Larry, I've looked up the Munster house myself online. You have to contact them to get a private tour. Its 30 or 40 bucks per adult with a minimum of 4. I'm hoping later this year my wife and I can get some friends together to go check it out.

They used to do an open house once a year, but I think they've stopped doing that. I can't remember since I looked it up months ago.

Currently I don't have anything planned. Last time we met in Red Oak, went over to Ennis then south. we went between 34 and 22 from the east headed back to the west and ended in Italy.

I'd like to try something new this time, but I don't want to be out riding past 9. By 9 AM I'd like to be headed back home as it will take about 30 minutes or more depending one what and where we go. That is if anyone has a route to suggest.

If not, I'll just stay by the house with my little Yamaha. See if I can get it inspected/registered before the weekend so I can really test it out. So far its only been ran for about 10 minutes.

I may be going north in the morning if I can get up and going early enough. Need to check front tire. Got a little squirrelly on ride home from ice cream tonight. Maybe we can later. I will be out of pocket for the next 3 to 4 weekends. :(

Anyone up for 7/28? I'm not too concerned with riding as much as finding a good breakfast place to meet.

I'm thinking Montes Breakfast Burritos in Hillsboro. Maybe aim for a 7:30 breakfast and ride by 8:15 or so?

I'm out for this weekend. But I'll point out there is a Pie Run this Saturday. If catfish appeals to you, you might check that out.

ya. I just realized the pie run in Whiteboro was this weekend. Doubt I'll make that though.

After all the rain the last couple of days, I stumbled upon a dangerous low water crossing in my area:

Anyone got plans for 9/1/18? I'm hoping to get back on some gravel this weekend.

If not, I may just go run around Friday morning after work.

We're heading out to Santa Fe, NM to enjoy the cooler weather. Please sweat for me, would you? :lol2:

And be safe out there too.

That looks like some good riding. And a lot of interesting things along the way.

Better call Saul on that last pic. ;-)



Did you guys ride all the way out or trailer to some point.


Rod and I trailered out to Santa Fe on Friday and I returned with the trailer on Tuesday. Rod took some extra days and rode back.

Is the first picture Albuquerque below? Looks familiar.

It's been awhile since last get-together and cooler weather is here in North Texas, anyone up for a meetup and ride?

Any suggestions?

My wife will be out of town all week & I'll be on caregiver duty. Can't be gone from the house more than an hour or so. You guys go ahead & go. I should be available after Thanksgiving week.

Didn't I read something about the BBQ place down in Cresson that got kicked out of their building, reopening in Cresson again? That might be a bit far to the SW, but didn't know if any of you had heard anything?

Yup ... reopened 11/6.

Short distance behind the old location, towards the track.

How about BBQ on the Brazos in Cresson Sat 17th? Noon'ish?

I'll probably map out backroads from south of Grand Prairie and across.

I'll be on my CB1100 so will be planning my route with appropriate roads in mind.

I'm in. Work's been crazy, the bike had been lonely. It's time to ride.

I'm going to hit a few backroads on the way to Cresson. It's about 122 miles, all paved, mostly FMs and CRs, starting in Alvarado. If anyone wants to join hit me up for details.

You're killin' me, Smalls.

Want to throw that up on the FB page just in case any of the non-TWT locals want to join you?
