What's up, Steve -

We are definitely riding. It's pretty much on every Wed. Usually 8 - 12 riders.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

actually, its now usually 14 to 18 riders each time. last week was an incredibly low turn out! there are still new people showing up. i fully expect several 20+ person rides before the summer is out.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

any word on meeting places, route lengths, etc? Thanks guys.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

i just realized i gotta get my moby buckled down for wednesday.... about what is the speed?

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

....of the rides..

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

we meet at the other side cafe in boston, right on the corner of newbury street and mass ave. meetup time is between 6:30 and 7. the rides are different every time. sometimes theyre short, sometimes theyre long. it all depends on what people want to do. generally we are doing a much better job of sticking together, and keeping bikes of different speeds in one group. generally, you want to be able to go at last 25mph.

skldks'ds

20+ is easyi deffinettly know enough mopeds, but none are willing to ride the commute i do.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

You guys couldn't throw one more person in the members for this week? I really didnt used to care about being a member but now I kinda feel like i'm just getting fucked with. Cool.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

justin, im not completely sure what the process is, but i think the requirement for three rides AND a fixit is being held up. at least thats my speculation, as all four of the new members have done the three rides, and were also at the last fixing session.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

ahh, i see....

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

would fixing Joe's bike with my parts count as a fix it?

My stock magnum has a habit of just sitting there unbroken.

i love to just come with tool and help other people tho.

then someone can help me tune my kit at some point.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

rain or shine?

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

of course we have to kick you around in the private kHz forum where these things should be discussed and have a group consensus :)

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

we have yet to experience a real rain out. if its pouring, though, most people probably wouldnt show up. i know at least a few would go to the other side to hang out, but i wouldnt count on a real ride in that situation.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

Sabat is a ROAD WARRIOR

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

i go about twenty-eight, usually me and corey are in the back, so if you are around that speed we can all hang out! if you are slower i can lag with you.

come!!! i can get pictures, it's usually a lot of fun. gas up and come to the otherside on wednesday.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

You GO Girl!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

i'm gonna try to get down there.. my ped does 30ish sometimes. usally hovers around 26-28.. is that end of the pack?

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

No way man... that's good cruising speed for a group ride.. no worries!

We want to see you down here!

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

MIKE ROCK wanted some forks from me.. do you think he'll be there? ah I'll just bring them with me anyway. JAY!!! do you have and batavus clutch covers???

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

Mike usually makes it but if he doesn't you can give em to me or Sabat and he will get them

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

Popping in to say:

My bike is a mess, but I have parts from the junkyard on the way. Can't wait to swarm with you guys again.

DON'T FORGET ME!!!!!!!!!! ;)

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

Hey Jordan!

Good to see ya!

There are a couple of fixits scheduled..... Tim mentioned to me that he wants to host one at MIT before the group ride on Wednesday... and Josh mentioned that he wants to have one at his Machine shop at WIT...

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

Hey andrew! i really wanna ride my own bike this week on wednesday is there any way you can help me fix it tomorrow or tuesday? justin i think you just reached your 3 rides a fixit should be held pretty soon. i could probably hold the next one this week.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

I work for a robotics company, so it's got a full machine shop..

Long story short: I need a new throttle slide and keep getting ones that are too big. So I ordered a couple different ones just to be sure.

Also, my headlight is burnt out, and that's on its way.

Besides that -- I've got new tires strapped on, and I'm psyched to ride.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

oh yeah amanda suggested we hit up cabots in newton which sounds like a good idea. last weeks ride was really short and i think we should go for a really long ride this week

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

jordan do you guys have a cnc machine?

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

cabots! too close to home. the ghosts of christmas past will be there, and i dont want to see them.

Re: What's Boston doing this Wed.?

this is how much i want to come down there.

I drive a two door Cavalier. If i cant get my friends pickup (probably wont be able to) I'm thinking I'm going to take out my passenger seat an see if the bat will fit. should be great..
