Hey,
I seen your post. I am 100 miles west of DFW. Always in and out of the metroplex weekly or bi weekly. Single and I have been to Sturgis, 19 of the last 20 years. I stay at Glencoe. I have multiple options on getting there/sleeping arrangements. Park near the showers and ice house. I try to take someone but several cancel right before its time to go (work or family matters come up & I understand). I plan this yearly event and have told others, sorry but I already have plans. Then BOOM!

It's a SUPER event to see ANY part of, breathe some mountain air and get away from the Texas heat. AND the Needles Hwy or Custer's Park is amazing not to mention MT Rushmore or Devils Tower.

If you'd like to meet, visit and see how you feel about joining me, it'd be a pleasure to find someone like minded. I work for myself so I can run to DFW when its comfortable with your schedule and we can kick it around.. No immediate decision is needed on your part but fairly soon would be helpful. I'm going, if it's closed, alone or with a friend.

Usually, I get there early and watch the town transform,. See all the incoming from the Sidekick Saloon front porch. Really great city to clear the cob webs and friends at the campground - we look forward to seeing each other. Great place if you've never been, you'll never forget it! f you'd like to meet or my number, just say the word. You'll love the bike!
Cheers Mate,
Bobby

Hi Bob,

I’d love to see if we can meet up. Let’s see if we can get our schedules to mesh up. I usually work Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights with an occasional Sunday night or random day shift if they get crazy busy. (I work in an ER). Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Good afternoon Fender Bunny,

Thank you for the work you do. Not many (very few) can walk that walk. It speaks volumes of your mind, body and soul. My hat is off, to yaa! AND I know you have some stories to tell (if you want). This vacation is a NO PRESSURE zone. It's for "Recharging Time" to go back and fight the web we weaved, with a smile.

My weather forecast was rain and lightening for the next 7 days, yesterday. Now it's totally different. I had an appointment for today, but no call or sign of him showing up for the 3rd time. On the 27th, I have an appointment to buy an older Fifthwheel for a young family. I agreed to move the unit to their location but no exact time was set..I think they will arrive late and they need my help on the 28th.

I guess I said all that because, Ive learned, to keep the communication open and accurate. I DO want to meet you! There's a great place in Arlington, called The Southern Recipe" but Im not sure who's open or closed. There might be a better place, away from a restaurant to visit or say HI.. I really just don't know what's open as well as how far north of DFW that would be convenient for you... You tell me, a place we can meet up and I want to do this before you go back to work Friday..

So, if you have an idea, throw it at me! The demo guy, can wait. The buyers on the RV, I need to catch. An x-employee told me she would be here Tues morning (but she can wait, I have waited on her so many times, its wrong on my part to hire her back). I just need help, yaa know and it's tough to find.

Forget my schedule!!! There is an important trip coming up!
So, this afternoon, tomorrow is good or later - I don't want interrupt your plans, please tell me a spot that is comfortable with you. I'll blast out of here and TRY not to be late. It's GOOD to be alive and it was encouraging to get your quick reply back. Maybe over the phone would be safer than this public forum. 325.665.3355 will reach me.

Have a Great Day!
Bobby

Ugh...I just got up a little while ago and my work called asking if I could fill in for a coworker tonight. I already put in 50 hours so this will up it to 62. I work 12 hour shifts. If it’s not crazy busy tonight, I’ll send you another message.

Ok, things are calm right now, of course I probably just jinxed it. I haven’t worked a Monday night in a while but wasn’t sure what to expect with it being the tail end of a holiday weekend.

I appreciate all the accolades from earlier, but I don’t do direct patient care, I’m just the front desk clerk. I check them in and out, verify insurance, collect money and so forth. But we try and make the experience as pleasant as possible. Nobody wants to come to the ER.

Anywho.....so what’s up?

Hi Fender Bunny,

I wrote you earlier today. I guess it disappeared. It's sure not on here.
I didn't hit preview, just submit and there's no indication I answered you at all.

Where in N TX would you like to meet?
What date/time is good for you?

Thanks,
Bobby

Hmmm, that’s weird. Oh well...I actually live west of Ft Worth in Weatherford.......so Weatherford, Ft Worth, Aledo, Willow Park, Benbrook are easier for me, but if it has to be Arlington, I’ll figure it out. I have map quest :P

Not sure what's going on BobNT - we don't prune the posts like that... or have timing limitations.

And yes Sweet Angel, check it out. I've got a small crew working this afternoon. I'll probably let them good at 5:00.

Weatherford is less than 2 hours. So, Keep me posted...

Thanks!

Ok, I’m still checking on restaurants that are allowing people inside. What kind of food do you like? It’s looking like next week is going to better for me to meet up. They changed my schedule and I’m working Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights this weekend.

Hey

Next week is fine. I am covered up with more going on than I care to type.
Food, I like Mexican food. Right now, I like OPEN!

I bet, The Malt Shop on 2600 or 2800 East Ft Worth Hwy is open. We could get a great homemade ice cream malt. They serve steak fingers and burgers too. It would be outside, on a picnic table, under an awning, near the serving window. -Just a thought - but I bet they are open.

Keep looking. I'll do the same.

Goodnight

I love Mexican food; well more specifically, Tex-Mex. my favorite restaurant here either folded after they closed due to the pandemic or they’re relocating. All of their tables and stuff are gone. :cry2:

I’ve live here for almost 25 years and have never eaten at the Malt Shop, but it sounds good to me. :multi:

Good morning

Sounds like a plan.. I think you'll enjoy it and it's easy to find.

Have you ever been to Sturgis or any of your friends?

I’ve never been. I’ve never been to any rallies. Guess I’m kind of a virgin in that arena :oops: . I’ve talked to several people who have gone and said it was awesome.

I go for the scenery, catch a few events, have toy hauler that has plenty of sleeping area, real nice scooter, riding all of my life and know the lay of the land, avoid problem people, have multiple rally friends that we meet same spot.. it'S an event you'll never forget and I don't expect anything but drama free environment. love to meet you. Super super vacation and I know what the police look for. If we meet, I give you my personal history that you should be concerned about.. no worries here. And its ok if you aren't going but I want to know. I might take another friend that does know me. her language is kinda harsh and embarrassing even, the things that come out of her mouth.. I hope we can meet, if we go, great , if we don't, no worries! Just tell me your thoughts.. Have a great day!

Hey there! Haven’t heard from you in several days. Thought I’d said something wrong. Yes, I definitely want to meet, see if we’re compatible and you want me to go with. Don’t worry about your friend, I’ve known a few bikers and they can be pretty gruff. I’m fixing to lay down for a bit( I work nights)...but shoot me an email at: [email protected]

Hey, still looking for a ride? I will be free from work next week and we can meet anytime you want. I just don't like to ride alone and looking for a companion. Riding a 2002 HD Fat Bob. I was thinking about visitng my mother in her real estate in Cannes next week but since the borders are closed my plan has been cancelled. So if you are interested just DM me!
