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 ($$$).

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.

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...

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."

Below is a list of rides we have planned for the club for 2018. If a ride has "leave Legend's in J'ville at 9 am" under it, then it is a group ride from Legend's Burgers in Jacksonville (1630 S. Jackson) to the destination. The return trip is on your own, or tag along with someone heading home in your direction. 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.

We don't have a full schedule of monthly rides for the year yet. Feel free to bring ride ideas to the meeting or PMthem to me.

So far:
The International Motorcycle Show is at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas this Friday through Sunday.

Our club will hold the Texas National Picnic will be held at noon on Saturday, April 20 at Love's Lookout, north of Jacksonville.

We are trying to put together a Friday - Sunday campout to Arkansas in early May.

Hope to see you at the meeting.
