Sunday Funday 3-15-15

The weather looks just about perfect for a ride today.
I get in contact with our friends in Duncan, and ask if they would be interested in riding for a late lunch.
The plan was put into action, and we leave the house about 12:30 to make our way to Lawton, OK. to meet up with Lynn and Keith.

I am already rethinking my choice of jackets for the day.
I hate when I do that....why not just wear the leather and then there is no question.
When we make a stop to get gas on the turnpike, I bail off and grab my leather legs.

We are leaving some really sunny and blue skies for some of the ugly gray ones that have hung around Oklahoma for quite a while.
We are all so ready for sunshine!

As we make our way to Lawton, the sky breaks a few times to show some sun, but not much.
I noticed a very large fire over by Mt. Scott.
The smoke was so high in the air it looked like it joined the clouds.

We exit to meet Lynn & Keith at the Harley Shop in Lawton, and I look at the time.
It is about 3 minutes until 2.
We are meeting them at 2.
No more do we turn into the dealership, and we see Lynn & Keith turn in from the opposite directions.
Now that is perfect timing.

We greet them, and talk about how cool the day is, and then we turn the bikes around and head to our destination.

We are heading to the little town of Burkburnett, Texas.
There is a little place right off the highway called The Feed Lot, and we have frequented it a few times.

Keith is leading us to the State line.
We pass Geronimo, Oklahoma and the copper domes of the Monolithic Dome Institute.
If you want to read about them, here is the link  Monolithic Dome.
I just love to see them shining in the sun...haha...what sun!!!
And not sure if you have heard the song "Geronimo", that is playing the airways right now...but I ended up with one of those pesky know playing the song over and over in my head Geronimo by Sheppard

We take lead when Chuck gets a whiff of his Texas air.
The gray skies are even breaking up a bit and we are getting to see sunshine!
Not too far from the State Line we turn off and make our way to The Feedlot.

Lunch was good, and of course getting to catch up with Lynn & Keith was even better.
We see each other all the time, but seems like the one on one times are special.

We finish our food and of course we would like to ride somewhere else, but it is about 4pm, and we need to make our way back to Oklahoma City.

The ride back was a little better as the clouds have parted and moved on to the east.
The sun feels great.

Keith & Lynn pull off at Lawton to make their way back to Duncan, and we blaze a trail home.
It wasn't totally miserable riding without all my gear, but I really do need to get my act together and fill the bike with the needed clothes....LOL

I know better than to leave without all the important apparel, but it was really a nice warm day when we left.

It doesn't matter though, as we got to ride a little over 250 miles and meet up with friends to go eat.
Can't get much better than that.
We know this is just the beginning of the 2015 riding, and can't wait to make more memories along the way.

Happy Sunday everyone....hope yours was a Funday as well!
