North TX - Ride to the Indian Bridge - Nov 18
« on: November 05, 2017, 05:47:08 pm »
Looking at the calendar, there are not many weekend days left in the year with the holidays approaching.

So, weather permitting, lets ride to the 'Indian Bridge' near Illinois Bend in Montague County.

Meet for breakfast at the Dove Creek Café in Roanoke. Then north through Justin, Ponder, Forestburg, St.Jo and down to the Red River.

Lunch for those still hungry at Rohmers in Muenster afterward.

Let me know any interest.

Rev, we should be done with the ride around 3. You can make the ride down to the coast after and arrive around midnight. We'll all be humming the theme music to Smokey and the Bandit to help you get there. Lol

I think I'll pencil in for this one, too. Sounds good. My daughter and I rode to Muenster a couple of years ago. Rohmer's was closed. I don't remember why. We had lunch at Doc's Bar and Grill and it was great. They had the best carrot cake I've ever had at a restaurant.

Well, turns out I had a prior commitment and had forgotten about it.  I won;t be making the trip for sure now.    :??:

Had to go out and get some new boots for Saturday.



Ripped the sole loose on a turn in Big Bend from the toe  :motonoises:, hey.....they were only 11 years old.

Those look nice, Craig, but how do you break them in? I have a pair of Alpinestars Tech 7 boots and they're as stiff as steel with no bend at the ankle unless I put most of my weight on them. They're like wearing casts! How do you shift gears or use the foot brake while wearing casts? I appreciate any tips you can give me.

When I initially tried to break these things in, it was while I was still recovering from my crash three years ago, so I didn't have full use of my right leg then.

 I walked in the store with them, they will be OK and with my smaller stature, it is easier to flex them in my riding position.

Sidis overall are pretty stiff in the ankles, but that is a good feature.  The soles are a bit easier to flex than the ankles, but no problem for shifting and walking isn't bad either.  After Big Bend I'm due a new set too.  These are pretty sporty looking Craig... a perfect fit for the Greenman I'd say.   :motonoises: :great:

I am hoping that the pressure gradient on the front Saturday is not too great, below Wind Advisory Criteria from the NWS we are IN, if the NWS sends a Wind Advisory for Saturday Morning, then Pamela and I are likely OUT.

There's a NWS wind advisory from 7am to 3pm Saturday, does this mean the ride is cancelled?

That would be up to the Event Host, Bob.

My wife does not like to ride in high crosswinds unless it is absolutely the way to get home from a trip.

Pamela and I are out, winds slacken off on Sunday with decent temps after warming up a little.

I rode for a couple of hours today and it was very windy. It's not fun to ride in conditions like that. Tomorrow's winds are supposed to be 20 to 30 MPH with gusts up to 40 MPH. No thanks. I'll be staying home tomorrow.
