Pizza shack was great. A little crowded but we had no trouble getting in. I haven't been riding for the past couple weeks but I'm itching to start. How about you, are you getting out?

We just had dinner at Rana's, probably the best in the area. At least that's my humble opinion. I could do it again on Thursday. I may have a new toy to show and tell?

Great! A regular third grade show and tell. Honestly, Rana's is the best we have had in our time up here. We've been three times now. Had a great conversation with the owner tonight about quality, freshness and consistency. He says the right things and the food bares it out.

You guys enjoy where ever you go. I'll be layered up walking to work here in the frozen tunda aka Chiberia. Current wind chill -31 and that's warm. Not supposed to get above 0 until Thursday about the time you guys are sitting down to eat. :eek2::eek2::giveup::giveup:

Thanks Rob for posting the location. Being relatively new to Conroe, I figured EVERYONE knew where Rana's was.

You win Rick! I am not going to be able to compete with a litter of puppies. But, mine doesn't pee on the garage floor. At least I don't think it does.

As a retired plumber, the pee is OK with me. I see $$$. One has such a high Knucklehead quotient that it is hard to resist keeping her!
I had no idea that Rana's was there. It isn't exactly in a location to notice, when I go past there my eye is on my speedo, too easy to be over thru there. The menu looks great, esp. the veggie fajita plate. rh

Looks like you have a friend (or may be friends) for life. My daughter has pet insurance on her cats. It's a lot like people insurance but may be not as expensive? I don't know.

Laura and I actually found Rana's probably a year ago, while we were looking for a new "home" Mexican place. Then we visited Taqueria Jalisco. She likes it as well. But I have to say that she likes the ambiance of Rana's better. Last week someone posted a positive comment about Rana's on the Nextdoor website. I was surprised by how many positive responses it received. So, it set in motion another visit by her and me on Tuesday. There were only 2 other tables seated. So Mr Rana (I'm guessing that's his name) came and sat down at our table. We talked for a good while. He told us stories about how he has worked to keep his place clean (which I like), using only fresh ingredients (which I like), having a VERY specific recipe book that he expects his cooks to follow in detail and the need to remain constantly aware of his customers perceptions of his restaurant. He did make a point to say his is not the typical Tex/Mex cuisine, instead it's recipes his father brought from their area of Mexico.

For every time we have visited Rana's, I have not had a bad meal. Of course, as in all things, what people like is subject to their own taste. Rana's may not be your cup of tea, but it is at least worth a try.

It looks like it may rain today. If it does, I am going to try to replace a brake caliper on the Suburban and bring that instead of my new toy. Tony F, that's what we heard the other day when we went to drop of the stand.

Thursday night we were talking about the "Green" helmet. Here is what I was talking about. I would like to try one, but right now there isn't much choice. Klim Koroyd Helmet Seems like a there are quite a few bicycle helmets made with these Koroyd tubes, just not a lot of motorcycle helmets ... yet. I think because of the cost, (sounds like the material is pretty cheap), the protection and the venting it is a perfect solution for helmets.

Great evening to ride!!
I was thinking about it, but I had to wash my bike :-P

Seriously! I don't think I've cleaned my GS at all in the last 8 months and it REALLY needed it. Of course then it was sitting next to the KTM... :cool2:

I need to do some serious TLC on the KTM and I don't like working on a dirty bike.

I almost hate to take Daniel down any dirt roads tomorrow on the GS :-? Maybe if I go fast enough the dirt won't have time to stick to it!? :rider:
