What year GSA did you get. Ghostrider lives about five miles from me. We need to get together and ride sometime. I also work in Bosque county and take my bike to work, when I can, maybe we can catch a back country ride after work someday.

By posting here you should get email notification when someone posts. Generally I post up here if I'm looking for riding partners for the central Texas area.

Mine is tha Magnesium gray....Daves is a bumble bee 1150....I suspect I will trade my RT for another GSA or F800GS....Got 30K on my 08 GSA and just don't see myself gettin rid of it

Have fun!

Hey Foto...
That place (T) is frikkin huge!! You're gonna want ta try some of the stuff on their menu when at the rally. Tom gave me a chunk (& I mean chunk) of his giant pork chop which had to be 2" thick!!!! THAT THING TASTED GREAT. The sides were dang tasty too. Some kind of cheezy grits & green beans.
Ghost,bigdave & Dahveed each had big ol steaks that also looked tasty.

I absolutely love the Coyote....but the Circle T is right up there too. Even if a bit more $$$. We're havin the rally at a place with a good eatin joint for sure.

It was good eats, wasn't it?

In other news, the world tilted on its axis today and the cause was traced to our table at CircleT. There wasn't a man there below 250 or under 6'1 or 6' 2" tall. The concrete was swaying. Me and the nephews cut a pretty wide swath (the 3 of us are a combined 19' tall and weigh over 700) but this group tonight......well the waitresses were gawking, patrons were hiding their food, and one particularly loud kid kept asking Big Dave if he had brought Babe the Blue Ox with him.

Glad I could make it. Needed an hour or two off. Saw lots of God's creatures in the bar ditches and on the road on my way home. And plenty of effin' deer, too.
