The forecast has improved, looks like no rain on our ride route until after 10pm.

The meeting at Irving in Farmington, NH is at 9:30 if anyone else is undecided.

The forecast looks like 30% chance of rain after 3 or 4pm from Conway all the way south to Waltham, we should be able to avoid that entirely.

Sorry to hear it Peter, have a good day wherever you are.

9am in Farmington it is then. I've got some bike prep to do too, hopefully I'll find the time.

If anyone else wants to join us just hit me with a PM and I'll send my cell number.
JB, PM sent

I was thinking of 9am at the Irving station in Farmington.

Good luck with your wiring, I have a good amount of scrap harnesses you can pick from if you need a connector here or there.

I agree, we had high 40's last night here too. I was able to find some time weeks ago on warm days to get my CM400 running, but not inspected yet, and I have some clean-up still to do. Other projects and work have been stealing away my time.

It's certainly not you Ben!

I finally had a chance to view the video on my laptop (kept hanging up on my phone as in the comments)
Because I have very little dirt or woods riding experience, I tend to be wary of any obstacles I encounter while on two wheels.
On the street I've come up against large plastic bags, cardboard boxes, the odd flying hubcap and some deep flooded areas to cross.
Riding in groups I tend to hang back and choose my own line, I'd rather chase than follow.
I'm guessing that if these riders left a second or two more between them that this guy may have had more milliseconds to adjust his approach. And while the rider behind our friend was able to stop in time, having more space would have afforded him a more controlled stop as well.
One good lesson is not to overconfidently ride in unfamiliar territory, trail maintenance doesn't exist everywhere and there will be obstacles like these.  I'm really glad he avoided the larger pointier piece of the trunk just a little bit further to his right, that would have been an entirely different headline...but I'm sure his buddy would have gotten it all on video.

Thank you, that's very tempting! But alas I'm not in need at the moment.

Comment section:
"... consider the reaction times these guys have, that he *THOUGHT*... "lost the front, I got it, I got it, I got it, I got it,.. Nah, I ain't got it .." and DECIDES to 'jump ship' to get away from the bike as it's going down.... All of that thinking and the decision took place in the blink of an eye while taking a corner at 160+ MPH"

Which 'off' are you referring to? Was it Conor Cummins at 20:45 where he simply steps off as the bike goes down?
Then as he says he picked himself off and dusted himself off... wow.

Watching this makes me want better street gear, even at the fairly low speeds I ride.

Congrats Ben, that's a great tool to have around. I picked up a little 1hp electric years ago for simple yard waste, it wasn's good for much more than 1" hardwood but served the purpose then. Unfortunately it opened my eyes to the ease of use and productivity a larger unit would provide.
A good score at any price.
Cheers!

False Alarm, sorry.
I'm all set to ride the morning of Saturday 13 May.
We just need to set a time and location.

I'm on call that weekend, my coworker was going to cover for me but he's just put in for a 5-day weekend for home improvement projects. Apparently the city inspector will be out at the end of May and he's facing about 4 grand in citations if he doesn't complete it all....

I'll talk to him, maybe he'll come around.
I'd really like to ride.

Sorry Gents, it looks like I won't be available that weekend after all.
