Added the routes to this ride

@Carlos Lopez: Route looks good! I did find a couple of errors on the loop around Lufkin. The shaping points are on the wrong side of the road and it causes the route to go haywire. I just moved the points to the outbound side and fixed it. I think there was another point that did that too but cant remember where it was. On a divided highway you have to be careful to get the point on the outbound side.

@Carlos Lopez: I found construction on 21 coming out of Crockett and 221 going into Nacagdotous. Check this site http://static.drivetexas.org/#7/32.340/-99.500

Im back on this wagon train! Not going to Spyderfest because Dawn broke her ankle. I will be able to go on this one though. I just made reservations at the BW. They have only one room left. Smoking with a king.

That site will also keep us up to date with road closures due to flooding. It came in handy last year at Spyders in the Hills right when we were having all that flooding. I just saw the weather. a lot of rain is headed this way. Weather will be great this weekend though.

@Scharlene: what time are you thinking of going? I'm heading down between 1-2 on Saturday.
Apr 26, 2019, 4:28 PM
@Katharine Isbell: Travel Math shows it to be 153 miles/approx. 2½ hours driving time from here. I'll aim to be out of here by 1, so I can get there ahead of the riders and get us checked into our room.

520 miles for me. Man I like it down there! Sore and tired but it was a blast.
Apr 28, 2019, 7:31 PM
I agree with Tommy about going down there. I do like it and I had a blast. Great time thanks Carlos.

Great Ryde! I did stop in Canton to see what was going on with my brakes. when I restarted, the Brake falure screen came on but this time is said low brake fluid. I went to Oreilys and put some in. It was pretty low. Problem solved. I will probably be needing new pads also.

I had a wonderful time riding and talking with all you great riders. When I grow up, I want to ride like y’all. I love how you all look after one another. No man left behind. Thank you for making my first overnight ride a wonderful memory. I’m ready for the next ride
God Bless you.

Boy, what a ride. Great roads, great off-roading too. The sunshine was great and the camaraderie was to die for. Thanks all who was able to make it, hope you enjoyed the ride and Thank You Hugh for leading us on some good roads. A special thank you for making my wife’s first long ride an enjoyable one. She reall y loved being out on the open road.

Thank you Ray and Bill for getting me back on the road after my bike would not disengage the parking break. She’s going to the shop on Tuesday. Normas is going in after i get mine back for a full check up too.

After a talk with Lamonster, and the people from O'reillys, I learned that low brake fluid level means my pads are bad. I just ordered some from Lamonster Garage. High Performance EBC Fully Sintered Brake Pads (All Spyder 2013-Present) for us Spirited ryders that like to get it on!
