    Weekday riding isn't just for the retired anymore.

    I put the Gerbings on at 6:00 AM this morning and made the 55 mile trip to work. Temp was 27 when I pulled out of the garage, but I was toasty warm.

    Is it 4:30 yet? The 55 mile trip home may have to be extended tonight.

    N E Wing, I thought you guys moved out of the country. Nobodys heard from either of you since last spring. Hope everything is well. +1 on the heated gear. I just got a heated pant liner to go with my jacket liner. Have not tried it out yet but have high hopes for it. Take care & tell Mark hello!!!

    Hello guys. We are still around, just haven't been on the board much. Read it nearly every day, but just haven't posted much.

    I didn't ride nearly as much as I would have liked this summer. Who knew that a kids soccer team would take up so much time. How have you guys been?

    Dave, Bob and Steve or going riding Sat. Don't know were they are meeting up. I'm still down from knee surgery. Can't bend knee far enough to shift bike. So I'll be stuck at home poor, poor me. Nice weather for a ride and I can't go.

    Great have fun wish I could of gone. I tried to get on bike Sat. like I said still can not bend knee enough to shift. I went over to Bob's Fri and set and watched him and Dave work on there bikes. I told Bob he just can't leave it alone. I broke both my ague shields Fog lights the last time I rode not happy about that as it's $125 each to replace them. So I may just have a some dark holes for awhile.

    We rode to new Honda dealer in Clarkson NE. (he has several used Goldwings and is just getting started) Doug bought a trailer. My trike was the only bike that had a hitch with ball (others had hitch but did not have receiver and ball on bike) so I towed it back to Lincoln for him. We had ten bikes on the ride we stopped in Grand Island for lunch. We will be doing some picnic rides this summer. We try to ride from the NW 48st and Hyw 34 Casey's every Sat. During summer we meet at 8:00 and leave at 8:30 AM. But right now it depends on weather this last weekend we meet and left an hour later. Don't know plans for this weekend yet but will add it here when I hear. After you been on ride with us we add you to our text list that gets sent out. On Thursday or Friday. From Dave or Bob M..

    The ride this Saturday meet up at Casey's NW 48th & Hyw 34 8:00 AM side stands up at 8:30 Am. So hope to see you there.

    For second weekend in a row we had 10 bikes. A Kawasaki and a Yamaha the rest were wings. Two 1800, one 1500 Motortrikes, one GL1200 and four GL1800 bikes. We rode south on Hyw 77 than to Brownsville Ne crossed over into MO than rode north on Loose Hills. We stopped in Neb City, NE for lunch. Than Hyw 2 to Lincoln.
