Bandidos MC School Supplies Drive in San Marcos at Jack’s Roadhouse


, ,

I wandered down to San Marcos around noon for the School Supplies Drive being hosted by the Bandidos MC at Jack’s Roadhouse. This was a first time event, planned to happen annually. I worked (yes I do work weekends once in a while) in the morning, so I didn’t arrive until about 1pm. By that time, everything was in full swing. Several hundred people showed up, and there was a large pile of school supplies and backpacks filling one of the tents. It was almost 100 degrees when I got there, so a lot of people were inside Jack’s, and those that didn’t fit inside, were mostly hunting shade outside, or at least I was. I did find a couple of square feet of shade with some friends, so I stood around and finished up my Fritos pie for lunch. They also had tacos if the Fritos and chili was too much for you. I found a few other CMA members there from some of the southern Texas area, so we talked for a few. Everybody seemed to be having a good time, though a few lamented the heat. You just have to love Texas summers in August. After making my donation to the school supplies pile, wandering, taking pictures, talking and eating, I decided it was time to hit the trail before I melted. Here are a few of the best shots;


NLR Chapter Meeting at IHOP


Tonight we had out monthly chapter meeting at IHOP. I always look forward to the meeting, because (in addition to the usual reasons, like fellowship) I get to have some kind of special pancake thing. Tonight I had their donut roll something.I can’t remember theme, but it was a cream filled pastry roll smothered in caramel sauce and sprinkled with a generous helping of crumbled bacon. RICH! Anyway, it was a good meeting, and they handed out our Run for the Son awards, I got a t-shirt. The only thing that would have made it better, is if Debbie was here, but she is still in California for another week or so. So, in an effort to get into some trouble, I went to Fry’s Electronics on the way home to look at all the latest gadgets. Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything I just had to have. Oh, one more thing. Louis has recently installed some rotary machine gun exhaust tips on hit Harley. They are definitely cool, they rotate and everything.

UCOA Officers Meeting and Bike Night at the Roadhouse


, ,

Being on the board of UCOA has it’s advantage, for instance, it gets me out of the house occasionally. This evening we had the UCAO Board meeting, at the Roadhouse, which coincidently was also Bike Night. I wondered if out spotty weather would interfere with bike night, but fortunately our allay drizzle seemed to have tapered off to nothing by evening, so there were lots of people there. I made my pass through, doing a little visiting before the meeting, and then headed out back around 7:30. The meeting itself was pretty uneventful, possibly because this is August, and there are few things going on besides bike nights. Anyway, we had a good time socializing. Just two photos this evening, the beginning and the end as it were; Oh, and don’t forget the Back to School benefits this weekend!!

Out for a Ride on Miracle Money Pit

Well, Debbie headed to Cali to visit relatives, so naturally I took her ’74 Shovelhead out for a ride. I had visions of going to Hog Alley up in Georgetown, but as I rode her, my aim dropped a bit (my darn left hand keeps going to sleep), and I headed over to Marty’s house (near the Roadhouse) to show Miracle to him. Marty is a paint and body man, in addition to being a biker and a member of the local BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse) chapter. Anyway, Marty created the paint for Miracle, and he did a wonderful job. So, since we hadn’t been to his house to show him the completed work, I thought I would surprise him. I got within a couple of blocks and couldn’t remember where he lived, so I had to call to get the correct address, but soon enough I arrived in his driveway. He was very pleased with the result, and of course I had to take a photo of him sitting on Miracle. Here you go Marty, your new screen saver 🙂
