Howdy! They say that shit a lot at the Big Texan Steakhouse. We had a nice time, except for the problems I had with my shifter. On the way to Amarillo I had to keep pulling over to Mickey Mouse fix my shifter. The shaft stripped out and I was able to fix it and it would last for about 50 miles or so before I had to pull over and do the repair again. 3 times it went out and the last time I just coasted to Tripp’s Harley-Davidson in a high gear. I pulled it into service and they had me out the door in 15 minutes with the problem fixed and warrantied. I rejoined the group and a great time was had by all.
We stayed at the Big Texan Hotel. The room was clean, the mattresses were comfortable, the TV was fairly new with a good channel selection, but the room was very tacky. The hot water in both the sink and bath were reversed. The ceiling above the tub was peeling. The outside had a bunch of smallish litter lying about, including a huge bandaid. It was convenient and since we walked from our room to the restaurant, I actually had more than 1 drink. No, I’m not telling the actual total.
