Tri-County Ryde Revived! - Sunday May 11th!

We're back for Sunday May 11th!

Well, it's Mother's Day and we can certainly agree Maryland's spring weather is a mother.  When we cancelled this Saturday's event on Thursday morning, the whole weekend forecast was rain-laden.  Now, the skies have parted for this Sunday, so Pete and I will be at the TT Diner in Ellicott City at 9:15am. 

Please come if you can;  no negative RSVPs please.  The Tri-County is one of our more fun rydes ... a yearly favorite.  It's about 86 miles through the whoop-dee-doo back roads of Howard, Carroll and Montgomery Counties.  We try to take it at a legal but crisp speed just to get some fun out of the roads. We'll lunch at the Olney Alehouse in ... gee ... Olney! :-) We'll have a ryders meeting at 9:45 and then take off at 10 sharp.  This should allow us to get to our lunch spot before any big lunch rushes.

Hope to see you there, and Ryde Safe!

    Great day for a Ryde. The weather could not have been better. Olney Inn was top notch as usual. Thanks to the Knights for joining us. Can't wait to descend on Amish Country this weekend!

    Beautiful day, and thanks to everyone for coming, especially our newcomer, Johnny Yankanich, and our second visit by the effervescent Souzan ... Can someone remind me who our friend on the BMW K1200 RT was? Don't see him in our RSVPs, but it was good to have him along. We seem to be gettin' mail from several BMW riders who wanna be social, so they ryde with us Spyder folks? We should be flattered. This means that Souzan's gotta bring hubby Eddie (BMW GS800) and then we have PJ on his Beemer and we just got mail from another adventure tourer. Thanks to our BK MD III brothers, Earl, Chester and Mel ... steady fans of MSW. MSW has a new byline in that regard, "Knights On Our Six!"

    The Tri-County route was nicer with the western extension through Carroll County. Love all the twists and whoopty-doos of this ryde. Olney Ale House never fails us. Tim ... thanks for the brotherly help, as always.

    "Harb? ... Harb?"

    Again, cudos to all for makin' it a great day. :-)

      Ya did fine, Suzy ... just remember to brace (knees), slow, downshift, maybe brake a little ... follow the curve with your eyes, and as it surrenders to your will, roll onto the throttle and out ... be ready for the next twisty! :-)

      LOL! I was out, today . . . got caught in a torrential downpour, about 12 miles from home . . . didn't stop to put on the rain gear. My shoulders got wet, my calves got damp, and the rest of me stayed dry at 65 MPH . . . and Topper handled the water with no problem! I LOVE MY SPYDER!!!
