He's been looking forward to this though he definitely thought the girl would chicken out when it actually came to following through. He's surprised, in a good way, when she doesn't.

It is also inconvenient that the door to the bar would only open onto the front hallway of his house. Not because the place is small - far from it but because the carpet is brand new and his wife will complain forever about the marks.

'Just wheel it through. Mine's out front, you can follow me to where we're starting.'

There's a smirk and not a very nice one at that.

'If you can keep up. If not, good luck finding your way back to here to get home.'

Ramon is even more of an asshole when at home, surrounded by his hangers-on (there are a few of them around, all armed and eyeing Dinah and her bike up).

It probably says a lot about dinah that she's more aware of being eyed up when she's in full leathers and short dark hair than in a wig and fishnets. Maybe it's because it's not quite as full-on. She's getting attention, without the confidence of being the Canary.

She glances around at the men quickly, perhaps because she's nervous and inimidated by so many armed men in one room. But in that second it takes to look around, she's counted guns, identified anyone likely to be carrying a hidden weapon, andfigured out exactly what she'd have to do for each man should this go south.

It's not going to go south; she's just Dinah Lance, a florist, and is here to have a bike race, not engage any organised crime.

She smiles back at him pleasantly. "You wouldn't really leave me stranded here, would you?"

Dinah's Spanish isn't brilliant, but she listens anyway, and doesn't suspect that he said anything she needs to worry about.

She watches Rico as he takes her bike, wondering briefly whether anyone would tamper with it, then decides she'd just have to deal if they do. Without her bike in her hands, she lets them fall to her side, loose but she's not relaxed enough to tie them up with activity.

"Works for me. I'd like to see where we're going."

Dinah shoots the girl a friendly, winning smile, but before she can asked to be introduced, or even if this is his wife, she's being gestured outside, so the smile becomes an apologetic wave.

It'd be nicer outside if Dinah wasn't in biker leathers and had her legs exposed to the wind, but she can't get away with biking in fishnets. She's even got a helmet, which she never needs but she'd been worried she'd have to explain its absence.

She perks up when she sees Ramon's bike. "That's a beauty," she says. But hers is better. Hers is Ted's.

Dinah shrugs, smiling again. "Bike's got a lot more mileage under the belt, as well."

The reminder of what they're racing for so shortly after seeing his pregnant wife knocked some of the wind out of her, but she'd be damned if she's going to let him notice this.

"Anyway," she says as she lays a glove back on the handlebars of her Triumph. "My uncle'd kill me if I lost this."

Ted would laugh at her, actually. Then punch her extra hard in the training ring.

Dinah smirks at him as she swings her own leg over. That was the exact opposite of what she meant.

She slips her own helmet on, visor up all the same; bugs have never bothered her, really.

(Perhaps the DC Universe doesn't have bugs)

"Where do those guys think I came from?"

It's been bothering her.

Dinah grins and shrugs visibly for him. She's not really familiar with the concept of not being friends with the peple you work with.

"Just wondered what you'd told them, is all."

Dinah is surprised, but it doesn't last long. Firing up her Triumph, she starts smoothly, without anything like that spray of gravel. He ends up ahead of her at first, but she closes the initial distance in hardly anytime, keeping a respectful distance behind him.

"OK."

Dinah's not very good at acting the scared vulnerable young woman, so she doesn't even try; the assumption that she can't take on considerable numbers of armed thugs on her own is so obvious to nearly everyone that she doesn't need to worry about it.

Anyway, she doesn't want her bike stolen while her back's turned in a fight. She clears her throat quietly, responding to a niggle, and realises that she probably couldn't scream around here if she wanted to. None of this is on the plan, anyway; it's just nice to know where she's going.

"How long's the route?"

That thought occurs to to Dinah briefly as well. And the biggest worry is how she can keep her time down without hurting anyone too badly. She's sure she'll manage, anyway.

"Sounds good to me," she says, unaware of how naive that sounds.

Dinah changes her mind about her helmet and tosses it to one of the guys. She figures she'll need all of her peripheral vision for this.

She grins and draws her bike up next to Ramon's, tucking her hair behind her ear as she does so.

The grin she gives him is friendly. They might as well be racing for bragging rights.

Dinah's reflexes kick it as soon as the hand moves, but she starts up smoothly, so for a second he's got a lead.

And then she's right on his back wheel, figuratively snapping at his heels. It's not exactly a safe distance, but her handling is perfect, and she's not trying to overtake, just alert him to what he's up against.

At this point she pulls back a little, and gives him some space. For about fifty yards, before she guns her own engine and speeds to the side. There's just about enough space there so that, without hurting any of the buildings, she can overtake neatly.

Dinah eyes him in her mirror and checks ahead just before they turn, in order to decide that fighting him on the turn isn't worth it.

She gives him a very narrow gap in order to take through; if he's quick, and good, and cocky enough to try it. She suspects he's all three.
