...back to the parade....
I had to drop out and enjoy some scenery while the traffic cleared.
A little oasis in the middle of a big 'ol state!
Found a little bit of twisty dirt too.
Along with it came my first experience with 'bump gates'
You literally bump the gate with your front wheel then rush through it before it slams shut on you!
I hit 3 of them that day and this one was heavy and needed an extra kick 1/2 way through! :eek1
Then all of a sudden 3 familiar bikes appeared. Psyclops was about to tow redone in an attempt to bump start the dead katoom!
I hung around for a while and enjoyed the entertainment and made sure they had things in control, of course.
I'll try to get some more up later tonight....taking a short break from oil change maint. etc right now...almost time for a dinner run/test ride!
A few more sights along Hackberry Rd.
Back at camp for grub! :dg
I'm not very good at people pics but I tried to zoom in and get a few candid shots on Sat out in the yard. Most didn't turn out very good, bad lighting, out of focus, funny facial expressions etc....but here's a few that I thought were maybe OK
....Pansy and Hollywood sum up my people picture takin' skills.
Maybe it's not just me?.....Trip and Grainbelt might really be shady characters!
Dang Kev.... Where was that TXmotofoto taken :huh
I didn't see any photo guys out the week before :eek1
You have some great shots OF TX Kevin
Now what event was that again ???
To bad our trip was 3/28-4/8.....
Thanks griz& all!
Lady D that photog was set up East of Leakey? atop the hill in a mild sweeper....
That was what was once called the THC Rally short for Texas Hill Country. It's no longer posted on the open forum and kinda goes by word of mouth now, I consider myself lucky to have been allowed in!!
Ah so ... Yeah during the week when we rode the Hill country ...
No photo people out... But we had the roads to ourselves..
OK... I see Pansy was there I haven't seen her in a while...
I have my pic up in a photo site... Just haven't gotten my RR done...
Sunday morning...ahhh noonish, I hopped in line with Trip's train for a day-trip up to Dallas.
It was Trip, knary, Curvy, sparkplug, Truckin_Thumper and myself....
Lots of straight road but the wildflowers were spectacular!
It wasn't all straight though.
....nor was it all flat.
Feeble attempt to capture the roadside colors...at speed.
