I'm planning on making it. Any idea when or if a TBA ride will take place during SFO?


Will,
I rode behind you at Hooterville last fall. You will have NO problem obtaining the TBA cert. You will have a blast if Scott and Mark put one on! :clapping:


Thanks Mark. I think I'll be okay as long as I don't start heading down any gravel roads!

I've always wanted to try the TBA thing but never could swing it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.



what you got against gravel roads?

nothing as long as I'm not on two wheels. Only times I've ever been down had gravel involved.

Big difference between all gravel and unexpected gravel scattered about on a tight paved blind curve. But I don't really know what circumstance you were referring to. I like a little gravel back road every now and then reminds me of my mostly off road riding background but I don't care for gravel/sand on my pavement riding. That might be why I have a blue/silver S10 on order as a new stablemate for my FJR.

I don't think I want gravel on any road I ride if I can help it. Just a personal preference. Others may like the slipping and sliding of the gravel on paved or dirt. Just not something I think is safe on the FJR.

Yeah, they would. And you gotta be really suspicious when one of 'em says "Follow me, I know a short cut!"
