I worked on TheBeast ..
First last week I cut the windshield down.. And painted it Black...
Here's the New look..


Dang I forget to take pic... While jacking up both bikes at the same time

Yesterday I had to swap out my rear tires with TheBeast and TheBlack..
The rears on TheBeast are almost bald...
And TheBlack still have about 10K left on them...

The Beasts are still good for local riding.. Just NOT long trips..
So with our upcoming TX trip coming.. I thought I would do the switch aroo...
Good thing That they are both the same ... The Joys of owning 2 the same bikes/kits... Now I still have to put a NEW front tire on TheBeast..
I'll do that this week...

The Beast will be the main vehicle this year... TheBlack needs work...
LOL Not that TheBeast doesn't need work.. It just needs less

Here's a cool group of pic that my friend set up from one of our many BRP runs on a Labor day weekend Back in 2007..
South to North... We started with 11 riders and just 7 of us finished...
Some just got tired of all the fog/frizzle ... And didn't want to run the full length in 2 days

Oh my did we have a BLAST that weekend....

Gone To Texas !!! Part 1

Each Year our good friends have a Gathering of the Fools BarBQue..
This was the 15th year !!
We missed it last year do to Highbinder hurting his shoulder…

But this year we was ready !!!
WE headed out early in the morning on 3/28….
Not having any real plans on where we will stop for the night,other then Thursday we would meet up with some friends...



We both were so ready for a trip…



Once it got light out we could see the redbud was in full bloom….


We ran out the first 165 miles and stopped for fuel and a snack…



I always liked this wall around Chattanooga…



The bikes were running great !!! BTW … Theses two Valks are our original Valkyries..
HB had gotten his in 2001, And I got mine in 2002..They have taken us on many adventures over the years…Across the US 5 times !! They have their battle scars…



Well once we got into Mississippi ,It got bloody hot.. Hey we still dressed for winter ..And had our winter riding jackets… Yes we took them off for a while… WE had the road to ourselves….



As we get into Hattiesburg we hit a little rain, not a lot just a few drops.. We can never get through there with out hitting any rain NEVER!!! LOL



We get to Picayune, MS and stopped for the night with 750 miles for the day ,not to bad we rode easy all day with fuel and snack stops.. We made sandwiches in our room, After all we had the cooler with us..
We called our buddy Valkhound aka Dana… To find out where his is spending the night…We come to find out he & John was 18 miles down the road !!! LOL to funny…
So Thursday morning we meet up and head out for TX….
Boy was it foggy that morning…



I took this photo of Pilot John… Yeah John flies Jumbo jets !!! We meet him for the first time on the Whiskey run a few years back…



Out first stop that day was the Little Capital…It’s right before the long bridge across The swamp….



Then we are to meet up with our other buddy Strider aka Warren in Scott, La..



Then it’s off to Texas…Via the Beach… I did see this Great Dane enjoying his ride..



Once on the beach road the skies started to look ulgy!!!
Sea foam was blowing onto the road…
Even the Pelicans were having problems flying in the winds..



Crystal Beach is still rebuilding…



Once we got to the end and waiting for the ferry all hell broke loose.. And the rains came… This was the first time I didn’t get a chance to walk around on the Ferry and look at the birds… It was a cold rain that was blowing and stinging..
And at times the guys worried about the bikes might blow over…
So Dana sat on his.. I stood by the door that lead to downstairs where these big blowers blew warm air!!! Strider and Highbinder stood with me enjoying the warm air.. As I said we were all cold…



Now at this point Strider took point… That’s all I have to say about that….
We get to Pearland/Friendswood… After a good while ...



All looking like drowned road rats… LOL yes we are made of sugar and all melted...



Even the bikes.. Oh Valkhound now has a flat tire!!



Stay tunes for the rest of Gone To Texas!!! A 3 or maybe 4 part RR …

And he didn’t get a chance to fix it before this ride…

Heading back to Pearland… Bandit, Strider, Misfit behind me…



Hahahaha Strider has a strap on .. No not that kind .. That’s his MP3 player…

Thanks ..
HB & I used our RDV '11 cups and had our RDV shirts with us for our trip... So Rick was on our minds most of the time...

TX calls them Crawfish..
LA. Calls them MudBugs
PA. calls them Crawdads
VA. & WV calls them bait

Still uploading the 200 + other pic for the rest of the ride...

HB and I rode to Roanoke today to pick up some parts we had ordered from Star City PowerSports..

HB hopped on a 2011 WeeStrom and took it on a little test ride...

I don't know if he'll pull the trigger or not...The verdict is still out..
But he looked good on it ...

He said it was a whole lot lighter then the Valks..

Hey B ..
Glad ya dropped in ..
HB and I was just talking about ya'll the other day..

Here some food porn .. I made this week....

Meyer Lemon/White Chocolate tart



3 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream
2 Meyer lemons juiced
4 oz of a good white chocolate
1 lower half of a nice home made pie shell...

My home made pie shell...
1 cup White Whole flour
a small hand full of rawsugar
1/3 cup veg shorting
3 TB of cold water..



In a stainless bowl beat eggs until blended.Stir in sugar & Meyer lemon juice..

Cook over boiling water,stirring continuously with a wire whisk until mixture thickens,resembling pudding..

Remove from heat and stir in white chocolate until melted completely in well blended..



Set aside and cool at room temperature. Cover and chill..

Make your pie shell ,bake til golden brown



Whip the cream to firm peaks..



Fold the cooled lemon mixture into the cream..



Fold in well so that all cream is gone...



Spoon in to the baked pie shell..




You may garnish with extra whipped cream ....



Chill for 2 more hours... and serve

Here have some !!! This is not like a meringue type pie
