No gravel/dirt for my shined up wheels. I can meet you there no prob. Probably just do an out n' back for me.

Gotta repack and rest. Just got back from an 11-day trip, washed clothes, washed bike and I'm back out again on Friday for a long weekend.

After the deluge of rain, the non-paved roads are likely to be in rough shape.

And just cleaned and lubed my chain ...

Haters gonna hate ...

You people have fun, then. I'll go to the Spiral Diner.
You used to be less sensitive. Surely, you want to do the slacker ride. I haven't eaten at the place in Hico, should be fun. Plus I got a new seat to play with.:clap:

Not when the Mrs wants the lawn mowed. :deal:
For years, I've hurried home on Thursdays to get the grass mowed for the weekend. Now, I might mow on a Tuesday morning or a Saturday afternoon.

Why? because I can ...

WooHoo!

Retired is nice. Sort of like having plenty of time for everything. Much different than worrying about when I can do this or that. Plus, if a slacker ride pops up, I can finally go on one. The seat concepts seat needs a workout and I will try shaming Mitch into riding the gravel stuff on his "adventure bike". Even though it is really clean right now and his chain is perfectly cleaned and lubricated.

If there are no pictures I'm gonna be unhappy.
Here is a pic of the chop house wait staff taking our picture

That's the back of Ron's head.

A few roads Mary led us on I'd never been on. And what a fabulous day for a ride.

Cutting across Rough Creek Ranch was interesting

I did not speed.....
I did not wheelie....
I rode conservatively......
We did do some dirt roads and a tiny water crossing (really a wet spot)

enjoyed it, great route Mary and the Chicken Fried Steak was awesome.

P.S. I cannot say how much fun the FZ1 was between Cranfills Gap and Iredell. Incredible ride, very nice toy.

That is so wrong. Luckily I was riding in the back so there is no evidence. I can't believe Ron hasn't posted up his food pics. Think he is smarting over being corrected about his phone usage? :rofl:
