The Lonestar BMW Riders held their annual RTE (Ride to Eat) Hamburger Cookout this weekend in Sulphur Oklahoma in the Chickasaw National Rec area. There were a good number of bikes that were on hand. I think over 100 were registered. The weather was great. We all met this morning to get together in groups to ride to the picnic area.
They had people broke up into a fast, medium, slow and dual sport groups. Jackie, Rob, Mark and myself decided to hang out and ride our own route to the rec area. We followed a lot of the route provided by Bo but did make some changes. You can see Bo’s original route on his website.
We got to the rec area around 12:30 after making a few stops on the way. The first big stop was at Turner falls at Davis Oklahoma. I had not been there in the past so it was nice to check it out. It is a very pretty place. There were a ton of bikes hanging out there when we arrived. It is always cools hanging out with bikers. Good fun and the weather was awesome. We stopped and got some friend pie before heading for the cook out. When we pulled into Sulphur, we decided to get some gas. We also noticed that across the street, the local fire fighters were wetting down a building that had been destroyed by a fire. We found out later that the local bowling alley had gone up a few nights before and they were still worried about some hot spots.
When we rode up the place was packed with bikes and smiling faces. We enjoyed our burgers and ate our pie. We visited with some folks and then deccided to hit the road back to the metro-plex. It was a very naice day and a wonderful outing. I am already looking forward to next years event.
