Reporting from Texas

Hi there, just a quick note. I am having a greate time in Texas, The weather has been gooood I got to meet deputy5211 and got to see the reck bike that he has been undressing and his gold new purchace. He is helping me installing the HID and Moto Lights on Monday and we did the oil change today. For lunch we had good Burgers in this little joint that were out of this world. I just got a camara but I have to wait untill I get home to post some photos. Have I untill Wednesday and will drive another 2000 miles back home. I am going to try to go through a different rout this time as weather lets me. Maybe Kansas, St L, Indianapolis, Chicago, bufalo and thought MA, VT,NH and Maine. I am looking forward for our ride in June
Will keep in contact Monday I might get to meet more LTers from Texas, after fixing we might get to ride

Way to go, Gauthama! But you know, with the folks in the NE region, you probably did not need to ride to Texas for a tech session!

Playing Frisbee might be a good supplement to my physical therapy.

I should be home from that by 1030, if you want to plan on meeting around then, you'll also miss the horrid traffic on SH121 around Frisco, The Colony, and Lewisville.

Ok, I have been back in Maine for a few weeks now, sorry I did not report and posted pictures but I have been real busy at work and had a real bad case of flue. In the way back I was riding with good weather. I made it almost to Indianapolis in one day from Dallas, 850 or so milles. Second day to Albany NY and the therd made it home. I had such a good time in my trip but if I have to do it again, mayby later in the year, June perhaps but no in April I have some pictures from the good group of Dallas, will try to post them here, I am just learning to do that [IMG][/IMG]

The fish was great, as was the company. But. . . let's not exaggerate too much, OK? The Sequoia doesn't go quite that fast, even downhill with the wind at it's back. I don't recall going over the posted limit. With the windows open and the wind rushing through, it sounded a lot faster though.
