I will be there on the Wing next month, Feb 15th - 19th. Do you have a recommendation for purchasing and installing a rear tire (180/60R16) in the Phoenix area? Pie would be good too! League City to Phoenix 1238 miles, 18.4 hours. I am thinking I will stop overnight on the way though, but may be not ... hmmmm.
Josiah did my last install on a C/T. I think it was the first one he had ever done. He is a certified BMW wrench that opened his own shop about a year ago but he's done oil changes on my Wing as well as the C/T.. Young guy but has a strong following and a good reputation here in Phx.

As far as purchasing a tire, no suggestions. I'm going to order my replacement C/T from Discount Tire. It will be another Pirelli Eufori RF.

We had breakfast at Lucy's Mom's Cafe in Aubrey, good breakfast, you go to the counter, place your order than they bring the plate to you.

They didn't know we were coming, talked to Steve Murray (original owners of Lucy's in Celina) as he was in the dinning room checking with customers, he knows now.

Do you know what time you will be coming? and how many? We want to have the pies out of the oven in time!

More food -- last time I was there in July it was 108 degrees.
I stopped in Pie Town and ate on Oct 2nd as part of a trip thru NM, CO, UT and AZ. It was 40F and raining! REALLY needed pie and coffee that day.

Will probably do a similar run in late spring before the road through the Panhandle and NM turns to a gooey, hot, sticky mess. July is for making sure the tops of the Rockies are still there, not slogging around in the desert.:lol2:

Will try to get over to Ray Roberts to tell some lies..... ummmmmm.... bench racing tales if I can get free.

XC!!! Fix that darned Suzy 850 and get up here. No excuses!

The carb bodies are seperated from me, and partially disassembled. :-D

...

In other words, there's good progress! The only question will be if I can get them back together and tuned without a big problem. :rider:

I have faith that your consummate skills will triumph. (did I just say that?) But, darn, I am gonna be too old to talk you out of a 'memory trip ride' on that sucker by the time you get finished.:rider:

yep been researching weather patterns and June looks better for two reasons.

cooler and June 18th marks the Bicentennial of the war of 1812.

so now I just have to find someone from England to ride with to Pie Town for peace pie! :mrgreen:

Haha, the work clouds parted and the great Gods of the weekend smiled sweetly upon me & my machine.

In other words...

Count me in for pie in Hico!

I'm just unreasonably optimistic in general. It's nice in my little world. ;-)

OK, Pie Run this Weekend and I've managed to shift my schedule around to make it to this one.

Since it's fairly close I'll probably ride the Ducati. The one with the wood seat.

Weatherman says it should be around 32 degrees in the morning so make sure your electric gloves are working good.

I do believe I'll have to make it to the one this month - but only because it's in the twisty fun Medina, and not the stone's throw from Mexico (and even further away than my ranch) Medina.

Medina, eh? I may be able to drag out a bunch of ruffians I work with. Mostly because it's only about 50 miles from Culebra and 1604. :-P

I'm gonna do my very best to attend this month's Medina run as my first pie run.

5 hours on a 250 for pie! BRING IT ON! :rider:
I must be getting old! 5 hours and 300 miles on a 250 dirt bike does not sound like fun.
Especially when you consider it also 5 hours and 300 miles back too!

10 hours and 600 miles? When I was younger, sure!


But I do like pie.

I ate lunch at the Jay Cafe in Needville today and spoke with Tim, the owner, and let him know we were coming on the 28th. He said if we could give him a heads up on the numbers, he would staff up and make sure there was enough pie. I eat there often and they cook everything fresh so it is pretty important that they know what's coming.

Focus frenzy, if you can get a count as we go, I will stay in contact with Tim and let him know what to expect.

I have not tried their pie but our Burgman group has stopped there for catfish several times. I wouldn't say the catfish is the best I've every eaten but it is better than average and worth the stop. I keep looking at the pie table every time I go in but I always eat to much catfish to leave room for the pie.
