Re: East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club Meeting First Thursday

We discovered today that the biggest fishing tournament of the year is happening this Saturday at Lake Fork Marina, and it will be very crowded with limited parking.

We are moving the Saturday morning ride to Richies in Hawkins, on U.S. 80, in between Mineola & Gladewater.

Hope to see you there around 8 or 8:30.

Re: East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club Meeting First Thursday

The October meeting of the East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club will be held this Thursday, the 5th at Legend's Burgers in Jacksonville (1630 S. Jackson) at 6:30 p.m.

Some of use are planning to camp out at Boykin Springs campground, near Zavalla, TX on Saturday the 21st. Ron will be leading a ride from Legend's at 9 am, heading to the Texas Star Cafe, 205 N Wheeler St, Colmesneil, TX, with a planned arrival of about 12:30. Afterward, anyone who wants to camp will head over to Boykin Springs. You can always just meet us at the cafe and skip the group ride. A couple of us might camp on Friday night. There are toilets & showers at the campground, but no electricity.

November
We will have a picnic for the club.

December
We'll head to the Moose Head Cafe in Crockett for pie on Saturday, December 30th.

Re: East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club Meeting First Thursday

I'm a definite on the Moosehead Cafe, it's become a end of year tradition over the past several years, see y'all there.

IMS is a maybe, but still planning on it.

Cameron and I had to miss last year's Moto GP, but I've made hotel reservations in San Marcos for '18 as my safety room. Y'all better get your rooms now. The Best Western in Lockhart (where we stayed in '16) is sold out, and just a few rooms left in San Marcos. And Austin hotels are charging what the market will bear ($$$).

Re: East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club Meeting First Thursday

I'll moss the Moosehead event for the first time in years, but She Who Generally Knows Best and I are doing a short New Year's cruise to Cozumel with grandsons and their parents. (Last year Moosehead was my first ride after I got out of a wheelchair and cast.) I'll see you at the Koffee Kup in Hico in January.

IMS is on my calendar.

Re: East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club Meeting First Thursday

Howdy, ETBMW+ friends.

I am a maybe for the Pie Run this weekend. It's been a tradition for my dad and me, so I'm checking to see if he feels up to it this year. Based on the Little Rock, Grapeland, and Crockett weather forecasts, if we show, we'll be in a pick up truck this year. Dad isn't riding much these days and he sure won't ride in 40-degree temps.

Being back in the south, I do plan on making the bike show, in Dallas, this year. It'd be fun to catch up with you guys. Maybe meet up as I pass through East Texas?

I haven't budgeted any vacation for the GP, this year, but you never know...

-Jeff

Re: East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club Meeting First Thursday

We had nine turn out from the club, and there was another nine or ten from other parts. The constant mist kept it wet, thank goodness for heated gear today!

The next time Jeff F asks me if I want to drive somewhere, my only response will be, "What time are you picking me up?" I will no longer say, "It's not that bad, let's ride."

You don't have to do the group ride on anything listed below; you can always ride on your own and meet us at the destination. Or drive and meet us.
