I’ll tell ya Les, if I didn’t have some installs going on at that time I’d seriously consider the trip. Give me a chance to cross off some more states on my riding patch!
Already rode to Texas before when I lived in San Diego. We used to ride out every year to Kenneth Copeland’s Eagle Mountain Motorcycle Rally.
Really wish my schedule permitted.

I have two sons that live in the Temple / Waco area, north west of Houston about 150 miles. Multiple times a year I make day trips to visit grandchildren. I get up and leave early, 6am, get there by 10, spend day till about 6pm, ride home, back by 10pm. The map below shows a 200 mile radius circle from Galveston. Anyone thinking of coming to the Lone Star Rally can easily ride down, spend most of day at rally and ride home that same day if within this circle. Any takers?

Hey, Les,

....would love to do it—and I am close enough it would be pretty easy—but this year is out given my work schedule. Lived in HTown for years, and I loved it there. Actually lived in Galveston about 500 yds from the sea wall in 1999/2000. My feelings about Galveston are way more complex, and less positive. But I haven’t been back since we left and I’d like to see it again, esp on 2 wheels. I’ll try to plan for next year!

Thanks for the reply. I've been going for many years now and sure I'll go next year. If something happens and you can go this year, just holler.

Hey Les, is like to offer a suggestion.
I know we’re reaching out to “members” here or their friends, but how about we reach out farther.
Maybe you should put your “group ride” on CycleFish. https://www.cyclefish.com/

It’s a national listing of all motorcycle meetings and events. Maybe we can draw some more people into the forum as well by doing this.
What do ya think?
