Oh nooooo... that means you went out to meet and ride with us today. So sorry Mike!! We do not ride on Mother's Day due to so many women wanting to spend it with their families..

Will we see you next week? :pray:

Just wanted to toss in here, the ride was a ton of fun - and a quick thank you to everyone who gave me a hand after I went down. I don't remember all the names, but everyone was extremely helpful. I can't thank you guys enough. Look forward to riding with you again in the future when I'm back on two.

Glad that you're OK, albeit a little banged up. Hope to see you on a ride again, as soon as the bike is fixed!
