Pre NFL Division Championship Ride

Don't tell me you will be watching football on Saturday. You will on Sunday, so get out on your bike and ride with us the day before.  I will be riding my new FJR, so the ride will be lead a little zippy.  That being said, we don't make turns off and on to roads without making sure all are caught up.

It will start to get warm (well... less cold) by 10, so we will gather then.  We head NW to Bandera where we will stop at the Exxon just south of Bandera.  After gassing up we will head north on 16 to 470, make a left and head west on 470 to Utopia, then 187 north to Vanderpool.  From there it's 337 to 16 where we will stop in Medina at the Apple store to eat if we haven't already eaten. Then on to Bandera where we will gas up one more time at the Shell station.  The final leg will be 16 to San Antonio and Hills and Dales for those who want to.

In case you have not ridden in groups before or for a while, Click Here to see a guide on how to ride in groups

House rules: No limits on reservations.  Passengers need not RSVP but you have to sign a waiver of liability if you are not a HCMR member to ride with us.  I will bring one for you to sign. I watch the weather before we go.  If it is too wet or cold at leaving time in San Antonio, or out west for the times we arrive there, we reschedule.

We gather where there is coffee. Pre-ride brief begins at 10.  KSU at 10:15.

It's Winter and it is chillier on the roads north and west.  Dress appropriately.

My bet the ride will be around 5 & 1/2 hours.  Shorter, if we turn North on 187 to Vanderpool and head back on 337.

Click Here to read about our group so you can understand what we are all about.

*You pay your own gas, food, drinks, etc....

*Watch our meetup site or your email for changes to the ride.

*If you are operating a motorcycle, alcohol consumption is a bad idea. Besides the alcohol effect, it will actually dehydrate you more causing you to be further off  your game, even in winter.  We eat lunch and have several breaks. Other types of beverages are highly recommended.

THE LEGAL STUFF - Please read the ACCIDENT WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY AGREEMENT by clicking on the capital letters.  Anyone who participates in a HCMR ride, including passengers, must agree to that waiver to to ride with us.  HCMR members have already agreed to this waiver as a condition of HCMR membership and as a condition of their participation in group rides.  Your passenger may not have.  All passengers must also agree in writing to release, discharge, and hold harmless, HCMR and its Organizers, Wings, Sweeps, and Mid line Leaders from any and all claims and/or lawsuits for any type of damages arising from any HCMR activity.  Now... go read the waiver by clicking on the capital letters in light blue type above.

      No worries Raman. Just glad we are both ok. That would have been a head on collision at about 45 to 50 mph

    We will be on the way to Galveston Saturday to board the Magic on Sunday. Sounds like a good ride. Don't go too fast on the new red Zoom-Zoom.
