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

Mudslide, kory, gourdhead ... Thanks for the guidance. Will do. It just occurred to me that I actually may already have one loaded on my phone that I may be able to do something with. It's called Maps.me. otherwise will get something that works with .gpx by weeks end

in an effort to not clutter up sanders thread more than i already have, i will just add this commit. I have downloaded the kml tract to the maps.me app on my android phone. The maps.me will not do a turn by turn nav on a downloaded tract that keeps you on the tract but dues allow the compass map following. in other words, you just follow the blue trail and the map app will keep your location centered in the proper orientation so you know that in a certain instance, ie: a left turn would be south and so on . i have all these maps downloaded already in this app so i dont want to start over. in the future, i will have a new Garmin with the sd card support so i can just plug and play (at least i think that how this works )

Dave, I noticed your sig with an '06 Dakar, I just bought one as well. 5300 miles on it. Let's ride.

Been out of the motorcycles for a while now, 2 floods in 18 months. Minor flooding during the tax day and lost everything during Harvey with 5 ft in my house for 2 days. Lost my YZ, my old Dakota 4x4, Z06 Vette, half of my guns with 15k rounds of ammo along with the contents of my house.

Let's do it and let's talk. I've been busy making mine a bit more dirt worthy.

So far, so good. I'm most likely going to make it out with my Ural. I'm thinking I'll be solo on the Ural as my daughter's not all that interested in spending that much time in the cold sidecar.

So, Bill, we could ride together. I'll make sure to have the route programmed into my phone and I'll go at a rate to keep our bikes from falling apart. On that thought, we should get there early and head out on the ride early.

These are the good times, they're looking good so far,
jwaller is loving life, on his brand new KLR.
Got rid of the Ural, that nightmare now is over,
He'll probably get another one when H3LL freezes over.

That will still be moving, you guys have to be some the most spirited paced Ural pilots!

For those that ride fast enough for a lunch break, 2 options.
D'Hanis - Bill & Rosa's KK Steakhouse
Hondo - Hermann Sons Steak House

I heard of roughly 15-20 additional attendees that plan on riding.

That's great! I apologize, thought I read somewhere that jt said that y'all had other obligations, but makes no difference one way or another. Looks like there is going to be a huge turnout!

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle. Make sure yours isn't too tight, or too loose.

Still on and I should be pulling into Sammy's around 8:15. Haven't decided whether I'm going to grab a gas station sandwich for lunch on the trail or hit up a steakhouse for a sit-down lunch. If I do the latter I'm sure I won't finish the full route but that may be okay. Will play it by ear.

Neal, It will be great to see and ride with you again, it's been too long. I am planning to try and get to Sammy's by 8 and have some breakfast. Just planning snacks on the road for lunch. I am hoping that if we keep moving with no lengthy stops we may be able to finish before we have to head home. I made the whole ride last year. - Bill

I don't know if I will be there by 8, but I will not need to eat before we leave.
You did this last year, so you know ALL the turns!! Great.. I printed the maps and turn-by-turn and put it on my phone all for nada.. Well, we have them, just in case!
You set the pace, I try to keep up, and we will see if we make that last leg to the south. I have an alternate route that goes up to Mico if time is short.

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

In case anyone else wants to print turn-by-turn from Google Maps, here are links of the maps I created from Sanders map:
(Maybe there is a way to get turn-by-turn from his map.. but I don't know how without using gpx or something else).

The only difference (I think) is that I could not convince the P5 map to go down 2615 (past Paradise Canyon) instead of 271.

P 1 https://goo.gl/maps/1KbhKKMEgQm 38 miles - fuel in Devine
P 2 https://goo.gl/maps/sskg5BEeZWq 46 miles
P 3 https://goo.gl/maps/vfRJkFfrnB62 44 miles - fuel D'Hanis
P 4 https://goo.gl/maps/Nyn6jH1RmA32 86.5 miles - fuel Hondo at 55 miles- 31 miles on next leg
P 5 https://goo.gl/maps/yFVdp8YhkqQ2 39 miles

Spoke to the manager at Sammy's. She's going to set aside aside a room for us. She's more than happy to separate us from the general population. She's seen the "Wild Ones"...
