Yea I live, work and commute in this area.
As for going to see Patrick, I'm thinking about heading out around 8:00 - 8:30 am to catch him early and try to beat all of the garage sale shoppers out.

P.S. I agree with the I-10/BLTway/I-45/1960 route but, I don't have a toll tag at this time :eh:

I would take the freeway all the way there. 1960 is the worst. Or there is a nice little back road route that will drop you out on 1960 right at Kuykendahl. (Which has some railroad tracks to jump.) 1 light away from the shop.

Yea but, I don't have an EZ tag.
If I did that would be the answer to all.

Maybe I can tote 5.00 worth of coins in my pocket :dontknow:

Go I10, 610, I45

That's the way I take.

I would go, but went last weekend, got tires, oil change, and finally got my sliders on. lol

The other issue is that I'm still breaking it in.
I don't want to push too far past 5k rpm
That's about 55mph
I'd get run down on the freeways at that speed.

Ill be up there on my bike at 9:00am so ill see whoever else is going when i get there!

Im getting him to install the power commander and map it. I could probably install it myself but i would have him map it anyway so im going to save myself the trouble and just have him do it.

Patrick seems like an extremely knowledgable guy from my impression of meeting him today.

Well that works out for me since i only have to go 45N to 1960 and take a left and its on the right hand side.

Im just debating now if i should ride it or haul it up there in my truck?? I wonder which would be better?

I already have the full exhaust on there and id have to ride it without the PC to motorcycles unlimited to have it installed or i could just haul it...

I think im going to ride it.

I just want to make sure im not going to harm anything since it is about 35 miles from my house.

Im sure it cant be that bad for it since they say you can run the bike without the PC but it is recommended.
