Prolly in for today. Slept late. Will cage it as I have to pick up dog food (two 30-40 lb bags) on the way home. Still in my jammies, need to get dressed.

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - 11:00 (Billy's on Burnet)

Gee, the last post here was myself on August 31st. Last week our plane to San Diego was supposed to depart at 11:25am so didn't go to lunch at Billy's. Southwest ended up delaying our flight until about 4:30pm so coulda actually gone to Billy's. Yeah, five hours. They said it was foggy in Chicago where our plane originated from. Looking at the FAA website there were no delays in Chicago.

I'll be in for Billy's today the third Thursday of September (and 3 weeks after the last post). Even if I'm the only one. Will be riding the Suzuki as it's more funner (put 100 miles on it Wednesday).

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - 11:00 (Billy's on Burnet)

Using my weather skills and our WSI guy here at work, it was at worst MVFR at both MDW and ORD. Looked COSPA data from the 31st and there were thunderstorms to the south but nothing that should have impacted departures. Maybe reroutes over the Dallas area but that's pretty normal. I am wondering where your aircraft was before it left MDW or was it an originator from MDW that morning? If it was turning at MDW that morning and came in from an airport with weather problems...???

The scene from last Thursday. I left after eating around 11:40 since no one else was at Billy's. Weather was great.

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - 11:00 (Billy's on Burnet)

The last mod to the ridiculously modded CRF250L went on last night with Vinny's help. Need to put some more miles on to make sure all is well so planning to stop in to Billy's and/or the food trailer park while I'm running around.

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - 11:00 (Billy's on Burnet)

Great turnout this sunny day @ Billy's.

We had a special visitor today. The intrepid ADV rider, James (Jammin), who just moved to Austin stopped by Billy's Saloon. He shared some of his amazing stories from his extended globetrotting adventures on his DR650. James crossed one of the highest roads at close to 18,000 feet, rode the long savanna stretches of Eastern Africa and crossed the Atlantic with his bike on an freighter among the many exciting stories.





You can read more of his adventure on his ride link here. Right now, he is bike-less and is looking to purchase a new bike, perhaps a larger adventure style motorcycle.

Arnold (Big A) showed up on his Wing. He reminisced about the recent sale of his trusty KTM 690. I believe he wants the KTM back in his garage.

...howdy to the last minute visitor who popped in on his white Tenere!

Till next time...

In, but I can't eat at Billy's any longer. Food just makes me sad for the rest of the day. So: I'll be at the food trailers about 11:30 or 11:45 to eat, then will swing by Billy's for social enlightenment.
