Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Riders,

The 1st Saturday ride is this weekend. As many of you know, the Hill Country 500 is also this weekend.

Even so, the 1st Saturday ride is never cancelled. If you can't make the HC500 but still want to ride, then the first Saturday ride is still on the schedule.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I'm still trying to fix this stupid clutch on my ktm. At this rate, I'll be good to join in March or so.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Do any of the routes posted on the first page of this thread, for the monthly rides, include any off-pavement portions..? If so, which ones? I am from Houston, just looking to try to get some routes from that area from those of you who are already in the know.

October, November, March, April, and I believe May all have off pavement sections.

Remember if they have not been ridden since March, April and May they may be paved now! Every time i ride thru there i find a freshly paved road.

True that. Although with the flooding, the ones that aren't paved are pretty interesting, and even the paved ones are'nt in the best of shape. C'est la vie.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Just a head's up to anyone planning on attending the December ride. Since we missed out on November due to the HC500, I'll likely be leading a ride on the November route, weather permitting.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Attention riders. Due to a group of us having prior commitments on Saturday, we'll be riding the November route on Sunday. Same start point, meet at 8:30, KSU at 9:00.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Sad to say that 'Slow Paul' won't make it. Seems I had a 'pavement encounter' back on the 6th and both the bike and I am recovering...

Wish I was going!

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Random question. My girlfriend wants to try these routes but on her Jeep. Is this frowned upon? Figure it'd be okay if we tag along (after the whole group).

Or we can try them some other week as well, I suppose.

I wouldn't have an issue with it, as long as there is an ice chest involved

Just to be clear, Gourdhead means an ice chest full of cold, enticing liquids. Throwing an old, empty ice chest in the Jeep just isn't going to cut it.

December route is all paved, but you're welcome to run the November route with us on Sunday.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Does it mean that there is no riding tomorrow?
Does the Nov route (the one you gonna ride on Sunday) have some off-road sections?
