Tonight was a great ride. I left from colonials bike shop. I rode alone till I got to the woodshed. I met Roy the guy that got his bike stolen. Mind u be got it back by searching pawn shops himself. We left there and headed to benbrook. When we got to bell air Ray ( Tuneros vice pres ) rolled up to me and said let's speed this up a bit. He and I rode up at a fast pase. I did ok till I gassed out about 1/2 a mile up it seemed. I'm guessing. At the end of the run I was he last biker in he PAC. We went on to been brook batting cages or hauled corse what ever it is. The hill here was tough but I did better on it today. Don't get me wrong it was tough. And I was winded but I make it. We costed down the hill cought our breath Judy's long enough to pick up the pase again at the end of that park. The guys took off and the girl told me I needed to change to a harder gear and stand up. So I did. And it worked. We meet up at the park gate and today we came right back no stopping for drinks or to relax. On the way back I got on Johnny's wheel and did my best to keep up. I did ok but feel off a time or two. When we got back to the hill at the batting cages again I was hurting but Johnny talked me through it again. He told me to look up and to keep up. I made it to the downhill and cought my breath. We made it to jarretts dad's park. Wile going through the park Johnny tile me to move to the front and stay on someone's wheel. I did that and some dumb ass girl made a wide turn and caused us all to scramble. I hit the guy in front of me the went sideways but held on to the bike and we kept it going. Roy on the other hand took a spill. We all made it back to bell air and ride kinda casual for a short bit then we all took off. I kept up front he whole time till I saw a rider pull off to the left so I thought we where backing off. I was wrong. The sting 3 guys again created a break on me he the others so there I was, I had to stand up and push it as hard as I felt at that time I could. ( thinking back I could hve gone harder. I mean it's a short time to give it everything I have to get to the front. ) next time I'll go harder. At the next stop I was there with the pact. The 2 times before they smoked me this time, I don't know maybe they took it a bit easy on me. We got back to the trinity and Johnny and I took the front and had a casual ride back. We all made it back to the woodshed and chatted a bit then we all headed back to where we started from.
Good ride. And to think I wasn't feeling good all week and almost sat this one out.
Thanks Johnny Cox for pushing me and not letting me give up.
So, I just talked with Darrick Caster from the band Kennedy. We
were talking about his show last week in Austin and McAllen. He said that they
packed up all their gear and staged it in a safe area, he thought. After
loading everything up and heading to McAllen, when they arrived Saturday
afternoon his symbol pack was gone. Really sucks being on the road and finding
out that someone jacked your gear. Derek had a great symbol pack. It was a full
set of A Customs Classic Ride over 40 years old that can't simply be replaced. Luckily,
in McAllen they rolled out the red carpet and a guy sold them some symbols expensively
to get to the show. Christmas short of came early this year for DC (Darrick
Castor) because he was able to find a way to make the show go on. But it still
sucks because he has to buy the rest of his Christmas because the cheap “show
must go on” symbol pack isn’t a long-term fix. Good thing the Guitar Center
guys (Chris Landrum or Chill) can hook him up, because Kennedy has a show in
Houston tomorrow night then back to Dallas for a show at Trees, Saturday.
