Cross posted from ST-owners.[/size]2014-04-26 KS, Hutchinson - Roy’s BBQ Seventh Annual Roy’s BBQ RTEHutchinson, Kansas – Saturday, April 26, 2014BBQ at Roy’s in Hutchinson & Pie at the Carriage Crossing in YoderNow that the Moonshine Lunch Run has been posted, it's appropriate to announce the Seventh Annual Roy's BBQ RTE. We'll gather in Hutchinson, KS, two weeks after Moonshine. (Cholesterol levels should have returned to normal by that time.)We’ll meet for lunch at Roy’s BBQ (1018 Nickerson Blvd., Hutchinson - also known as Fifth Avenue) at 11:00 AM. (Optional tire kicking and BS prior to lunch.) It makes for an early start for those riding in the same day, but it lets us beat the crowd. (Late comers get what the early birds didn't eat, and Roy's closes when the meat’s gone.)Save a room for dessert (yeah, like that's possible,) because right after lunch we’ll make the traditional ride to Yoder for pie at the Carriage Crossing. There’s reserved motorcycle parking on the south side of the restaurant, and plenty of overflow on the north side with the Amish buggies. (I'm told the black ones are the fastest.)After the pie, the Kansas Cosmosphere is worth a visit for those who've not been before. They have American rockets, German V1 and V2s, American and Soviet space capsules, and an SR71 Blackbird and a T-38 hanging in the lobby. The Kansas Motorcycle Museum, in Marquette, is a short ride north. You can see everything in the museum in an hour or less: old board racers, flat trackers, and a lot of the machines we owned or lusted after in our younger days (and still do, if the truth be told.) There's also an underground salt mine museum in Hutchinson, if you have a desire to be 600+ feet underground with only one way out...Turnout was down a bit last year due to some unstable weather. We had seventeen bikes, one car, and twenty people show up in Hutchinson: eleven Kansans, two Coloradans, two Texans, one Okie, and our long distance winner from Illinois.Roginoz will buy lunch and pie for the rider traveling the farthest. In 2008, clmixon came up from Louisiana. SoloTotoCoyote rode from California in 2009. George traveled from Arizona in 2010. Another Arizonian, fnmag, took long distance honors in 2011. In 2012 STeve1300 and Scooter (both from Wisconsin) were so close on mileage that they asked to share the Mixon Cup honors. Scout came from Illinois (up north on the Wisconsin border) in 2013. The long distance rider this year will have his or her name engraved along with these guys on the legendary Mixon Cup, which is proudly displayed year-round at Roy’s.

I thought I'd bump this back to the top.  Our first KS RTE is a little over one week away.
