I think I remember it was deep sand in pockets with water over it hiding what lurks below.

If you stay to the left, it's mostly solid rock bottom. If you go right it's deeper and sandy.

Depending on the direction. Old, fading memory could be an issue.

Re: 2018 Texas Hill Country 500 - Nov 2-4, 2018

I just got back from a quick trip to J.C. And found a single BMW glove sitting on the cement by the new barn. Is anybody missing a single glove?

Yes, the ground almost shook upon its landing. You could hear the bodywork rattle but it took it. He had total control of it. Someone showed me a video freeze pic of its rear suspension being 100% compressed

This was great fun and quite the adventure. The dinner in junction was good too, lots showed up.

That's Jacob from San Antonio. He's a Rawhyde graduate, and is training for the GS Trophy. The things he does on that big bike are just nuts.

Thanks Michael for the memory jog. I declined the course because I wanted to ride the next day, not stuck nursing a broken limb or broken bike
