Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Winter in Texas mostly means rain. On the weekends. And that's how it's shaping up for this weekend.

No worries, the next ride is Saturday, April 1st. See everyone at that ride.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

It says showers in the afternoon.
Is anyone making this ride?
I don't want to trailer from Houston if no one is riding.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I just checked the 36 hour forecast. It shows showers beginning at 7 am Saturday morning, increasing to light rain by 9 am, and rain at noon through the remainder of the afternoon. Up to a 1/2 inch total throughout the day.

Yes, Richard is planning to ride this Saturday May 6th, and the weather is going to be EXCELLENT

I have a guest coming to town, originally from Poland, his name is Marcin

Richard plans to take him under his wing as Marcin ride my KTM 500 with Richard. Marcin is a former motocross rider but has never been to Texas or seen the Hill Country

I'll have Marcin's wife Kora on the back of my GSA, and she and I will tag team the group the best we can and also try to meet the group for lunch.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Thanks for the update.

Arrr, Can't change the Saturday plans this late....

Are these rides usually the first weekend? If so, I can make sure to leave the first weekends open.

These rides are the first Saturday of every month.

The details and the monthly routes are posted in the first thread in this post.

Hope to see you at the next one.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Great ride, day and people. Dirt and water crossings are always fun. Had some photos but my camera is somewhere on Keyserville Road. Helmet cam confirms one minute there, stood up for some rocks and bumps, sat down. Gone. Didn't notice until we arrived in Castell. Here is one from my phone.

I'll help go look for it in two weeks. That's when the boy ships and my Saturdays will be open.
