I hear you loud and clear......and unfortunately can't help one bit because I don't have the energy to fight that fight anymore. The weather should be nice, so hanging out in the back yard, or the garage, or the street should make the day go by faster. Moving targets are harder to hit, so to speak.I was just thinking about Sunday. Although I could probably go for a ride Sunday . Some family is going to be at the house that I don't like hanging with anyway. Please!
Been kind of lurking around watching this thread, but @lesblank has been nudging me towards participation. I hesitate for a couple of reasons, the biggest one being my bike is going in for warranty/recall work and I am not 100% certain I will have it back by April 11. I hope so, but......We can reschedule for the 11th.
I'm not going to be able to make it, sorry.Ok, everybody, here we go:
Lesblank, Safetyart06 and son to meet at Bucees on 290 and Mueschke at 9:00 on Sunday April 11th. Any other riders from the West Side should meet there. Kickstands up at 9:30 headed to Cleveland, TX. Just Past Cleveland on FM 105 we will stop at the Fuel Max #46 for a restroom and water break (gas suggested as well) and we can meet Alan Rides there per his request. On from there to Beaumont on FM 105. Again, water, restroom and more riders. Hoping to pick up JasonP and Louisiana Jeff as well as any other S/E Texas riders that want to join us. Only thing here is, I am not familiar with a good meeting place so one of the locals will have to suggest a spot and give us details. Times will be confirmed as you guys look at this and figure the distance. From there, up to Mama Jacks in Kountze (recommended by Louisiana Jeff) for lunch. After lunch, a trip through the Sam Houston National Forest to Huntsville. In Huntsville, it is pretty much up to the rest of the group after that. As for myself, I will be making my way toward Cypress, but not sure as to which route. May just follow Les. Any suggestions at this point would be welcome. PaulieBoy, check the route on the map on page 9 of this thread and let us know if there is a place you can meet us if you would like to join. We can always make an extra quick stop if we need to. Not a problem at all. Everyone, please throw in suggestions and please let us know if you are going to be able to make the ride. I will be checking this thread often until Sunday morning.
Ride safe, ride often and hope to see you out on the road.
Oh, and for those of you who are new: you don't have to ride a Yamaha to join us. We even let a Harley or two ride with us on special occasions. Also, bring anybody you would like just make sure they are not in a hurry and don't take risks around other riders. See y'all soon.
Sounds good, I was thinking the same thing. Save the East Ride when others can go. Carla and I were in the car but found some pretty cool roads out the west way.AlanRides, hoping you can make it.
Les, if nobody is coming out of West Louisiana or Beaumont/Port Arthur area, we may change our route slightly. We will discuss when we meet on Sunday morning.
Keep us posted.I hope to attend, but the dealer is not exactly breaking a sweat to get my bike back to me as they've had it since open of business 4/3. They must love to look at it in their shop as once they get it for whatever needs doing, they don't get in a hurry to get it back to me. If they come through in time I'll let you know, but as of right now I am without a ride......
