    50 rides this year before I'm 50 years old

    I'm turning 50 on November 3rd. My jetski widow wife wanted to know what I want to do for my birthday. She was thinking party time. My twisted mind began pondering this.

    Since I'm up to 41 times riding this year as of Sunday I was thinking how about during the day doing freighter wakes in Kalama as my 50th ride of the year on 11/3. Needless to say she wasn't too hot on the idea but it's my birthday and she wants me to be happy.

    I figured out that if I ride twice a week I should be able to make it. I've been going out Friday afternoons with a buddy that has Friday afternoons off. That plus a weekend day would work perfectly to get me up to 50 rides. Then I remembered I'm going to the world finals October 12-14. Oops.

    I will have to double up some weekends, throw in extra weekdays or do a quick PWC rental at the WF.

    So what I would like from the crowd here is to get some of that riding in. I might even be up to going to Black lake. It's just under two hours from my house which is a lot less than Grayland was last weekend.

    So gentlemen would you like to help me make this milestone? I'm sure Chevron would like me to make it.

    With the limited daylight we have left I can't get away in time to hit the river M-TH but with notice I can ride Fri, Sat, Sun.





    A stand up or two...maybe three...

    Glad to see you can appreciate my idea. I thought it was a bit out there but what the heck. Don't have a lot of weeks left so get wrenching!

    I was part of the 50 before 18 club but it had nothing to do with PWC lol.
    Congrats on the goal, I have been out less this year than any other in the last 25. Heck 3 years ago I camped 40 nights in 1 summer.

    I only count days of riding. When I was out on the houseboat for a week there was multiple rides per day that I counted as a day of riding.

    Other things you can do more than once a day especially when you are 18. This is a family site so we should stop before going any further.

    I've been averaging about 3 to 4 gallons a ride. That 7 gallon day was like 24 miles at fairly high speed with dirty plugs. Only used 2 gals on Sunday but I was working on the stand up for the last 45 mins.

    I assume you say Wednesday because of your schedule not the weather. We would get wet from the top side:
    Rain showers in the morning then thundershowers in the afternoon. High 57F. Winds SW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 70%. Rainfall near a half an inch.

    We don't have to be out for hours and hours. I have Wednesday open at this point and can avoid scheduling work if you want to go. Today I have to go kick some stuff and make some money.
