9/30 Ride @ 45/NASA1 Fundraiser

I forgot to post this last night, but I hope that a few of you may be able to make it. I used to teach at Alvin Community College and a friend there--Kim Strube--rides as well. She's the media coordinator, and she'll be there running ahead of and around the group taking pictures. She's the one who helped me with the pic of Kung-Fu Tweeter (who's actually a family pet). Anyway, I digress--the point being that she'll likely send ride pics to the area papers, etc.




ACC PTK Hosts First Motorcycle Ride During Septemberfest

The Alvin Community College Phi Theta Kappa Motorcycles Unlimited Upsilon Chapter will host its first motorcycle ride during the 15th Annual Septemberfest on Sept. 30. The ride will be held from Interstate 45 and FM 528 (NASA Road 1) to the ACC main campus.

Registration will be held in the Garden Ridge parking lot, located at the intersection of I-45 and FM 528, at 9 a.m. Riders will depart to ACC at approximately 10:30 a.m. The cost of the ride is $15 and all proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, local charities and PTK scholarships. The first 50 riders to register will receive a free event T-shirt.

Riders will also have the opportunity to participate in the car, truck and motorcycle show at Septemberfest upon arrival. The cost to participate in the show is $20 before Sept. 20 and $25 up until the day of the event. There will be 10 categories for motorcycles to compete in. Septemberfest will be held from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.

For more information or to register, contact Heather Herron at (832) 221-5848. ACC is located at 3110 Mustang Road.

Sorry about the short notice. I found out last night then forgot to post. It wasn't bad. We had a police escort which was kinda nifty. It was kind of strange speeding along with flashing lights sanctioning the whole thing. They worked the intersections--it sort of felt like a cheerful funeral procession.

This was my first official ride, and instead of keeping quiet about my profoundly humiliating experience, I'll share. I was the only one on a sport bike--which isn't a big deal--except that the pressure not to act like a 'tard was intense. It didn't help that the moment I rode up I accidently hit the horn (I'm not used to the click-off turn signal). Sadly though, that wasn't the worst of it. Once we pulled up on 45 a giant piece of cardboard came sailing off a truck. Nine guesses as to who hits it. Sigh. I'm told it was pretty cool looking, though, because the cardboard split in two and sailed off to each side. All the old timers turn around to see if I'm still alive I guess. . .I just shrugged and gave a thumbs up. So, the stage is set for the final blow to my ego. We're going down 35, almost at the college, and at a stop light a dragonfly bounces off my hand. I flicked my fingers and the bike dies. Everyone pulls off. I'm so distracted by the fact that the bike won't fire and I'm holding up traffic that I don't think about the kill switch. I push off to the side--completely miserable--and it takes me about 2 minutes to figure out what the problem is. What's so frustrating about it is that I used to ride around with a guy who thought it was the funniest thing in the world to zip up behind me and intentionally flip the kill switch. I can't believe I didn't check it quicker. Anyway, instead of slinking home I went on to the college, consoling myself with the fact that athletes and performers who screw up always finish whatever they start.
