Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

Was in DFW this week for work and decided to take the Avoid Highways navigation option back toward San Antonio, for as long as I could afford the time.

Here are a couple of things I found.

Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

Good Lord Almighty, it’s HOT. Got up early and got out to get another Tour of Honor site and a courthouse or two.

Coming back on I-10 just west of Columbus and found a parking lot. Bailed off to 90 to 71 business to FM 109 to 36 to Brenham. Taking shelter in Starbucks to get out of the heat.

Yes I’m drinking hot coffee. Along with a lot of water from my camel back.
Beats working.

Got a little ride in on my new motor. The old motor spun a lower rod bearing last week on a ride.

Post your Day Rides Here!

Went for a ride today with my son, we made a loop from the house. We stopped at JMZ’s place to snap pic to send him since he was working. I happened to notice Colton’s front tire low so we grabbed some air and headed for the house. We made it home before it went flat again. I’m glad he is old enough to bust his own tires.

That rear shock spring looks KTM Orange. Did you add that for reliability?

Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

I took the KTM tail bag I had on the bike off. I think that’s the reason I lost the motor at 76k.

Took a quick loop around tawakoni Sunday morning using county roads and saw this. Pretty neat. Was flowing water too but may have been decorative

Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

Did a quick morning sprint up to the Red River. 70 degree temps and low humidity felt amazing. Had breakfast at the river.

Sucks people cant treat what few free public areas that we have in Texas with some respect. GS is running great and the megaphone can sounds better than the straight can I took off a few days ago.

Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

That pipe looks great and sure it sounds sweet. The litter is awful, it seems to be that way everywhere. People are what they throw out the window.
Thanks for the ride report

Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

Rode to check out closed down Lignite mine and power plant. saw no Bit Coin construction activity. Did see huge pile of metal from wrecking out smelters. Just rode in, no security no problems . The one Picture is the end of the conveyor that extends from Rockdale to almost Elgin Butler area. All the parking lots have weeds. Superman once took a piece of coal or was it lignite and squeezed it in his hand so hard that it became a diamond. Nothing resembles anything shiny out at old Alcoa plant. Just rusting metal and all it is.... "is black lignite dust in the wind."
