Necron99    arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!   >:(


Dalroo, don't sweat the trailer. (I will also be trailering)

They will abuse us when we arrive. " They always do".

Just smile, reach in the cooler in your VEHICLE, and get out a cold beer.
Then,,, casually mention that they can have one,,,,  after they SHUT UP and  help you unload.   ;)

Besides,,, they normally cry when we leave to go home, and they have a long ride home. (and sometimes,, it's raining).

Rev, (before you say something about me trailering) hush up and work on your bike!!   :P

Ride safe, Ted

Nelcrow???  Necron99, you have to forgive him.  I think Ted's been in the potato squeezins again. We more sober folks will miss you too.

Shiner Bock only please.  None of that sissy stuff Ted drinks.

Only cry to leave good friends behind.  Well, I cry that Ted doesn't get to enjoy the rain too.

TRAILER   equals

I am out, unfortunately.

Hmmm..that is disappointing...I was hoping for a demo of the two finger barefoot centerstand thingy. I also wanted to see
the steel insert you obviously have imbedded in the ball of your right foot. Maybe at the National?


They will abuse us when we arrive. " They always do".

Heh heh heh... >:D  sharpening the abuse tools now, except for the ones that are purposely left dull for improved pain effectiveness.
meowwwww. Who's bringing the Puss-'n'-Boots chili for those that trailer?   :nananana:

Gee, you guys (ie: ya'll) are having fun!!   :)

Why is his excuse better than my excuse. I have to be at work at 6:00 AM on Monday myself?   :great:
That's ok, I have MORE excuses...

Trailer explained;

#1) If the wife goes, she will not ride the bike to the event.
    If the wife doesn't go,, I don't get to go.

2) I've rode a jillion miles on highways to get somewhere.
    Discovered that I prefer to ride twisties.

3) Don't need to prove I can do ride boring miles to get somewhere. I've already done it.

4) I like to trailer to a location in comfort, enjoy the twisties, and then trailer home in comfort.

5) I like to trailer..  (and it gives you guys something to pick on me about)

5) I hafta  take extra tools and parts to repair Rev's bike.  :nananana:

6) I'm a sissy....

Ride safe, Ted

His excuse is better cuz it's not YOUR excuse.  When you use it, it's different.   :lol_hitting:


He gets a Mulligan, you get a mill-again... and we're gonna run you through it.

Just don't stand too close to Ted when has a drink of water, with excuse number 1  he's so hen pecked that you are likely to get a shower when he drinks some water!  :))

Maybe we should rename OtP to ON TRAILER PERMANENTLY! :s_laugh:

HA! I don't know if mine is a good excuse, but it is an excuse. I could have just as easily gone with my mangina gets cold!

Truth be told, in all of my years going on long rides, this will be 2nd time I have trailered a motorcycle. The first was a HD breakdown and had to get trailered home. The second was behind my motorhome to/from Sturgis for the Rally.

And what is scary, both of those times I broke something (else) on the bike. The first time I cut a wire when strapping the bike down and it caused a short in the headlight. The second time I bottomed my Ultra Classic out on the ramp and sheered an oil line which leaked all over the trailer and blew all over the back of the motorhome for the 20 hour drive home.

I'm pulling a purpose built trailer to Wildflower, so hopefully I can avoid any damage to my Connie.

THAT"S A TERRIBLE STORY DALROO!  Breaking the bike on the trailer. OUCH!

At least all I do is crash every third year (this isn't that year again thank goodness).   :rotflmao:

Looks like I am about to share in the abuse. I am going to trailer down this time for the first time ever. I am going to bring my wife with me so she doesn't get in any more trouble. Last year on my way home from the National as I was leaving Mt Rushmore I got a call that she had been taken to the hospital. She got well but I am tired of worrying so I will bring her along.
Fred put another plate on for Saturday night.

Fred Harmon knocks the ball out of the park on weather! :great:

Looks like for DFW riders to RIR  will be on the start of ridging across the state from the north to the south.

Hunt Texas

Friday - 50 to 81 - Sunny
Saturday 49 to 75 - Cloudy
Sunday 49 to 73 - Sunny

So far the weather looks like it will hold through Sunday evening with a sunny ride back to DFW! ;D

Looks like I will probably be riding up with Fred and Dan from H-town.  I'll pick up with them around Altair and we'll rip up that a way.  I don't know if Hub will join us for anything this year again.  He's pretty fickle and hard to pin down.  He says, "Well, I might... you never know."  I say, "DUH!"

I suspect we won't see him.  But I'm looking forward to abusing Ted (and now ~shock~ Butch!?!?!).  It's a crazy world we live in.   :nananana:

Well, I have been doing my best to co-ordinate riding up from Corpus Christi together with Mo, but I need to ride up on Friday and he and his better half cannot get away until Saturday. I am staying in Pipe Creek with friends in order to have the best of both worlds. I am certainly looking forward to meeting some of the fine folks responsible for my ConAddictSyndrome. Guess I will see everyone on Saturday

Hey Air Monger,
I REALLY do advise ya to stay at the River Inn Resort with the rest of us.  Here's the deal.  Saturday night we'll have the big feed and lie swapping, beer drinking, Margarita hoisting, Wine Box draining event.  It's the best part of the whole deal (except for the riding and wrenching and eating and ... well, you get the idea. It's all good).  But where the resort is located is dead center of the Texas Deer Crossing Central Headquarters.  It's a good idea to NOT try to ride from there to Pipe Creek after about 6:00 or 7:00PM.  The entire way is just deer advisory warning territory.  I lived in Kerrpatch for 20 years and nailed a few of em (between the missus and me we killed or struck 17 and I got 4 of those with Connies).  and had plenty of other near misses.  Once my son and were riding on highway 27 between Ingram and Kerrville and we ran through an entire herd of maybe 20 axis zipping across the road in front, in back, all around us.  Somehow they all missed us.  It happened so fast I barely got the clutch pulled in before it was over.  We then proceeded straight home.  I'm just sayin'.

Thanks for the heads up Rev, I will play it by ear or, antler if you will. Both of my sons lived in Ingram (one in Hunt on occasion and the other in Edna) until recently so I am familiar with the animal count. I know I will be at Pipe Creek for Friday night. I always bring a bed roll for these situations anyway, never know who's pool table you might end up sleeping on huh?

Sure. No worries. You've got my number.  Of course, I'll be riding quite a bit on Friday so I NEVER hear or even feel my phone then without my Autocom (which is on another bike).

Won't be trailering, but if I can get a half gallon (or two) of tequila, some triple sec, my blender, some ingredients, and 100 lbs. of ice in one of the saddlebags it'll happen.

EDIT TO ADD:
I must add that Margaritas don't happen till the keys are put away cuz NO ONE can ride away from one of MY Margaritas.
