Has a new restaurant been picked to replace the now-closed The Shed in Edom? I thought it was the All Star BBQ in Rusk, planning on going but making sure whether I'm right.

Hello, newbie around the forums and newbie rider in general. Are these meetups open to all bikes or just BMWs? Also do y’all still plan on meeting with the storms pending? I’m guessing it’s a play by ear situation. Thx!

Yes, riders on something other than BMWs are certainly welcome! That's the + in our club name, Plus other makes of bikes.

Our monthly meeting was last week (first Thursday), but we are having a picnic this Saturday at Love's Lookout, just north of Jacksonville on US 69. You are most welcome to join us there.

A group of us are riding up to the 2022 MOA Rally, held 16-18 June at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds, in Springfield, Missouri.
We will be leaving on Tuesday, June 14th, spending Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning riding Arkansas & Missouri roads, and arrive at the rally on the 16th.
We will be camping en route and at the rally. We are planning for a one-day trip back to East Texas on Sunday the 19th. I'm still working on details for the route.

One rider just wants to ride the first two days with us and not attend the rally. Please let me know if you are interested in riding along.

Has a new restaurant been picked to replace the now-closed The Shed in Edom? I thought it was the All Star BBQ in Rusk, planning on going but making sure whether I'm right.
I live pretty close to Edom. I think there is new ownership of the Shed. The former owner also opened a restaurant called Netties Place in Chandler.

But there is a cool place a little further down the road called The Forge in Ben Wheeler. They usually have live music and its a neat little town. Lots of bikes come from Dallas to have lunch on weekends there.
