Bummer, I'm due for an adventure ride of sorts. Unfortunately Saturday is booked with "ride 3 hours of the most boring stretch of I10" followed by "go back home."

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Oh man, I was just thinking we should plan a Texas 9'er meet-up. Brenham is probably pretty central. There are several good eateries in College Station too. Ritter's Frozen Custard in Katy also comes to mind. My first choice however, would be Yankee's, FM244 @ Hwy30 in Carlos. I'd love to see the faces of the harley crowd when they see a convergence of 919's. Actually there are usually all manor of motorcycle there from BMW to Guzzi. They serve a great burger and chicken fried steak. FM244, FM 3090 & FM149 are close by and quite entertaining.


Yankee's Tavern & Grill

That said, I work most Saturdays so we would need to plan it on a Sunday.

hmmm, I just may do that. It's something different. You said you'd ride both days? I'm going to try and drag alinosa out on Sunday. Maybe we'll head east instead of west.

The 1 track is a 'club' track (e.g. $350 membership for track days) short of driving to D/FW or Houston. The hill country is WNW of SAT, and is a nice ride. What line of work are you in?

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Ouch! I figured with Texas being mostly flat there would be more tracks to appease the riding population. Or are there just too many squids?

I'm entering the counseling field for state governments and met the Texas coordinator while in Baltimore. She was recruiting me aggressively. Might even get me a paid internship So we'll see what happens. Didn't realize I was so spoiled with all these tracks 3 hours or less from me.
