Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - Saturday 7/21/18 @ 9a Los Dos Amigos - TARA/SA


A Texas Adventure Riders Association
San Antonio Chapter Event


Come to breakfast, meet and talk with other like minded individuals. Some will also go for a ride afterward, others ride home, get out on your bike and join us for either or both.

Los Dos Amigos Restaurant
322 FM 480
Center Point, TX 78010
Google map



Post Breakfast Ride Information

If anyone is up for a post breakfast ride see the optional route map below. Groups usually take off before 10am. The route is a no host self-guided GPS ride, as the ride is self-guided join a group or lead one.

The post Adventure Breakfast rides are all about fun, camaraderie and being safe. Some groups will focus on completing the route, others will just relax and ride to their cut off time then break off and head home.

A group size of 4 - 6 ride is optimal, with about a maximum of 8, grouping by bike size or desired pace is also beneficial if possible.

Rain date information will be posted on the Thursday before the ride if necessary.

Route information & Map
*Disclaimer - I build the routes on my computer using the Roads of Texas map book as my guide which is the best and most accurate I have used, but not perfect, and Furkot's mapping program. So the route may not be 100% accurate. I do not pre-ride the route, it's an adventure for me also. Road closures, legal status, conditions and routing of county roads can change. If in doubt, turn around and find another route - DO NOT trespass. If a landowner says you are on private property, don't argue, politely ask for directions to get back to a public road.

Depart Los Dos Amigos Restaurant, 322 FM 480,Center Point, TX 78010 10:00 am or so
69.6 miles / an hour 32 minutes to Lone Star Motorcycle Museum - Lunch - 11:36 am
Note - The cafe will be closed after 2014. We will still have cold drinks, ice cream, and chips.
12:36 pm - 72.2 miles / an hour 36 minutes to Bandera, TX, United States - 2:08 pm or so
Distance: 141.5 miles



For those that join my group
When I lead a group I dont stop for lunch in a restaurant, I'm in the office all week so when I'm on a ride I want to spend as much time as possible in nature. I plan a stop about midway out in the country for snacks or a sandwich I bring with me, then of course there are the planned fuel stops.

I stop at every corner without a clear / obvious direction to continue and wait for the entire group and make sure the last rider sees the proper way to go, there is NEVER a need to ride above your comfort level to keep up, we wont leave you, I encourage riders to spread out to avoid the dust. The daisy chain method also works well, especially when its extremely dusty to keep the group even more spread out, the rider in front makes sure the rider behind makes the corner and so on until the sweep rider makes the corner. As long as the rider in front takes responsibility for the rider behind no one gets lost. However please tell someone in the group if your plans change and you decide to break off from the group, that prevents you being searched for.

Safety and rider etiquette
Having your emergency contact information on you and having that information readily available is critical. This is important not just for group rides but everyday. Even though you may have a buddy along on the ride you may get separated on the road.
At minimum:
Name
Your street
Your town, state, Zip code
Driver's license # & state
Emergency contact
Emergency Phone
I taped mine on the bottom of the visor of my dual sport helmet, I also taped another on the back side of my fairing near the dash. The important thing is that it is easy for anyone to find.

Respect landowners and other road users, slow down and ride quietly when passing, people, vehicles, animals, homes, etc.

Sander,

There are a couple of interesting "side routes" off 39. Not dirt, but still nice diversions.

https://goo.gl/maps/MvhoSZUCvnm

The crossing on Rio Vista is probably wet, (at least I have never seen it dry). It is paved, and can be a bit slimy, and is pretty long, and comes with a Warning Sign that says "NO Motorcycles. Slippery Bridge"

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle. Make sure yours isn't too tight, or too loose.

He'll probably get another one when H3LL freezes over.

I dunno about this. Going to be VERY hot out there. I might make it to lunch and then just keep going and get back on 337 and back to town. Unfortunately, I will miss ALL the dirt by doing that. We shall see what tomorrow brings!
