What's both of your experience through 193? I've only been riding for a month and not sure if that may be slightly above my skill level at the moment. let me know; sounds like a blast though.

You are right - 193 would be a bit daunting for you. If you want to hook up, I can think of something a bit tamer. I have 47 years in the saddle. However, I always watch for fellow riders and - - if needed try coach to help them learn. In group riding, the pack needs to ride to the ability of the slowest rider, not the fastest.

Okay....If any want to meet up about 10:00 am, let me know. I'll go out here and put my number, and all interested should be able to figure the area code from my location.....

If contacted, I give meeting point, and if "newbies", will modify ride to be more "relaxed"

I got this pesky coolant leak I need addressed by the dealer on Tuesday so I may have to opt out till the next one. Sucks for only having 225 miles now. I really wanted to break the motor in so I could slap my R-77 on.

Yeah - that is kinda a pain.... but when something so complex is mass produced, there are always a few small issues. Get in touch when ready and we will put a few mikes down.

Eric - That's really cool of you - thanks. I'm about your age as well but not as much experience - mostly motocross back in the day. I will reach out soon.

Ok, hope you guys are having fun and having a safe ride this nice Sunday. Took a 50 mile ride and it seems to be ok, no more leak. Still getting a new cap put on tomorrow and I should be good for the next ride.

Well - Saturday did first oil and filter change, then put down about 140 miles on Sunday. Good ride - pretty laid back. Down 160 along the river, 12 over to Lockeford and 88 to Jackson, lunch, and then home. I ride often - especially on Sundays - but get in touch so we can get some rides in as a "R-3" group. It would be awesome to see all the R3 riders in the area form a group and set up some group rides.....
