Ok..i know it might be raining today and if it is..so let it be, but i still need to feed. anyone want to meet for brunch. i suggest caffe Barneys by UBC. it may be far for some, but if someone has an idea as to where ,we can all meet and sit around and talk ,than please do so. i figure 11 to 12 is a good time.

well I highly doubt anybody will come out if it's raining....

but i'm willing.... we'll show all those wannabe pansy-ass riders what a real bike rider is made of :) :D :laughing most bike riders freak when it rains, most peoples bikes never see water unless they are washing it, too bad for them, they are missing out....

well, it will be cloudy tommorrow with off/on sunny/rain light rain breaks according to theweathernetwork.com

http://www.theweathernetwork.com/cities/can/vancouver_BC.htm

I guess it all depends where we ride, we should stay away from the cloudy parts of the lowermainland, we should be able to out-run the clouds no problem :) :D

k, just finished talkin to Bugs.

He's just finally got the bike loaded onto his truck :) so, he'll might come out sometime after 3, he's not entirely sure yet, but he's gonna post if he is or not.

Here's the location Bugs in case you decide to come out.

9180 King George Highway
Suite 203

at the corner of King George and 92nd st.

so basically if you take the Patullo Bridge, it turns into king george and follow that road up to 92nd, then you'll want to turn left, that small 2 story building on the corner of 92nd is his place. You'll see our bikes in the lot, can't miss us.

Another way is if your taking the Alex Fraser Bridge, take the Nordel Way turn off (first exit), then follow nordel way all he way to King George Hwy (nordel way turns into 88th ave after you pass Scott rd, so dont worry, just follow the road till you hit king george hwy), then turn left onto King George Hwy, and follow that up to 92nd (first light I believe), and turn right.... you'll see the building, only 1 there, our bikes will be in the lot.

03-29-2002, 06:31 PM
damn, we should have check the forum at Digi's, we stay till around 4 anyway, jim had some stickers made up, but he's gonna redo them for him. I'm sure if you ask Digi what you want made up, he'll do it for ya and give them to ya on the next weekend ride or something.

Anyhow, after we left, cbr600f2 and I went down to colebrook rd (home to my highspeed testing), then we went up and I took him around a few of the local twisties near my place, then we stopped at the chevron at the scales under the alex fraser bridge, then we parted home. It was just a nice short and sweet ride....

It's clearing up now, I see blue sky out in ladner, so hopefully it will be nice tommorrow :)

03-29-2002, 07:18 PM
ya it was pretty fun, we got to hit the nordel exit towards the chevron at the scales, so that was fun, nice highspeed bend....

oh hey.... so is the bike still due to be ready tommorrow after you get off work? just pm to let me know whats happening. if the weather is decent tommorrow, i'll be going to Jims for the bike tune day.... then head down for the bike if it's ready when you get off work.... but I doubt tommorrow will be nice, dunno though.... we'll see....

03-29-2002, 07:39 PM
bike should be ready tomorow. i will drop it off in the morning and should be running by 6 pm. You have the transfer forms, so it would be a good idea to have your dad come in and transfer the ownership, so he can ride this weekend.
I'll pm you or let me know whatnumber I can call you at!
