    Independence Day ... the Rdie.

    So, does anyone remember when people used to post rides here? I keep checking but there are rarely any posted. Boo!

    Anywho, I was thinking about an Independence Pass on Independence Day ride but after doing some less-than-stellar maintenance on the SV earlier I'm not sure I can make that round trip. But ... if there's enough interest, I might be willing to give it a try.

    Just did that ride today, very fun but also painful, been a while since I've done anything that far haha. I'm a hard maybe on that ride again for Tuesday.

    Bueller was the proponent of this ride for many years. Haven't seen much from him lately.

    Do not put off living the life you dream of. Next year may never come. If we are always waiting for something to change...
    Retirement, the kids to leave home, the weather or the economy, that's not living. That's waiting!
    Waiting will only leaves us with unrealized dreams and empty wishes.

    I don't know what I'm going to do tomorrow then. The goal was to put some miles on, but I don't really want to do that ride by myself. Not that I can't, but if I get stranded where there's no cell phone service ...

    Maybe next weekend, then.

    I do remember those days! The firecracker 500 was always a ton a fun. I have met some great friends on this forum. Most of which are not really riding anymore. I'm a diehard canyon guy always looking for some good riders to meet up with. I can't make Indy tomorrow but will be riding all day up north. Hit me up if you want to try and put together a ride next weekend.

    Good point ... it's hard to put complete trust on your ride. Anything can happen.
