Either way you decide to go 149 or side roads to 1774 everyone will get to shell on 90 around the same time(if the 149 group is speeding.) I'll be back with the family/noob group to get them through there.
I don't think it was intended to be seperate route, nor with intent to ride fast, since we are all here to ride together, and with a show of respect for Coach Dave, his family, and friends. Let's just map out the route you had in mind, and post it, so we're all on the same page.

that's fine; I figured we would go the route CoachDave always liked. I looked at the emails but they are buried with others.

I agree w the group ideas, but we can still all ride together. I strongly caution against speeding at all. As we mentioned the counties do know we are riding that day and where we are headed. Yankees also knows we all are coming and have planned for it(although expect a delay in food since they only have the two iron tops.)

Too bad they don't fire up the BBQ pits out there. That would have been the best thing being they know we're coming out in a large group.

Matty I may have to meet you Saturday and give you the jerseys. I will call ya later.


This is the Official CoachDave "Remember the Bonnets" Memorial Ride April 26th, 2009

Please read over the following information carefully.

What: A memorial ride to honor the great Forest Gnome CoachDave (Patterson)

When: 10am KSU(kickstands up). Mandatory Rider Meeting at 930am

Where: PP69(242/i45 McD's and Shell NE corner) End at Yankees.

Gear: Helmet, gloves, jacket required. Boots, p.jeans, knee pads or suits recommended; we never diss safety.

Prereq's: Come gassed up. Make sure your bike is in good working order. This is a memorial ride. We will have alot of bikers and cars. If there are problems you wont be left, someone will be assigned to you but the group will continue on. If you are a new rider and wish to participate contact us via pm ahead of time.


The Patterson Family wishes to join us on the memorial ride in celebrating the love CoachDave had for motorcycling. There will be many cars riding along with the motorcycles. Due to the nature of this ride there are strict rules to follow and must be obeyed for the safety of all involved.

The volunteer Forest Gnomes will be wearing track vests to be identified. They will be policing the ride every set amount of riders incase the group divides due to traffic/lights. Designated Leader/Sweeper appointed.

Rules of the Memorial Ride:

1. Speed limit is recommended. You are riding your own bike and responsible for it.

2. Road King rules will be followed w staggered formation in the city/straights and single file in the country roads. Full hand signals.

3. No show boating, wheelies, stoppies(I dont need to go on.)

4. No stopping unless emergency.

5. We will not be passing vehicles on the road. The idea is to keep the group together, not break it apart nor create a 'catchup' scenerio. Likely the group will be broken apart during the ride up to 3090 do to lights. I understand many do not like large group rides; this ride is to honor the work Coach has offered to us.

The Ride/Route:

We will be taking the normal ride we are accustomed.

First stop after 242 will be the stop sign on 2854 before 149 for the Blue Bonnet pictures w the bikes/family. Cars can park on the adjacent side of the road or after the stop sign.

In Richards we will turn off 149 to take side roads w Forest Gnomes stationed at each turn to keep the group moving together.

Second stop at 1774/149/90 Shell station. Park tight and do not block local traffic at the pumps/parkinglot. There will be a brief 3090 meeting.

On 3090 we will slow to a crawl but will not be able to stop at Coach's corner. Because of this, the ride will end at Yankees so smaller groups can go back for pictures or to pay their respects if they choose. We will not leave anyone behind at Yankees. There are several ways to go back to i45 and highway6 from the Yankees location.

Documentation:
Finally, I will not be doing pics/video that day. Pictures are more then welcomed to share memories. If camera riders wish to go ahead of the group to take video or pictures, let us know ahead of time and where you plan to be. Know the route/roads if you plan to 'Float' so you are not left behind. And thank you for your work.


Forest Gnomes will be wearing track vests courtesy of vmaxgirl and LSTD.

I agree with you too Matt. The point in this is to do it for Coach Dave, his family & friends. We need to all stick together and do the origional route that Coach Dave enjoyed! Also the pace should all be the same for everyone so we can enjoy the day with everyone and Coachs family. There are plenty of other days to go the faster pace most of us like to go out there, but Sunday is not our day...its Coachs day with his family along with us. We shouldnt do anything against Kim's wishes!

This is the Official CoachDave "Remember the Bonnets" Memorial Ride April 26th, 2009

Please read over the following information carefully.

What: A memorial ride to honor the great Forest Gnome CoachDave (Patterson)

When: 10am KSU(kickstands up). Mandatory Rider Meeting at 930am

Where: PP69(242/i45 McD's and Shell NE corner) End at Yankees.

Gear: Helmet, gloves, jacket required. Boots, p.jeans, knee pads or suits recommended; we never diss safety.

Prereq's: Come gassed up. Make sure your bike is in good working order. This is a memorial ride. We will have alot of bikers and cars. If there are problems you wont be left, someone will be assigned to you but the group will continue on. If you are a new rider and wish to participate contact us via pm ahead of time.


The Patterson Family wishes to join us on the memorial ride in celebrating the love CoachDave had for motorcycling. There will be many cars riding along with the motorcycles. Due to the nature of this ride there are strict rules to follow and must be obeyed for the safety of all involved.

The volunteer Forest Gnomes will be wearing track vests to be identified. They will be policing the ride every set amount of riders incase the group divides due to traffic/lights. Designated Leader/Sweeper appointed.

Rules of the Memorial Ride:

1. Speed limit is recommended. You are riding your own bike and responsible for it.

2. Road King rules will be followed w staggered formation in the city/straights and single file in the country roads. Full hand signals.

3. No show boating, wheelies, stoppies(I dont need to go on.)

4. No stopping unless emergency.

5. We will not be passing vehicles on the road. The idea is to keep the group together, not break it apart nor create a 'catchup' scenerio. Likely the group will be broken apart during the ride up to 3090 do to lights. I understand many do not like large group rides; this ride is to honor the work Coach has offered to us.

The Ride/Route:

We will be taking the normal ride we are accustomed.

First stop after 242 will be the stop sign on 2854 before 149 for the Blue Bonnet pictures w the bikes/family. Cars can park on the adjacent side of the road or after the stop sign.

In Richards we will turn off 149 to take side roads w Forest Gnomes stationed at each turn to keep the group moving together.

Second stop at 1774/149/90 Shell station. Park tight and do not block local traffic at the pumps/parkinglot. There will be a brief 3090 meeting.

On 3090 we will slow to a crawl but will not be able to stop at Coach's corner. Because of this, the ride will end at Yankees so smaller groups can go back for pictures or to pay their respects if they choose. We will not leave anyone behind at Yankees. There are several ways to go back to i45 and highway6 from the Yankees location.

Documentation:
Finally, I will not be doing pics/video that day. Pictures are more then welcomed to share memories. If camera riders wish to go ahead of the group to take video or pictures, let us know ahead of time and where you plan to be. Know the route/roads if you plan to 'Float' so you are not left behind. And thank you for your work.
