Re: Anyone still riding

S'how are you liking Moncton so far, Shalaw? Lotta bikes around, eh? I get up there almost every weekend. Should be a lot colder this coming weekend. We've got the damn snow on the ground here. Bike's still not put away, but it hasn't seen much action with the flu I've been struggling with the past month. Grrrr.

Re: Anyone still riding

Moncton was a bit boring for the first 2-3 weeks, now that I got a few riding buddies it's way better.

Are you going to the different even hosted by nbriders.ca ?

I was at Hooligan day 5 and Stuntapalooza

even.. events? Kept missing them for one reason or another. Family and wedding stuff going on. Plus had the car up that weekend. Would've loved to have made it and shot a few pics with the digital. Didn't get a lot of riding in around the city this season. A lot of road trips out of Moncton, though. Met a few guys from nbriders.ca, they sure do love to go fast and stir up some good ole fashioned hooliganisms. Have you met Roger from Hi-tech (Suzuki) yet? He's usually out on his demo '04 GSXR1000 (lucky bastage), or Steve and the boys from Atlantic Yamaha?

Re: Anyone still riding

+10į in Calgary today and supposed to be even warmer over the weekend. Double digits right thru until Wed they say.

Was out a bit this afternoon, and will be riding again tonight.

Re: Anyone still riding

I enjoy every minute I ride those days. Not saying that I ride to work and go out if its below 5-6 and/or raining but every other day I ride. I am not giving up just yet Sunday was perfect and tomorrow should be good too. I meet some riders on the road and it so cool to know Iím not the only one that ended their riding season. All my friends winterized their bikes already and donít want to go out, donít know the reasoning behind that For me itís not over till the fat lady sings or I feel cold through my leather and we are not there yet ? I have to ride alone now and I miss those days when you could stop at some coffee shop, meet few fellow riders and 20min later weíre on the road Ö damn.
