Duck began this thread in April '05 with a simple post, "Does anyone want to ride?" Eighteen months later this thread had over 3,000 posts.
Picking up where we left off:
Duck said goodbye to Bubba in favor of a new dual sport that he's ridden the heck out of. Unfortunately, Duck hasn't yet learned that a dark visor and dark nights don't mix. He has scored electrics. Electrics are good;
Mrs. Duck doesn't have electrics and isn't about to ride in the cold;
Sling introduced Mr. RC-51, his new trick race ride;
Peter traded his DC United replica for a new, shiny black, BMW bike, cracked a ton and is now a confirmed squid;
Dot is ramping, strafing cloverleafs throughout the Northern Virginia area with Sadie, her bike;
Dave scored a GPS, is yearning for electrics and has sucked in some new riders;
Joey is still Joey, although he is now a Yammieless Joey;
Maximus cameoed at a Dave D sponsored ride;
Blue remains on hiatus;
Captain Kurt may still be in the area;
Ezra has decided to take a break, generously spreading his gear among myself, Duck and others; and
Sunny is still for sale.
On the non-rider front, my daughter Katie had an emergency appendectomy, received great thoughts and beautiful flowers from the Ducks and others, but was recently readmitted with a post-operative infection. She's out now, but has a rigorous regimen of at home i.v. antibiotics ahead of her.
Witih all that, I think we need pie.
Anyone around this weekend?
