Granny-Joy! It keeps stuff like this from happening.

I kinda want to ride a little today but I'm super tired from yesterday.
Not all accidents are caused by speed.

Sorry to hear about the pile-up. I just got the call, so I thought I'd check for details. I'm glad to hear you guys are okay. Bikes can be replaced.

I am home. Finally... Missed the rain. Although it is closing in now. Dropped a cylinder somewhere between squid falls and Yankees. Limped it all the way home.

Before any of you guys freak out... Nobody was going all vroom fast on the way back. One person got a little shakey in a corner and lifted it up... 3 others saw what happened and target fixated. Not going too fast, just a lack of concentration.

As far as the forest incident from what I hear someone unexpectantly hit the brakes, not sure why, wasn't there. Somebody else will have to fill in the details.

As always no man left behind, so myself and Striker waited for Onewheel and Jayboy to get the trailer and get everyone's bike to the proper places. Thanks to Onewheel and Jayboy for taking the time out to do so.

The State Poopers just got their panties in a wad about A DIFFERENT GROUP OF BIKES, and took it out on us. Which is fine, everyone needs a lecture from a t kicker every once in a while anyway. Let it be known that although they were able to ferret out a few minor infractions, no tickets were issued, win for us, and confirmation at least we were generally following the rules. THANK YOU TX DPS!

Thankfully Texlurch is was not Tim's corner. We have been idling through there sometimes stopping to pay our respects to our fallen brother. RIP Pigpen.

All in all it WAS a great ride, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. So anyway, I'll be taking a break from the forrest for a while, as I will be at MotoGP next week, and putting my R1 back together the next! So good luck to all you riders and remember to stay vertical!
