    Yep, I've got a 91 VFR. It's waiting for me to put new fork seals and a few other little things. I've also got an 87 Hurricane 600.

    I'm in Los Lunas.

    I'm in ABQ and just bought a 5th gen that needs some TLC. I've got the essential parts on order and hope to have it one the road in a week or two.

    In Santa Fe!

    I picked up my 06 from a great seller in ABQ about 10 days ago. I met some guys here in Santa Fe this week (seems to be a good group) and they meet for rides every Sunday. I think most went to the Sandia Track day this weekend?

    Seems they like to meet outside the Starbucks at the DeVargas mall Sundays around 10am.

    Haven't been able to schedule anything lately as I've been traveling out of state. If I don't go to Denver I will likely join the Santa Fe group for the usual Sunday trip to Cedar Crest/Sadia Crest.

    I should know later tonight and will post up here. We'll see how the weather hold up as it looked like rain was predicted for this weekend?

    I'm out for Sunday and this mornings forecast looks like heavy rain through the weekend. Too bad - cuz the temps are perfect.

    Isn't all this rain and moisture crazy? I know it's monsoon season and the occoasional afternoon showers are normal, but two and three straight days of rain is out of the ordinary and unfortunate.

    What days are you free to ride?

    I am mainly available Saturday and Sunday, but would be up for a evening ride any day of the week as I get out of work around 4:45...
