Hey Kevin!

I remember when that bike was almost new when we did the brick road ride from the Scrub.

I can't believe you've rolled the big 100K considering how much you ride the other bikes.

And I thought I was hot shit doing this with the '95 Town Car...

Thanks guys!


OK going back to the little day-trip taken on Friday the 20th....

Bender and I rode over to Cagiva's place.....














And once all systems were determined to be GO on the 'experienced' ninefiddy...he led us on an all back roads route to the Texas Hill Country!

Cagiva is a good tour guide, he even knows when and where to stop and let us old guys pee.














Maybe it could be mentioned that both Canon point and shoots were used on this trip....these are from the old 590 with all the dust inside.














He even found us a few opportunities to use the edges of our tires!

Bender knows how to rest a belly full of grub!

That Cagiva is good, real good!

Can't say that we didn't see any rain but I can say that we didn't ride in any!




He knew just when to pull over and how long to wait for the rain to pass.












In fact that Wed leaving home after work was the only time rain gear used.














It was a good thing that I put another coat of sno-seal on the boots though, I know Lady-D, but there's still some left in the jar!














Can you say 'low bridge'?

The closer we got to Bugscuffle, the bluer the skies became.














It truly was a pleasure to be led along these little ranch roads vs. slabbing it half way across the state!














...but it wasn't without it's perils!!














It was actually the black bull on the Left that had me concerned!














....but 'ol long horns was the only one to get excited and he just moseyed on down to the creek....

We made even it to the party in time for grub!
















Switch to new 150 now, not that the pics get any better though.
















D-Walt knows his mudbugs!



























...and knary really knows how to suck it!

Had a great time!


Was serenaded by rapid roy and danii














...went fishing with redone.














Caught a Treeefish.














It's easy to forget he's a Texican though as it seems like you run into him everywhere!!

I'm a man without a home and he's a local everywhere he goes!

Our group had the entire property of Foxfire cabins rented for the weekend, including this house down by the creek.



























Proof that redone actually made it down to the water to fish.
















Crystal clear btw!

Everybody seemed real happy to see me there.

I found a bed at the farmhouse down the street (also owned by the same people) Here's a little walk around the yard Saturday morning.



























The driveway...

What farmhouse is complete without some old sheds?








































The closest neighbors were across the river but they didn't bother us any.
