Today Mark rode into Tyler and we hooked up for a ride west. He was headed to Big Bend and rode into Tyler from Mississippi taking a route to Waco and south to Uvalde. We rode west about a 100 miles to Corsicana and stopped for lunch. Mark's a super guy and really enjoyed hearing about his trade as a professional forest fire fighter. If you haven't met him he looks like a forest fire fighter, a tall strapping and fit fellow that looks like he could have backpacked to west Texas and left his bike at home. He looks allot like Will aka Willmax. He sent me a PM tonight as he made it to Uvalde and tomorrow heads for Alpine, Tx near Big Bend. Ride safe Mark, it was great meeting you.

Just let me know. There are a couple covered bridges near Birmingham I would like to see. We have some great roads and places in Mississippi too.

Thank you, Dan. It wasn't a great motorcycle road but the company was good. I hope to ride with you again and have a better destination in mind. Today was fast and furious but the next few days should be good. I'm definitely going to try that road along the Rio Grande. It looks great.

Once you return home safe and are ready for another run, we will make it happen. Have ridden past the covered bridges many times.....but haven't seen them since I was a kid.

Glad to see "in person" fellowship like that. Good stuff. I look forward to meeting Dan in person when he visits the PNW.

I enjoyed Ft. Davis just outside of Alpine in December.

Glad you guys had time to share.

Mark have a safe trip & ride home.

I've had the pleasure of riding with both Mark and Dan on separate occasions. Both are top-drawer guys.

When I was quickly scrolling the page this morning and saw these pics they were a pleasant reminder of my trip there last summer Larry during the wild fires. The loop thru the Davis Mtns. was open but very smoky. Critters were on the run and fire crews were working the hot spots. One of the riders was also doing geo cache as we were looking for hidden treasure. It was a fun ride.

Never been called top drawer before Will. Now I'll have to buy lunch on our next ride which I hope is very soon. BTW, Mark expressed an interest in our Nova Scotia trip next summer. He said August is most likely good for him but everything is contingent upon fire conditions next summer.

Hi guys I'm happy to read about your get together. If you are interested in taking a newbie along to Nova Scotia trip next summer I’m in along with my loved one which happens to be my wife. That would be a fantastic brick to my wall.

Nova Scotia.... I am gonna have to get my Geography Book out and see about this. Can I drive there? Do they speak English? More importantly, do they have McDonald's with their free internet?

Larry, that northeastern map section of yours is looking mighty naked. A Nova Scotia run might get some of that area colored in.BTW your signature area is looking really cool. You're ahead of on computer skills.

Thanks for your kind words. I was doing that rather than the work I should be done.

Well I might be tempted by next summer. I already screwed this one up with plans for the Hoon Tour!
