Next Stop: Houston

13 Sep

The ride from Albuquerque to Houston took 2 days.  During last year’s ride, I took a slightly longer, southern route so I could stop at Carlsbad and Roswell, but this time I made a straight shot across Texas.

The scenery was less interesting (there are only a couple pictures in the photostream), but the northern route was a quicker ride.  For the most part the ride was uneventful, although I did get pulled over by the highway patrol.  The speed limit was 70 MPH, which is what I though I was doing, but the police officer said I was a bit over.  The officer was polite & friendly, with many questions about the Kingpin – apparently Victory Motorcycles are not in the Texas Highway Patrol’s computer system.  It was a quick stop and, thankfully, I received only a [written] warning.

In Houston, I’m visiting with my friend Kristen and family.  The next destination will be Nashville and should take about 2 days.  It looks like it may be a rainy ride, but schedule dictates that I get back on the road.
