A Report from Central Texas

Recommended Posts

The past weekend saw the Central Texas Fall Ride. Limecreek was the organizer. Thanks Brother Lime! The weather was fantastic, as was the company! I found a little time to shoot some pictures inbetween shooting the bull.

 

What's that in my rear case?

It's an apple pie I offered as my contribution to dinner at the Whip's. It made it intact.

This handsome bovine was hanging out near La Gloria.

Quite an impressive set of horns.

On the way to Whip's I managed to ride the Three Sisters or the Twisted Sisters: FM 337, FM 335, and FM 336. These roads are well-known for their twists and turns and beautiful views.

Mrs. Whip has the Halloween spirit.

Billy and Eric had already arrived.

After some relaxing and catching up with friends, Whip got busy cooking the steaks.

Eric was all smiles, Brad took a picture, and the dogs hoped we'd drop a steak or two.

We then enjoyed a wonderful meal with the Whips. During that meal Whip announce that it was a very special day...He had married the lovely Mrs. Whip sixteen years ago that day!

 

 

Saturday morning we were off early to meet up with the rest of the group, which had stayed in Fredrickburg. On the way there we stopped for fuel. I was taking no chances this time. I made sure Billy had paid for his gas.

We certainly didn't want a repeat of this!!!

 

 

We met up the main group, formed smaller groups, and headed out. Mark, Billy, Eric, Whip, and I went toward Enchanted Rock. Billy and Eric entered the park, but we thought they'd be right back out, so we waited. Mark took off, and eventually Whip and I too, had to give up and leave if we were to make lunch in Vanderpool.

We made it, a bit late, to the Lone Star Motorcycle Museum in Vanderpool for lunch with the gang. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to take any pictures until we were leaving, and everyone was already gone.

This proves I'm not the only rider who's a bag of wind.

Billy and Eric had found their way out of Enchanted Rock and back to the Whips'. Billy was given the task of making popcorn.

Mrs. Whip gave her approval of the final product.

After a fine dinner of hotdogs and sausages over and open fire, we sat down to relax and enjoy each other's company. All in all a perfect weekend.

You seem to be making quite a habit of memorializing parking lots after all the BMWST'rs have departed. :grin:

 

That bovine of yours looks like it got it's horns from a water buffalo!

 

Glad you all had a good time.

Eddd,

 

Great pics as always. I have a few more to contribute, but they don't hold a candle to yours.

 

 

 

As Eddd, mentioned all except those who went AWOL visited the Lone Star Motorcycle Museum.

On Sunday, I decided to head through Luckenbach as I had heard much about this little town but had never had the opportunity to see it.

I was there too early in the morning to find the normal cruiser crowd. The only other bike in the lot was a shiny LT - too shiny to be one from our group. I think the rider was a bit chicken in the twisties.

Seriosly, this chicken liked the look of that bird in the chrome - a fine looking specimin.

Can't explain it, but I liked it. Boots and boots and boots.

We all concluded that there must be some election taking place sometime, cause we saw a few of these.

It was great to see old friends and meet new ones. Special thanks to Limecreek for hosting this event and to Whip and Louise for sharing their anniversary and for their generous hospitality.
