HOG ROAD TRIP . . . . . . . .
The trip to Dallas got off to a great start. We all met at the VFW for breakfast and were joined by a bunch of
Chapter members that wanted to give us a Royal sendoff. We left Lawton to meet Bobby Baatz in Bowie at
the Armadillo Grill. Upon arrival in Bowie we all topped of and head out. Bobby was leading and took us on
114 past the Texas Speedway and then on a FM road thru the suburbs and out to I35E. A few miles down the
road and we were at the Harley dealer for dogs and suds. They had some of the 2008 Harleys on the floor and
boy are they ever looking good. Visited with some of the HOG members and passed out flyers for Thunder.
We left out of there and headed to the Motel. Great place to stay and had a great breakfast too! The motel is
only 6 months old. Anyways, we stored our gear in the rooms and were off to the Baatz house. It was
decided to leave the bikes at the house and use cages to get to Medieval Times. The Medieval Times was a
real trip. Greased out on chicken and ribs. A pretty good meal and the entertainment was of a different kind.
Horses in the dining area??? Oh well. We didn’t have a wench for a waitress, had a Squire instead. He was
good and entertaining. After the food and drinks we headed back to the Baatz House. Then the serious
imbibing began. The bikes were parked in the back of the house and locked up for the night. I was the
designated driver so everyone got with the program. Some played with Nicholas (18 month old Haley fanatic)
and the others played pool while having some refreshments. We headed to the motel at a fairly reasonable
hour. Morning came and we had a good breakfast at the Motel. About nineish we headed to the Baatz and our
bikes. Then we had to make a decision; did we want to cruise and eat in Ardmore or cruise and come back to
the house for the Thai Cooking? There wasn’t any argument; we would come back to the house. Bobby led us
out thru Sanger and around the lake. Going across the dam was great. Then back to the house for food. We
got some fish patties, fried rice and phat tai. Stuffed ourselves and said our good-byes and headed for home.
Hot like the devil going home and needed lots of water. We all had a wonderful trip and are thinking of
making another one to the same area later this year. We want to thank the Baatz family for having us to their
house for a great time.

Ride safe and have fun . . . Mac
