azkaisr Posted March 4, 2007 Share Posted March 4, 2007 Well today was Howard's Birthday. Since I had already cleaned out the garage and counted all the staples in my stapler, I figured what the heck, lets spend the morning going up to the Mountains NE of Phoenix for Breakfast at the nice "easy" pace that the Rim Riders like to ride. We gathered at the local Circle K and tried to include Howard since it was his Birthday. The Birthday boy in all of his glory waiting for someone to say good morning. I did punch him several times for those that requested it, but if I missed anyone, let me know as I am riding with him again in the morning! I wish I could tell you what Al is trying to explain here. I really do With a head wind of about 20mph most of the way up to Payson for Breakfast we never really broke the 120mph mark. But it was a great spirited ride without much traffic and temps only dipping into the mid 40's even at altitude. After eating we decided that rather then climb higher into the mountains we would head back to town for some starbucks and then meet for dinner. Here you can see everyone trying to be Howards friend The ride down the hill was just as fun and we ended up in Fountain Hills for Coffee. Everyone had a grand time and the weather was glorious! Well maybe these two couldn't really fake the laughs as well as the rest of us....just kidding! I am sure Angie had a few minutes of fun... At least by dinner, Shelley was able to muster a psuedo smile. So nobody told me that we had to really get Howard a present for his birthday. I mean I thought we were all just going to get a free meal. I had to think fast! What do you get a guy like Philly? Snow tires for the RT were out. Al got him a bottle of booze so that idea was kaput. No time for a "I lead the slow riders" t-shirt so I needed to think fast! As we were leaving to get coffee after dinner, I was in a near panic. What could I get the Hoon that would make him happy? Then as we left the joint it came to me! What would any young 56 year old single man want for his birthday.....I mean I get good money to fix bigger issues then this right? So..... Happy Birthday Amigo!!! Kaisr Link to comment
