    It seems hard to get guys together for a one day ride. I have seen several attempts, but no-go! If anyone is interested in getting something going, please reply.

    I am always interested in a ride. I am going to Jay rally in PA in 8/7, i would love to make the rally in Boston on 8/8 but that would be insane (i am torn). Its only a 6 hours drive.

    BTW my chopper is almost complete, i just to solve some chain and dérailleur issues first

    Ok, now we need to recruit a few more. If you know of any others riders please contact them, as they may not see this posting. Also inquire about any good routes for thr ride. I also hope to make the 8/8 show. Pa is out just to far for the wife.

    Would like to see some Pics of your chopper progress. I will PM my e-mail address if it makes it easier. I live in N. Weymouth

    I hear you James. It's tought to get people together for a ride. I've tried and had very few people show any interest.
    The bike show is still going on 8/8 and I still plan on attending unless weather or something unforseen gets in the way.
    If you and HseLomein are still interested, let me know and we'll plan a three man ride from my place in Waltham Ma. I know a pub we can hit for your squirrel on the way also. lol

    Other than 8/8 I am available most weekends to take a ride. All I need is a little advance notice and I'm good to go. The weather won't stay nice for much longer so we should act fast.

    Well please stay in the loop. I will try to forward any local ride info to you.
    If it happens before you mend perhaps you could meetup with us for coffee.

    James I'll be around this Saturday 7/24 around 11:00am if you want to take a ride. My bike won't fit in my car so we would have to meet somewhere I can ride to. Post if you're interested and we'll go from there.

    8/8

    Shawnshank,
    Are you intending on riding your MB from Whaltham to the show? How far is that? Will they have a secure parking area for bikes?

    Pa rally

    Shawnshank,
    I know that HseLoMien is going to the Pa rally 8/7. Looks like I will also. I intend to be back for the show in Boston 8/8 at the Lars.
    I will be taking my car and trailer to Pa. Just thought that I'd check and see if you wanted to come along (Pa Rally).

    Jim
