Rippin is alive! Actual sighting

Discussion in 'Moses Lake' started by Saddletramp, Aug 18, 2012.

  1. I was fueling up my bike for a trip over the Cascades early in the morning at our local Chevron station. This hairy, bearded dude suddenly comes up & starts jawing about my bike. I was sure it was the Rippin himself but he was much thinner. After he spewed a bunch of info about TBM850 etc & a bunch of other old bikes from the past I knew it was the man himself.

    I pulled off my helmet & said "Rippin' you're talking to Saddletramp"! He laughed and we got caught up.

    He has lost a "third-grader" (his words) in weight. He looked great. He said he's been busy with some heavy-duty family issues but otherwise is doing fine.

    It was great to see an old friend again! :mrgreen:

  7. Glad to hear he is doing OK :mfclap:
  8. Well common now. Would we really want Rippin to be 'OK'. :mrgreen:
  9. Was missing scraping the green crayon marks off my screen.

    He looks like a Yeti and isn't that hard to spot. Pour some gas and oil on the ground, park an old bike near it....he'll be there.

    I'm not being patronizing, when I say that is by far the BEST response since becoming a member...AJ

  18. Dude I was totally at Steamboat Rock on Banks Lake last Sunday. It was awesome was it not?

    Good to hear Rippin is still rippin.
  19. I ran into Rippin at the hardware store this morning while I was out on my cafe. I had never met him until then. WOW. Great guy. We ended up going over and looking at his collection, and talking bikes for about an hour. Definately going to have to hit him up to go riding sometime. The guy is a blast to be around.
