Strom-A-Thon Texas 2014 May 2-4 2014

Welcome


This is a NO fee, NO registration event for all Suzuki V-stroms, young or old, any color, and any size. We hope this will become an annual event so let us see if we can make this happen. I initially posted this as a Texas event but that could change as we see this develop.

This is primarily a riding event but can also be a family event as well. The area is great for sightseeing the hill country plus the spring time of most years bring an abundance of wild flowers. A major photo op here. My wife has not been to Llano other to drive thru on our way north, so she plans on coming for Friday and Saturday nights to explore the area. Other SO's are welcome to join in as well.

Locations: Llano Texas in the heart of the Texas Hill country.
Llano (/ˈlŠnoʊ/ LAN-oh) is a city in Llano County, Texas,

That would be the correct man for the task. Who is the dirt road guru? I believe Rod knows mainly the paved roads. I would like to take in some dirt roads also.

Lee, not even two hours have went by and you have 6 people confirmed already. I think this is destined to be a big turnout!

You could handle the dirt I bet.

Plus we need someone to create a poster for the bike shops. Looking for that creative person.

There are plenty of interestn places around the area... major landmarks like Enchanted Rock & others

Generally... The county roads south will be mostly paved... The ones north & west...more gravelly/sandy. To the east... paved... & more populated in places.

I have more of a locally noted landmark memory... the old large house sittin back off the road(RR2323 near Prairie Mtn)....
Langes Mill out near Doss... the sign for Oatmeal Tx.... & all my points where I memorized my turns over the years... Paul's Garage sign CR335@CR330... The old windmill @ Moccosin Bend & Weaver Chapel Rd in Coryell Co.

I'll b glad ta put some things ta gether..... I have paved & gravel goodies... jus prefer the pavement when leadn folks around due to the dust factor in groups... but I'm cool with both surface options.
