    2018-05-05 KS, Hutchinson - 11th Annual Roy's BBQ RTE

    Eleventh Annual Roy’s BBQ RTE
    Hutchinson, Kansas – Saturday, May 5, 2018

    Time to do a bit of planning for next year's riding season. The first Saturday in May seems to be working well, so we'll try it again. This will also keep us clear of the MotoGP in Austin and Moonshine Lunch Run.

    We'll gather at Roy's BBQ (1018 Nickerson Blvd., Hutchinson - also known as Fifth Avenue,) for lunch at 11:00 AM. Most of us arrive closer to 10:30, to allow for tire kicking and BS prior to dining. It's a bit early for those riding in the same day, but it lets us beat the crowd. (Late comers get what the early birds didn't eat, and Roy's closes when the meat’s gone.)
    After lunch we’ll head to the Carriage Crossing, in Yoder, for pie. There’s a small reserved motorcycle parking area on the south side of the restaurant, and plenty of overflow parking adjacent.

    If you're looking for something to do after lunch, the Kansas Cosmosphere and the underground salt museum (in Hutchinson,) are nearby. The Kansas Motorcycle Museum, in Marquette, is a short ride north.

    Anyone heading south or east (or any other direction, if you don't mind backtracking,) is welcome to stop by my garage in Wichita on the trip home. We keep an assortment of beverages in the garage fridge, and some cigars in the humidor.

    We typically have riders from five or six states. The rider traveling the farthest gets a free lunch and pie, and will have his or her name engraved on the “Mixon Cup” (named for Chris Mixon, who took long distance honors the first year.) The Mixon Cup is displayed year-round at Roy’s. Previous winners came from Arizona (twice,) California, Colorado, Illinois (twice,) Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin (twice.)

    Talking with my Amigo Rick about this last weekend. I am sure we will try make Roy’s again this year. Let’s get some of those Colorado boys back this year.

    Don't ask me what I think of you,you might not like the answer that I give to you.

    Ride up on one of your days off sometime, and we'll make a BBQ run to Roy's.

    I've missed this the recent couple years, but was in/out of Wichita last week (love your ice storms! ) remembering I need to get back to this RTE and see everyone! I've put this trip on my work calendar. But I've a 50/50 chance of being on travel, rotating in/out of a project that my team is supporting...we'll see.
