yeh i lost track of some friends i used to ride with back in 06, some times people just stop enjoying riding street bikes, doesnt mean they
stop altogether... its funny actually, cause a couple of friends thats all they do now, dirtbiking... now i'm the one thats bringing down the party! hahhaha...

Got a good wedding story for you.


A good buddy bought a ring and was going to propose last July . Another buddy proposed to his Girl unbeknownst about the other buddy. No harm no foul original buddy waited until recently to propose. So his girl now fiancÚ calls her sister to let her know . Sisters douchenozzle boyfriend goes out and buys a ring that is probably fake and proposes the same day. The sister is OK with this and schedules wedding close to original sisters date. My buddy is furious and is going to kick the sheot out of dude when he sees him.

Yes, happened to me too. We had a great group of 5-- now I'm the only one with a bike. Sad...

Very much so. Same here with a group of 5 and it was a good group. Everyone knew how the other would react and we all kept a good pace. Sucks all that time invested in the riding and working on stuff together. Gonna suck to start all over.

It's always the case. Up until I was 30 I am always riding with 4 - 5 mates having a good time. Next thing I know is that I am riding all by myself. I am 37 now and I don't mind riding by myself. I set my pace and take my breaks and ride at my leisure. I don't blame my friends, their priorities have changed and they have places to go and people to please things to achieve in life. I can understand that and let them be. Once in a while (once in every 3-6 months) I get a phone call and we get together for an easy chilled out ride. That's all about it.

I had a buddy who would tell us he had to travel for work on Monday so Saturday he "had to pack". Sad to watch.
True Ish... It happens all the time...


I'm in the same situation... All my friends had their man cards pulled, but I somehow managed to get them out this weekend for a ride to Immakolee for a bite to eat, then a nice run down Snake Road... I had to talk to them all in a group in front of their wives at a get together...
