*Before anyone else tells the story.... ready to start the first day's ride, running a bit late already, Ken shows up and checking into his room. I greet him and tell him not to worry....we won't leave without him. Then I turn around, walk out the door and pretty much start the ride....without him.

Plenty to think about in the meantime, but at our main stop an hour or more into the ride, someone says, "Hey, what happened to Ken?" Suddenly I remembered.

Guessing I will never live that down.
I had already forgotten what happened with Ken. Thanks for refreshing my memory.
Glad I'm not the only one with memory problems.

Thanks for putting together a great couple days of rides, and letting me join the group for good ol' scooter shenanigans!

We had great weather, and a great group of people accepting of a newbie like me. I was glad to get my first group ride out of the way in familiar territory for me, and you all made it easy for this rookie to follow along. I tried not to screw up too much!

Hey, great to have you. You seemed a good fit, and no problems with your riding-you're great in a group. Sorry if I was grilling you too much pre-ride, but seems nice to make sure you know what you're getting into before rather than after. Sadly it seems that the people who really need to get their stuff together are hard to reach, and a lot of words are wasted on people that will catch on quickly regardless.

If it wasn't clear you were on home turf, that downtown stroll in Baraboo brought it home!

No worries about the pre-ride check in...I wasn't sure what I was in for, but I appreciate the concern. I feel I'm a pretty quick learner

Sitting here in school today getting ready for the kids next week, I'm prepping myself for the kids wondering about me joining some crazy scooter gang. I'll just beep my horn at them and tell them get outta my way!
