motorheads5 My Daughter and I went for a ride here two up around the end of October. HAHA I don't think I will do that again, My son and his buddies are freeride jet skier's so they went out and we thought what the heck let's go for a bike ride. We have all the good riding gear and thought we would ride down to survey point and watch them Storm ride! It rained 4" in 12 hrs. and we had sustained wind's of 70 mph with gust's up to 120 mph lol oh man wanna talk about interesting you didn't dare ride over 40 mph cause a gust would really throw you around we only rode for 20 miles round trip. It was crazy watching the boy's ride the storm waves. BTW My son competed professionally in pacific city oregon and took 7th overall. Check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FC_WvNu41ms sorry I kind of went off track here have fun riding for me I am parked for the winter.

Lockjaw Drag. It was pouring when I woke up, so I figured things might have changed.

I went as far as going to the meeting point in Dublin to meet one other rider coming from San Francisco. But after standing in the light rain waiting for half an hour, I gave up and headed back home. It turns out that the other rider missed the Hacienda exit by a large amount and made it there about 9:45. I missed his phone call about that and he didn't answer when I called his cell, so I skipped it. But he went ahead on to Carnegie and rode around in the mud for a bit. It was definitely too muddy to do much there.

I was planning to still do a rain ride, but instead helped my wife get caught up on a bunch of holiday odds and ends. I rode less than 8 miles overall, but it was enough to get an idea of how well my rain gear works. Pretty good for light rain, but not good enough for serious rain unless I don't mind getting a bit damp.

I'll be ready to do another ride sometime in early January.

I'll keep giving you guys a chance in the future, though.

Lockjaw My bad Tim, thought you were talking about my bike as I think it would have been the only 08 there. Also, I don't think anyone from this forum except Scott is going (and he has a Honda). Could be wrong though.

Just a general statement Dan. Did not have an individual in mind.

The reference was to Carnegie and what used to be made there. Carnegie bricks, clay bricks, wet snot slick clay.

tomatocity Don't forget your mud tires and skills. An '08 drop is $300 without body guards.
