Hey, I never said I was a good salesman. :p

Got to entice new riders to come out somehow. S2S isnt bad when you are new rider.

Doing squamish today with my pops. Only been riding this summer and the ride is super easy and fun.

There's a testimonial for any new riders on the fence haha

I agree, I always enjoyed the S2S but I always left very early to return before the return rush. It doesn't seem like much fun these days. No more leaving at 6:00 a.m.

Monday, September 28th, Ride is ON!
Be at the church by 5:50, 2 groups leaving from 6pm
Your own pace group leaves 1st, New rider friendly (with leader and sweeper) leaves shortly after

All riders are welcome -

Please wear protective gear. It's for your own safety. This is especially strongly suggested for the riders in the new riders group.

It's the new rush hour. If you don't head back by at least 1:00 pm it seems to turn into a shit show. And to tell you my truth, drivers are getting worse and worse!! All opinions are welcome.

Sorry Crvle1 for not joining you guys afterwards.
There were two ladies with HD's that were bummed out by their peers. (HD riders). And they weren't comfortable enought to ride back in the dark. So I "escorted" back to Vancouver. That was fun.. speed limit all the way back!!!

Tomorrow i'm meeting up with them for another run!!! :D

Hey Mike, no worries at all. I think i know who you are talking about. Good to see you up there, even if it was for a min or 2.

Thanks Mike for letting my new rider ride with another woman Harley rider, I have tried to get it across that the pace of sport-bikes is a little different than cruisers with floor-boards that grind at little above posted speed in corners. Honestly we were just coasting along and I watched the Harley touch down first the boards then the case, scarey stuff.

You're most welcome. She mentioned that she tends to ride fast and that I should lead to keep her from exceeding her abilities. So I ran thru the turns at the suggested speeds, ( yellow speed limit signs) and it worked out well.
