After considerable thinking, Iíve decided to permanently end posting in the So Cal Region. Iím someone who has consistently received both positive and negative attention on a regular basis, and due to the disruption from the negative attention, my presence not being felt on here is the only solution that brings me peace of mind. Iíll be logging onto Bikeforums.net to read the wonderful information that can be found on this website. There are many intelligent, nice members who provide a myriad of insightful knowledge, advice and humor from all over the world who log on here regularly. I will continue to read (but not post in) the many forums on Bikeforums.net. I will also still be checking PMs and if anyone wishes to contact me, Iíll respond via PM only. This will be my last post on this website. To all the riders and friends Iíve met in the past two years, you know where to find me, and I look forward to future rides and experiences with each and every one of you. To all the new riders who may read this, good luck and maybe we'll meet on a ride someday.
About the 2008 So Cal Jersey - Iím no longer going to take the reins on ordering this jersey. Sorry, but my heart is not in it anymore. Iíve PMd the designers so that they are aware. If anyone on here wishes to go forward with handling the ordering of a 2008 jersey, please post something in this forum so that the designers may contact you. But at this time, the design contest is over and no winner was chosen.
And now Ė a note to Caligurl:
I hope you are lurking, as I wanted to send you a heart felt public message. Because of you and your efforts (going to Joe and Shadiyah) in championing for regional forums, all of us met and many wonderful experiences and memories have been had. I'll never forget Joshua Tree! There are many friendships made because of what you did. I donít think you realize the impact you've had, but trust me, sweetie, I respect and greatly appreciate how you helped create a way for many local riders to make lasting contacts. So many folks from all over Southern and Northern CAL, as well as those from other states, have met and ridden with each other and become friends. I'll speak for myself in saying that you brought me a wonderful, eclectic group of folks in my area whom I might not have met otherwise. Thank you.
I hope our paths cross again in the future. You and SirLance are the nicest couple.
To everyone else who may read this, safe riding and happy trails!
