    We're gonna make him / her scrape those pegs.

    On a side note - today waiting for my son to get off the bus a parent backed into my bike & almost tipped over - IN FRONT OF ME - he got out to tell me he did not see my bike - I asked him - you pulled in to this parking spot - you saw it then- I did not see it in my mirror, when I backed up ! It could of been a kid you hit............
    Anyone have a PVC frame idea - thing to build with a bike flag - to stop people from backing into my bike

    I will shoot to be there at 10:00 but might be a little later. No later than 10:30 though. I have Luis cell number so I will give him a shout if there is a problem. It will be a good coffee break spot for us.

    See everyone who's coming on Saturday.

    don't think i'll be making it up there this weekend, but.........

    i know time if of the essence, but if you guys come in on 2, you should consider going out by 8, down to adams then 116 to deerfield where you can then go back north to 2, south to 90 or take rt 9 just a bit south in northampton.

    116 through ashfield and conway is one of the best riding roads in MA.

    It's the Mobil gas station at bottom of the hill where Rt 2 takes a hard left at the intersection of RT 2 and 2A in Concord MA, arrive around 8:00, departure at 8:30.

    I'll be riding up from Brockton, leaving the house around 7:30 if you want to meet up for the ride north to the rendezvous.

    NOT the one at the traffic circle, it's the station closer to 128 where RT2 takes the hard left at the bottom of the hill, there's a set of traffic lights at the turn.

    Ken - thanks for keeping it going I was tending to my dog who needed to go to the vet - nothing serious, just unfortunately getting old.

    As Ken stated at the junction of 2 and 2A there is a mobil station, we'll meet there at 8 and be prepared to leave by 830.

    I like Bubba's suggestion for the return route.

    I just made reservations at the Freight Yard Pub for 10 people for 12 to 1230.

    I figure we ride out to the restaurant - we eat - and then continue with the trip to Mt Grelyock and during lunch we can discuss the second half of the ride.

    The weather looks good - cool but good, the eastern part of the ride may be damp, conflicting weather reports, so please dress appropriately.

    Really looking forward to this and meeting all of you - thanks

    Luis

    Trash bags work great, great idea, but I do not want to know anything about your thong.

    Unknown to most people flip flops are outstanding motorcycle gear:

    - they are light
    - shed water like a seal
    - and provide great traction when manuevering bikes in the parking lot

    RT 138 and 128/93 north. If you're coming north on 128/93 and take the exit ramp for 138 east, there's a Sunoco gas station and Dunkin Donuts about a 1/4 mile down on the left. Take a left on the street between the Sunoco and DD and an immediate right into the DD parking lot.

    I'll be parked there ready to roll at 7:30.
