that sounds good. Most of the other guys who want to come are out in richmond / vancouver area, so most likely they will want to meet out there somewhere....

HI, people whats the plan? when where we'll be meeting?

Endo
03-13-2002, 11:53 PM
you know what, since it's not raining and not too cold out (no ice on the ground) I think I'm gunna go out for a ride right now. I mean I only have 400kms on the bike and I've had it for almost a month. Of course it doesn't help that the last time I've been out on it was when jonathan and myself went to Iona beach (I know thats not how you spell it) over a week ago.

Getting the group meeting up at around 11 - 11:30 would be better cause some people have to take off eariler, but we can meet up with you later on during the day when you get out of class.

Basically i'm just waiting on R6Rider to post the meeting time and place.

OK guys, lets have the boys from ND/Surrey meet the Richmond guys at chevron on No. 5 road and Steveston at 11 so we can meet the vancouver people at 41st and Granville(Shell) at around 11:30. Let me know if this works and if not suggest something else...my schedule is very flexible.

Hey endo, my name is Ehsan, I went to Richmond High(Graduated 99)...I hope I know you...I don't know a single sole in Richmond who rides(shit, I just left myself open for a shot:p )

Anyways, let me know if this works for everyone.

Just got back it was suprisingly warm(or should I say warmer)... It was a great ride especially for CG but I won't say why, I don't want to spoil his fun...

Anyways, Endo and I will probably be out tomorrow as well so if anyone is interested either post or call 708 7279(pgr)...

Hey Mick, what happened to you? The clouds scare you off?:laughing

oh my god OH my God.... OH MY GOD!!! what a sWWEEET FUCKING RIDE :)

I'll cut to the chase.... we ride, we head down to RMS, go inside, a buddy of mine who works at the repo depot a next door to RMS comes in a says hi. He tells me he has a R1 they just repoed. I ask if we can test ride it, so he says sure :)

So we all got to take the R1 (2000 model) for a spin, it was cool, it definatly has more juice down low, but it's not as much as I would think compared to a 600.

Then we took off and stopped at the Silver City Riverport Theatre's parking lot, they were empty, so Bluestone proceeded to practice stunts and try to do his first real wheelie....

Anyhow, after watching for a few minutes, I thought what the hell, i'll give a wheelie a shot.

So on my first run, I run it up to 8k, turn the throttle off, then wacked it opened, bike didn't rise, came close, it wanted to, but didn't. So ok, i'll rev it up higher and wack it FULL throttle next time.

So I turn around, try and again.... get it up to 9000 - 9500rpm, closed the throttle completely off, let the bike compress down, then wacked it full wide open throttle. The front came up like there was no TOMMORROW!! :eek I was shitting my pants, the bike kepted on going and going and going and going up, it wouldn't stop, so I backed off, and landed it, then I crushed my nuts :( on my tank :( I stopped, got off the bike and started jumping up and down while grabbing my groin in pain :laughing R6rider, Xenz and Bluestone thought I was jumping for joy :) while I was in a sense, but they were sitting off to the side and were like "SHIIITTT" when my wheel starting rising up. They said it got up at least a foot and a half to 2 feet into the air, basically a standard wheelie height, but man, what a first wheelie :)

Anyhow, I was gonna try and do it again for the camera, but the slack on my chain needed adjusting really really bad, it was flapping all over the place and touching the swingarm, so I decided not to try again. Then I went to Bluestone's and he helped me adjust the chain (btw, thanks)....

to end things off.... WHAT A FUCKING DAY :)

man I wish I coulda kept on riding with you guys, sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. Can't wait till my bike's broken in and I can do wheelies too:) NE wayz looks last night I left my g/f's house at about 1:30 and just as I was pulling in my driveway, none other than hail started falling from the sky. So much of it that my driveway was covered within minutes. I'd say I made it home just in the nick of time. Ehson, it doesn't look like a very good day for a ride so I think I'll pussy out.
