Re: 3 Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride - Saturday, 1/20/18-Castroville, Te

I just stumbled on this ride opportunity. New to the San Antonio area (1 week new) R1200GS just put on 30/70 tires on spare rims. I am IN hopefully will not get cancelled. Does the ride continue with rain? Also this site http://txadvriders.org/upcoming-even...hapter-events/ says the ride is the Saturday before MLK which is the 13th, a type O? just want to make sure the 20th is solid

Good questions.
It depends on the amount of rain, some rain, yes, all day deluge, no. Of course factoring in the temperature. The stickers are printed with the 20th, so I hope not to move it. I'll be watching the weather and if necessary plan to make a weather call the Wednesday before. However with Texas weather it could be later than that.

This is the main and official thread for information and changes for the 3 Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride - Saturday, 1/20/18-Castroville, Texas ride, that link is for 2017, note bottom right of that page has the 2018 link. Link on the same site for the 2018 edition- http://txadvriders.org/2017/12/12/3-...day-1-20-2018/

The ride was pushed back a week this year for consistency to match the other Adventure Breakfasts, all in 2018 are scheduled for the 3rd Saturday for the month.

Did 228 miles in prep work for medina. Even dropped the new bike on some soft grass under a bridge (no damage). Stupid mistake (isn't it always ) Got the first "off" out of the way. Hit a patch of sand and almost lost it too but got slowed down in time to save it. All and all quiet the adventure (just like it says on the fuel tank )

Hehe, the best part of it all was no one saw me basically was a slow speed off camber u turn at idle and stalled it. Stupid thing was, split second before I saw the rise, I thought, you better keep up the rpm, but then ...

The crash bar did it job

Thatís good thinking, I always need a drink after a crash, bringing your own bar along shows that you have really thought this out!

Another video from last year.




If anyone needs a snack for the ride like jerky or dried sausage or a steak or stuffed quail to cook when camping try www.dziuks.com. Just down the street from the start.

Any suggestions for a spot to sling a hammock either Friday, Saturday, or both?

Camping is available at the Castroville Regional Park, 816 Alsace Street, on the Medina River.

Next closest is probably Government Canyon State Natural Area.

I'm in pending some last minute event shuffling I have to do. Weather is looking great!

I'm not a fast rider so if there's a group of "easy going" types I want in!

Which bike are you riding? I'll be on my DZR, and I know for a fact some other "little" bikes will be there.
