  2. Will you be wearing your leopard print dress or your storm trooper costume, Cappy?

  3. That mother-in-law post might be the best HCF post ever.

    No, I'll be properly donning my FT3 kit.

  4. Great call out captain and awesome HCF post Nocar! I thought the SSWC only occurred in San Francisco! Everyone around the world is catching on.

    Four!

  5. "Do you guys get smarter everytime you get together?" ~ Old Kodger Knotthead designer engineer, and Pollock Pines Local, who often brings his photo album... as quoted on a Tuesday in 2010 (?)

  6. I got a bounced out of town email from NoHandle.

    Are the El Dorado High boys going on to play basketball against Brazil tonight? Or did they lose to Ghana last week?

  7. I was thinking that Lars would make his return on the same night C-man made his return. Alas, C-man is going under the knife, and Lars is in Mars. SOoo... there is still a chance they will both return on the same day. But wait, Lars didn't actually go anywhere.

  8. Remember that other long lost FT3er who rides a Ti mtn bike. Not the guy with the chianti addiction, the other one. What was his handle again?

  9. I would like to table a topic for discussion this evening and on the HCF. I have changed my schedule and am therefore available for an earlier meet time at the Mosquito lot. I am not sure if that would work for others but I thought I would throw it out there. I think Xterric and Bambi might require a later meet time/roll out.

  10. We've had little success with "on-time" roll outs. For so many reasons someone is always a little bit behind (I'm as guilty as anyone). If your goal is to extend Preber time, then sure.

  11. Back Channel from Xteric, he's up on a derrick. But, will be back in time to ride tonight.

  12. The one called Rock
    May be lost from the flock
    But at least he's free
    Of a knife near his...

    This whole thread is gold. Thanks for cheering me up. Looking at a send off from 'squito. Keep me posted on early/late arrivals.

    Wonder if my new handle shouldn't be C-section...

  13. You'll definitely have the best scar for show and tell.

  14. Wow. Isn't that sweet. B and NoCar going all back and forth about who has the longest rider streak. Alas, neither one of you can claim you haven't missed rides. AND it's about time. I think the streak to be beat is the missed rides streak held by, uh, let me see if I can remember... there once was a rider named...

  17. I'm out, but totally legit this time. After a successful 90 mile ride in wintery mix conditions Saturday, on Sunday in perfect conditions I proceeded to crash hard on the motorcycle, ending the day with a trip for chest x-rays. It was one of only a handful of times (<5) that I've ended a ride with a crash.

    No broken ribs but the cartilage is tweaked. I broke my chest protector and had a windless panic moment & big scare fearing internal injuries. I'm doing fine now with supplied Hydrocodone; I can see where one could get hooked on these things.

    Have fun and keep the rubber side down.

  18. Dang I hate to hear man down reports.

    Rock, I think you should stick to the motorless cycles.

    It is notable here that the 90 mile 'ride' on Saturday was also on a motorized cycle.

  19. May I request a Valero pick up?
