Pick a time and a spot. My back tire looks like Uncle Fester's shiny head but.......hey. It ain't THAT bad. At least it's holding air and if not I can bring the mighty KiLleR.

I don't care where we ride, but how about Loco Coyote for lunch?

Here's the route I was planning to take down your way. I know, its not the fast way...

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...1,3.424988&z=9

Hopefully that link works. I'm a google map noob. Some things I really like about it, others are impossible to work well. Let me know if you can see it.

I don't know the loco Coyote, but I'm good to try anything.

Both my tires and skills have limited grip...

Try this. Great place. But I'm game for anything. BTW, that's not a bad route down. I ride those roads every weekend.

With my bike at the dealership waiting on warranty parts I'm going to have to pass on this one; hopefully next time! BTW it someone could post up the route you end up riding that would be great.

Will Meridian work for everyone and time is flexible. I would say 9ish so we can cover some roads back roads before heading toward Granbury for lunch at Loco Coyote and to make it easier for DFW guys to head home. Slowoldguy, is Rod joining us?

Meridian is good with me. I can do 9:00. I'll go with this unless it changes.

Sunday, 9:00 am in Meridian. I'll be the cold looking (and feeling) rider with the black jacket, white helmet on a blue KLR 650.

Lets meet at the county courthouse in the middle of town.

I'll be there. Will plan on arriving early enough to gas up and be ready to ride at 9AM. Black and yellow 800GS.

I'm in. I'll be on the slightly pink-ish faded maroon KiLleR. (Just not enough tire left on the pigbike.) I aired up the tires and mounted the GPS. Spent 15 minutes cranking on her and 10 more minutes cussing her till I realized I had turned the gas off after my trip to Tombstone. Yep. I'm that bright. Thankfully no one saw me.

Let's just have some good fun and everybody leave their egos back at the ranch.

It appears we have lost our fearless leader. Something about a tree limb and a bulldozer but I was getting it second -hand. It didn't sound pretty in the rendition I got. I am not the dirt-road guru with back-road knowledge but ........I also don't care if I get lost. If anybody wants to do some 'sploring I'm still game. But it's up to y'all.
