Now Don apologized to me for finding this ride but I keep telling him it is not his fault. Heck how would we know that riding bikes along highways, industrial parks, chip and seal roads would be so bad if we hadn't done it in the first place. That is why these are adventures, we do them to find out what they are about and hopefully live to tell the horror stories later. Oh I almost forgot to mention the extra fun they gave us and that was when we made it to the speedway after our second loop of fun we had to do two laps around the outside of the parking lots surrounding the speedway. Now TMS holds like 200,000 people so you are basically circling a small city twice just to finish the 100 miles. I told Don that he has to do the Autumn in Bonham this year in October to see what a good race is like. They don't take us on any highways and each small quaint town hosts a rest stop with all sorts of chairs, firefighters, ham radio operators, food, and fun. They even have real SAG vehicles in Bonham. This race had people at rest stops driving around looking for people on the course as to see when they could tear the rest stop down, not your typical SAG vehicles. They say your first time is supposed to be memorable and this definitely was that because we lived to tell the funny stories.
