Had a few members text me about rides this weekend...its going to be cool and extremely windy but im prepared to battle them with you if you want to ride...the pace will be guarenteed slower than normal cause i dont want to get blown off the road at higher speeds...i will make ride times based on what the interested riders post...anytime after 10 is fine...lets see who the die hard riders are...Sunday forecast is almost the same as sat but cooler.
Roads may also be wet sat from fri rain.

Saturday ride cancelled

2. OneOfChrist76
3. ZRX77418
4. Xylo

Morgstang, you are truly a Godsend to this group. Always willing to go the extra mile to accommodate the masses. I only wish I were closer so I could take advantage of your most generous offerings.
Bless you sir, and thank you!

Going to the Houston Art Car parade Saturday, but I'd be up for after church on Sunday if the masses trend toward that...otherwise I can catch you all next time.

20mph? Just how slow are these rides? I get bored easily and don't want to fall asleep if I have the opportunity to join one of these grand events.

Dont worry the 20 mph winds will test your ability when its a cross wind and your going around a corner...lol

They tend to be a good pace for road riding.. It's no track day obviously. Normally a moderate relaxing pace around corners for a experienced rider and scary fast for someone who has little to no experience cornering.. Only thing I have to compare it to is track though. Could compare corner speed to a slow lvl 2 (may get up to moderate lvl 2 on some of morgstangs favorite roads). Strait speeds very depending on road and condition of the road and cops.. Morgstang is great with knowing what roads don't have on them and where its ok to speed up. If you want to be on a fun yet safe ride for most experience lvls then morgstang is your man.. Also.. No one gets left behind.. Tend to slow down to reasonable pace in most straits (within 10mph of speed limit). Although there are some sprints thrown in there every so often.

HERE IS THE APPROACH TO TAKE FOR THESE WEATHER CONDITIONS:
It is the night
My body's weak
I'm on the run
No time to sleep
I've got to ride
Ride like the wind
To be free again

And I've got such a long way to go
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind

I was born the son of a lawless man
Always spoke my mind with a gun in my hand
Lived nine lives
Gunned down ten
Gonna ride like the wind
