    I am going to grab one of those today. That was the only thing I felt I needed when I was out riding today.

    That sounds great. Note that there is a sunoco right near there on Boylston street for all you guys to gas up. I'm down to try out your route. You can be the lead guy.

    and +1000000 on the safe/sane riding. Squids can stay home. Tomorrow is for riders who just want to get some seat time at the end of the season, and hit some turns at a moderate pace.

    +1 on the tires. A good way to get your tires hot is to do some sweet burnouts.... jk

    I can make any of those times. Up to you guys. The earlier the better for akira and a couple others since they have to skip out early.







    To let you all know, I did some riding today. I wore long underwear, and my full kit head to toe. The only thing that got cold was the tips of my fingers (probably unavoidable) and my neck and a little bit of my face. I'm going to pick up one of those balaclavas at REI today and everything should be ship shape.

    Updated potential plan: Meet @ Jillian's @ 0930.
    I bought mine at Parkway cycles. I'm sure any shop that sells gear will have one. Or, just try a store that sells sporting equipment/clotheing. Make sure you get a wind proof ninja mask.

    Hey all

    About coming from NH... maybe an alternative is to
    meet us all at Motomkt toward noon. I need to bail at that point
    but Im sure others will still go on. After all that's when the temp
    will be getting more decent.

    General plan is to show you folks some funky curvy small
    stuff that I know between Fenway, Jamaica Plain, Newton,
    Weston, Sherborn... then maybe a bit of slab to Rt 117 to
    126 to Moto Mkt.

    Dress warm and be hydrated.
    later gators.

    Jillians is pretty easy to get to. Off 93 south take storrow drive to kenmore square. After the off ramp, go through three lights (spaced closely together), up the ramp and stay right. You'll see a gas station, then take a right. You'll be right near fenway then. You'll see Jillians. Call me 508-868-0404 or Akira if we get lost. Are you def coming? Should we wait for you?

    See you tomorrow morning, man. What's the final count? I'd like to know when we have everyone so we don't have to sit around and wait.



    I go a nice balaclava tonight and rode from wayland back into boston, 15-20 miles on mass pike at 80mph. It was 35 degrees. I wasn't even close to cold. The only thing on me that wasn't warm was the end of my fingers. I should look into getting some winter-specific riding gloves... I was just wearing my a* gp pros...

    If any of you guys are going to be late, call me or akira at 930 and let us know to keep waiting. Otherwise, we'll probably roll out around 945ish I imagine.

    Sounds good man. Looking forward to meeting you all. Although I might recognize one or two from a TTD this year or something.

    p.s. wtf is this motomart place? a bike shop? it sounds like it's sort of close to where I grew up / where my folks live.

    I was out today, once at 11am, and once at 8pm. Both were fine. You're just a Sally.

    about my part of the ride.. its really tight stuff so
    mostly its below 50 mph.
    without the highway wind chill 35-40 degrees is nothing.

    Yeah I was only out for about 4 hours and I suck, sorry

    I hope you guys get a good ride tomorrow because the best I have been in 2 weeks is the morning commute at 20-30 degrees for about 1/2 hour. Be careful though the frosty roads make for funny riding

    I'd be up for it, if...

    1) I wasn't still IN San Francisco

    2) The bike wasn't put up for the winter

    or

    3) It wasn't still running like complete shit. (I never got over to Mark's to solve the bogging mystery. Oh well, maybe in the spring)

    Well, so much for 80% at home for the new job. I've been home 6 days since Oct 1, which is 15% at home. The guy who recruited me basically lied about the amount of travel. The only thing that keeps me out here is what they pay me, otherwise, I'd be home right now.

    I miss riding with the "regulars". And even with those of you who are irregular. I haven't checked in much lately and I'm cracking up to see that my photo of Dennis has grown to be what it is today.

    Keep up the good work guys.

    Long underwear, full gear, balaclava (ski mask) = good as a 75 degree day.

    It's nice and sunny out, too.
