I agree with you man.. This type of ride isn't for everybody. By the end of the journey some of the riders are -> . However everybody always ask for more after about a day or two of good rest.. :BangHead: lol

Some of you have questions about the type of style we ride. Hopefully this will answer your question.

In our group, there is a person we ride with whom we call the navigator. He/she is equipped with a GPS system, Radar Detector and a Camcorder. The navigator will be riding at most, at a speed between 10-15 miles above the speed limit on the main Roads and Highways. On the back roads however, if the Navigator see a long stretch, he/she will give a hand signal (#of miles ahead before a turn + Pass signal) which gives the riders the option to speed up and pass the navigator. Our goal for each ride is not to rush and finish the route in a hurry, as well as not getting any ticket . The goal is simply to enjoy the ride at a decent pace and to visit any historical or beautiful scenic areas along the way and capture the moment through video or stills.

Our last ride to Canyon Lake we stopped at several Dairy queens and had plenty of pit stops to the grocery stores for drinks, Gas, etc. We also had the privilege of visiting Gruene, Texas where the oldest Saloon still exist. At Gruene we hung out and had Mexican food prior to our departure. Everyone enjoyed the experience they received from the Daytrip. It's still a learning process for all of us. We gain knowledge, experience and confident from every Daytrip. We are looking forward to sharing the new experiences and seeing some new faces. Safety has always been and will be our #1 priority.

Hope some of your questions are answered.

Cheers,

John Phoum
