[Note from Admin/Jesse: posting this on behalf of spazegun2213. I wanted an excuse to use the calendar and this was the first thing that came to mind. Keep an eye out for more calendar events! The full conversation is here.]
Titles that also fit... "Come to watch bikes fall over" or "Don't forget leg day ride" ahhh and I could go on for a while.
Well, after a post here and a few on the FB group it looks like there are a few local newbies that are looking to get out and ride. Sooooo I figure I'll "organize" a ride up/down/around Nate Harrison and then maybe food after (there is a pub close by that has amazing burgers). All of you that actually know how to ride are welcome to come and help us pick up our bikes, teach us a thing or two.... or just point and laugh.
Where: Pala Casino Gas Station (click for Google Maps)
When: 7/31, KSU at 8:30am... I'll try to be there by 8am
Route: Gas station then up Nate Harrison (click for Google Maps)
I'm 100% up to exploring more, but I don't know this area that well.
It goes without saying its going to be Hot... like melt your nuts off hot. I'd say bring about 2x as much water as you think you'll need, because you may need to give some to an idiot that loses their water while riding 🙄 Not that I've ever done that.... *cough*
A snack is also a good thing... I'm new to this, and I can say after an hour of wrestling around with a 500lb motorcycle takes a lot out of you. Seriously, I *thought* muscling a 400lb sport bike around was a work out... my tiger just them to "hold my beer."
first aid kit, They are nice to have, and for once I'm riding a bike that has plenty of room for activities!
compressor, if you feel you need one. Frankly my tiger is taking a nap whether I'm at 15psi, or 40psi... but I'll have one anyway
tools/patch kit, and their instructions.... uhh were newbies lol
I'm sure I'm forgetting something, please feel free to tell me what it is and I'll amend this post.
