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.
