 * * Not recommended for newbies * *

 Words of Wisdom:
~ Please review Liability Release statement at THIS LINK

~ Proper gear, a working machine and gas in the tank is highly recommended.
~ Ride within your comfort zone and leave room for bad karma.
~ I may pass slower traffic when it's safe. You don't have to. Remember, someone will wait for you at turns, so just relax and have fun.
~ I maintain the Pace according to road conditions with safety of all riders in mind. Be mindful of others in the group. Let faster riders get ahead of you by moving to the right and signaling them to pass you. And if you want to pass the rider(s) who are in front of you, make sure to do so safely and without startling them.

~ If you know the area and would like to sweep for the group (AM shift, PM shift or both), please let me know.
~ Good stuff to read before going on group rides (CLICK).
~ Keep an eye for the rider(s) behind you so they won't take a wrong turn. If they get lost, you'll buy their lunch

    Enjoyed the wet hairpins on Zayante with my tread bare rear tire. Good practice. Plus more break-in miles for a very tight engine rebuild. Two new problems popped up. Need a starter solenoid (thank God for kick starters). Found an oil leak that showed up on the ride.

      That's why you have two of those fantastic machines: test ride one while you fix the other one!

    Mehran, Jeff, Kenny, Bob, Peter and I passed you guys on HWY 1 heading to Davenport. We made it up to Alice's and it started to drizzle. Hope you guys had better luck and stayed dry.

      Drizzle? What drizzle? We ended the ride around 4 PM.

      With the "old normal", no route plan, no fixed destination: at each corner, look for the clouds, and turn the opposite way...

    Less pix than usual; "someone" didn't charge the battery! I've uploaded them in photos. Electronic versions with full attributes are available here: http://s192.photobucket.com/user/88tbone/library/NewNormal_HMB_052713

    A superb way to end a long weekend. Thanks to our usual suspects for keeping the group together. And thanks to our riders for coming out to ride. See you all soon ~ M

    Nice relaxing Memorial day. The clouds kept the crowds away, and master Mehran picked as always a great mix of technical and fun roads.

    I'll admit it, I'm a wussie when it comes to wet roads. I'm gonna BBQ instead. Ride safe everyone.

  • Martin M

    Well... changed my mind. Put 175 Break-in miles on the rebuild, and it's strong past redline, but what better way than a Mehran ride to really thrash it. 1/2 dday for me. Lunch, then go home.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
