Went for a day ride today with Dirtbike Dave and Jammin Jerry. We made a loop from Austin over to the Willow City Loop, down to Luckenbach, and then back to Austin. Only got rained on for the first 1/2 hour or so and then it turned into a nice day. Paved roads only as I figured the dirt roads would be very wet & muddy from all the rains. Every low water crossing had water & I lost count of the number of water crossings we did.

Neither Dave or Jerry have ridden much of the Hill Country so they got a good intro to some of the wonderful motorcycle roads west of Austin.

Honesty in Advertising? Nah, Harry does a good job.

Eating TexMex in Fredericksburg? :eek2: Man oh man oh man. What is this world coming to? :doh: Don't y'all know about the little place up the road?

:eat: I eat there everytime I'm in Fredericksburg too. :eat: Looks like y'all enjoy their salsa too. :clap:

The red salsa there rocks. We emptied the entire bowl. On the other hand, that green stuff just didn't do it for us (though Jerry seemed to enjoy it some).

The restaurant was packed when we got there about 1 p.m. and there was a 10 minute wait for a table. Clearly the word is out on this place.

The green salsa is ok but the red is GOOD. There has be a wait everytime I've been there regardless of the time of day, late lunch to late supper.

Richard, what is it with you? You can't even take a day ride without water crossings. Looks like a fun ride, I notice you took the Enchanted rock road, one of my faves, as long as there's no Winnebagos. See ya at the TAR '08.

I have to stay in practice, lest I win the "hard luck" award at TAR 08. :-P

Looking forward to your triumphant return at TAR 08.

Speaking of which, TAR 08 sure is a long way off. You should probably go ahead and join us in Mexico for the Mountain Recon...

After qualifying for that award, my wife has upped my Dual sport "permission" requirements from kitchen pass through visa all the way to passport with picture id and fingerprint. Once things drop from condition RED (already down from BLACK), I'll be back on the trail, but I doubt it will be in time for Mexico. Hot iron cools slowly you know (actually she worries / cares a lot when I get injured, go figure). :pray:
