    Cool Nor Cal Jersey

    I don't know how many of you visit the NorCal forum. I didn't, and I missed out on the way cool NorCal BF jersey deal. You can see at
    "Official" 2007 NorCal Bikeforums Jersey order

    BUT, there is going to be a reorder. Need a min of 10 and in a day we're up to 4.
    If you want on, go to the thread at

    "Official" 2007 NorCal Bikeforums Jersey REORDER

    NOTE: I'm not the organizer, I'm just passing the info along because I missed out the first time around.

    There was a nice jersey deal running in the Vintage forum a few months ago. Very classy jerseys.

    Could a 50+ jersey deal be around the corner?

    Don't like it. Makes you look like Pittsburg Steelers fans. Not too visable in the good old S.F. fog, either. I'll pass.

    Well I guess you won't be included in the "cool" Norcal group eh mister TW
    It was 105 at 6pm here in Vacaville, just a little way North and East of SF. I could use a little of that fog around here. It was 107 at my house yesterday. It is supposed to cool of to just a little over 100 this weekend.

    If I saw a jersey with NORCAL written on it, my first impression would be that it was a corporate logo. It sounds like an oil company or utility or insurance company.

    Nice design and naturally anything honoring the Cutters is sacred, but I agree.......having gotten back in from a 106 degree ride today (very slow out there).....dark colors (and less hi-viz) don't seem practical.

    Still think the best over 100 "jersey" is a torn up tee shirt cut up short and like a tank top....the cotton and openings let in air, and the dry heat bakes out the moisture. (The residue of salt can be tasty to lick....hot climate roadies have to be practical and recycle their secretions when advisable.)

    I'd love to wear any BF-oriented jersey. But all the jerseys tend to run in men's sizes. Too large for me. That is, I would be like a kite ready for launching wearing even a small men's jersey, at 5'10" and 125lbs. Call me when you have womens' sizes. <hopeful Vega look>

    I've even thought of having some jerseys made up saying "TEAM FOO" for those few of us who ride TT in Charlotte. Complete with "I pity the Foo," and "Foo on you," as quotes on back or sides.... Some of you here hate Foo, for whatever reasons, but those folks in Foo really helped me through a very hard time, and with no greater experience in life than have most of you 50+ folks. Jes' sayin', as "they" say.

    Yes, but since the restraining order I've required to cover my middle/ Something to do with frightening the children and horses or other made up nonsense. So I'm going with the Nor Cal thing.

    Speaking of the Steelers...Franco Harris went to my high school, a couple years ahead of me. Our town had a big parade for him, but I forget if it was because he made the team, or they won the SuperBowl.

    What was the issue, anyway?

    What curmudgeons? What post? See, DG, you and I always get left out of the loop on the good stuff. Dauphin knows about it, but, as usual, we don't.
