Tex-New-Rado 5-27-13 Day 6
We are making wonderful time, and the wind is actually to our backs, so the ride is great. The sweat shirt that I left on, is beginning to get too warm, so I do my Houdini trick and take it off while we are going 75 mph, and put my mesh jacket back on. Oh, that is so much better.
Not sure where it happened but as we got closer to Amarillo the wind switched. It was coming out of the south now. We zip right on through Amarillo and notice the wind speed is going steadily up. By the time we reach Shamrock, Texas, it is blowing over 25 mph with who knows how big of gust. We stop the the Texas Stop Sign (DQ) and grab some quick lunch and set sails to home.
Our final stop is in Hinton, Oklahoma to fill the bikes and give our final hugs to our awesome group of riders. We have traveled a good amount of miles with each other over 5 full days of riding, and I can only speak for myself, have enjoyed them all. I hope the other riders have enjoyed it as well.
My husband has outdone himself with all his planning. We made a few u-turns along the way, but can say we didn't find ourselves on any dirt roads. :) Great planning Chuck and I really do appreciate you driving me all over these United States and seeing the beautiful roads we travel.
It is a little after 4pm when we got home. The weather I spoke about is already starting to build out west. Glad we were able get past it before it hit.
We logged 2084 non drama motorcycle miles, thanks to our Goldwing "Snow"
Thanks to all who participated :)
