The tour stop locations are now final. A few late changes were made, so you will definitely want to review the list before you make plans to find the sites. The pics below provide hints to the latest additions. These three stops are in very different geographic parts of Texas. See the tour stop page for more info.
The response to the 2020 tour has far outpaced my expectations. As of this writing (Feb 13th at 7 pm), there are 585 folks registered for the tour! Folks from all over Texas have registered for the tour. In addition, folks have registered from California, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Washington.
To facilitate the submission of your tour stop photos, the idea of using email has been scrapped. There are too many riders for that to be practicable. So, we will use a Picture Submission Portal (PSP) on the web page where you can upload your pics. The PSP will be accessible on March 1, 2020. It’s easy to use the portal via a computer or a smart phone.
So far, I have mailed-out 440 tour flags. They are being mailed-out in the same order that folks registered for the tour. The earliest registrants should receive their flags first. The next batch will go out tomorrow.
Time is running-out quickly for folks to register for this year’s tour. Registration closes on February 25, 2020.
I hope to see many of you at the May 16th event in Bandera, TX – “Motorcycle Roundup at the Flying L.” When I created this tour, I wanted to include an event to help a worthy non-profit. Well, I found two very worthy causes. They will both be represented at this event. In addition, several of the tour sponsors will be there. They include Ride Texas magazine, Alamo BMW Motorcycles, Hill Country Motorheads Motorcycle Museum, Frio Canyon Motorcycle Stop, and Liberty Mutual Insurance. Of course, the Flying L is also a sponsor. Come out for a fun time and get some tour stop pics.
We will have raffles at the event for some great prizes. Several of the sponsors are contributing to the raffle prizes.
Several of the sponsors are setting-up internal raffles for the tour riders at their locations. More information about those events will be provided in a future blog post.
When you stop at a sponsor’s location to take your picture, be sure to go on in their establishment and let them know you are on the tour and checkout their great products.
Classic Rock Coffee & Kitchen in Navasota is offering free keychains to the tour riders. When you stop for your picture, checkout their establishment and get some great coffee and/or food while listening to great classic rock music.
In the letters that come with your tour flags, I included a promotion code that you can use to get a discount on lodging at the Flying L for the May 16th event. The Flying L has a variety of great lodging options. If you are coming with a group of folks, be sure to ask them about multiple bedroom options.
We have some real nice tour t-shirts in a variety of styles and colors. Check them out on our shop page. These are high quality shirts at very reasonable prices. Be sure to read the descriptions about the t-shirts on the web page before ordering. There is a no return policy on the shirts.
