Hey there,

I'm a 2002 R1 owner looking for a bit of company on the road. I have been in Houston for 9 months (from Scotland, UK) and I've been finding riding on my own a bit boring as I don't know the roads and don't want to get too far into BFE in case I get lost! I also think it's safer in numbers having racked up my first ticket after having the bike only two weeks (100 in a 55 and passing in a no-passing zone)!

Anyway, I can't make your ride this weekend but would be interested in anything your doing in the future.

There is a regular TSBA ride every Sunday and it leaves from Jack in the Box in Brookshire (right off I-10). Come out and join up sometimes.

August 13th, 2002, 09:10 PM
okay dokey, I'll give that a try some time and I'll also keep an eye open for anything else you are doing.

Doesn't look like I'll make it. Have to work on the '97 Sunfire, A/C and motor mount. Also, the daughter has some type of meet the teacher thing at school Saturday. I should be out for the SMR though.

August 14th, 2002, 02:07 PM
I'm still going - even by myself. Might have a friend coming along.

Well I fixed the A/C and motor mount on the '97 Sunfire last night. So that's one less thing I have to do Saturday. Now I have to get a straight story from the 13 year old on her school thing for Saturday.

Starting at 7:00 and going where? Don't really care but maybe it might help me figure out when I might be home or when I need to be home.

You have a friend?

Would his handle be "Trouser Trout"?

August 15th, 2002, 11:22 AM
OK, you guys got me. I have no friends. It's going to be just me. I'm leaving at 7:15 if anyone wants to tag along.

Route: 249, some back roads to boring part of 1488, 149 through the forest, then towards 3090, 3090 back and forth, and then head back the same way, or go down 362 to 1488 and run that couple times.

I'll keep in touch. If I go I'll wait for you to cruise by at 249 & 2920. About 7:20 to 7:25.

Hey, I'll be your freind. What about you Randy, or are you to busy in your Mille/GS love triangle?

Hey Oskar,

Are you going to Cresson on Monday?

August 15th, 2002, 02:24 PM
No I'm not going to Cresson. I have big presentation at work and can't skip it. I'd love to go, but can't this time. I will be at TWS Labor Day.

Chris. I am taking back roads and will not come accross 249/2920. You can meet up with me at Texaco at 105/149 or at 1488/149 intersection. Let me know if you want to meet up there.

Randy, when is the Mille going to be ready. I'm ready to take it for a test ride. I am also willing to hel putting it together.

Well in that case I'll just hook up with ya at the Micky Dee's at Willowbrook Mall at 7:00 If I go. it still depends on my daughter's school thing. I'll get more detailed info from her tonight.

I've got to be back in CLC by 2 or 3, so if we run long I might have to bail early. If you don't hear from me by midnight Friday saying otherwise, count me in!!!

Hey, Scott. 1:09 AM in the morning? What, you out sucking blood or something?

Sorry guys, looks like family comes first for Saturday. I may also miss the usual SMR because I have to go to Atlanta for work Tuesday and have to get my $h!t together Sunday that I've been neglegting around the house lately. If we're making it a short ride Sunday I might be able to squeeze it in.

Scott Farmer
August 16th, 2002, 01:52 PM
I run some pretty odd hours. That's one of the reasons it's so hard for me to make it to the SMRs.

I am planning on making your ride.

Scott, call me on 281-380-0686 if you want to meet up in CLC before heading to the northern hinterlands.

Scott Farmer
August 17th, 2002, 01:08 AM
Well, it's a little late/early to be calling you guys. How about this... you call me at 832-326-8954 in the morning. I'll be ready to go about 5:45-6:00. We can try to hook up at the Fudruckers at 45 and the beltway or something.

Let me know.

August 17th, 2002, 03:28 PM
I had a good time riding with everyone. This was my first ride to lead, and hopefully I did OK job. We ended up with 11 different bikes (unless I miscounted). Sorry it was short, but I had to be back home by noon.

I like riding Sat morning, so I most likely be posting more rides.

Brian, could you please e-mail the videos to me. I'll try to get them hosted. Try to edit them and just leave some good parts. Thanks.

I enjoy the Saturday rides. See, for me church is on Sundays and it is difficult for me to get out of it to go ride. So I came up with a compromise. I will try to ride every other Sunday. But for Saturday, I can go just about every time. I had a great time riding other than the long boring ride out to the Sam Houston Forest. Once we got there it was a good run. By the way, where are we going this Saturday?

Also, I will be trying to encode the video of the ride tonight. Post your e-mail address so I can send it to you.

I can host the videos. Let me know...
