Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - Saturday 11/17/18 @ 9a Backyard Bistro - 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.

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



BACKYARD BISTRO
830-535-4094
167 Panther Ridge Rd
Pipe Creek, TX 78063-5195
www.backyardbistrobandera.com

Located directly behind Country Accents Antiques on Hwy 16 South.



Post Breakfast Ride Information

If anyone is up for a post breakfast ride see the optional route map below. Groups usually take off around 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.
__________________________________________________

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 MotoWhere'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.

Distance: 269.2 miles


__________________________________________________

For those that join my group
When I lead a group I donít 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 wonít 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.

I'm going to round up the group that went with me to OST last month and escort them all the way to Pipe Creek. And if Flaming Lodge is not able to go, I might take his 250. If he goes, then it is the ADV Vespa.

OOPPSS, forgot about a previous engagement on the 17th. So I will be with you in spirit!

This will be the last post breakfast adventure ride of the year.

There will be a December breakfast, but the ride afterward will be dirt only. So much so I'll be trailering out my 2 stroke. More info coming next month...

I'm intrigued... I've never ridden in the hill country, but may consider trailering down from Midland for an all dirt ride. I'll be watching for the December date and details.

Sander
Would you say this is all asphalt or mix dirt and asphalt?
If all asphalt I will probably switch to motard wheels and tires.
Thanks

Dan,

A mix. Unfortunately less than 50% dirt, some good dirt though,and good asphalt.

Dirt - Old School, Kyle Ranch, Wimans Creek, Bullhead, Hackberry, Lower Sabinal, Seco Valley (some is now paved).

Asphalt - Three Sisters, 470, 1050, etc.

Like you mentioned more and more county roads are getting paved as the hill county populates.

I am getting where I hate seeing the equipment parked on these roads because I know they are there to make "improvments" such as chip seal . We better take advantage of this resource of dirt roads while there's still time.

I'm overcoming a pretty severe head cold. We'll see if Dr. Wifey will let me out to play this weekend.

Sander, with a full day of riding like this planned, is your pull-out time still 10:00?
Thanks, Randy

Randy,

Probably earlier, when whoever is joining my group is ready.

The stops during the ride will be fewer and shorter, shorter lunch break as well.
