2008 Pie Run III - Floyd's in Ingleside

I haven't put together the official total, but about 35-40 riders from Fort Worth, Waco, Austin, Houston, Laredo, and even Port Lavaca came together for eats, gabbing, gawking, and pie!

Since we are motelling only 1/8 mile away, I almost got back to the internet first 8^) , just not quite home yet. Some folks are staying over and plan to enjoy some sights.

Stories and pictures to follow...

:rider: :eat: :rider:

Thanks, Zed. It was good to meet you. Ya'll made it back pretty quickly!

I am about to go run errands & one of the things is a mouse - the stylus and touch pad on my wife's laptop is driving me crazy! :angryfire

Well, I'm full...:lol2: Steve was in a rush, they're headed up country and he wanted to get out of dodge I guess. Nice ride for an afternoon. I thought we'd get a little rain, maybe, but only a few sprinkles. I don't get out on the bike that often anymore, so it was a welcome break from the shop and things. Ran off without my tire repair kit, so I'm glad I didn't find any nails. :lol2:

Mmmm, I think I'm beginning to understand the beauty of chain drive motorcycles...:duck:

And I just got through bragging at lunch, how other than my first flaming episode, the bike has been trouble free. Lets see Final drive ignites at 11,000 miles. Now I think my tranny seal let go at 29,000.

Guess I was just not meant to ride the bike, after all, next week she will be two years old.

And to top it off. And I know you will not believe me, but I can not make this stuff up!
























































I PAID IT OFF LAST NIGHT!!!

I am at the same hotel that Kurt and his family are staying in. I have family coming down from Nacogdoches to pick me up and take me back to the woodlands. I have walked to the store(s) and purchased non-riding gear to lounge in and eat dinner in. As well as found me a bottle of adult grape juice and cheese to take back up to my room. After all I am moping around and I have always heard that whine and cheese go together :)

I want to thank Calgary Yogi {Graeme} for volunteering/offering to drive back down with his trailer from Houston tomorrow and get me. I don't know what to say, but thanks. Here is a guy that met me only a couple of times but is willing to drive 500 miles out of his way to help me. I sure do appreciate the offer and sincerly thank you for sticking with me until I got to the hotel and sorted out, but I am good now, enjoy your Sunday!

I thought that was you walking down the street and then I saw your bike parked next to Kurt's. I can see it at the moment and it still hasn't spontaneously combusted out in the parking lot.....yet....

Didn't you have a similar issue after paying a truck off? This just means you should trade them more often....like someone else. Then you never have to pay them off.......

We were riding along the beach road, her in the middle and me at the end, she hit a patch of sand, decelerated and the front end plowed and tucked. She high sided over the top at about 20 mph and ended up in a heap beside the bike. It took her a few seconds to pop up, but she immediately said she was OK. A few minutes spent righting the bike, assessing the damage (broken signal and pannier mounts) a few field repairs and she was back underway. I didn't have a camera, rats.

Yikes! :eek2:

I read that to Susan and she said "she'll be sore tomorrow". However, it is better to go down in sand than chip sealed asphault... :giveup:

Thanks for arranging the pie run Chuck! I talked to the owner of the restaurant briefly and he too is an avid biker.

I had to leave a little early before all of the TWT folks showed up. I did a 500 mile long-route back home. The overcast clouds really helped keep temperatures in the mid-70s.



Can't wait for the next pie & salad run :)

What time were you there? STScott, Susan, and I were riding back from Rockport and noticed a bike and rider there (in front) about 11:00 AM. I saw several bikes in back at about 12:00 before I was ready to make my grand arrival.

Actually, I inherited this Pie Run - WC Zimmerman has the 2008 season already setup so I'm just trying not to mess it up. A local, Phil (TX F2) kept Floyd's up to date. He also was doing nametags today - something that helped so folks could recognize who was who. Thanks, Phil! :clap:

I'm home and assume CaroleAnn is as well.....

We left Austin at 0800hrs and headed down through Kyle, then over to Lockhart, Luling, Gonzales, Cuero, Goliad, Refugio, Sinton and then Ingleside. Grabbed a few more courthouse pictures along the way as well. Skies were cool and a bit misty at first, then the closer we got to the coast, the warmer it got. This was Carole's first TWT Pie Run and I think she had a grand time.

The trip back was different in that we went back through Sinton, then to Beeville, Kenedy, ducked off at Karnes City to Stockdale, Seguin, San Marcos then Austin. A few more courthouse pics on this leg. The sun poked it's head in and out and we missed a few rain showers as the roads were still wet and we could see to our SE it was raining heavily. Got in about 1900hrs and 420ish for miles.


Chuck asked for pics, so here's some shots without the courthouse's...

Yep, I'm home, showered and settled in for the night. It was a great day, thanks Scott for an awesome ride. A small sprinkle going down and a itty bitty one coming home but other than the cool temps the day couldn't have been any better.

I started the day with no liner in my jacket but made Scott pull over in Lockhart so I could put it in and change gloves. Ahhh, much better now.

I have never been down to that area so completely enjoyed all the little excursions Scott took me on. I even got in on the courthouse pictures. I hope to have another chance to get down that way to see some of the sights.

Looking forward to more pie runs in my future.

Home and showered. I took off at 7:45 this morning and pulled back in the garage at 7:35. 537 miles verified by the gps.

I had a great time and enjoyed meeting the people I did. Pie was good too.

I'll post up a couple pics of my trip tomorrow.

I arrived safely back in Fort Worth after a 6 hour ride home. I made one quick stop in Waco to empty one tank, fill one tank, and switch out my vented jacket for a warmer one. I had 763 miles round trip including the 300 miles I rode yesterday after work.

My wake up view this morning in Victoria, cool and wet:

Duke, sorry to hear about your bike. After riding a BMW R1150RT in the Alps a few years ago I wanted one really bad. My ST hasn't been perfect but I am so glad I bought the Honda instead of the BMW.

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking to those of you I got to meet. I wimped out and took the Z as I have some pretty wicked "bail rash" from the ranch as well as a few bruises from catching a trailer to the face ( I think Chuck's pirate attack suggestion sounds cooler though), Food was good, company better.
I walked out with 5 pies for home :eek2: 2 of them(chocolate cream and cherry) went to my friends housewarming this evening, they didnt last that long, trust me:trust: . Im trying to get his dad into riding. Hes already looking at the MSF. My roundtrip was about 346 miles. Chuck, Phil, and Spirit of Wizzerman, ya'll did a dang good job setting this up.
Like I said it was great to meet all yall, thanks for a GREAT excuse to get out of town. Hopefully next time I can make it a little further North and not break myself so I can ride up.

I was hoping that 2-up picture would turn out! (thanks) We happened on Rich while we were looking for a place for Scott (STScott) to pick up a phone charger after breakfast at the Rockport Bakery :thumb: .

Looks good! Keep up the good work Chuck!!
Who is this guy? :-P

Hey, we missed the Pie Family! You flat disappeared for a while - glad you are back connected.

(more stories and pictures later - we are trying to get ready for the big trip home)

Yea...I left near noon...trying to fit the Three Sisters on the way back via Camp Wood. It ended up being 800 miles for the sake of the pie run :)

I am glad Becca is ok from her highside episode. I contemplated riding on the beach too, but then again fine light sand and heavy bikes don't mix too well.

Thanks Phil too!

I headed South on 59 to 288, then 521 to 35 into Ingleside. Most of the morning was hazy, but I didn't run into any rain. Riding along 521, I realized I hadn't taken a picture yet. Just as I was thinking that, I turn and look to my right. There was a cow that was in the mud up to its stomach. I thought it looked funny, so I turned around to grab a shot. By the time I got back, the big sucker had faught its way out and was running. :doh: But, as I slowed down, I saw about 15 things scramble into the water out of the corner of my eye. I look over and there is only one left... an aligator. They were all about 3 foot long. After taking a couple of shots and watching them for several minutes, I couldn't help but think where mama was. :eek2:



The roads were pretty straight...



but the aligators gave it some life. :clap:

This was the tough guy that wasn't afraid.





Next stop... Floyd's. :rider: :eat:



I arrived early for once. Once again, I enjoyed meeting everyone I did. Had a chicken fried steak and cherry pie. :eat: :yawn: No time for a nap though, I had to get home. I took a Northern route home, running FMs along 77 to 90, then back North on 59.

One of the several times I crossed the Colorado River for the day.


After gasing up in Hallettsville, I spotted what looked like a church. I went to go have a look and get a picture. It turned out to be the courthouse, I guess.



Running down 90, I saw some zebras at an exotics place. Had to get some pics. :mrgreen:



That was my day in a nutshell. :zen:

Was boppin' home to Brazoria one day in my old Dodge van on 521 just out of Wadsworth and came upon a gator stretched from one side of the road to the other. They used to plant a lot of rice there, not so much anymore, but he'd come out of the rice field and was sunning himself while a guy was out of his truck on the other lane kickin' at it!:eek2: I prepared to watch him get his leg bit off while I grabbed for the Ruger Security Six I always had handy in the van, but the gator just kinda moved off the road real slow. Guess he wasn't up to temperature, yet.:doh: :lol2:

Looks like most everyone had a good time. Sorry I missed this one but life is still a bit chaotic after the move. At least I can get my bike out of the garage now. It had been buried in. :lol2:

Squeaky - Sorry to hear about your get-off. I hope you're doing ok today.

I can confirm that mama was or used to be around that very spot on 521 as coming home one night a couple years ago I hit a gator, with my truck, stretched across the lane you had your bike parked in .

I always look to that side when coming home in the afternoon and evenings but never take the time to stop and look around...I'll have to stop there now just to take a look.

Thanks for the pic and insight...

Hey Zed, that's crazy stuff! Yeah, the little ones look like they they have made it through and can fend for themselves now. The funny part to me is that I would have just zoomed by there and not noticed anything if it wasn't for that cow in the mud. :mrgreen:

Hello Zed, Zach,Wendy & Jack & TWT riders everywhere:
Glad to hear everyone got home ok... what a great day. Truly enjoyed meeting all the forum folks, and looking forward to the next run.
Mega kudos to the PMIT (Chuck) for a first class job of organizing the affair. Hope all the bumps & bruises and final drives heal soon.

Hey, Jack, it was fun riding with the Pt Lavaca - Palacios Axis of Evil Pie Masticators.

Cheers,
steve

Thanks for the great ride down to all that rode from Sugarland. It was nice to meet you all as this was my first and not last Pie Run. Had an uneventful ride back. Hope the camping on the beach went well. I made a quick sto at the USS Lexington. Next time I will take the tour.

Great ride and better company! :clap:

After lunch, Keith and I rode up to the Texas Mile event for a few hours to see some scary fast cars and cycles!!! The bikes were regularly reaching speeds of 180+ and a couple of cars (Ford Gt's) broke 200.

Not certain but I think we saw a familair adventure rider on a KTM testing his top-end witts!! I didn't hear the official speed announcement...

Looking forward to next run!
