    BTW I rode with you and the Blue Knights out east of Liberty to a Soul Food Resturant.
    I just rode my NC700X in the New Mexico Mountains this month and next month Im riding to Myrtle beach to visit my son and let him take me up in a helicopter he pilots tourists in. Then swing by Destin to meet some friends for some fishing.
    I do like Soul Food..... I have been riding with the Blue Knights since tha organization started. I can not count how many kids we have made Christmas for. I also ride with the Retreads, and we do have one new member under 70 now.

    The Retreads started the NUN RUN, which is escorted by the Blue Knights. That is a couple of hundred bikes we escort out of Villa De Matel Convent. Mattress Mack and Nolan Ryan have been involved with helping the nuns since the start. These Nuns work in the City of Houston has just been unreal....... Besides it is so much fun riding a nun on the back of the bike.. Nuns do like riding on motorcycles............
    Try the Nun Run, something all bikers love.....

    I have made the ride you are talking about a few times. It takes two days each way. When are you leaving?

    Why not seize the pleasure at once? -- How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, and foolish planning? Just do it. Shut the frunk up and Ride !!!!!!!!!!

    The Nun-Run is a must do ride for me every year, since Sister Rose Ann helped start the event. Sister Rose Ann in the picture is not just a Nun, but is considered by so many folks as one of the best doctors in the entire world.

    You would not believe the number of well known folks who go the Sister Rose Annís free clinic. She does expect a payment, only if you can afford it. She has practiced in most all of the world. Rich or poor Sister Rose Ann will take care of you, she turns away no one. She is a real saint....

    Life is Wonderful, if it isn't you may be doing it Wrong!

    18 centuries of the choice, 'believe this way or die', & always chosen life, is a lineage difficult to separate from. I understand. But do not fear my belief science created the universe, I'll never say "Big Bang's Will" made me do you harm. We are a genuinely free & peaceful lot.
