For the record. I thought that route was awesome. Probably the best riding day I've had this year, and I've had some good ones. I'd like to do it again now that it's cooler and finish it. I was sorry to have had to bail out at the halfway point due to wearing full textile gear and getting really hot.

Back to this thread...I may join you on Saturday if it rains any more between now and then. If it stays dry, GLFlyer just got a new to him Ten and we're going to try and find some dirt roads to get them aquainted. Then again....we may just join you and then ride some dirt after the ride is over.

It was the best riding I've done to date, I just like ribbing Mac a little

Hope you come out. Mac knows where all the good dirt roads are out there in the Maypearl area. And I'm sure he could be talked into going down some of them.

Maybe I should bring the Africa Twin instead

With that KTM, you probably did them so fast you missed them. They aren't that bumpy when you just hit the tops of them at speed....

With a my GS...I had to slow down a bit and make sure I didn't make a taco or pancake. I like tacos and pancakes, but not with my front wheel.

Dave, if you are in, I would show up for the ride.
I'd like to chat a bit about Red River ...

Or if you and Bob decide on a more dirt oriented trek, I might bring the dirt bike to ride.

Red River or dirt roads, I need to shake mini me down a bit for some upcoming Big bend treks.

I was going to Walnut Saturday, but after yesterday's 1.5" of rain, I imagine it'll be a bit slick.

Re: Venus to Maypearl the long way

I planned on this being an easy meandering pace on the back roads with a little bit of gravel here and there. Now afterwards we could maybe find some more dirt but a lot of that area is that black gumbo stuff everyone hates.

Re: Venus to Maypearl the long way

Hey,

Dave was just filling me in on the details.

I'm definitely in since I need to shake down my new (to me) S10. Wouldn't mind a few extra dirt roads thrown in to properly break her in.

Heck... I took the wing off road last time, so the Ten shouldn't be a problem. That was a good thing I did too... since Dave's Zumo popped off and since I was following him, I was able to retrieve it. I guess the wing handles dirt roads better than the GS??

I'm good with that.

I was just informed that both my grandkids are spending the weekend with us.
So my plans are now tentative.

I understand Phil. It's been a while and would love to ride with you again if it works out.

Re: Venus to Maypearl the long way

I just found out I have houseguests on Saturday. Apparently my Mom is coming in town and staying with us and nobody told me.

Anyway...I'm still going to ride but I may not have as much time afterwards to play as I thought. We'll see how it goes...probably should be home by 1 or 2 at the latest or I'll get stink eye.

Re: Venus to Maypearl the long way

I was going to stick with the plan and then if GLFlyer and Dave along with anyone else wanted to hunt out some more dirt roads after we could. Your new bike should work just fine for the original plan. The "dirtiest" road on the route is Bee Creek Rd.

Re: Venus to Maypearl the long way

Anyone doing breakfast? If so, are you eating at the Whataburger or somewhere else?

If so, what time?

Not saying I'm in for breakfast....but I'll probably eat something and showing at the Whataburger around 8:30 might be pretty easy for me.
