Sunday Riding With The Geezers

We met up at noon straight up, and rolled out to Ediz Hook. Geezers JayBee, Mod Kevin and I went for a little ride today, and you know what? It was really nice. From the Hook, we made a run for the west side of town on Edgewood Drive, and stopped at Dry Creek School so JayBee could lay an egg. Youth baseball tryouts were under way in the multi-field complex next to the school, so JayBee made a point of going over and perving some of the mom's hanging out on the sidelines. From here we hit the fogline and headed back toward town in search of lunch, and to talk about the club.

It really is time to get this club up and running since we have added to the roster, but it's hard to do so when nobody ever gets together. This is all beginning to change.

A while back we made some stabs at joining a bigger club, but after further conversation, a few of us decided to hang back and put our efforts into building what we had already started. With the Geezers, we can keep things low-key and roll at our own pace.

There are six members in our club now, and although we are a bit spread out, we are beginning to communicate better and are coming up with some cool ideas for future events and rides. The three of us that rode today tossed some great ideas around over lunch at the SOHO Asian Bistro. Our host Dong knows JayBee, and gave us invitations to a free dinner Tuesday night, and based on the quality of todays lunch, I might just take him up on it. We might even make SOHO our monthly meet-up place.

So far we've discussed a Spring camp-out, a "chicken run" to Forks for the best darn chicken around, and some local bopping around for the scoots that can't roll at highway speeds. It is also our intent to hit the Seattle rallies to get a feel for the culture there.

But aside from all of the planning, it was just really cool to spend time with these guys as a group, and realize that this, right now, is the beginning of the coming together of the Geezers Moto-Scooter Club. This is going to be a good time.

Have fun,

That does sound like a cool group and club but I wouldn't join any group that would have me for a member. LOL

Actually, I plan on doing a lot of camping this year but if outsiders are permitted on rides I might join you on a few.

Maybe you can keep me posted on them with a email to me?

I wrote it that way to avoid spam programs trolling looking for email addresses, you know how to fix it.

Feel free to email me pics of sexy women also. :-)

Thanks for the link. Sorry I haven't been around for a few days, but I got tied up in about a million too many projects and time is tight. I'll be in touch soon.
