      Yes, it's getting close to that time again…last year was a bit of a non-season for me, but I want to get a few rides in this year starting with a season openner.

      Anyone give this any thought yet?

      I'm thinking April 25-27 or May 23-25 (my work schedule & personal life is wonky). Somewhere on those weekends…just thinking a meet & greet type of ride. I would ride to Calgary or Edmonton to meet up, or if you guys want to meet in Red Deer and have both Calgary & Edmonton groups ride out…very cool…or even Rocky Mountain House (tried that a few years ago & didn't get many takers…only one actually)

      Anyway, speak up & let's get this season rolling!

      Later.

          I’ll be off on parental leave with my little guy next month, so my weekends might be wonky, but the May weekend I’d likely be good to head down from Edmonton to Red Deer and go for a rip, weather permitting of course.

              I’m going to be going for a ride, aiming for May 24th (Saturday), if anyone is interested…thinking about doing a Timmies Loop…start in Lacombe at Timmies, go to Rocky Mountain House Timmies, then to Innisfail Timmies and home again…

                    I guess that’s two in for the ride…maybe a few more?

                    Waffles at the end of the ride? Start earlier in the day and end around noon ish?

                      Anyone still in for May 24th, or should we plan a different date…I’m still riding.
                      I haven’t heard back from my insurance about getting insurance for the Honda…grrr, I’ll have to follow up on it  ::)

                      I may have to make a run down to sign papers on May 23rd…then run around & get registration…  :-\

                        I won’t be getting new tires on my bike until the 30th, so I’m out…plus I’m in ft mac.
                        FYI madjak, when you need new tires for your st you should really think about getting pilot road 4 GTs

                          I am trying to switch shifts so I can go !!! Hopefully all will work out !!

                          Nice loop…quiet back highways …I travel those roads a bit ….pretty scenic !! I actually like the “Rainy Creek Road”  especially the “BIG hill” by Leslieville. A great view of the west !!! (Sorry off topic. LOL)

                          Can’t wait to put some miles on 2 wheels !!! Been a loooooong winter !!!
