I was planning on joining you guys but when I was rolling my bike out of my garage I noticed a "thumping" sound, the bike was off and in neutral... Had to troubleshoot it and it turns out my front sproket needed to be tightened a bit. I would have been 30-40 mins late. Next time! Hope you guys had fun.

I think my 2 hours of stop and go on 26 with the sun on my back took more out than the ride its self. One thing is for sure, i am adding red midlife crisis Miatas to my list of road hazard cars.

Give him our best if you see him. He seemed fine on the 30 slog and gave me a thumbs up - looks like just the front cowl and a mirror. Lucky bastard landed in the grass.

His first time on Meissner and that little blind hill followed by the sharp left got him. I remember the pucker the first time I went over that hill. You don't expect a sharp turn when you pop over the hill . . .

That's a fun one I always remember after the first time...burried my peg so far into the asphalt that I shaved my boot down and I ride with my toes on the peg. Glad he's alright.

Drazen that is the way to respond to that situation . . . unfortunately it is hard to resist getting on the brakes and locking a tire (usually the rear) = low side. Get over as far as you can and trail brake if you can. It takes a long time to get over the natural instinct and even good riders will revert to natural instinct when the moment comes . . .

New rider ride, July 11
Going to paste in a post I created for this wednesday below - but here is the important part:

If possible, it would be great if the 'normal' ride could leave about 15 minutes before the 'new rider's ride'.

want to avoid the confusion and potential cluster for the new riders...

Thanks!

of course, that will require somebody steppin' up and leading that group early.

West Side Wednesday Ride this week, July 11 - meeting point is Sylvan Chevron / Starbucks: HERE

5:30: will start discussion for new riders (probably inside the AC of Starbucks)

6:15: Normal WSWR ride will depart

6:30: New rider's ride will depart

Probably end up back there, or maybe stop at skyline burger joint...

topics: Survival Reactions and how to AVOID them; Throttle Rule #1; body and bike dynamics and physics for a newer rider... plus topics YOU wanna chat about

come on out and let's enjoy the summer!

Good to see clay still keeping people off the pavement.
Sarah had fun coming 2up with us. I did get a little case of tiller envy though. That thing looks sweet in yellow. I trust sax got the limping gixxer home ok.
