I usually ride solo on the weekday evenings after work and I live on my V on weekends (I convinced my girlfriend to buy gear and go 2 up, smh), but I'd like to find some people to ride with here and there.

I've been off road with my V a couple times, but nothing to major. Lost it in some deep sand with no damage, just lessons learned.

I've install puig crash bar guards. A pro-grip tank protector Set. Highway engine guard pegs. And some sweet RED rim tape. Currently building a passenger backrest for the GF.
I started a new AZ thread. A couple of us will be going for a ride this saturday - Arizona Riders Meet Thread

I know Lanny (biglefti) is on another ride Saturday, so he's likely out. Had a good ride to Roosevelt with him and a buddy of his on Tuesday - that dude can FLY on the gravel.

Indeed, a great ride day, great group of guys. Eddie earned the 'fast' part of his screen name, and is indeed the route guru. Wear sunglasses when you ride with him because the rare times he uses the brakes, those lights on the back of his bike may burn out your retinas. Joey likes his throttle pretty good too, I could see him itching to pull a wheelie on the freeway. And no - he didn't pull a gun on anyone. Skip's not yet an inmate here, but another solid dude on a bike - a lifetime on 2 wheels, smooth and in control all the way.

Thanks guys, let's get to work on another ride in '17.

Arizona could be one of the best places in the US to cure cabin fever, snow blindness and sundry other winter-related afflictions best treated with throttle.... come on down!

Lol well said! Yes Eddie doesn't play around when it comes to giving his name legitimacy. You go after it too! Haha love those lights man. No more freeway wheelies for me man! I did pop it up for a tiny bit when no one was around.
Definitely looking forward to the next adventure! I felt safe around everyone and didn't feel like we were pushing it too hard or waiting for the short bus to catch up. I did however take a bit for me to warm up!

Haha, I'm old enough not to try new tricks in the wrong places but I'm young enough to execute old tricks in the right places. My right nipple is chapped! Maybe I should look into that vest
