Dfw metallica ride the lightning run

Ok. Now that I have your attention. Any Dallas Fort Worth area riders interested in putting a run together called Metallica Ride the Lightning run? Right now its in the planning stages but I wanted to see who would actually participate to some degree. Any ideas on what the route might be? I was thinking ...time of year could be when the lightning is supposed to occur...I can post it on Cowtown riders or meetup.com and we can scrape up a few more (although not vulcan 750's).
Nothing like fear of impending electrocution to make you appreciate life!
Or...we could set up a poker run to copy cat the cool Run to the hills northerners...
Just seeing what ideas people have if any.

I will say this...poker runs are a lot of fun! I think they are better than just going a big run.
good luck with the run.


did you ever think of doing a "blind in Texas" run?

Thanks man! I totally appreciate it....i am looking into the future.
Just met Letitflight and had a blast. Its nice to meet up and check out rides. I am amazed at how you can make a few changes and make a vulcan look sweet like his! We went to the flying saucer and had a "beer". Next is meeting up with Nightrider and then we will have 3...then...maybe 4....then someday ....a Metallica ride the lighting run!
