RAIN - LOTS OF IT . . . can someone check the trails before Sunday? If they are muddy I am not riding, not that I can't ride in it, it destroys the trails, gives riders a bad rep, and the biggest reason - I do not want to replace my drive train on the bike again.
I raced in Tyler many a year ago and it was a mudfest, I ended up replacing the crank gears, chain, derailleurs front and back and the rear cogset all because of mud - sandy mud at that. We raced on a motocross track so it was accustomed to mud and riding.

I will check them out but we should still meet there even if we don't ride.

ANYONE CONFIRMED?

Tomorrow is the day . . . going to be a B-U-Tiful day. Well I will check back later. And I am going to bring my bike anyway - even the paved paths are worth getting on.

I will be there. Didnt make it out to check the trails today as planned, but i agree about bringing the bikes anyway. Paved trails will do if they are good for riding. See youguys out there.

AWESOME - I got the bike ready and will head that way about 1200 to be there around 1pm.

Wife is not coming along, has an ear infection - not from pepper LOL.

I am going to get something easy to make like dawgs and bring buns and some chips. Plus my drink choices. I will have the cooler and some ice too if anyone needs it.

What a great day - I had a blast, this was the first meet we had where we did more than stand around our trucks and then grab a bite at a restaurant.

Other than me having a flat tire on the bike and not being prepared it was awesome. We need to do more meets like this one.

RED - I checked my calendar and I have to travel on Sunday the 29th. MAYBE, just maybe we could move it to Saturday the 28th and have a Tech Meet?

Mull it over and let me know. If not I understand and we can make May the Tech Meet.

It was a great day. Only 4 of us out there with Rangers but had good company out there. It was a great ride and i didn't mind slowing down for the walking Hazmat with a flat.

Was a lot of fun out there!! This was probably the best meet we have had in terms of fun. Too bad it was just the four of us Rangers though. I have no issues with the next meet being on a Saturday. Anyone have issues with the next one being Saturday April 28th?

May also have a Tech Topic - Exhaust system and welding.

We sold the house in Lake Dallas, so now I may be able to get a better welder - will see.

Ok - we are planning for the 1st ever Tech Meet in DFW - more than just hanging out and BSing about trucks, chicks, bikes or whatever.

I will submit the address via PM to those that commit to attending, not just maybes or mights. This will be pot luck style where you bring along something made or store bought for snack or food. I have a large charcoal and gas grills so we can cook out.

So far we have a few things to do with Yam's Ranger and we will have some time to demonstrate and practice some welding. If you have any scrap steel please bring it along.

Date will be April 28th a Saturday in Rhome, Texas.

Dang, I really want to make this one. But we just bought plane tickets to go visit some friends in Phoenix that weekend.
