Online reservations show the hotel full because we have booked the hotel for the rally. You can't make an online reservation.

There are rooms available for rally attendees. You must call the hotel and tell them you are with the rally to get one of those rooms.

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

Riders,

A reminder - early registration ends next Wednesday, April 18th.

This year's commemorative item is a embroderied baseball cap. I will be ordering the caps on Thursday morning, April 19th to ensure enough time to receive them before the rally. The quantity is based on the # of people who register (I'm not a retail store so I don't order extras and keep them in stock).

Your early registration ensures you receive the hat.

If you register after April 18th I can not guarantee you will receive a hat.

The bottom line - register now if you are planning on attending and want to ensure that you received the hat.

My apologies for the error. I should have caught that.

This does bring up a related reminder for new TAR riders to (1) slow down through ranch property with houses that are cut by public roads and (2) to remember to stick to public roads and do not ride off road on private land. This event has had a great track record with only minor infractions of these rules but even minor transgressions on private land reflect poorly on the whole group. Transgressions involving property owners rarely happen but when they do they're memorable, I'll just put it that way.

Well let's see, what will I be riding? From my stable of bikes, I think I'll go with my favorite, the 2016 Super Tenere. Of course my "stable" has just one bike in it, making the Super T my "favorite".

Seriously, thanks for asking, and I am looking forward to the ride after reading somewhere that the routes are "big bike friendly".
