Met these folks after a buddy recommended them. Only
problem, they ride at 0730 Saturday morning. Feh, but i
steeled myself and got to bed early Friday. Geez
the cruisers in Austin never get up this early; they
ride pretty slow too
I got there about 7 and there were about 20
bikes. The weather was great and the group
friendly. Didn't know a soul. I spotted about
8 bmws there
On the road before sun-up. What a concept.
We all departed in an orderly fashion and stayed
that way for about 5 minutes until a couple beemers
passed me in the left lane. I figured this was the fast
group so i joined right in.
The guys set a nice pace and our breakaway
group arrived in Blanco half an hour and 40
miles later. I was relieved after seeing most
were equipped with radar detectors
The omelette was tasty and the company enjoyable. A
cold front came through while we ate and shifted the
winds but it remained warm.
Most everyone took off except for the guy
leading the fast group, so we decided to do the willow
city loop north of Fredericksburg
The wind was howling by now, but the traffic on
the loop sparse. No flowers to fawn over this time of
So we fawned over the bikes instead
Spotted a GM concept car
I got to lead for a while. The GS sucks up the cattle
See? I can lead
But this was a better pic
I'm gonna have to start getting up early saturday.
By the time I made it home it was 2 pm, and got
the weekend off to a good start because it only got up
to 45 the next day. I guess some electric
clothes are in order too.
