I have two more minor surgeries to do this year, both to remove moles on my left leg. So it appears I will be off the bike for approximately a month. I have to have them done before early October. So my choice is either early August, or right after HHH (ie: last week in August and early September. This means I will either miss the HHH, or the Cotton Patch Classic and likely Autumn in Bonham as well. Between the heat and the long drive with gas prices what they are, I'm thinking I could get to both of the later rides for the same cost and get more miles in over all, and with a bit cooler weather to boot!
