This is a annual event for the LSBMW club and one that I look forward to every year. I got up early and headed out to the start off point, I wanted to fuel up and drink a cup of coffee before hitting the road. I rolled up around 7:10 and Bo was already there with a few other people. I got my coffee and watched as a number of bikes pulled into the lot.
Everyone just hung out and kicked some tires while awaiting for their group to suit up and take off. It looked like 4 groups took off with anywhere between 5-8 bikes. Rob and I hung out and took off to do our own route after everyone left. Bo was great at directing traffic.
Rob and I did a longer route than the rest of the groups. We headed over thru N Texas and Carpenters Bluff Bridge. We stopped at the bridge and took some pics before heading over to the cookout. We did some dual sport riding as I got us on a nice 4 mile stretch of dirt. After fighting off the local wildlife (two dogs that wanted a Jerry and Rob snack. haha) we made our way to Sulphur. The gang was already there. A nice group of bikes were on hand.
We got there just in time to get a burger right off the grill. The food is always good, but the socializing is always the highpoint of the day. Looked like a good group attended. We enjoyed the food and then walked around and chatted with everyone while checking out all of the bikes. As always it was a great time and fun was had by all.
It was getting warm, so Rob and I decided to slab home and get back to the metromess as quickly as possible. After a couple of hours of playing "lets kill the BALD motorcycle guy in the bright jacket" on I-35, I finally made it home. I logged just over 315 miles. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday. I do have one question.. when will the HEAT finally go away.. it was HOT this afternoon.
Till next time.. ride safe!
