Oh I'm not trying to downplay the ride in any way...but just trying to see if I was wrong about my understanding of a iron run actually was

I would love to do something like this, but don't see be able to take a 3day weekend away from the pregnant wife and kiddo...

Yes, this is in no way an officially sanctioned Iron event.. just a play on words for those that went on the last one... hence the "2nd Semi Annual" note..

you would too if you had to ride straight down 45 in traffic to get to the forest.

nahhh, I just figure it's part of the game.. I will go out of my way to find back roads tho!!!

Besides, traffic is nothing more than a moving chicane and a chance to practice countersteering and threshold braking...

lol. riding an hour and a half on straight highway is BOOOORRRRRRRING!!! lol. thats why i dont do the forest very often. getting up there isnt bad at all, but at the end of the day of riding and having a full belly from Yankees, that ride home sucks .

Yeah... you have to mix it up a bit.. maybe head a different route for a different lunch spot...

I wish Kings was open, much better burger than Yankees.. for my money anyhow.

But I am SO ready for some OST eats in Bandera...

If y'all ride through Hunt on the 25th then make some noise. LessThanCoop is getting married at our country house, right on 39 about two miles east of Hunt that Saturday.

We'll be standing outside watching you ride by.

We'll be coming up 187 then East on 39 sometime after lunch; probably detour over to visit Stonehenge then on thru Kerrville back to the house...

I imagine we'll be cruisin' by sometime after 2.. again depends if we stop at the motorcycle museum or not...

We are staying just north of San Antonio... Kerrville, Bandera,.. just depends if you want to come to eat with us or not. Kerrville is about an hour or so from Johns house in SA.

http://tinyurl.com/c8vg52

That is Saturdays route, plan is for breakfast in Bandera at the OST, so we can coordinate however many groups need to meet.

Also, if you add your name to the list, I move it up in order if someone else drops out ...
