I think I need a new set of riding buddies...

So I call my buddy up last night and ask him to take a ride to the Dragon's Tail this weekend. Its about a 460 mile one way trip, so it is a good full 3 day ride. Great time, I have done it twice now. He hasn't been to the Dragon yet and talks about going all the time. Well me and this buddy have talked about doing the ride for awhile now and this weekend I thought was the perfect opportunity, weather is great, nothing really going on.
This guy gave me every excuse in the world why he couldn't make it this weekend. His main reasoning was that I didn't give him enough notice.
What the hell? What ever happened to just getting on the bike and just going for the sake of just going?
I think I need a new riding buddy...

That sucks... I don't mind riding by myself, but it is nice to go on an adventure with the fellas now and again. Sorry your buddy isn't onboard with what sounds like a great time.
I had never heard of the Dragon until I joined this forum, now I would jump at the chance to ride it. I'd hook up with ya for a ride, but I am on the wrong coast.

I am in the same boat is your buddy. Wifey lets me get my riding in but normally is planned in advance. Day rides are not a problem. I will b at the dragon's tail in 2 weeks.

DannyBoy,
Might see you there, it might be another week or two before I get there.

I would ride this myself, but the wife doesn't like me to take long trips by myself on the bike. The whole safety in numbers thing, I can understand her concerns and the smarter part of my brain agrees, but it still sucks that I am stuck if no one else wants to go.

This is going to be a long frustrating weekend. Hope everyone else out there has a great one.

Maybe his "WIFE" won't let him go out & paly with his friends. OR he did something BAD & the "WIFE" has him locked in his room!!!!!!!!!!

You can always take the wife with you and do it with her?? My wife would love that as long as she can stretch her legs every 125-150 miles.

Patience grasshopper - you don't know what his real issue is. The question to ask yourself is "Do I have so many friends that I can start discarding some of them?" Just saying...

The wife likes her 30 to 45 minute rides on Wednesday afternoon, but that is about it. Anything more and she is ready to jump off from boredom. I am glad to get her on at all though. Thanks for trying to help, I already tried it though and got the "are you stupid" look.

Joke, I wouldn't discard him as a friend or a riding buddy, its just frustrating at times dealing with this certain person and his excuses.
