Fort Worth HOG Road Captains

I wanted to write about the Road Captains from the Fort Worth HOG Chapter. Primarily because I ride with them, know them, see what they do on rides, and have an enormous amount of respect for them. They are often taken for granted and just seen as someone leading or trailing behind each group. Some just see them as part of our Chapters structure of group riding and don't take much notice as to what is going on that makes these riders so special. What most people don't know is the amount of sacrifice our Road Captains give to help make our rides safe. Even outside of riding events they give their time unselfishly so that all of the Chapters members can have a fun filled day.

Strawn, TX & Fort Worth HOG Skills Day

The weekend turned out to be far more than I anticipated.  Originally our plans were to work around the house on Saturday and participate in our chapters skills day on Sunday.  We got up early Saturday morning and the temperature was a nice cool 65 degrees and was only supposed to get up to around 85 for the high. We didn't want to miss out on the nice weather so we planned a short 248 mile ride to Strawn, TX to have lunch at Mary's.  They are well known for their chicken fried steak and Margaret had never been there.  So off we went with chicken fried steak on our minds!  And the ride of course!

Fort Worth Harley Davidson Water For Life Charity Ride 2013

With an event as big as the Fort Worth Harley Davidson Water for Life 2013 ride I figured the extra post would be a good idea.  Margaret and I arrived about an hour early to get some pictures and video of the staging area and take part in the poker walk.  When we pulled up we were counted as bike number 160.  It was early and the bikes were steadily rolling in.

Fort Worth HOG 911 Memorial Ride 2013

Wednesday evening the Fort Worth HOG chapter gathered for their 3rd 911 Memorial ride.  After a presentation of a banner that had the names of all of the victims of this tragic event, Kim read the timeline of the attacks to recall that horrible day.  This set the stage for the beginning of our ride.

Destination: Marble Falls, TX 2013

Labor day weekend brought about the opportunity to sneak in a longer ride.  When you work full time you have to take advantage of those extra days off.  I had some ideas of where to go and tossed them out there for Margaret to choose. The winning destination was Marble Falls, TX.
