Oklahoma- WinStar Casino & Long Straight Roads

After working around the house for a couple days trying to catch up with necessary repairs and maintenance it seemed a good time for a relaxing ride. Margaret had been bugging me to go somewhere but I resisted so I could get work done. Finally through sever perseverance on her part I gave in and planned a short ride. It was a surprise for her and until we arrived at WinStar Casino she had no idea where we were going.

Healthy Living for Healthy Riding

Healthy living for healthy riding can be the most important aspect to enjoying the ride over everything else you do to make riding enjoyable. Many riders, including myself, modify our bikes with items like grips, seats, foot pegs, suspension, and the list goes on. We do this to attain a comfort level that makes our ride more enjoyable. Gear can be another item we can spend a lot of money on to further attain a comfort level that's suitable.

Paluxy River Ride Glen Rose, TX

Our Saturday began by installing a new garage door opener. The old one died so we needed to replace it. It took us all morning to install that opener and by then we were hungry so we ate at home. With rain moving in over the night leading into Sunday we still wanted to get a bit of riding in. It was around 2pm by the time we were able to get going. I had a new route planned that I wanted to try which wasn't long so this seemed a good time to try it since it was already well into the afternoon. We headed out towards Granbury, TX then on to Bluff Dale, TX which is the beginning of the route.

National WASP WWII Museum- Sweetwater, TX

Beautiful weather and the need for Interstate riding practice prompted this ride. Since June of 2013 Margaret has quickly excelled in her riding abilities. 5K miles in 9 months through many types of road conditions, riding through streams, dirt roads, gravel roads, rain, heat, and cold has been good for her. The one type of road she has not put many miles or hours on though is Interstate freeways. Interstate freeways are quite different than State and County roads. You ride at high speed continuously for hours and they have more vehicles and big rigs. They are usually not as scenic and enjoyable to ride either but for obvious reasons provide a faster route to get to your destination in a shorter amount of time.
