Great ride..... aboslutely!!!!

Great people..... ABOSLUTELY!!!

I just want to say thanks to you guys for hosting this little event. I have to say, it's rare for me to feel so comfortable around people I have just met.... even though we technically have met "digitally", but from the beginning I could tell it was going to be a great day. As I said before, it is nice to meet people who are a little more planted in the motorcycle scene, instead of sitting in the parking lots listening to the curb monkeys claim that Nickey Haden has nothin on them. Todd and I stopped at a bar on the way back to shoot it a little. We hope to hook up again soon to talk more about pipes, tires and suspension.... but what the hell else is there. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

What a great day. I'm so glad you guys put this thing together, and I hope we meet up again sometime soon...... bikes or not. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D">

BTW....... I was right...... I burned the piss out of my neck. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/sick.gif ALT=":x"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

Unbelievable day. Like TRC51 said, it is unusual for me to feel so comfortable so quickly around people I have just met. My usual MO is to hang back and check things out before jumping into the social setting, but everbody there today is just like they are on the board. Mono is a squirrelly in person as he is on the board. I might even say he is "wicked" nutty. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> TRC51 and I have talked briefly prior to the trip, but while we were waiting for everybody to show up at the meeting place, we sat around and talked like we had known each other a lot longer than a few days. TanuiNYC and EPSTEIN are "what you see is what you get" type people. Can't ask for anymore than that. It was also very nice to meet Mrs. EPSTEIN and TanuiNYC's better half. Mrs. EPSTEIN was quite the gamer on her FZR especially considering the beasts that were all around her!

As for the riding, it was unbelievable! The best compliment that I can give to this particular group is that I felt like I got a little bit better on the 12R today, but never did I feel like I had to pull some stunt to impress everybody and show that I was a part of the group. To me, there is nothing better than riding hard all day, getting better riding one's bike, and feeling safe, all at the same time. Thanks to everyone for that.

As a PS to those that live in the NE, watch out when TRC51 and Mono get together. Those guys are insane! Just when I thought they were going to lay off, here comes a long straight and there go the front tires skyward for an extended trip off the pavement!

I had a great time and I definitely want to get together again before the weather starts to change.

TS

PS props to TRC51 for taking the pole position all day. I know you will sleep well tonight! <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

First thing.....I can't thank everyone enough for a great day. My wife(Ann) was getting sick of me talking about the ride, the people etc....I think I ended with I sure wished we had all lived close by. I'm sure we wll be doing this again and maybe even hooking up with some of the other board members, but times like these should happen weekly.
second thing....I need to clarify Trc51 and I riding style. He was just trying to out run the sun so it would stay off his back. I simply was just trying to shadow the sun burnt neck.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> Besides, I didn't want to get lost.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">
thirdly....WHAT WHEELIES????? We were just checking out the landing gear per instructions of the Kawasaki owners manual.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">
One final note....Although I knew from talking to board members just how seasoned most of the members ride, I can honestly say that I felt I was with a safe group of riders that I could trust. At any time would I feel honored to ride with them. Anyone can get on a bike and claim they know how to ride but today my belief about ZX12R owners was proven. You have to respect the bike, the road and the people around. Definately mature riders....you all should be proud. Mrs Epstein...you can bet your Arse that your included. You did a great job hanging with these nutty 12 riders. I think that FZR has been doctored up by Rich(boogerboy)..NOS maybe??<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">
Iv'e got some GREAT ideas on future get together's, so lets all do this again soon.

Oooooooyyyyyyy. I am freakin whipped. Your right Native.... I passed out when I finally went to bed last night. Too bad I didn't get enough sleep because I kept having this nightmare that mono's PMB was sucking me into his intake. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> Your killing me Mono. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D"> No threat of being lost when your not just shadowing my back.... you were my shadow! I think my mirrors are now a light shade of PMB. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> That was great!

For a while there, It was starting to turn into a "landing gear test" contest. Mono started it though.... it wasn't my fault. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> Got a little windy and choppy at one point, but leave it to mono to be the bad influence.

As already said, everyone in attendance were very capable riders. Todd was always close behind Mono and Native was removing what was left of his strips. Both Native and Todd have very similar riding styles to mine (when I'm not going ballistic speeds that is), so I hope to ride with both of them again soon. Epstein could hang with the big dogs when he wanted to, but mostly he was hangin back with Mrs Epstein... when he wasn't being passed by her. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> I'm glad there were a few bikes between us, or she might have given Mono and I a run. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

TainuiNYC and his "better half" <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> were right in the mix. I was amazed at how well they ride together. We spent very little time waiting up for anyone really. That was the best part about it. Everyone went at their own pace, and I think we all had a great time. Now all I have to do is sort out my freakin Chatterbox and everything will be great. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/eyes.gif ALT=":rolleyes"> (Starting to think its my headphones Epstein...bad wire???).

I am pretty tired though. My arms are fatigued, my brain is mush, and my neck could heat a small building in Siberia in the dead of winter. Worth every bit though.

CR,

I just realized last night that you were from NYC when you posted about riding around the streets down there. I wish I would have seen that sooner. I mentioned to Epstein that I will likely be down your way for the motorcycle show in February. Maybe we could hook up then, if not sooner if time permits. I have four more weddings to go to in the next month and a half, and none of them are my own. I don't even want to think about the $ I will be spending on gifts and travel costs...especially for the one in Kentucky! <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/eek.gif ALT=":eek">

Thanks to Travis, Tracy, Ron, and Tod for making our trip up to VT very exciting. We scorched a couple of VT roads and everything went off without incident. I am impressed by the group as they are talented riders.

I look forward to the next trip as well and we (Brian and myself) hope to be able to make several more of these type gatherings -- including the next Deal's Gap trip and Black Hills next year.

Well I went and said it... and everyone can see -- We are shooting for Black Hills next year!!! <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

mrwzx12r -- just let us know and we might be able to put a weekend together to come to NC and shread some asphault. Epstein will be out of weekend rotation for a bit, but we might be able to put something together and trailer the bikes down.

I had such a good weekend that I would definietly consider a few road trips here and there.

Brian -- any objections? There are no big mountains to trailer up in NC. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

Vozizm -- where in NYC are you from? and where in NC are you living? I went to ECU in Greenville and am living in Manhattan now -- but I know the food sucks down there, I hate it for you.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

I told MarkCBXX it is his turn to set one of these things up....

I did it the first time, it was like trying to get all the foreign leaders together for a damn summit <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

I'm all for it, but hopefully the other Mark will set it up <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

I will make it, as long as it is on the weekend <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">
