Ahh, are you not going to be there? Simmons1 was telling me tonight he thought your street ride was going to stop back at the Circle T at lunch time and then continue into the afternoon. I liked that plan.

LOL, if that's the case, Rusty has definitely been "garage kept" while you have been rode hard.

You oght to go to Roll the Bones Rally...good way to meet folks of all brands and see the dirt. We have some pretty good roads
I work a 24 on the 27th of October or I'd be in. 24/48 has its perks, and occasionally drawbacks too.

I...AM ...DEFINATELY...PLANNIN ON BEIN THERE...Hafta be sumthin pretty BIG to keep me away (maybe a bug zapper?hmm...). I was just gonna give Ghost the maps in case there might be some sort of prize giveaway decisions/plannin bein done ahead of time. ....Besides...I still heed to get my chair which I left at Shady's campout.(good thing it wasn't a Barcalounger).

....As for the rally ride(s)....I had indeed hatched (sorry for the visualization) a plan to do a Sat mornin streety ride then back for some quick lunch & out again by 1PM.
I may alterize the lunch meet to maximize the pavement proximity by havin lunch in Goatsville instead. It's a pretty good highway slog (15-20mi)from Hamilton to the asphalt goatpaths. Here's the scenario......

Leave O T Sat morn headed to Bosque Co via The Gap....some of my spaghetti on a platter route plannin then wind up in eastern Coryell & Gatesville. Everyone for the afternoon ride meet us somewhere to eat. We could then head west to drop the mornin folks off on FM932/1241 for a nice ride back to Hamilton/O T. The rest can hit all the goodies in western Coryell/northern Lampasas/Hamilton Counties while winding back toward O T for the evenin.

What'chall think?? OOPS...I prob should post this on the RTB thread.

I want everybody to know that the PR2 rear I have on the little Harley is one tough tire. Seems better than the PR3. If anybody wants a road only tire this thing rocks and the price is way better.

This weekend I should have the Big Ugly back together. Thinking of doing the Paved Raid one day, Rally Raid the other. See if I need to modify anything before it goes to press. Anybody riding?

Contrast, umm fun. Had several IVP's for kidney stones then one time they did a CT with contrast instead. All of them use some sort of iodine contrast, but the CT one had an automatic injector. No pain, but weird feeling it dump into my bloodstream that fast the taste on the back of my tongue. Ah, what memories. Glad I'm cured of those stones.
