Northeast Texas Sidecar Gathering October 8-10, 2021

Re: the Lunch Ride/Meet-Up on Friday, October 8th:

Jena and I will plan to arrive at the Marina by 10am on Friday, then depart 10:30 to ride ±45 miles of FM & county roads arriving at the Alexander Burger Company** in Cushing, Texas, about Noontime.  If you are traveling to the rally on Friday and it's convenient on your travels, simply plan to meet-up in Cushing at Noontime.

** The Alexander Burger Company is a food  truck  trailer with covered seating for ±30 patrons, so we'll need to patient at lunchtime.

After lunch we'll plan to ride ±15 miles via county roads to Mt. Enterprise for a fuel stop, then another ±26 miles back to the Marina.  My idea for an educational field-trip after the fuel stop didn't work out, but we can have an option to split into two groups if any of us would like to make a side trip to "Tennessee" involving a couple stretches of unpaved roads (±42 miles total with ±8 miles unpaved).

Re:  Saturday Evening Dinner-on-the-Grounds

Lynn Rozar has graciously offered to provide a spaghetti supper for us on Saturday evening,**

with two sauces, meat & meatless, plus garlic bread for all.   

He needs help with the following supplies:

  • A couple pots to boil water and crock pots to keep things warm;
  • Paper plates and forks;
  • A couple volunteers to bring salad and dressings (best picked up in town after we visit the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame Saturday morning); and
  • Desserts!!

** Plans also include gluten free options.

Avanell and I plan to be there on Thursday. See all of you then.

 

If riding up from the South, beginning at TX103 on the North side of Sam Rayburn lake, FM95 North to FM1971 is a pleasant alternative to US59.

The weather was warmer than expected but the rains stayed away.  The Fall Texas-Louisiana sidecar gathering was a great time for those who made it.  Was our first time to try Lake Murvual near Carthage, Texas for the meet up.

Here is a random gathering of photos from the event. A group ride to the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in Carthage was organized for Saturday morning.

For some,  the Hall of Fame was a walk down memory lane...

Thanks to Lee, Jena, Kent and all who made this a great weekend.
