    I came to stlar in spring 2013 as a freshman in college. I had my 1995 EX500 Ninja. I learned so much about friendship, riding, and bike maintenance from all of you. I bought a speed triple that was out of my league shortly after joining. Thanks to the members of this group, I was able to maintain and safely ride it. If I'm being honest, I did not like or enjoy my time at school. I had some dark feeling times. I didn't like most of my peers, and I didn't care for STL city. I never felt like I fit in or shared interest. This (STLAR) was my home. You were my second family. I've had numerous people in this group go above and beyond for me. Today I received news I passed my North American Pharmacy Licensure Exam (NAPLEX). It's the board exam for pharmacists. Several times I wondered how I would ever make it this far. You guys and gals rooted for me and believed in me from the start. There were several times I doubted myself. There were nights I couldn't sleep, and wondered how/if I was even going to make it through school. STLAR was my getaway. Talking on the site, making rides on the weekend, it was my escape. I was pissed off my Triumph left me stranded on the way to Bixby but I got a tow home, and a garage to store my bike in thanks to this group. I even got help fixing it up. I was pissed off we got tickets in Hardin IL, but I laugh about it now. There are random meaningless parts from several rides that I remember vividly. Thank you to every single one of you that interacted with me, and made these memories with me. There are no groups that can replace you. I still plan to return once in a while, and make some non-member rides. Really, I wanted to extend my gratitude for STLAR's hospitality. I learned so much about my riding, my bikes, the meaning of friend's, and myself. Thank you.

    I've been out of town the past 2 weeks for work and vacation and purposely put down my phone for the most part while on vacation last week. Looks like there was never a post for the monthly meeting... (*cough* @ZRX4ME, @stiffneck, @GSXR55 *cough* ). Judging by the lack of activity or posts from anyone pining for the meeting this month, I'm questioning if we should cancel it this month. I should be able to make it tomorrow but I don't want to be sitting there by myself so if enough folks are up for it, we can have one.

    The brakes are great! Flushed it out again to be sure there was no debris in there. On Saturday morning last time out, I had air in my brakes and the brake bleeder kit I had was aerating it instead of really bleeding it. Lost a ton of time and couldn't pass tech for the first session. Gene skipped out on his first session too just to help get me on track. So @cyclesailor was my weekend MVP!

    We had a good time. JJ and Dom and Bud along with their families made it, along with several other non-motorcycle friends. I know it was short notice so we'll try to plan ahead next time
