Last weekend we road around Navasota, over to Yankee Tavern, above Anderson.Wow, sounds like she is really enjoying riding. She will really like it come November.
We were close to the same area. We passed through Bellville (36 & 159) around 12:30.
No rush. It is just going to rain.Nope. Stuck in Trinidad this week. Looking forward to getting home Saturday morning.
Yes it does. We plan on getting out.And you were right. Today looks promising though.
I looked for you.My brother and I rode down to Galveston to spend a few hours at the Line Star Rally. It was only 170 miles round trip.
We rode the F-150. In case we needed to bring back more than we took. Which, we did.What times were you there? I only saw a couple of Indians out. I stopped a couple of guys wearing Indian apparel. One turned out to be the president of the local IMRG.
We had planned to be in F'burg for but the rain deterred us. So, we rode to Fayetteville, TX from south of Houston for lunch. A nice little 295 mile round trip. My wife took the photos so I will have to upload later.Beautiful day here in the Texas Hill Country. 67 degrees and blue sky. It's days like this in December that make July and August worth it. Little 75 mile loop that included the Devil's Backbone.

My business partner has one and likes it.Yup! Rode the Triumph to Black Hills Harley (They're open on Sundays until Christmas) around noon, had a cup of free root beer, and listened to a salesman try to get me to buy a Mahindra 'Jeep thing' for $20,000. I somehow resisted the temptation to buy an Indian (as in 'India') CJ copy.
They assembled in Detroit. Take that for what its worth.I'll admit that they're interesting, but they are not road-legal here, and are factory-restricted to 45 mph, although the salesman told me that, with a few small 'mods' they are capable of 65-70. The frustrating irony here is that we can easily get an ATV or side-by-side street-licensed here in South Dakota, but so far, not the Mahindra 'Jeep'. Apparently, they sell most of them to local ranchers for use on their property, which makes sense.
They have a smallish turbo-diesel engine, which I think is kind of neat. Apparently, they are being 'built' (assembled?) in the U.S. As for the build-quality, I haven't seen crappier welding on a vehicle in a long, long, time, and they fairly reek of 'cheapness' in things like switch quality and general appearance. But that's not to say that they aren't rugged and dependable. I'd like to drive one sometime.
@Dr.Shifty has set the bar for the coming year. But, just to be clear, are those miles or kilometers? I want to know what I am striving for.I went out to get a pic of this.
The bike will be one year old in two weeks and this is the most I've ever put on a bike in a single year.

[watching] I saw the speedo markings and was just giving him credit for a really fast bike. But, you have to blow up the picture to actually see the km. Besides, I think some people here actually come close to 30,000 miles per year on a bike.Look closely at the photo. Kilometers.
Not limited to the hill country. We drove about about the same for a late lunch west of Houston. Beautiful weather.70 today here in the hill country. Got about 125 miles in. Only on a bike do you go 60 miles just to have lunch!
Lot of bikes out today. Saw several Indians, a CDH and a Springfield. The Springfield was parked along with a HD and Triumph rocket III. Nice trio.
