November 9

Yesterday I did the Wurst Ride with some friends. The ride is a one way ride from Austin to New Braunfels where the Wurstfest is going on. I knew a few of the guys in the group wanted to go fast, so I figured I would probably fall off the back since I did not want to go fast at this point. As expected, the pace was hard and I decided that after 10 or so miles that I was going to slow down. I was riding the Retro Rocket which was a nice change. I ended up with 65 miles in total. The wind was blowing hard at times and there was a flat straight 5 mile stretch into the wind that was absolutely brutal. It was a good ride all things said. Plus, we got to drink some beer and eat some sausages at Wurstfest after the ride.


The group after the ride.


Check out this moron.

your chocolate milk comment made me laugh, ch. milk IS delicious, but the beauty of the VitaMix blender is you can put all sorts of veggies (and not so yummy sounding items) in there but once mixed it's amazingly tasty!

Wurst and beer... tasty! Sounds like a fun ride except for the headwinds.
Thanks for the "road rash" video.

Is that Motley Crew?
A ride centered around beer and bratwurst? It's like a dream come true!
No hurry to save the guy in the video; any brain damage would be redundant!

Blue - it was fun. I know you always appreciate the moron videos I post.

Neese - yeah. I will take the chocolate milk.

Donald - nothing like a cold beer in a plastic cup at the end of a ride.

Lauren - I invited a few strippers, but the didn't show.

Oldman - you should try that with your Mustang.

Jahowie - put some studs on it and get it out.

The mustang is no more. At least the automobile version.
I will try it with the Sinister tonight and see if I can duplicate the stunt! :^)
