Thumbs up WESTSIDE THURSDAY NIGHT RIDES - February 25th

WESTSIDE THURSDAY NIGHT RIDES

The days are starting to get a bit longer and it's time to start riding again.
If the weather permits we'll meet at the Imbrie Dr. Chevron station near HWY 26 and Cornelius Pass Rd. Kickstand Up at 6:05 PM (1805)
The rides are normally between 90 to 120 minutes in length.

We welcome all levels of rider skills but stress safety.

A social time dinner gathering normally follows these rides at Lupe's Escape at 19405 SW T.V. Hwy

If Mother Nature doesn't cooperate on the weather we'll still meet for dinner around 7:00 PMish

Hope to see you on one of our rides.
Dick

VERY OPTIMISTIC!
The seven day forecast has Thursday as the warmest.
Could you keep your fingers crossed for us too?

I'm going. Long term for cast is clear from Sunday afternoon, thru the rest of the week. Sunset is 5:52pm so should be able to get a short ride in.

The weather looks like it will cooperate. If I can swing it I will be there. 6:05pm departure...looks like a bit of a night ride?

Normally I'd try to be there, but I'm in Cali for work. Might be to pooped for a ride, but will likely at least show up for mandatory dinner after.

Andenthal,
We'll ALL miss having you along.
LEE650,
Thank you for keeping those fingers crossed.

I won't be tanking us up into the hills in the dark. The ride will last about an hour at a reasonable pace. I'll recon our route in mid-afternoon Thursday.
Again, all skill levels are welcomed.

Hope you can join us for the dinner good times.

Dick

ALL,
For many this will be your first group ride of the year. Please take 30 minutes or so tonight to give your ride a mechanical once over. Remember to check those tire pressures!
We'll establish a buddy system and assign a 'sweep' for added security before Kickstands Up.
The ride will head West through back roads North of Hillsboro, Cornelius and Forest Grove. A short run South on HWY 47 and then East headed back on the South sides of Forest Grove, Cornelius and Hillsboro.
We'll end up at Lupe's Escape shortly after 7:00PM for social time and dinner

Should be a good start to our year!
Dick

Uhg tough choice for me, but I mostly don't want to wait around at work for another couple hours and then get home late... Instead, I'm going to work on my new-to-me DR650 that needs some lovin'.

Have fun, folks - see ya next time.

Hmm. I would want to supermoto a night ride and I need new tires. Think I'm going to skip this one and meet you all for dinner.

Thanks for posting this up and see you tonight!

PS. Got new tires coming in next week.
