Rain date information will be posted on the Thursday before the ride if necessary.

Right now the weather looks good, we all know Texas weather though.

Sat FEB 24 Partly Cloudy
70°46° 20%
Mostly cloudy skies early will become partly cloudy later in the day. High around 70F.

Sun FEB 25 Partly Cloudy
72°48° 0%

I remember riding to Junction for the Texas Adventure Ride in the rain one Friday afternoon, all on pavement. While I was checking in the motel the rain stopped and we went out for a ride 30 minutes later on mostly caliche and the conditions were great. Only having ridden a little of the route when damp I can't vouch for all of it. But as always if something looks bad we can always route around it.

I always hope for some moisture the week before a ride, keeps the dust down and traction up.

Looks good to me. I love water crossings. Here's hoping I'm not stuck in WV working!

So, we are now under a week, and weather looks good-ish. Me and Elio are splitting a campsite in Kerrville on Friday night, anybody else planning on being there? Elio should be there around 4, I won't get there till 10.

I think I can make this happen. If so, I'll head to kerrville-schreiner park on Friday, probably be there around 6pm.

Was thinking about riding out from SA on the klr...since there’s no stop for lunch, I was going to throw a sandwich in the milk crate and call it a day.

Riding shinko 705’s (80/20) at the moment, but assuming I can make do.

Been out of town for 8 months so trying to get the gal rideable. Count me as a “maybe” for a few days.

How many people are eating breakfast at Los Dos Amigos Saturday morning?

Jose at the restaurant asked so he could set up some tables.

Have you ridden a 705 on dirt/gravel? A lot of guys (myself included) have sworn them off, way too squirmy. Again, this is not just my sentiment. Not trying to freak you out- but if you have front knobbie, I would throw that on. I just switch the front only on one of my bikes to a TKC80 and it made a word of difference, the back is still a 705. In fact, I like it in the rear (whoa there!) cuz it slides around a bit in corners.

If you are camping in Kville friday, and have a knobbie front, bring it and we can change it if you like.
