2019 March Carmine Ride




The weather cooperated with us, allowing both Friday’s and Saturday’s rides to proceed uninterrupted. Friday’s ride took us southeast into Washington and Austin counties, arriving at The Kenney Store for lunch as we did last yesr. We were not disappointed—the hot meals provided a welcome respite from the cold weather. The “store” has developed quite a reputation as a local meeting place for musicians to gather to pick and sing. They also host many well-known C&W bands on weekends. We then hightailed it back to Carmine as direct as possible due to the cold weather. I’m pretty sure Ben Sargent will not forget this ride back. It took the rest of the evening to thaw him out!

We had our traditional Saturday morning breakfast feast in the garage before leaving for a ride through Fayette and Washington counties along Scenic FM 390—a favorite route for motorcycle groups to practice their skills at twisty, winding roadways. We stopped in Burton for gas, and then proceeded on to Independence for another gas and rest stop at Lueckemeyer’s general store. Our destination was, of course, to eat lunch! So, we headed down to the Brenham Airport where we ate lunch at the recently re-opened Southern Flyer Diner. The food did not disappoint! The place was just like it was before closing 2 years ago, with a malt shop atmosphere, complete with waitresses in poodle skirts.

The rides start at 9:30 from the Pecan Grove Inn parking lot on both Friday and Saturday mornings, so those coming from a distance need to arrive on the 14th to make the 9:30 AM start time on the 15th. The Carmine Chamber of Commerce has asked us to park our scooters in front of the Depot Museum when we get back from Friday’s ride. They want to attract visitors & townspeople to the ribbon-cutting ceremony that afternoon. The meet will be at the Pecan Grove Inn B & B, 233 Augsburg Street in Carmine, http://www.pecangroveinn.com. We (yes, that’s my wife and I) have six rooms. Call James or Jane Press at (281) 433-8845 to book or for further information
