8th Annual Texas Honor Ride

ATTENTION EVERYONE: TIME CHANGE
The Texas Honor Ride  has changed the the registration times and the starting time due to the amount of people attending this event. We need to now meet at Whataburger at 5:45AM , with KSU at 6AM. If you are not there at 6AM, you will be left behind. 6AM SHARP!!!!!

The 8th Annual Texas Honor Ride, November 9, 2013.
Over the past seven years The Texas Honor Ride, a 501(c)3 charity, has raised over $640,000 for our Wounded Warriors at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) in San Antonio. All funds raised go to the Warrior and Family Support Center at BAMC where the staff and counselors administer the funds. (THR is 100% volunteer!)
All donations are tax deductible.
In addition to our THR merchandise, when invited, we attend other rallies, club meetings and events, like the Texas Open Chili Championship, the Oldest Town in Texas Rally, the Lone Star Rally...
We organize three Texas Honor Ride fundraising events. Our Spring Texas Honor Ride Fun Run, our September Texas Honor Ride Fundraiser and Ride and The Texas Honor Ride in November.

More Details to come. If you haven't done this yet I would recommend it and I am sure that others that have gone will recommend going also.

For the past few years that I have gone I have stayed @ http://hillcountryrvresortnb.com
Very nice place to stay. Prices are not bad!

    I'm afraid that I am not going to make the ride. Even though I really want to. Family issues are preventing me from in all good conscience of riding tomorrow. We are still having ongoing issues with dad. And mom has gone back into the hospital again with heart issues. Plus I have family coming out of Oklahoma that will be here sometime today. Could someone be so kind as to pick me up a patch or a rocker and a challenge coin and I will pay you back when we meet thank you.

      Ill take care of Troy guys I know what he wants. Troy sorry about the family nothing but prayers to you guys. Ill surly miss you tomorrow I was looking forward to hanging with you for the weekend. We will get together and do a weekend ride soon. Take care of the family..

    Ok, I trully am trying. Cant fit a cup holder on my handlebar, so I tried that weird water purse thing. I couldnt get use to it, so I tried something else. This bag bottle, that I hooked on my belt. Equally, weird and not able to get use to it either. Now, I think that I am getting prepared for this ride.
    Just bought me this heavy duty, hardcore camping "phanny pack", but its so heavy duty, I am able to strap it to my leg, and use the additional shoulder strap to strap it to my belt, in order to keep it from falling down. Looks like a tactical tool pouch. I think I can pull this off, and not look so hmmm.... Geeky, I guess :D

      Jose, do you have disc brakes all the way around? If your rotors aren't scored or need machined, changing the pads is easy. I put the full set (F+R) on my bike in less than 45 minutes in my parking space at my apartment.

    Yes they are small players in the game so I lost my fee.

    No I am good. I can leave my bike and trailer here in Austin with a friend. I can drive my truck back to Manvel with my right leg. I go to the ortho on Monday to see how bad it is.

    IF YOU HAVEN'T PREREGISTERED:

    Important note from TEXAS HONOR RIDE:

    "On-line Preregistration for the Nov 9th Texas Honor Ride has closed. THANK YOU to the record number who preregistered! For those who did not you CAN register this Saturday at one of the three staging areas on site. CASH OR CHECK ONLY accepted to register at the staging areas, NO CREDIT CARDS as our credit card machines
    will be at BAMC in the store."

      Also: If you haven't made this ride before, be SURE you bring about $20 or so in cash (small bills) for your fuel at Bucee's - they will NOT make change for you. You pull up to the pump, they hand you the nozzle, you fuel with what they give you, you hand the nozzle back, they say how much and you pay them, then you move on. You never even get off your bike. Fuel is rounded to the closest whole dollar amount. Recommend a ten, a five, and five ones ($10, $5, and five $1 bills). Most that have made this ride before know this. This is mainly for those that haven't.

    Hey guys, is this the same Whataburger we met at for the Twisted Sisters? If so, I have some experienced advise!!!!! Leader, please do not take the entrance immediately from Gessner. Too close and dangerous. Prefer to go through the light to catch the next entrance.

      Jose, you turn right (north) on Gessner from I-10. There is a CVS Pharmacy on the corner. The Whataburger is down past the CVS, Radio Shack, pawn shop, and Mister Car Wash on the right (immediately after the car wash on the right), almost mid block between I-10 and Westview. It's a good ways down the block from the freeway on Gessner.

    Just wanted to remind everyone.. In a "worst case scenario", if needed and you break down on the road or run out of gas - If/when nobody else is available to help, you can always call "TEXAS ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE". The phone number [masked]) is on the back of your driver's license.

    Share with your family - this can be a lifesaver!

    • Jose Samano Jr (.

      Hi Theron, actually look at the end of the description of this ride above. However, at this time, the availability may be low. Look through some of the conversations through out this event. Some people have posted that they have an extra bed, or room depending on the place they have reserved, in order to split the cost of the place.

      November 6, 2013

    • Jose Samano Jr (.

      The place recommended at the end of the description is in New Brawnfels, which is where most of the club members will be spending the night.

    Is there anyone out there that still needs a bed on this ride? I had a rider guest, but they cancelled at the last minute. I have a cottage that has two seperate bedrooms with a queen bed in each room. I am willing to split the cost if anyone out there still needs a place to stay at the Hill Country RV Resort.

      Also, after my experimentation on how long my tires will be too worn, and basically getting a better feel on the wearing of the motorcycle tires (completely different than F.U. and letting mesh on the tires getting exposed) I realized that its bad timing. Hope to be able to get new tires on my bike on time for the ride.
