LSBMWR Whitewright Breakfast Ride

April 20, 2008

I earned ride points on Saturday after painting 4 of our new raised panel doors for the house, so I cashed in a few to go out with the group on Sunday’s breakfast ride.

David joined me for his first ride with the club.

The weather was cool in the morning, and I should have worn my liner.  I was looking a little too far forward to warmer weather on the return, so I packed light.

We met at Prosper and and snaked our way up to Tioga, through Sherman, and down the twisty 697 to Whitewright.

697 is always both a challenge and a pleasure to ride.
 
We had a good-sized group for breakfast, and once again, the food was great.  Especially the grilled biscuits.    
  Bo shared with me that he was accepted into the 2009 Iron Butt Rally.

~11,000 miles in 11 days.

David and I headed straight south until Blue Ridge, where we took the back roads through Princeton and Lucas back home.  A bit windy, but a very enjoyable 170 miles on a nice Sunday morning.  And a great way to finish up the Sunday evening is watching the Stars defeat the defending Stanley Cup Champion Ducks 4-1 to advance to the 2nd round!!!

    I was at the breakfast as well. I ride a Blue Triumph Trophy and was there with a couple of Beemer guys. I love your site. I have added it to my moto links. Great stuff!

    Thanks for the compliment.  It’s fun writing up the rides, and photography fits nicely with motorcycling.
