Boston Ride Tonight!

OK

The weather is lookin sketchy... lets keep an eye on it.....

The Doppler shows a HUGE rain system over Albany moving this way....

It may or may not clear Boston by ride time......

Let's figure out some indoor fun so we have an alternative activity to do in case we get hit with thunderstorms!

Suggestions?

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

i rode to work, forecasting a break in the clouds by the time i leave. i fear this was a mistake. like i said in the last thread, people are welcome to hang out at my place, but maybe thats a little boring and also out of the way.

if it IS really rainy, i may just take the opportunity to work on my bikes so i can have the '62 ready for next week.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

Well we could always do a bowling thing like the one we did at our rally..... although I havent bowled since my hogh school Senior prom... and yes they did have automatic pin resetters back then... and we should maybe open discussion about a rain date for the ride... say Friday and see if people are available then!

We can also try to set up a group fixit Sat or Sun... with a nice ride afterwards!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

I get all my forcasts from Al Kaprielian om My tv!

Hmmmm....If we move the ride I probably cannot make it. It would be nice to sit down and discuss things....

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

why do immediately picture the scene from good fellas when i read "sit down and discuss things"

somone ....has been disloyal....

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

I mean talk and not over the sound of the moped engine when I am say, "what I cannot hear you?...what?"

Just a suggestion.

We don't take people out...we take there mopeds out...I have a favorite burial spot...

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

"their" moped...oops..

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

Bowling is always a hoot. So is riding in the rain.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

Actually, after the ride to concord, I had the pleasure of riding home in a heavy downpour. It was so not fun....I was soaking wet and cold. I talking about a monsoon type rain...

Boston Ride Tonight!

I hope to be there at least for the gathering at the OtherSide. Is that where folks are meeting weather permitting?

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

Yeah I remember that night.....

Sabat Mike and I had to ride from the Arlington end of Mass Ave all the way to ack Bay and we were totally soaked to the skin!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

yeppes the Other Side...

It may blow past us by meet up time!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

Hey, everyone -

Like usual, wet road and my lack of fenders probably = no ride for me. But if there's a mini break and dry roads for the meet up, I might just come down and say hi.

kHz members...check out my post in the kHz forum!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

based on my analysis of the <"doppler radar":http://www.weather.com/weather/map/interactive/02138?from=36hr_maps&zoom=8&interactiveMapLayer=radar>;, it appears that this storm will pass us by. hit the play button and zoom out, and you will that it appears its just going to skirt boston, avoiding a direct hit.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

That's what I'm hoping for but theres pretty heavy weather all the way to Ithaca!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

but its all heading north-north-east, and not toward us!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

cool cool....

maybe we can get Susan to do a sun dance/incantation to ward off the rain!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

Hi guys/gals, (my first post - woo hoo)

I was excited to get out and meet you guys tonight. Rode into work, or should I say, almost rode into work. Rain didn't stop me - my moby did. I had to abandon it near Dali's in Somerville. Don't exactly know what's wrong. I didn't have time to look at it. Gas flow might be the problem. I'm down for the fixit...

Anyway, I guess I can only meet up on foot and only until 9. Sounds like it may be an indoor event anyway.

You know KINGS Bowlarama is near the Other Side.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

That sounds like it could be fun IF we get rained out!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

during my lunch break, i'll get right on it.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

I knew we could count you Susan!

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

First step -- was your carb still attached ?

We can ride doubles on mine to the Other Side, if you want.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

ha ha ha. very funny, sheila. that happened once, ok, twice...

it was cutting in and out. if I let it sit it would work fine for a couple secs. then die out. I think I could get it going road side. might stop by it right after work and see what I can do.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

sheila,

wanna meet me at the corner of beacon and washington (Dali's) around 6 - 6:30? I've got some tools. maybe ride doubs to OtherSide it we can't get it going?

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

Phil,

That is right up the street from me. I park my car on Washington and walk to work.

Where is it...maybe I will steal it.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

could be the infamous moby condensor problem

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

that would suck! Actually, mine old one would always idle fine. Only at higher speeds was it a problem.

Re: Boston Ride Tonight!

Because Al said it would rain and I always believe him...ALWAYS!
