Yes, we did! I spoke to Eric, but my buddy Jason had already started dealing with another sales associate there - I can't remember her name - so she wound up taking care of Will. He bought a jacket and seems to really like it.
Friday may be the best day. I'm not sure what we (the group I'm riding up with) have planned for that day, riding-wise, but there is a reception for us that evening starting at 6pm.
As for Saturday, there is a firefighter ride that morning that is broken up into to two sections. I only plan to to the second section, since I would like to attend the breakfast that they will hold for us that morning. The actual ceremony starts at 1:00 that afternoon, after the motorcycle and apparatus procession arrives at the memorial site.
The only definite thing on my list, is to ride up to Pikes Peak. We haven't planned when we are going to do that yet - I'm figuring we'll talk about it on the way up.
I'll be up in the Springs next week with a few amigos. We're riding up from the Houston area for the IAFF's annual Firefighter Memorial ceremony. Maybe I'll get a chance to meet you and some of the other locals while we're there. Not sure if the FZ1 will be ready in time for me to ride it up, but the dealership says it will be, so we'll see.
Thanks Brenda. It's been awhile since I've written anything. I guess it was time. Hopefully I can get back to ride reports soon. I did actually try a few years ago with sending a story in to Cycle Canda, but without success. I,m not sure what might interest them.
They were busy spamming away when I nuked them. They had 2 posts up and were working on #3. Most spammers are stupid and don't even make spotting them difficult. I doubt they actually are were they say they are, but I don't bother checking IP's I just ban the IP's
