This has become a regular weekly ride (weather permitting). Locations change each week and is decided by a loose group consensus. Check the thread weekly for current location and time (generally 11:00am).

Testing the waters for a weekly bbq lunch meetup. I see a few rides like this that seem successful. The day doesn't matter to me, I think the same day would work best so plans could be made once it started. Stay in the general north of Houston, east of Bryan, 1/2 way to Dallas piney woods area. There's nice FM roads and for the adventure crowd all kinds of dirt roads if that calls your name.

Let me know if there is some interest and what day and I'll post a ride and see what happens. Would love to do this weekly/bi-weekly.

Dmux, Jfink, SilveBullet others?

Doc's BBQ, 1277 E. loop, Crockett, Tx
Feb. 5th at noon. About 50 miles west of Nacogdoches/Lufkin, on either Hwy 7 or 21.

I'd be interested. I live in Cypress, so it wouldn't always be the closest, but I'm off work Friday and Saturday and would enjoy the ride. Friday would be the better day I think.

So how soon are you looking to start this up? With a little notice I'll be up for just about anytime the weather isn't terrible. And my preference will lean towards dirt roads, or at least small paved ones, if roads are insisted upon!

Just for grins, extended forecast looks good for Friday, Feb. 5th. If this takes off we can move the destination around, but how about:

Doc's BBQ, 1277 E. loop, Crockett, Tx.. East side of town next to Whataburger.
As far as a ride, I know routes up there but this isn't an organized ride on my part. Obviously we can group up and do whatever.

Anyone interested in joining me, come on out. We can discuss locations and zero in on a day.

I'm in. My schedule just changed last week giving me my weekday flexibility back. So basically any day of the week works for me now with a days notice.


Interested as well...off every Thur-Fri and like a little dirt :)
Swing by Atascocita early and we'll take the scenic route up there hitting some mild dirt on the way. After lunch more to follow. I know you need some fun miles on that new 1190, commuting to work doesn't count. Lol

Yes I'm riding the Tenere. Mild dirt = Forestry Service Rds, gravel/dirt County Rds, sometimes with small light patches of sand and mud depending on the weather. Nasty mud and deep sand I turn around on the big bike if I have a choice.

Sounds like I'll have to meet y'all for that ride up. Atascocita isn't exactly close to me, but it sounds like you know a way to go that will be enjoyable!

Also, Woodsguy, what time were you shooting for everyone to meet up out there?

We could arrange a meet up spot on the way, nno need for you to ride south first. PM me where you are coming from and we can work out a time and location.

Hey! That's what's known as Kodak Moment and you shouldn't worry; these guys will lift the bike off you just as soon as the pics have been taken :photo:, and posted. :rofl:

Hey, that's near Huddle House :eat: and likely "The Most Interesting Manager in Captivity." :mrgreen:

Hint: Don't mess with her; OP knows what I'm talking about. :trust: :lol2:

This seems like it's going to be a good time. I've got carb tuning parts in the mail that should be in by the end of this week and now I have the perfect excuse to put on my new Shinko 244's! Looking forward to this one!

Hey Rob,
Just saw this thread. I'm always game for a ride & some food. I just don't frequent threads enough to keep up but I can work on that.
BTW thanks for the Trinity river bottom tour the other day, it was a great time. I also met JFink at Yankees the other day.

The 5th sounds good to me.

I don't know how long SilverBullet's route up there is, but noon would be better I think. I work til 10pm on Thursday, and not getting before the crack of dawn would be nice!

As a side note, I work 2-10pm as a normal shift, so this will always be the case for me. It's also why I can't go to any of the bike night meets.
