    Hey Pat!

    I'm up for a ride. I will call you and we can work out the details and then can post if anyone else wants to partake.

    Just talked to Pat... we are on for KSU at 9:30am at the Exxon in Helotes (the second one... not Exxon at 1604 and Bandera Rd).

    We have confirmed Pat, me, and Ron G on the mighty Repsol. Who else will come brave the cold?

    The route will be 16 to 37 to ? to Bandera to Medina to Vanderpool to Leakey and then maybe to mighty 55! Who knows, maybe the 100 mile loop if we are really feeling good

    Ray.

    OK, talked to Ray and here's the deal:

    Meet at the Exxon in Helotes (2nd Exxon north of 1604 on Bandera Rd.) at 9:00 a.m. KSU at 9:30. We plan on making this our Iron Butt. Out to Leakey, 100 mile loop (including Hwy. 55) and back. Others could head back whenever or we reserve the right to improvise. Come one, come all!

    Does that mean the city? We're headed for the country, too!

    Well, today's ride was more like Tin Butt instead of Iron Butt. Ray got a flat on English Crossing, plugged it, and he and his friend Ron headed back. Mark and I improvised. Mark took me through some high quality goat trails that were real fun and gave me an opportunity to practice. The only other problems were:

    1. Oil burnin' hillbilly pickup who wanted to race. (He was a real duche! Glad that Mark sped up some so we could lose him)

    2. Pickup chick who stopped in the middle of the road, at a curve, with 3 cars coming and waved us to pass her. Thanks a lot, Gertrude!

    Seriously, thanks Mark for leading a really good ride for me. Hope you had some fun, too. About 185 mi. for me. Hwy. 55 still awaits. Maybe next time, Ray.

    That was my "Tin Butt" for sure. Only 56 miles and already a flat tire.

    The flat was a real kill-joy, but I was glad we got it plugged and I was able to get it home. Thanks guys for hanging with me while I got it plugged and ready to roll. A special thanks Mark for the extra plugs and glue. I think those really did the trick!

    Funny thing... got all the way home and when I checked the pressure an hour later the plug looked like part of the tire and the pressure was still 36psi. Bet it would have held all day!!

    Hwy 55 next time for sure Pat!

    Had a good time myself.
    It is not always the ride or the route but the company.
    Shorter than expected but I still got in some good riding.
    Thanks Pat for putting this together.
    Glad you made it home Ray.
