I was surprised at your comments that the Best Western appeared to already be sold out so I called the hotel this morning. They still have about 40 rooms available (and blocked for our event).

When you call the Best Western to make your reservation, make sure you tell them you are with the motorcycle event (Texas Adventure Ride) and want to reserve one of the blocked rooms. If you just ask for a room and don't tell the staff you are attending the event, then they won't allow you to book one of the blocked rooms.

Thanks for this tip. Just got a room at the Best Western with this info and by calling them. I tried to book online a few weeks ago and it showed as sold out. Looking forward to the ride.

Re: Texas Adventure Ride: May 3-6, 2018

We'll be riding from Austin out to Junction for the rally. What's the recommended most scenic/twisty/backroads (slab or dirt) route to take from Austin to Junction?

I'll probably ride out from Austin on the AT via this route.

This could be reasonably interesting, while also being fairly direct

Re: Texas Adventure Ride: May 3-6, 2018

I'd love to be there, but I'm in New Mexico the weekend before, so its iffy. I'll make the decision that week. I would be getting in on Friday night, bike of choice to be decided in the moment. Camping at South Llano, most likely.

That looks like a fun route. Will consider that going there.
