2018 Texas Hill Country 500 - Nov 2-4, 2018

Well you guys are still on the trail today, but I wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to two guys who I canít remember their names now who showed up in J.C. about 9:00am and made mistake to ask if I needed any help, boy did I put them to work. Then a special thanks to Elio (spelling?) who provided so much help both setting up Friday but outdid himself on Saturday morning helping to pick up and put up. Couldnít have done it without you and many others that helped throughout the event!

If you are returning to J.C. to get your vehicle or who may have left some gear behind. I put a combination lock on barn 2 so you can get your stuff even though we are not there to greet you. Please call or text me to get the combo, I already gave it to a couple of guys.

To the guy with the camo jacket in the new barn, I moved it to the old bar with the combination lock, just reach out to me and I will get you in. My cell is 512. Four zero six 1796

Thank you one and all for attending, this was our first ever event of this scale and I will make a few improvements for next year. Hope everyone had fun and returns safe

Lastly, there are some tires on the covered area, please feel free to take any you would like.

Sincerely, Mike and Mary!

Thanks Mike for the excellent hospitality! I think everyone feels the same and we all had a great time even with a few minor injuries. Look forward to it all again next year.

Mike and Mary. Thanks so much. I had a great time at your place and the Hill Country 500 was an outstanding experience.

For those that don't know me I am Ron the guy with the Ducati and the one flying the Drone around. I got some great video of the meet up in Johnson City and some of the riding. I will share with anyone that has Google Drive. I would like any pictures or video of the event please. I have Google Drive, One Drive and iCloud so if you have any please pm and I will give you the account info to share with. I will put together a 3 to 4 minute video with the stills and video as a kind of promo of the event. So please share your images and videos.

Thanks a bunch in advance.

Re: 2018 Texas Hill Country 500 - Nov 2-4, 2018

I meant to post this, this morning, but I just found it sitting here open on my computer. I musta forgot to hit send. This should probably go in ride reports, but I wasn't sure which subforum to put it in so a mod can move it as desired.

I didn't ride the 500 but my wife and I did go down and enjoy Mike's hospitality and his very fine ranch Friday night. I didn't get a chance to meet him, when I went looking to say thanks, he'd disappeared into the darkness somewhere and no one seemed to know where, but please know Mike that I enjoyed the experience a great deal. We ate some very good BBQ, the potato salad and sausage were particularly good and visited with tgtumbleweed (Ken), Fossil (Roland) and the Little General (Robert), as well as some others.

We Rode home using some of the nicer roads available and wound up doing just over 521 miles total for the 2 days.

Good times. Thanks to all that had a hand in putting it together including the web master that makes it possible.

That reminds me, I spoke to a game warden at the low water crossing on CR308 on Sunday, and he wanted me to tell everyone that going around barricades that are up due to high water is an arrest, not a ticket. At least in Llano county. Ride safe, ride smart. He then proceeded to talk bikes with us

Well, it's a good thing we all turned around!

By the way, to all that were able to ride my trials bike Friday, I wanted to let you know when I was putting it away the other day, it told me it may need some therapy after all the abuse it took. It has no clue what it did wrong to be so mistreated by so many (you know who you are) LOL

Thank goodness they are designed to be abused
