I might be doing that for the breakfast ride as makeshift storage, we can start a trend.

Thanks Sander, it looks like the 990 may be the right tool. But it kinda makes me wish I hadn't gotten rid of the KLR!

Cedar Creek and it's water crossings on a loaded Tenere is no fun, as was my case last month.

Reservation made at Hill Top in Menard. She said she has three more non-smoking rooms available.

SANDER...

thats a clean ride

1. A very impressive custom vehicle, such as a limousine, tour bus or racing car, with high end accessories. 2. A professionally delivered level of service, particularly involving custom vehicles, that produces high quality results for customer satisfaction. 3. A very intense and exciting experience.

Well, current 10 day forecast has a 50% chance of rain midweek in both Kerrville and Menard.

Watching the weather also. The forecast changes day to day, sometimes hour by hour. I'll look at the forecast/radar on Friday 23rd and go from there.

Yes , it seem to be updated for sure. You say no, I'm saying not to bad after all according to AccuWeather. Thinking will be better than the medina ride

https://m.accuweather.com/en/us/mena.../335844?day=13

This is like predicting the d day invasion ,of course without all the greatest defenders of our country.

She's not requiring you to smoke in the other rooms though, eh?

So, at what point will a weather decision get made? I don't know these roads, how muddy do they get?
