    I hope to make this one, weather permitting. I have invited a friend in Lagrange to join us if he has no schedule conflict. He joined the group either last year or 2015, my memory keeps getting shorter too. Anyway, at the time he was there, he drove his car and was getting around with the help of a cane, recovering from back surgery. He's back on his bike now.

    I was sent over here from the NT-owners site (thanks to mellow). Do you all leave Houston as a group, or each make your own way up?

    May be a few groups ride there, but also quite a few lone riders. I personally can say that I've always been one of the latter, but I haven't been to many RTE events. The attendees usually come from various points in Texas, sometimes one or two from Oklahoma and Louisiana. I will venture a guess that there will be a few members from the San Antonio/San Marcos area, possibly a few from the Dallas/Fort Worth area as well.

    Depends on the groups as Don says. Some get together to do the ride but Houston is too large to gather everyone together. I live on the west side so will be leaving our house about 9:00am to take 529 out through Belleville and then 159 through Industry, Fayetteville and then 153 into Winchester. I'll be two-up with Kathy and with a friend who rides a Goldwing trike so won't be looking for any performance awards. If this works for you, PM me and I'll send you our address.

    Lol... I was going to do the same route, except take 159 to 71.

    I plan to take the quickest way from Alief, I10 to Columbus then 71, 77, and 153 to Murphy's. That adds up to ~1hr & 40 min for me.

    EDIT: Bad news - I had a small mishap Monday that will prevent me from riding the ST to Murphy's for the RTE, but if my bruised up right foot heals up enough I may be able to drive the pony up there. I would never be able to drive it if my left foot were bruised because of the heavy clutch but hopefully I won't have a problem using my right foot for the brake and gas pedal in another day or two, although I may still be limping while getting around. I've been confined to quarters the past two days - bummer! Been surfing the web and watching TV a lot, may be tracking the Rockets/Heat game on my tablet tonight since I won't be able to watch it.
