Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

We are going to be in Cloudcroft and perhaps do a rain dance
Actually It always seems to rain at least once while I am there, so they may be in luck.

At least we are getting out of the inferno for a few days

FYI: every monthly route, distance, and GPS file is in the first post in this thread.

This month is the Marble Falls route and it is 98 miles long.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I'm going to try and join this one. It will be my first ride with this group. Is there any dirt or gravel on this route?

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

The Ride with start at the usual place the corner of Hwy 12 and Hamilton Pool Rd (Hwy 3238). The route proceed out to Marble Fall and then back down 1431 to Lime Creek Rd (very nice twisty) to Captial of Texas Hwy 360 everyone will split up from there.

It does not look like there are any gravel or dirt roads on the route for July, not sure though.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Just checked it out on Google Maps and it looks like Burnham Ranch Rd/County Rd 405 is dirt and gravel.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Getting ready right now. I guess I'll see y'all in a bit. Won't mind a bit of rain on the ride, but hope there's very little lightning, or better yet, none.

Got rid of the Ural, that nightmare now is over,
He'll probably get another one when H3LL freezes over.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Planning to leave New Braunfels by 7:30 to get there at 8:30 or shortly after and then my wife got up and we started talking. Next thing I know, it's almost 8:00. I have the bike all packed up with water and ice and everything I might need if the clouds lift and it ends up getting hot. I go to start the bike and nothing. For that last two weeks, I've been on the road (in a van) going to Ft. Sill for my son's boot camp graduation and then up to Rapid City South Dakota to help my daughter move back to Texas. Last time I rode my bike was two weeks ago with the San Antonio Dual Sport group. In the last two weeks, I left an iphone charging cable plugged into an auxiliary port. It must have drained my battery. I tried bump-starting my bike but it was no use. Ultimately, I gave up and then jumped it. So I ended up not leaving New Braunfels until 8:30 and made it to the Texaco by 9:27 but everyone had already left. I headed out on the route solo, hoping to catch up. I got to some ranch road by Marble Falls and the gate there was locked. I detoured around that and kept on the ride until the weather got really bad around Austin. I had already spent about 10 minutes basically sitting on the road in the pouring rain due to a traffic jam/wreck. I got off FM 1431 at US 183 and headed for home. Just got home at about 1:00 pm. Too bad I was late. But I still enjoyed my ride, rain and all. Just not the traffic around Austin.
