OH YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH......this ride was SPECTACULAR!!!!!!!!! We headed out to meet up with the Pie Goddess....we all know who that is and for those of you who don't.....DUHHHHHHHHHHH...Mer and her Son Andrew.....(what a sweetie).....we were suppose to meet them at the Exxon at Hwy 71 and Hamilton Pool Road...where we could gas up...get our meet and greet hugs and gab alittle. We were nervous because we passed on of those REALLY Really FAST Silver bikes down the road apiece and didn't know if we missed her.....but alas....they pulled in and the fun was to begin......

and it amazes me that some people have to deface a historical site just for the fun of it......they placed a grate over the spot due to the longgggggggggggggggggg drop...protection for the public and someone decided that these large rocks should be there too....amazing....

then it was time for the professional photographers to get some pic's of the site....can't wait to see those....go Mer....go Andrew....go Greg!!!!!!

After lunch we headed out in our own directions .....daydreaming....I know I was....of the fabulous day....knowing that this will definitely be the first of many more to come.......

at the end of the day....I got to ride home in a rain storm that lasted the last 50 miles of my ride but hey....it was my first and during it....I got the confidence to know that Bea and I could.....COULD achieve it all.....got a chuckle out of all the bikes that the gas stations...and I mean plural....that were pulled under the roof's so they wouldn't get wet and the riders huddled up by the building....did they think they would melt....LOL...I just waved and continued on my way home with the biggest grin on my face for a GREAT day and another achievement made with my bestest friend BEA!!!!!
Man life is good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is Andrew still riding that XT? I was surprised not to see Randy's VTX in there anywhere.
Hey Sleepy....what's up? You heard from Wabbit lately? I haven't seen him around anywhere in awhile.

Yep...Andrew is still riding that XT. He really wanted an upgrade for awhile but decided with 75-80 mpg he was fine with it for awhile. He was having a blast on all the dirt and gravel roads us cruisers were struggling on. LOL

Randy didn't go on this trip (he stayed home with our daughter) but yes he did just get a Goldwing a few months ago. He's ready to ride long and far...We're heading up to "The Parkway NEXT weekend" I still can't get used to seeing him on that HUGE thing though!

We had a GREAT time on this trip though....the Hill Country folks sure know how to plan a GREAT ride!!:clap: :clap:
