Backing up in time a bit...



Hard to believe that one week and more has already gone by in this New Year... time is starting to speed up as I look at maps, there is no plans or directions, the weather will be my guide mostly as I have to move on to warmer climates, mainly for Spirit. With even two coats on, the poor guy is cold, he does not want to go out and I am not feeling comfortable with his lethargic days... we both need our exercise... him as much as me!

We did not ride yesterday... spend it mostly at Jerry’s and Nalda’s Bookstore... it amazes me for a town this small how many interesting people there are... so many conversations!

There are always pictures from the past that do not make it on the Blog... with Cagiva 549's permission I have posted some of the recent past ones...

Hope you enjoy...

Be well...

Ara & Spirit

A ride to Balmorhea Springs... awesome!



Don’t you be thinking now...
On my way back from Balmorhea Hot Springs, a few miles into the ride, a black truck with blue and red was flashing... I could not see very well beyond it, looked like a couple bikes had kissed the grass...
Not so...
They were shooting a commercial! I stop... U turn... going the wrong way... the local Sheriff is not very happy, but the guys are... a sidecar with a dog? compared to the usual two wheel stuff they have been working on. Any chance to be in it?... I ask... sorry... wrong brand!
Oh well... maybe better luck next time...
The rest of the riding was great... it is all the Blog.

My last day in Texas... you have been good to me... I leave with some new friends and some incredible memories... and I will be back! There is no doubt about it...

Be well...

Ara and Spirit

WOW!!!... That is all about what I can say!!!... That was after I ditched the K12 which had 98000 miles in 18 months!... never got off those two wheels!
That brings back some memories!... Had no idea you are on the Forum...
How are things in extreme GA?... Seems so far away...
Hopefully will cross path this summer...

Well... Adios Texas! All packed... quick stop in Tucson for some tires waiting for me... and Southern California... I am booked till february now!... There will be days without Internet connections...

I can't believe I missed seeing you! I was in Ft. Davis with friends on bikes over New Years. Hell, we took Paul and Voni to dinner at the Piasano in Marfa.

Looks like you had fun...I'm big on understatements.

And I just received an E Mail with this picture of Texas Pete, originally from VIVID1's home country, and Leona...
That was quite a day... right?... sunny day... no wind...

... and then all Hell broke loose... litterally...

Texas Pete has to be the funniest guy I have met in a long time... in search of a Beer!!!... well, two really... at every stop...
You had to be there to appreciate it... I know that VIVID1 did...

Be well...

I'll be visiting with you before you know it. I'm driving my truck (with Mulekick and Snoid and possibly disconnected) to DVDs to say hello to you and the AAARRRGGGHHH crew! Let me know if you need any parts deliveries (or anything at all) from Atlanta.

Hitting the road the 24th at 4:00am... I-40 all the way out to ya...

Cheers,

Vance

In transit, Wilcox, AZ.



You know the drill if you have ever taken a Freeway, in transit as I call it... and most, unfortunately, because of lack of time, somehow wondering why my time has been lacking now suddenly... needing to get from point A to point B as I am doing!
It finally was a good decision to take Hwy #10... as you might read it in the Blog...

Till then... you all be well... were going...
