    • Skid V.

      Don't even worry about it, everyone dropped out. It looked like a ton of rain was heading our way and then of course, it cleared up. I went by McD's but no one was there. I'm thinking of going tomorrow though

    Not gonna be a good day for air show Sat. Sun. Looks like the day to go. Have a great time, wish I could make it!

    I have to cancel after all. All the mothers in the family decided we should get together on Saturday instead.

    1 · May 9

  • Steve C.

    Yeah, not looking so good. I will hang on for end of Friday. Really loved this air show. Sunday not so good being Mothers Day, although forecast much better.

    1 · May 8

    • Bill P

      Same here, I will wait until late Friday to decide.

    Forecast is looking pretty crappy... are you riding down even with pending rain? Not sure if t-birds will perform in rain or overcast (very low ceiling).

    May 8

    • Skid V.

      Yeah, when it was a 30% chance of rain down there, it was still a go, but they upped it to 50%. Like I said before, I'll probably be going both days. BUT, if it's pouring rain and completely overcast, then I'll probably stay home. I will be keeping an eye on the weather though.

      Even though the showers will be scattered, that still means that 3/8 to 4/8 of the sky will be cloudy. So, I would say make your best informed decision to go or not.

    May 6

  • G1L1O N.

    Anyone riding from north jersey to Bridgewater let me know ?

    1 · April 29

    • Skid V.

      Doesn't look like anyones coming from that area, but I'm off X 26, so if you want company the last 10 or 12 miles, let me know

      May 4

    • G1L1O N.

      Can't make it. I have to travel for work to Miami last minute stuff. :(

      May 6

  • Jerry K

    Can't make it.. would be cutting it to close on other commitments..

    May 5

    • Skid V.

      You can leave early if you want. I'm pretty loosey goosey with who wants to stay on the ride and stuff, But if you have commitments that you would rather not miss, it's cool. Maybe next yr? Or a different location.

      May 6

  • Skid V.

    This is the route I'm thinking of taking.

      LOL, I now see the detour to Zimbabwe. It has us departing Houston to Ft Worth and ending up in Zimbabwe. That's pretty funny through my mobile device. But on a computer the route appeared correct. Weird! :)

      2 · April 29

    • Skid V.

      LOL I figured we would stop at a little café I know of in Harare and then jet back to make the show. ....Who's in?

  • Natalie

    Which roads are you taking down there? - not sure I can go the with my 250 (plus I may be slowing you all up) but may go as a passenger or just drive down.

    1 · April 21

    • Skid V.

      Natalie, I'll be taking mostly highway roads down there. From Bridgewater, take 206 down to 295 to 68 via google. Don't worry about keeping up, we'll be hitting 1 major highway and that will only be for a few miles. Plus we'll be leaving early enough to take a lazy pace and still get there early. No worries kiddo.

    • Natalie

      Thanks Skid. I think I'll be a pillion this time. I have a Bike MS cycling tour next weekend and can't risk doing something stupid the week before.

  • Debbie

    I have a beer festival this day. I will make this one year.

    April 21

    • Skid V.

      Debbie, I was thinking of going sunday as well. just didn't want to put down 2 meetups as this could get confusing.

      April 21

    • Debbie

      I think that is Mothers Day. Not in the cards for me.

      1 · April 21
