The summer is over and the season is done for me anyway. Post up some of your best rides for the summer. A high for me this summer was on a Saturday, I had managed to trick my wife into giving me an entire day to myself to ride my motorcycle. I started by making the usaul phone calls to track down my fellow riders to no success, because they could not understand why I was calling them 8am in the morning to begin my ride. So I was on my own for the morning at least. I have the entire day I was not going to waste this, I jumped on my honda 1000rr and hitted out 8am in morning, desination breakfast.!!!!!!!! IHOP in college Park!!!! Nice ride nice breakfast, Steak and eggs yes indeed. Now that I was full by 9am the fellow riders still had not recovered from friday night parting!!!! So off to the backroads early some were okay and some just had to many early goers on them doing what I do not know. Around about 11am I hitted to the motorcycle dealership to check out some gear and kill some time to catch up with the fellows. Because I started so early after the dealership I had to go back home and sneak into the house so that my children did not hear me to grab the summer gear for the mid day and afternoon ride. Now it was time to ride the fellows had checked in and the bike was definetely ready. We hooked up at the spot and headed out. We took some back roads, crashed a cook out after all said and done I returned home about 12am to a sleeping house, however I crept into the basement and went to sleep. Just one of my better rides this summer.

that day me, viki, rob, kim, and justin played hookie and rode on a wednesday afternoon after lunch at the Herndon Pudfukkers. viki was still breaking in her bike so we kept it chill and wicked it up whenever we could. they made me lead and i took them out to Front Royal and back thru some local back roads, middleburg, carters.... rronin and grandmasterb found us on the way back and we ended up at a starbux in cashburn.

the first pre-Herndon Spot Ride, got to dice it up with Nudist for a bit, getting him out of his funk. Ghostrydr was there too mixing it up with us and I learned a few new roads and rode with a lot of new faces.

The Memorial ride for Katie.

the 400+ miler with SVBG. nuff said.

The whole month of September when I got in my car only for groceries and my birthday. The gas in my SUV tank lasted from 8/29-10/14.

posting up rides where 4 people say they show, i get there and there's 10+ and I have to split the groups. (happened 3 times)

the ride where Son got hit by the truck.

good thread... word

The first day I started riding on the street, with my little Ninja 250 and rode it around the block! It was an awesome feeling... couldn't believe it!

Probably the SM ride I went on with Cripes, Travis, and VVV.

There was another one that I remember enjoying immensly, but I can't remember which that was.

Oh, going to Middletown following Rekoniz was fun too.

I mostly ride by myself, and there's too many of those to count.

Right up the 1 hole.

Favorite Ride: Probably the one where I met up with Mike & some guy on a red Duc' in Haymarket bright n' early. We hauled a$$ to make it to a ride in Winchester at 8:30am where we hooked up with like 5 others. Group was led by a guy on a blue Kaw 1300 with chrome rims after we fuel'd up. Met another dude on a black 600RR with on board GPS and I got to see my first 2005 Gixxer 1k (probably played a role in my purchase <2 months later). Anyways, we rolled out West into West Va down some awesome roads. Don't know the route, but it was the bomb.... Lunched at Mc D's to see the one and only cop of the ride (they must have been hibernating that day). Excellent day with on incident. The Gixxer almost ate the rear of the Duc' so he locked up his front brake taking a turn. Unfortunately, I had the worst seat of the house behind him. Bless following distance, plenty of room to slow down/pull off. Waited about an hour before a truck came & we loaded er' up. Not sure the final outcome, but I believe rider had a broken collar bone and the bike had a crushed rear rim & plastic damages. Great ride other than that, wish I knew the route. ahhhh!

Most Memoriable: Gotta be the Katie memorial ride for sure. First met Chico & some other Wulfpack folks. Its just awesome to see folks come together to respect someone they knew or didn't know. It meant alot to everyone that participated, regardless of there reasons for showing up. Looking forward to the next one.

Most historic: The Rattle the Runway ride from Dulles. Well, maybe not historic but who the f'k is going to forget Sept 11. I have never seem so many motorcycles in one place before (Need some more sport bike participation next year).

Best Group Ride: Any of the Newbie rides that I went to were great (Although I didn't care for gravel while 2 up). Got to take the GF, so that was plus points. Good stuff all the way around.

However this was my first season of taking my bike to the track, and those were unbelievable.
Jefferson: My first

Main: The Crash fest

And there was also Deals Gap, wow, just wow.

There were also a few back road trips, one of my favorite had me leading with just one other friend on roads I didnt know, I just rember going in to a turn (much sharper than expected) much hotter than I wanted. And bout the point of the apex comming the other direction was a Station wagon (gray I think, BMW or Mercedes or somthin) Braking, sliding, cranking that bike over as far as I could and by the grace of god not crapping myself, came out of that turn and had no time to be mesmerized, as sharp right followed. The rest of that ride was great, good turns, not a whole lot of traffic, good day followed. My friend later retold the story to friends and gave his perspective : "Here comes the turn, in goes Brad, brake Brad, brake"

Attack Life! It's going to kill you anyway.

Two trips trough the smokies. Didn't do the Gap this year, too much traffic. ran the Skyway a couple of times and as many back roads as I could find. Before that ran down the Blue Ridge into GA and AL for a track day at Barber.

First great ride this year was with Ghostrydr in the early spring when we did over 350 miles all over western VA.

Had a lot of fun leading Busamac, Winrz and Ed to the Front Royal area....and Melting Pot.

The ride with Woody and Pokey was the easiest, most stressfree "group" ride I've led. I don't know how much fun those fellaz had following my rookie ass but I had a lot of fun that day without worrying about those dudes behind me. Lunch with the WARP crew in Middletown was a fukn riot.

And...the 36 degree ride from DC to FR for Guzz's bbq earlier this year too. I think Dragula and I were the only idiots that rode that day.
