got home about 20 mins ago. had a blast. after we left the group near willowbrook we headed back toward Humble. got ran off from walmart. so we went to the strip that bestbuy is in and ended up handing out over 50+ candy canes most of the from the toys r us. people kept coming up wanting pictures taken and even wanting to have thier kids pictures taken with them on the bikes with us.
The funnest story was was there was a little girl about 3 asking her mom why there was 2 santa's she explained to her the one with the beard (me) is santa and the other without was his helper (Andrew).

It was over all a great time seeing all the smiles on everyones faces.

Our group (West) got run off from a WalMart. Had a blast. My favorite moment was when a little girl came up to me and said "Santa, I am so glad you are wearing a helmet. Be careful!". Rode home down westheimer and had a lot of cars honking and waving.

Had a great time I will def be doing this every year now! I will say toys r us in humble with prothos was the best spot! We ended up just turning the bikes off cause lines were basically forming for pics and candy canes. I even had a lil girl tell me her Xmas list! 11 hours of riding and my back and a$$ are killing me! Great time guys

What'd the cops say? I think that's 2 years now that Wilowbrook has shut OC down.... send a note to the media about their lack of Christmas Spirit and Grinch like/greedy attitude

They were called in (2 units) after a guard told us to stop. We were scattered but the front was waiting at a stop sign. By the time the last person finished passing out they were passing him. So they didnt catch us.

I was kinda wondering what they'd do. I'd be happy to send their child, wife, cousins etc a postcard saying daddy put St Nicholas in jail

Either way that bridge is burnt and I wont be going back. Sorry that area gets to miss out on the Christmas spirit we can share.

Really hated to miss the ride but still feel like so it was the right call - by the time I had enough meds in me to feel better I was in no shape to ride.
