alrighty, we started talking about this in the rms thread, but I thought I'd get a proper thread going so we could set up a time and place for everyone to meet.

Evil-E, I can swing by your place in the morning and then we can both go to wherever everyone else is meeting?

who all is interested in riding on sat? if so, where and when? any ideas for a destination?

cos, when are you done the b-day thingy?

input, I need input!

I have to meet my landlords at 9:30, so I won't be able leave until about 10. I can meet you guys wherever though. starbucks? chevron on 232nd? stanley park? I'm free pretty much all day, and I haven't ridden my bike all winter so I don't care where we go, as long as I'm riding.

I live out in Abby but wouldn't mind hooking up for a ride as I have yet to met many people from here, so if possible get back to me if you guys would be able to swing by the chevron on 232nd and met there I could probably get others from out here as well.
Post back!

1. chevron off the 232nd exit.
2. somewhere off the willingdon exit and some other place...

I'm in but not that early maybe 10:30 - 11am. Just name the place. I am in Burnaby but will meet anywhere. Well maybe not Hope.

Miteorite
04-26-2002, 02:29 AM
what's the plan?
where's everyone going?
i dont want to wake up at 8..
or at 11 :D

blazinr6
04-26-2002, 02:57 AM
dafnip: i'd be up to ride around 11 too and am in burnaby...we could hook up and meet the rest of the group around then

where you guys planning to ride?

Evil-E
04-26-2002, 09:25 AM
Okay here is the plan.... Chevron at 232nd at 11:00... we'll wait till 11:30 then ride.... I know some good back roads from there that will lead us to so more good backroads that will eventually head to mission, then we can possibly ride up to harrison...

and then Cosworth will be on his side of the river so he can get home in time....

all of this providing the weather is good.....

SOUND GOOD GUYS?

Evil-E
04-26-2002, 10:50 AM
Well the weathernetwork says it will be nice and sunny ;)

cosworth
04-26-2002, 10:51 AM
The Harrison ride would be great. I drove it not too long ago and it looked to be a great haul.

doug
04-26-2002, 10:54 AM
i'm in. if i was a big fuckin retard 1 i'd rig up a camera mount right away too. would be great to get a few hours of video of the trip. i need something to practice editing skillz on.

cosworth
04-26-2002, 10:58 AM
Doug, nothing was said about going past Hope you bfr1.

Evil-E
04-26-2002, 10:59 AM
I'll most likely be ridng 2up... but that doesn't mean I can't still haul ass...... allthough if we get there to quick the day will be over too fast ;)

I know such a nice route, at least to get to mission, totally nice mellow twisties and a really nice view of baker on part of the ride...

now i'm getting all stoked for the ride...

doug
04-26-2002, 11:21 AM
i have dibs on the spot behind evil! :D

bender
04-26-2002, 11:40 AM
cool, I'm there, that works perfectly for me. I know the route he's talking about and it's super fun. except for that one blind corner. ;)

232nd @ 11:00!
see you guys there!

cosworth
04-26-2002, 11:43 AM
We should try and fill up the Albion with all sportbikes...

cosworth
04-26-2002, 12:16 PM
I gotta do the morning ride guys. The one with Xyban and Dano18. I'm meeting them at Esso on Hastings at 9 and we're going for brekky then some city/rural rides. Dano has to help someone move and I have to pick up a car tomorrow and then watch the game at 4, then to a b-bday party. Jam packed. If I leave it for the aft and go to Harrison I won't get to ride too long.


Sunday is shaping up to be pocketbike race day again at Revy.....

which means saturday nite is fixit nite. gotta find better brake levers.

cosworth
04-26-2002, 12:26 PM
You just need the lever part, not the mount. I know what to look for. I'll try and nab some on Saturday while I'm out and about.

doug
04-26-2002, 12:36 PM
should give you the brake cable so we know the nub fits properly.

Evil-E
04-26-2002, 06:14 PM
Okay so 11:00 gives everyone plenty of time to be there, will maybe get a quick burger first at the mini fast food whitespot they have there....(chevron) then we'll leave at 11:30...

so be there and gassed up and ready by 11:30...

or at least doing laps on the cloverleafs............ ;)

04-26-2002, 08:49 PM
Floman: you can meet me off hwy#1 in burnaby and we'll go from there if you want...around 11 so we'll be in time to meet the other guys

FloMan
04-26-2002, 08:56 PM
Sounds good ! Where abouts do you get on no.1?...I'll catch up with you . I usually take marine dr. all the way to brunette and I spill into the hwy from there but if you tell me where abouts you live I can meet you somewhere in the neibourghood.

blazinr6
04-26-2002, 09:01 PM
floman and dafnip: i live just off the gaglardi exit of hwy#1 beside lougheed mall...if you know the area you can meet me at the coffee shop beside red robins by the mall at 10:45 ....if you dont know it i can wait off the side of the freeway by gaglardi exit and i'll just jump on when you come by....either way, post up and we'll head out tomorrow

FloMan
04-26-2002, 09:12 PM
Blazin' ...I will come into no.1 just like I always do...off Brunette...why don't we meet a short distance from where Brunette goes into the hwy...at exactly 10:45...I will time it so I am there in time ..with precision ...we don't wanna get ticket for stoping on the side of the hwy...
Deal?
At precisely 10:45am , about a hundred meters from the Brunette ramp(that comes into the hwy) ...
Anyone else who wants to make the 10:45 there...let us know...so we don't leave without you...

blazinr6
04-26-2002, 09:21 PM
Floman: sounds good, i'll be there at 10:45 sharp...see ya then:rider

why not meet at boone county? its just up the brunette onramp across from the hotel. easy to find, and easy to wait for everyone.

FloMan
04-27-2002, 12:43 AM
I think that meeting on the hwy is a good idea...it 's efficient easy ....I will be there...from 10:45 till 10:50...let's see who's got this timing shit under control...All of you navy seals should have no problem ...:gun

Just a heads up- I`ve heard from a couple buddies on the Island that there are undercover cops posing as riders in sportbike groups.One undercover cop I heard rides a later model 1100 Katana with a brand new Joe Rocket jacket,apparently they get all interested in your ride asking all kinds of questions,copying license numbers,then he radio`s his buddies and they wait for you.I don`t want to freak anyone out but if someone starts asking a whole bunch of questions,just say no:laughing ........ken.

doug
04-27-2002, 09:50 AM
they can copy all the fucking plate numbers they want. when you don't do anything wrong they can't ticket you.

if i get a ticket riding with an undercover cop, he'll be getting one too.

and since there is no such thing as a katana 1100, i'd say the story is pure BS.

FloMan
04-27-2002, 10:01 AM
You wanna know what I think?..I think that's just another one of those unfunded rumors ...besides ...we've all seen "The Fast and The Furious"....
I really duobt that our local cops would invest that much Mulla in a speeding ticket operation, because that's all there would be...

I can see it in my head..." we're all pulled over at some gas station in Hope ...on the way back when he(the under cover cop) pulles his gun and waves it around with a crazy look on his face ...He means business!...." Frreeeeez scum bags! " he yells...
" You all got what's coming to you!" Then he puts his Beretta between his legs and starts writing speeding tickets...to everyone....except the hot girl....Her ...he asks out...

bender

LOL, that's funny.



I don't think we'd let anyone with a katana ride with us anyhow , would we? :rolleyes
