    I fell asleep when I returned from today’s ride, which beat me up again struggling against the winds riding up to Fort Davis Mountain and the Mc Donald Observatory... Awesome roads... it had been a while since riding nice sweepers and twisties, without a speed limit per say, remembering someone not too long ago telling me that I would be done here in a couple days!... So much to see, so much to ride... The start is in today’s Blog.

    Be well...

    I think that was me :huh :lol3 I toured the Davis Mountain area in two days two years ago, I ride fast on the 954RR and when you do 400-500 miles per day you can see a lot :D

    that got me thinking about this place http://www.royersroundtopcafe.com/catalog/

    The Buttermilk Deluxe is excellent. They'll even ship them, but I don't know what kind of shape it would be in by the time it landed in Chicago. It's a pretty pricey pie as well.

    I can't wait to leave Boston (no offense, I've been here over a year) and get back home to Texas. Tex-Mex, BBQ, cookouts, etc...Come on March 31st!!!

    I will miss the lobster though.:thumbup

    Grabbed a room just east of Tucson, gonna shut my eyes for a few hours, then hit the road in your direction. :thumb I'm guessin' 2-3:00 p.m. :dunno

    I'll call from a gas stop when I've got a better idea, as it all depends on how quickly I can drag my ass outta this bed. :twitch

    Quite a contrast from yesterday, was a cool night at the most which even allowed us for a nice walk... Spirit had some problems during the night... and this morning I woke up to snow flurries!
    Am I complaining?... not the least... will take it any way it comes... specially after yesterday’s great ride as written in the Blog...

    Be well...

    It was an anticipated day to see Meathead, (Mark), can you understand his handle through some of the pictures?... swing by here, Fort Davis, TX, and join me for dinner...
    I have posted the pictures and the short stay on my Blog...

    Enjoy and be well...

    Hard to believe that one week and more has already gone by in this New Year... time is starting to speed up as I look at maps, there is no plans or directions, the weather will be my guide mostly as I have to move on to warmer climates, mainly for Spirit. With even two coats on, the poor guy is cold, he does not want to go out and I am not feeling comfortable with his lethargic days... we both need our exercise... him as much as me!

    We did not ride yesterday... spend it mostly at Jerry’s and Nalda’s Bookstore... it amazes me for a town this small how many interesting people there are... so many conversations!

    There are always pictures from the past that do not make it on the Blog... with Cagiva 549's permission I have posted some of the recent past ones...

    Hope you enjoy...

    Be well...

    Don’t you be thinking now...
    On my way back from Balmorhea Hot Springs, a few miles into the ride, a black truck with blue and red was flashing... I could not see very well beyond it, looked like a couple bikes had kissed the grass...
    Not so...
    They were shooting a commercial! I stop... U turn... going the wrong way... the local Sheriff is not very happy, but the guys are... a sidecar with a dog? compared to the usual two wheel stuff they have been working on. Any chance to be in it?... I ask... sorry... wrong brand!
    Oh well... maybe better luck next time...
    The rest of the riding was great... it is all the Blog.

    My last day in Texas... you have been good to me... I leave with some new friends and some incredible memories... and I will be back! There is no doubt about it...

    Be well...

    Hey now, I can't help it that in Chicago the only thing we acknowledge to be a pizza has a 3” crust and red sauce on top :freaky the sauce is the best part :clap
