South Texas Run Day 3 & 4 Oakland TX • Colorado & Lavaca TX County Courthouse • Columbus & Hallettsville TX • 01-10 & 11-2022

South Texas Run Day 3 & 4 I stopped at Oakland Texas, with some great Texas history.
I wonder down to Colorado Texas County Courthouse in Columbus Texas, which is a beautiful old courthouse. I did not get to see much inside because they had a big case going on and it was going to last for at least a week.
Afterward I made it to the Lavaca Texas County Courthouse in Hallettsville Texas. Christy was nice enough to let me in and take a look inside of the courthouse. The woodwork and architect of this courthouse is absolutely beautiful! I also stopped by the old haunted Lavaca County Jail, which was not open.
I got some dinner at a local restaurant Cabo San Lucas which has some awesome Mexican food, if you’re ever in Hallettsville Texas you need to stop and check this place out.
I found a place to park for the night behind this Gas Station/Truck Stop, Morton’s in Hallettsville Texas. The Walmart which was across the street was small and I didn’t feel comfortable parking there for the night. Morton’s did give me permission to park behind the gas station.
Overall today was an awesome day!

South Texas Run, Day 1, 2 & 3 New Lights On 2008 Goldwing • Headed South • Courthouses • Texas State Parks • 01-05 To 09-2022

For my first day of Motorcycle traveling I stopped in Joshua Texas to get some maintenance done. Thanks Paul! I stopped for the night at the Thunderbird Motel in Hillsboro Texas.
The next day I got a call from one of my clients that I needed some work done, so I stopped in College Station Texas and grabbed a hotel there. I was in college station Texas for two days, I got some work done for my client and I waited out the rain.
This is where my South Texas motorcycle run really begins, I make my way south to the Waller Texas County Courthouse in Hempstead Texas. It was Sunday and I was not able to go inside. The bell tower is the most interesting part at this courthouse that I found.
Afterwards I headed to the Austin Texas County Courthouse in Belleville Texas. The Austin Texas County Courthouse is not one of the best looking courthouse is in Texas, it’s small and square. The traffic splits around the courthouse, which makes it very busy. But the downtown square area has plenty of businesses and it looks very cool.
I got a really nice surprise, I was not expecting the Old Austin Texas County Jail to be open, which it wasn’t. But there were Boy Scouts doing cleaning in the upper jail cells and they let me in to look around. They have turned this old jail into a museum and if you ever get a chance to see it it is very cool to see and learn some history about the area.
Next I went down to San Felipe Texas to check out the San Felipe de Austin Texas Historical Site and the San Felipe de Austin Texas Museum. Texas began as a state of Mexico and If you really want to know how Texas got started, the history and war with Mexico, this is the place to go.
Nearby I camped out at the Stephen F Austin Texas State Park, this is a really nice park to camp out and visit.

Sturgis Motorcycle Museum • Downtown Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Walk Around • 08-06-2021

I have been to Sturgis four times and never have checked out the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum, today I decided to check it out.
The museum was much bigger than I thought it was going to be and it is worth the price to visit the museum.
Afterwards I took a walk down Main street to see what was going on at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

Motorcycle Trailer Problems

The trailer came off the hitch yesterday while traveling about 30 mph on a back road to Fort Parker Texas State Park. I hit a pot hole and with in second I heard scraping noise and felt a bump and was pushed forward hard. It scared the hell out of me! I got the bike parked and checked out the rear of the bike. Trailer was disconnected, the chains did their job and we’re still connected.

I reconnected everything and did a inspection to see why it came disconnect. I didn’t see anything, so it must have been that I did not properly connect everything. I usually double check everything, I’m not sure what happened this time. But I will for sure in the future double check everything.

And when I got checked in at Fort Parker Texas State Park I got to my campsite I was not able to raise the top of the trailer because the winch gears were scraped down to where they were not properly working. I look for a local Tractor Supply store (only 6 mile away) from where I got the original winch and I headed over to Mexia Texas to pick one up.

It took forever to get the old winch off and the steel cable removed. I finally got the new winch installed and it’s working right now. everything is looking good now but I’m certainly going to keep an eye on it just in case.

It took me about three hours to get the new winch and to do all the repairs. All that wore me out and I did not feel like cooking dinner. Out of the blue a lady that was camping across from me comes over and offers me dinner. She was an angel in disguise. Her name is Judy and she was with a group there at the park called Sisters On The Fly. Judy you are awesome and thank you for your kindness!
