Tressie’s Southern Kitchen 1/25/20
Chappell Hill Bakery 1/18/20
Very slight drizzle at dealership KSU. Not even enough to make clothes wet. It faded … fully dried up entering Magnolia. Nice ride through rolling hills and ranch properties. Good thing Debra didn’t wash her bike! All worked out well. 3 bikers!

Cafe Texan – Huntsville 1/5/20
The ride to Humble was quite interesting, never have I used 2 hrs 20 minutes on 85 miles on a motorcycle. I believe we hit every red light in the state of Texas, to the point i was laughing every time it happened. The weather was great so I just enjoyed every moment of it. And I’m very proud of arriving to location 5 minutes ahead of the group I was sweeping for… Then it was nice to eat food food and socialize with the other guys…
House of Pies 1/1/20
First ride of the year is in the books. They told us it was going to take 30 minutes to get seated at House of Pies but we were seated in just over 10. Good food and great fun with the crew.
