2014 Solstice Ride!!! December 20th.
« on: December 07, 2014, 06:09:09 PM »
Saturday the 20th!!!
We annually do a ride to the border of Utah on the old hiway 6 as close to the winter solstice as possible.
This will be the 15th or 19th wheneveral trip. It all started because of Hunter S. Thompson, anyway.
We will be meeting at the Laughing Dog Coffee Shop at Broadway and Monument Road at 9:00am and leave there at about 10:00.
Normally we ride down Broadway to Fruita and then out to the border on the old hiway. After some bike discussion, and taking in the scenery we will return to Fruita for a lunch break at Tapatio's on the South side of the interstate.
Remember to dress warm and fuel up before meeting at the coffee shop.
For more info call me (Rick) at 243.5094.

Who are the grateful dead? And why do they keep following me?

Thanks for the air, Rick B! Sorry to all that were there for taking off like that... I didn't want to be behind anyone since I have to plan my stops a good 1/4 mile ahead... I didn't want to run into anyone! I had to head back to work where there was nothing happening.. I wanted to eat with the gang and chat... hopefully I can start making more stuff now that I have a running (poorly but getting there) bike.

That was the first time that bike has been on the road since 1994... That's 140 in dog years!

I enjoyed seeing all the bikes that were there!
