I have a TomTom but I'm not sure I can download GPX files to it.  It only cost like $75
Yep, some don't do routes.

Only a month away!!  I need another 300 mile day.  The ride to Galveston was good except the ride home.  We had a detour that took us down I45 to avoid rain to the East.

Ok folks, we are about 10 days out and I was wondering if this was going to happen in the wake of Harvey.  I went to TxDot and it looks like the roads are all either good or will be before the trip.  I called the Museum and they did not get flooded and are open now.  The trip will go on as planned.  Weather is predicted to be low of 70 and high of mid 80's with a slight chance of rain (cloudy).  It should make for a great ride.

Talked to a friend of mine who works close to the burger shack and he said that seating at prime lunch time is limited, but his reference is M-F. Still looking forward to it.

I wasn't able to get Willy Burger on the phone but was going to try back next week or check the FB page.  Seating is always limited there at lunch time, we will be there a bit later than lunch time though so should be ok.

As cool at it's been I wish I could schedule the start earlier but the museum doesn't open until 1 so there is no point in getting there earlier. Still, the predicted high is 90 and it's likely to go down so the high will be about the time we are sitting in air conditioning anyway.

We have a Willy burger in katy.  Been open for something like 8-9 months but they just recently got flooded out with Hurricane Harvey.

I haven't checked to see if they are open yet.  Need to get on that.  BTW, if everyone shows that is saying they will we are going to have over 10 bikes, maybe over 15.  Big ride!

The ride was a great success.  We had 17 bikes in total and no issues along the way.  We did have one break down on the way home but we had already split up by then and only a few of us had to wait for a tow truck/trailer.  The museum was interesting and the food was excellent. 

Next trip will be to the Waco Mammoth National Park.  Keep posted!!

If we have as big of a group I will need help.  Might need to meet up and have a talk about what we can and cannot do as far as traffic.  No issues last time but I see the potential.
