Great ride and great company. First four of us (rickSteven, Daveg, Kennyd and me) meet at Denny's inside the Houston loop for breafast. Then we rode I-10 (boooooring) to the meeting point at.... [well, I was just following Daveg] with Klrprew and ??? (Sorry)

The weather was great, a little foggy, hwy 87 is gone for most of the time. What is left are big chucks of asphalt that make he ride challenging.

We manage to made it without a single crash or drop. Not even the WeeStrom!!

This may sound worse,if you live on the coast you should know what to expect!!!All my family are coastal folks,just part of it.

Worst part of that trip,which was kinda cool was getting gas at a ship dock and powerbars for lunch as everything was ,uh,gone.

Love to go but I'm out until probably may.Riding out of town:clap:
Well maybe sneak something in.:trust:


Hey Bryan,where you been?

I am not sure where the nude beach is supposed to be but there was nobody near the water, we just pass a guy on a Wrangler. I guess nude beaches in TX are diferent because based on my experience in Europe, nude beaches are not always a treat. :eek2:

Bro, it is FAR from a treat....and the nude beach is on the high island side of McFaddin Bch.

There just wasn't anyone at the beach to be nude. The two other times I've done the ride, it was all men all :giveup: happy to see us.

:eek2: :eek:

... Whatever someone is comfortable with is okay with me.. If ya wanna be nude, that place is a fine place to be I suppose
