Re: 2012 Texas Adventure Ride & Texas Adventure Challenge, Apr 19-22

Hmm, street only or dual sport capable vintage/small bikes? I think I could come up with a moderately interesting loop up to Ft. McKavett. Only about 110 miles, but at a leisurely pace and some time visiting the Ft., it could be a good day loop.

Re: 2012 Texas Adventure Ride & Texas Adventure Challenge, Apr 19-22

The Harvest Festival had a tiddler run for 200cc or less. I showed up on the SL350 and was not allowed in the run. So I went the same course but opposite direction.

About 2 years ago we had a thread about running tiddlers (200cc) around a lake but it never gelled.

Old street tiddlers with off-road tires is how I got started riding. It must be a lost art.

I'll be riding the TAR part instead of the TAC this year. One of the days I usually end up leading a group of the newer/slower riders just to make sure they have a good time and get an idea of how it works. I'll probably do that again this year. The other day I go have fun on my own

Re: 2012 Texas Adventure Ride & Texas Adventure Challenge, Apr 19-22

OK, now I'm seriously considering this one, we can't do Uncles on bikes, tho we may be there for some hiking to get Lisa's ankle back in shape... so I'm gonna throw out a request for a roomie or rider from the Austin area, because Wayman can't make this one. I Hope to ride with the likes of Arnold or Scott....but would be OK truckin out with somebody from the Austin area if someone needs a trailer. I'm in Elgin, so headed west would be no prob.

Prove it! She hates gravel even more than I do - but I'll have a full custom suspension in my KLR by then...and the Dubbie will be stock. Hope to see you there.

I LOVE gravel!!! And dirt and grass, I don't care for roads at all. I did the "Roll the Bones" in October (my very first rally) and had the time of my life!!!

So....this weekend I'm gonna get my behind in gear and all my ducks in a row (registration and hotel) and I WILL see you there

She handled that gravel pretty well on the way to Peguis Canyon last year.

LOL...never said she wasn't good at it, just that she hated it! It's going to be a blast.

Signed up for TAR today. Will be with 5 other Sidewinders M/C members. Recall we put on the Sidewinders Enduro south of Bastrop for many years until land development pretty much killed it. Will also have our member - Stan Simpson - Chairman of the Board of the AMA with us.

NOTE: Best Western has no more rooms with 2 beds left. Only ones with a Kingsize bed.

Re: 2012 Texas Adventure Ride & Texas Adventure Challenge, Apr 19-22

I have a question:

I just tried to make reservations in Del Rio for the posted rate. And I did mention that I'm with the motorcycle group. They said to me that they don't have anything for that rate or show any group for that weekend.

So, did the rates already go up or did someone have a daft cow moment?

Were you going to do the TAR or TAC? TAR is just doing day loops around Junction. TAC is riding from Junction to Del Rio on a mix of dirt and highway, spending the night, then riding back on other roads. I figured you would just do the TAR and stick near Junction. If you are only doing TAR, then no need for reservations in Del Rio, only Junction. I'm doing TAR, by the way.

Glad I helped clear that up. See you in Junction.
