Had a great ride yesterday. I started at 5:30am and headed off through deer country. I dared the critters to come out! They stayed in bed and didn't bother me. I passed by the dairy's at Stephenville--good grief they stink!! I took the short cuts on he "back roads" and only got lost twice--both in towns of less than 600!!!! I found speed ditches built into the roadway and thought I had bent my front wheel-twice!!.

I made it to the meeting and it was as fun as I expected. Great friends, good food and lots of fun.

On the way home, I had a bike get on my tail. We both made a turn onto a farm to market road. I had not straightened up when this guy, tattoos, sleeveless shirt and dew rag, came roaring by me, in the left tire track in my/our lane. It was double yellow in the middle of the road and entering a curve.What a moron!!

The ride home was almost uneventful. Other than a a convention of buzzards meeting on lunch in the ditch (4-5 tried to fly up and skeeer me), I made it home. Thanks all!!

more details to come, but : Oct 1st Eastland has an annual "RipFest" celebrating the legend of Old Rip- the famous horny toad. Big parade and festival. A BIG car and bike show, not compitition, just a chance to show your rig. Had about 50 bikes there last year. NO cost to put your bike in and all that do get lunch!! Last year most got a nice gift bag also. It is a hoot! At 5 the Eastland Fire Dept puts on a fish fry(all you can eat) featuring the largest fish fry trailer in Texas. They know how to cook some catfish. I hope Lots of my wing friends come to the fun!!! We will also ride the"Tail of the Toad!!
I am pretty sure my riding partners -jhughes, tommyboy, dan are coming along with big cat from Franklin Tn. Many more I am sure.
