Have you thought about taking up golf, it's safer.

Thanks Yoda!

Here's a thought for tomorrow, which is worse, rush hour traffic in Dallas/Houston or trying to get a seat in a Mexican food place on the the 5th of May?

Well, you can generally wait in the bar or on the patio drinking a margarita and eating chips in the TexMex place. You can't do those things in your car.

You wisely didn't include Austin rush hour in that question because we all know there are few things are worse than Austin traffic.

Copied from schick's Final Ride thread. Making damn sure everybody sees it.

Well, we finally have a plan for schickmeister's send-off. Gonna do Loco at noon next Saturday. I'm gonna ride out from China Spring to probably Comanche and meet up with Jason and ride to LC. Everybody is welcome to join me. Eat. Ride. End up Saturday at the Bosque Resort Motel linked upthread. Dinner probably around 7 but look for updates.

Gonna drink and eat at the restaurant on the premises. Liquor store next door. Jason has to head back to Angelo Sunday when he sobers up but, the rest of us are free to wander around. And I plan on doing that.

Post or send pm if you are in for all or part. I'll be making Jason's and schizz's reservations tomorrow.

Whether ya got to meet the youngster yet or not, you're welcome to ride and/or eat and drink with us.

Let's see if we can make him uno mas memory of his Texas year. I don't know if we can top the chicken in the bathroom in Castell, but dammit. We'll try.

Good read if you got a couple minutes. He answers a lot of questions in the comments.

Looks like they don't want our ugly bikes at the moment. But maybe SoG's shiney hog.

Shiney? I think this deployment done got to your memory, boy. I'm gonna have to spray the mud off from my after midnight ride home last night from the ghostranch. After the rain. Don't want to piss my peeps off. My peeps. My peeps. lol.

And I guess it's more of a hoglet.

Well in all truthiness, I have never seen The Hog, so I can't say if it is, or is not, shiney. I can say, that when I heard you had a Hog, I couldn't picture it. Has it been through a water crossing?

Yup. Several. It has to go thru my spillway to get to the cabin, too.

It is cleaner than any other bike I have, but as you may remember, that is a damn low bar to jump.
