Isn't your son Luke, Mr. Silver?
Exactly right, Ed. Luke got a strong work ethic from his mother, I guess. (If I could just talk him into getting a haircut... ) ;) His buddy is a great kid, too.

He's riding my old FZ1 and yeah, he goes pretty good. Makes me a little nervous when he sits flat on the seat and leans way over, but... yeah... fatherly nerves, I guess.

Well, bummer; I was just looking at this again and considering it. Then I remembered that my wife's birthday is that weekend. That would have been a mistake. Another time maybe.

I need to remember to try and text Gene (2qk4u) and John (Topeka's Finest) to see if they can join up.

I've been working with routes. As some have mentioned, the roads are pretty spread out over there. Lots of space between fun stuff, so the routes are longish for groups (400 and change) to get us over Talimena and back, Magazine and 123 etc... so I'll work extra hard at publishing the routes so folks can ride a little more independently if they want. Longish routes are fine with me, but they get wonky if we have a hesitant passer or two, or if folks want to cruise more. Some of the roads over there are so spread out, there are places where we can slightly raise the top speed limit in select stretches.

Hope you guys have a good safe ride.

Woo... I need to order a tire.

I'll get the routes uploaded and posted Monday. :)

As I said before, they are 400-milers which is a lot for a group, but there's a lot more open road over there than our usual hooners.

Well I'm sad you won't make it. I was looking forward to chasing you around some more ;) I'm going to start trying to make more of these rides. Maybe in the fall.
