My current plan is to bring my gear with me to work, leave around 7:00 PM on Friday, and ride to Kerrville. Camp at Kerrville Schreiner Park, then meet the group for breakfast in Center Point. Ride with the group to Menard, camp, then ride back to Austin on Sunday, following a leisurely route.

By the way, how dual sporty (sp) is this ride? KTM 500 Exc or KTM 990 Adventure?

That's close to 5 hours from here, you riding over or trailering? Guess it depends on which bike.

I did this route twice last year- I would ride the 500. You would be fine on a 990 as well, but the 500 would be more betterer.

If Rob brings his GS, we may just hang out at the back of the pack with the big bikes. *** reminder, got to get me some new dual sport tires ***

Good ...that way a busted up old guy like me riding a KLR with street tires can ride along too.

Someone who ice races with spiked tires, shouldn't have any trouble with a little Texas dirt.

LOL...no sand, rocks, or deep water crossings. It's a lot easier to ride on the ice than you would think.

I noticed some snow pack in those gloves and the "ice" busters.

Joe,

It's much more adventure than dual sport, unfortunately. Click HERE for what to expect, I posted some videos last year on the ride announcement post. Of course no videos of the boring stuff.

A couple of more on the route for day 2.
