    Let me point out one thing about George West. The Rancher where I guide Hunters is the Constable for Mc Mullen County (Tilden) so we have a police radio going all the time and we Liston to what they do. He knows most of the LEO's in that town. They are pulling people over all the time and they will follow you if they think they can find one thing wrong you might do. So a bunch of Sport Bikes showing up in that town we will be looked at.

    If they follow the group, then Chirpy will be the first one they get. They'll be out of tickets before they get to us SA folks.

    Be nice or I'll ride the Sporty, and tell the cop I was just following that bunch of squids to get their plate numbers.

    When we did the movie day in Taylor we faced the same thing. I went by the station about a week in advance and let them know. As a result things went pretty smoothly and I don't think we had any problems.

    You guys did very well on your movie day. The cop that was hanging around was pretty cool.

    Next movie day, let's go to the right bbq joint afterwards.

    Been through GW hundreds of times in a tractor trailer and never had any problem. I'm sure if we act accordingly we'll be fine.

    Once or twice a month doesn't seem to hurt Stoner's skills.

    Jealousy is sooo unbecoming. Not my fault my kids like me. You guys are just jealous of my sweet Civic commuter.

    I'm counting the days until Spencer starts Kindergarten and I can commute on the bike. Then I can rake up meaningless slab miles that will somehow make me a revered rider.

    Heck, that Tex-a-ho (using Tru's termonology) across the street from the unamed BBQ joint had (I say had as it's been almost 4 years since I've been through GW) a little cafe in it that made the best B'fast tacos (Burrito's realy) and sub sandwiches up and down 281. There was another eatery north of there the other drivers liked to stop at that I never tried. I'm sure we can find something in that area to accomodate us.

    What's at Choke Canyon for food? I've never been there.

    At our last meeting I also tossed out the idea of meeting in Corpus and doing the Lex or Aquarium and getting some food by the Bay, but upon reflection that may of made a REALLY long day ride out of it for Austin.
