If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

That is pretty pimp. Nothing like getting out on the open road and the wind blowing through your hair. Armpit hair that is.

Also I think Mud's got it right. With your handle bars that high you can keep the deep water out of you handle bar electrics.

To each their own.

A great meeting and this time I didnt even fall once. Met many more inmates and the campfire was scintillating. Thanks Ghost and Mazie. More after a days digest!

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.
I m sorry that I wont be able to attend and its in my backyard. My granddaughter is graduating from A&M CC Saturday and the trip will be less expensive than the divorce that would happen if I did not attend it..

Shick I enjoyed our conversation at the Ghost Ranch, Im glad that I was able to display my acerbic wit to you personally so that you might know that all the website barbs were just from a sick mind. Good luck on your complicated immediate plans and Do keep us posted on this great CEN TEX ADV site. Let us know if and when you will be in this neck and I will be the first to greet you. Your OLD friend--- Has Been

I guess the rules just don't apply to some people. Went to enjoy his 1 1/2 hour lunch at another place next door. Do you say something or just let it go...

Excellent pic!! Man, if ya don't have fun on your pigadvbike on that road, just sell it.

I had a great weekend. Wish it was a cooler at times but....it'll do. Great evening at Ghost Ranch on Friday on the little Harley. Saturday back all day at Ghost Ranch and had a great ride led by BigDave and TXjames. Doing my best trying to keep up with the big dogs on KiLleR. That poor bike.

And then yesterday a great run to Mary's. Up by the traditional way but back home by some new stuff. Found a couple of keepers north of Ranger. One that was outstanding. Maybe 751? Dang. It was near perfect.

Only drama was my XR peep ran smooth outta gas coming into Morgan Mill (no gas). Looked back and he wasn't there. Oh, shit! Went back to get him, dawdled around long enough looking for gas, I ran out of gas, too. Shit. But I was right across from the house that a teenage boy had mentioned as a "possible". Sure enough, he had gas 2 gallons in a 6 gallon can . So there I go, carrying a 6 gallon gas can with .5 gallons in it under my chin. That's harder than it sounds, BTW.

Got enough in his to barely get him to Stephenville. (Apparently I took a gallon and a half of the two gallons available.) Oops. We parted ways and I was in the zone all the way home. 205, 51, 203, River Road, 798, 56, 1637. For the moment my high speed instability is gone. Little Harley handled the wind fantastic.

4400 miles on the Little Harley in 4 months. Not bad at all.

Yeah, he did well. We came to the first water crossing and it was just a muddy hole, not a real crossing. We're all on big bikes with Anakees or tourances and I thought the mud might get us, but no we plowed right through it. That was a bonus puddle on Deep Down. Then we popped up and rode north on 51 to Edwards. We turned left and DIDN'T do the Paluxy crossing where the girls with bikini's were. Generally, dropping your bike in front of bikini clad women isn't the way to impress them. Of course, I'm single, so what do I know...

As usual, this giant line of storms has split and is passing me by to the north and south. I'll get some wind damage is all.

Big Bird (get it? it's a yellow 1100GS....) is on the road again... It'll probably all get torn down again in a month or so, so this weekend I'm gonna get some riding in.

Devil's backbone maybe? I haven't been outside of Austin to explore much yet..
