    The raffle total was $356, so the winners portion was $178. We drew the ticket and (DRUMROLL)...Congratulations to Detective Earl Mendenhall of the TCPD, who was gracious enough to donate his winnings back to the American Cancer Society Relay For Life!

    A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated.

    Really enjoyed the ride and the food. Thanks Mike and Trish, and Team Morada for putting it all together. And thank you to Anthony for coming to the rescue with his compressor and tire plug kit when a large nail deflated my rear tire. You are all appreciated!

      Greg, the ride is starting from Latitudes, so i'm sure someone will be there that can accept your donation. Trish also posted an online link to their team donation page in the string below. I would like to thank you too. As I said before, this ride has taken on a personal meaning to me after Tony was struck with cancer. Thanks for your donation and support. It's good to know people do care.

      Thanks Greg! We will be at breakfast, so you can donate then, or online as Gordon mentioned.

      Thank you for following up on this comment for me, Gordon! I've been away from technology for the better part of the day today. :)

    We only get a sitter one time a weekend if we are lucky. We are using that for the Saturday ride. Wish we could attend this.

    Mike and Trish,
    I was so looking forward to this Benefit Ride, unfortunately after taking my bike for maintenance at the dealership, it appears that my bike will have to stay at the shop a little longer for repairs and I may not get it in time to enjoy it this weekend at all.

    Thank you all so much for your support! If you want to donate online, please go to:

    http://main.acsevents.org/goto/TeamMoradaTexas

    and click on the "Donate Now" button.

    You can also dedicate a Luminaria from the same page, if you wish. Just send me a message to let me know if you want to decorate the bag yourself, or if you want us to do it for you. We're trying to get as much money turned in as possible by 4/14/13 - that's is the first "Bank Night" for our event.

    We would also LOVE for any of you who can make it, to stop by the event on May 10th. :)

    I know that this still about a month away, but, At some point I need to get a head count of who is coming so I can arrange for the food.

    So, I am asking that RSVPs be submitted by April 1st.

      Mike, as I wrote before, I plan to attend. I am hopeful that Tony will be able to attend if he feels up to it, and if so, he will require someone to drive for him. I'm sorry, but I cannot give you anything more definite on him in all reality until the day of the event. Kathleen may rsvp on her own since she has joined, but I can't speak for her, nor can I say if she will be riding with me or driving for Tony.

    Final destination will most likely not be Jack Brooks Park. My sweet hubby & I didn't realize that was Galveston County Rodeo's opening weekend! We are now looking at ending up at the spillway in San Leon, but we're open for suggestions.

      Good suggestions...I'll look into them! Someone also suggested Sylvan Beach in LaPorte. :)

    This has become a personal cause for me. I am hoping my friend will be well enough to maybe follow along for this ride. My RSVP may change, or the numbers, but I am hopeful to attend.

    Greetings Mike, I am not just new to the group, but also to the motorcycle world. I have been riding my new bike to work and home for 6 days now and my 3 gallon tank lasts me, approximately 2 Hours, and at 2.5 Hours, I seem to be testing my luck from running out of gas. I remember a conversation had started on this trip and I read that the trip will be for 3 Hours. Do you guys usually have a pit stop for gas filling?

    March 2, 2013

    • A former member

      We always make sure that we make rest and gas stops on our rides.

      Hi Jose! Mike is at work, but he always plans his rides to stop at least every[masked] miles or so - which (depending on highways or backroads) ends up being every 1-1/2 to 2 hours. With this being a 3 hour ride, we'll probably stop once, somewhere in the middle. I hope that helps! And thanks Anthony for commenting! I'm looking forward to seeing you & Denise at breakfast tomorrow!
