Hey, Chuck and I are meeting at the I-45 Diner in Spring on Monday at 9:00a. He doesn't know that yet, but we are. You are all welcome to join. Afterwards he and I are headed to The River Inn for three days, to ride and do some planning for Europe. You are all welcome to join that too!

Thanks for the invite, Joe. Sure wish I was off; I love riding that area. Hope you guys have a great time.
No worries Rob, I really do like living up here. I get out quite often to ride "out in the country." Heading to Kerrville is just icing on the cake. Sorry I missed the ETEX 450.

I know it’s early but here’s a new place. Snooz in the Heights. 719 west 18th Street. Great food with different options. The manager says we can put some tables together and stay as long as we like.

Snooz, oh yeah! Here's the description straight from Goggle; "Vibrant, retro chain serving a seasonal menu of creative breakfast & lunch fare, plus cocktails." Sounds like a place with tiny eggs, fu fu potatoes, tiny cups of coffee and cloth napkins. Oh, and don't forget the cocktails.

Actually it is called Snooze an A.M. Eatery. A.M, does that stand for All Metro? Sounds like your kind of place. I wouldn't miss it (unless something better comes up).

Did you post this from your tent in the woods? Got your water wings on? Creek's a risin'.

Don’t get your hopes up to eat there because they have high standards and probably won’t let you in.

We came back Saturday evening because of the possibility of severe weather. I would have stayed myself but we don’t take chances with other people’s kids.

FYI ... Chuck mentioned that this is a "new place". But, please be aware this is a chain and there are three other locations in Houston. The one he mentioned and the one I added the link to is the one most Northern and closest to Chuck. If you go to the one on Montrose, in Town and Country Village or in Cinco Ranch, you may be there alone. On the other hand, if we go to the one at 719 W. 18th it may only be Chuck, Karen and me.

Y’all enjoy the upscale ambiance....I’m headed back to Houston and just finishing loading out for the day. Taking the wing south along MO19 headed toward Mountain Home, AR for the first leg of the day.

Sorry you couldn't make it Tom. I had a pretty good breakfast, a "breakfast pot pie" with egg and hashbrown. What made it really nice is Chuck bought for everyone who came today. You won't see that happen very often.

I propose that you would not have to buy everyone’s breakfast....just those who missed last week’s historic event. See ya there.

Tom, as I’m sure you know, time is a constant movement forward and once a moment passes it cannot be recaptured. As Einstein often said “when you miss a free breakfast it is proof that you can’t be in two different places at the same time”, relatively speaking that is.

Interesting theory...though Frederick Nietzsche's "eternal recurrence" counters that and suggests that you will in fact, repeat that moment/event again.

I looked up chain sizes and came across the table below. The chain on your Duke definitely looked wider than the one on my AT (530 vs. 525). Maybe it was just my weak eyes playing tricks on me.

Chain Pitch Width
520 15.88mm 6.35mm
525 15.88mm 7.85mm
530 15.88mm 9.53mm
532 15.88mm 9.53mm

I agree Jay. I think they were different sizes too. I got these data from a website that shows the basic statistics for bikes. I didn't believe them either, so I looked them up on the parts fiche and the sizes in my post were exactly right. Mysterious???

I will be there! Haven't been there in a while. You do know that Yale Street Grill isn't very far from "Snooze"??? Just thought you might want to know. See you in the morning.

Wow, no Tuesday breakfast this week?
Where have you been? I'm in Denver today and headed to Germany next Monday. Chuck is already in England. We will meet in about a week and a half, then spend about a month traveling. So, it's on someone else to call out breakfast for a while.

Well, you and Chuck were the main attractions, so guess it stands to reason that nobody else has taken the reigns. I know you fellers will have a great time over there, but not sure they will ever be the same again, lol. I'll be keeping an eye out for the reports :popcorn:

I’ll be there as quickly as I can but you will have to wait a while for me.
Trips going well. Karen leaves for Houston in the morning. I’ll head over to meet Joe the following day. Bike has done well and the weather has been great ever since Karen arrived. Hope you guys are doing well but I think you could use our weather the last 10 days. Upper 40’s at night and upper 60’s and sunny skies during the day.

Sorry I missed breakfast. For me, it was a short night. I lost 7 hours on the flight, so breakfast came quickly. I barely finished my Lasagna in a plastic container and they were rolling down the aisle with breakfast. A lavish layout of yogurt and a biscuit.
