Thanks to all who helped with my flat. I made it home without incident. When I stopped to put in more air at Canton . . . the chuck wouldn't bend enough to get on the valve stem. But everything felt rock steady, so we slabbed it back into the MetroMess. I felt it start to get a little squishy as I turned onto Denton Hwy. (about two miles from the house). Thanks also to Tim and Chuck and whoever else it was who escorted me. Who was the other one, Chuck? Sorry you guys gave up your nice back roads for boring I-30. Looks like I'll be spooning on a new tire soon.

I rolled in around 3:00 and was glad to get home..
It was nice in the morning, but hot returning home. If my GPS had not got lost, I would have been home sooner.:rofl:

All in all, a good ride, and I got to meet some people and see some places I had not seen before. Not a bad day for late in July..:sun:

I do wish the Shed had put on some extra waitstaff. One person taking care of the back room was not enough..

Here are a few snaps I took:

Redpill (Danny). I think he had just ingested a quart of brake fluid.


Some serious pie eating going on here.


Scott hawking TWT stickers.


Chuck.


Disclaimer: Not a real Ferrari.


Robin in pink shirt.


Anybody know who the DL1000 belongs to?


Minor setback to Redpill's rear tire, courtesy of an ill-advised detour.

I had a blast riding with Kurt up and back. Always good to see old friends and meet new ones too. Reeces pie was worth the 470 miles. :eat: That 103*F extended to South Austin as well.

RedPill glad my little pump got enough air into you tire to get you home.

Mike split from Robin and I after lunch and headed back to Richardson. Robin and I went south down through Jacksonville, Rusk, and Palestine before turning back toward Dallas. In other words one of our normal round about 240 mile routes to go 100 miles :rider:.

I enjoyed meeting with all you folks including a few new ones that I hadn't met and of course I enjoyed the Buttermilk pie.

His name was Charles but I forgot his screen name.

Um, Daniel, I think it was I-20 that we were on... :roll:
Very glad you made it home without further mishap. :zen:

Charles was wanting to get to 360 and I wanted to just blitz home, so that worked out just fine.

My thermometer (which I can't read without getting off the bike) read 105 when I rolled onto the patio at home... :giveup:

The ride TO Edom was cooler and more pleasant. We started with 5 riders in Arlington, picked up 4 more in Ennis and one more along the way (prior to Ennis I think).

First time to meet Charles, I hope he replies so I can remember his screen name! :doh:

Overall a great day in July in Texas! :sun:

I was one of the 4 ya'll picked up in Ennis, I believe..
Hot is a good word for the return trip, was dehydrated when I got home.
I need to get moved into my new house soon.. Everything is packed up including my Camel Back.

Glad to have had the time and bike running to make the trip again.
Good to see the familiar faces and meet some new ones.

We found Bob and company on the ride back out to Ennis, no pics, but they were hanging around waiting on a trailer.
I will let hiim fill the rest in. ;-)


Pics later

big turn out on a hot day, my new little baby girl was wondering what I was doing up so early.


we got there pretty early and there was already a pretty good crowd already I got back outside after having a slice of secret "not on the list" peanut butter pie (good to be pie master! :mrgreen:) to get a bike count



many bikes that were there when I went inside had already left but I don't know if they were part of our gang or not. I still managed to count 90 bikes including one exotic rare Yamaha GTS1000!

if you don't know about this bike you need to google it and read up on it, introduced here in the states in 1993 and only sold here two years (bad economy and a high price killed it) it was a technological showcase of what Yamaha could do, and the fork less front suspension is still to this day more advanced than anything on the road.

there was also a trick German road rocket K1600GT hiding out back.


it was great seeing everybody especially Scott's return to the pie run Circuit!

unfortunately Beemer Bob is still not on talking terms with his ill tempered Russian mistress :lol2:

I took a nice 2 hour ride at 0630 out to Llano and back. I just find no enjoyment riding when it gets over 90 degrees. I guess people up north park their bike a few months in the winter, I just ride in the AM in the summer...I will get back on the pie runs in the fall....

Tim, that is interesting, several weeks age a co-worker sent me a cell phone picture of a yellow and black strom in traffic in Arlington. The thought it was me. Must have been your friend.

Wow, thanks to other photographers for publishing all sides of me. To Robin, for my face and camera. To Ninjette, for so nicely capturing my bald spot. :mrgreen:

Just ordered another Avon Venom. After getting the tire off, it's pretty clear to me that I damaged it on a pothole. There's a nice little vertical split just at the edge of the tread section. Clearly not a defect, at least to my eye.

As IBM always loved to say in every system message, "Probable use error." Redpill & I got a bit sidetracked on the way to Edom and ended up way north of our course. My GPS showed a road back to the route, so we took it. Technically, it was a paved road. In actuality, it was a five-mile continuous series of potholes, connected by wisps of pavement. Couldn't have been good for a cruiser tire.

Reminds of an old joke.


How do you make a fishing net?


Find a bunch of holes and sew them together. ;)

Weldone Robin, I really enjoyed the compulation :clap:
It's nice to see myself in a picture, instead of taking all the pictures lol.


Bob, the pie was worth it regardless of the time you ate it wasn't it?
We passed the trailer in tow shortly after leaving ya'll.


See ya'll on the next one hopefully :eat: :rider: :trust:

Now I see why you bring that hammock of yours. Good for some laughs. Curious how you slept the whole way home though. :eek:
