Cappy's Motorycling Adventures in Texas!

Greetings all!  Figured I'd post a few pics from my little roadtrip across the Yee Haw state.

First, you have to spray for "little girls."  If you don't spray your motorcycle for "little girls" it can become infected like mine here.  I'm usually much more professional, but I was in a rush and sure enough, mine got infected and it took more time out of my day to dislodge her with bleach and turpentine than had I sprayed.  Just a pointer for you beginner motorcycle riders.


If you're motorcycle gets infected by "little girls," you will have to have your coffee in a Cinderella cup as you wait for your laundry to get done.





































 You will also be forced to have your motorcycle jacket "improved" with stickers.






































Once your clear your motorcycle of the infection you can now enjoy the country side of Texas:







And after 8 long hours of driving they will built an old Spanish-Western type hotel in your honor:

And that is Texas so far.

Nice looking bike. Is that an Indian? How do you like it?

Nice Cap...probably nice to ditch the snow. In between bikes now but maybe going back to a Duc Multistrada or BMW GS. A few months back got to meet a couple that's been on the road for 13 years; ditched Corp life in the UK. Many great take aways from their talk. 2ridetheworld. May do a Baja run in March...

hey captain, I just thought of a reference that might give you some places to see on the rest of your way out west. There's a guy who quit his job years ago and cycles thru west Texas a lot and mostly the southwest and pacific with his dog and he might be a good person to email on where to stop and what not to miss after you get past san Antonio.
anyways his site is oasis of my soul and you can contact him thru that if you wish.

Just imagine this was all the holiday some company would give you and you'd have to be back in the commute tomorrow morning.

Austin, Mount Bonnell, Big Bend National Park.
It looks like you are close to the last one.
Fun fact, in the old days, the great plains, grass and all, went all the way to the Rio Grande River. What you see today is the result of over grazing in the 19th century followed by mesquite infestation.

"The Empire of the Summer Moon" by S. C. Gywnn, is by far the best book ever written about the Comancheria. Which is where you are.

You buy a new bike or is that a rental?

Joe said...

Nothing brings one back down to earth as being around children does, eh?

Omega Man said...

You would make an excellent father. Although you try and hide it, you love children and it shows big time ;-)

The new bike was a wise move. It would be a miserable ride on your old Ninja.

Don't be such a nattering nabob of negativism, minuteman. On his old bike, he would have felt like he had a MUCH longer ride, for roughly the same trip cost.
