Saturday, March 24 Morning ride!

OK... here's a proposed route for Saturday, at this point, it starts and stops at Jitters in Atascocita. KSU 0800.

The route out runs by Flying J at 242 and 59, so a stop there to pick up riders is no problem. we could plan on leaving there at 0900.

the route is about 235 miles and less than 5 hours road time. If you're interested and we need to do some tweaks to make it all work better, let me know. On the other hand, if it's another solo ride, here's where I'll be going!

Lets get out and ride!

how about an early ride... meet up for breakfast at your diner in Dayton... back home shortly after noon?

Breakfast and a ride, Saturday, 4/28

Tentative plan is

7:30 meet up at the Texas Country Kitchen for breakfast in Dayton.

a ~4:15 loop around 942, 62, 242, 223, etc., and back down to Dayton. Should get back to Dayton pretty close to noon.

I'm thinking an earlier ride, so I can get back home in time for other commitments...

Takers? Suggestions?

Great ride today... a good breakfast, perfect weather, good roads, and no issues. We didn't hit any dogs, vultures, or even the wild hogs!

The intercom even worked well, other than my GPS woman's interuptions... it's always good to share a ride with a good riding partner... All good! 20180428_111033.jpg

Mighty fine weather and routing by Blue Flash today. It was a pleasure and I hope the next ride isn’t as long-awaited as this one was. I worked a demo hammer for the remainder of the day, so off to bed I go. See you guys on the next one.

Just got home... I'm thinking, a coffee at jitters at aerobic and west lake houston pkwy in atascocita, then an "around the lake" route through cleveland, with a possible meet up at either flying j or loves in cleveland.

Post up if you're in and we'll finalize!

OK... I haven't done 149 and 3090 in awhile. I think that's the route for today. should be out of the house between 8 and 830.. quick run by jitters, then north... I'll do a run through at flying j, just in case...

240 miles, probably about 5 hours... should be home in Atascocita around 2 or 3...

Great day for riding, guys!!!

Tomorrow looks a bit warm, but dry. Who needs a ride? Not dure where to go. Who needs seat time??? Where do we want to go?

Construction on 149 and 3090 is done. Could do that...

Or... a ride up around Colmesneil?

Another "around the lake" run?

Other suggestions? Post up, let's ride!

Man I sure need to ride, but the stars just haven't lined up right for me this year, hopefully within the next few weeks I can get back to riding.

How about 7 am or so at Donald's Donuts, just west of Sonic on FM 1960 in Huffman? KSU at or before 0800 to avoid some of the heat...

I'll get a route nailed down this evening.

No Ride for me this weekend!

Bummer!

I got up this morning to go get my safety inspection done before the afternoon rains hit that the weather guessers promised... Got that done...

Unfortunately, on the ride back, I ran over something in the road. I heard something clank, but didn't see it... must have been looking elsewhere. As I got closer to home, the bike was turning funny, and sure enough, a flat rear tire!

I guess it's close to time for a new set anyway, but I had a few miles left... dang it! no riding until the new shoes come in and I can get them on.

I guess if you gotta hit something it's better to do it close to home, I was checking all week hoping there was going to be a ride but turns out I could not of made it anyway. On a more positive note I finally got around to ordering new boots, pants, and jacket , looking forward to riding again.:rider:

First, if you're looking for a ride... post up and that will let me know that we need to get something together. it seems like the participation has been pretty slim lately, so I haven't been jumping in with rides...

I'll be glad to set up rides if we have interest.. post up!

Now, on the tires and gear issue... took a ride down to Cycle Gear and picked up a new set of tires. They should go on tomorrow... My plan was to find new gear to replace my worn stuff, and then I found I can't replace my TourMaster stuff for under $400... whew!

So... I'm trying the Bilt stuff from Cycle Gear now. We'll see how that works out. Spent a lot less money there than I would have originally. New jacket, pants, and even went for a Frog Togg rainsuit... we'll see how that all works!

I'll be riding soon!

Not sure. Thibodeauxjj is in Dayton, you're in Spring, right?

Meet at Buster's in New Caney? About 4 hours, some version of the "around the lake routes?

Or... we could do a 149 out to 3090 loop...

What sounds good, guys?

As of right now I'm uncertain if I'll make it, I've had a stomach bug all week and thought I was on the down side of it until this morning. I will post up later tonite and let you know :doh:
