Re: Gandbury West Run November 18, 2017

No camping gear or skill so thinking about iron-manning this. Head out at 6am on Saturday and then head home afterwards. Long day but the weather looks decent. A bit chilly for the ride down for sure.

Let me give it some thought......

Chris, we will meet you at the campground, i didnt know which direction you were going. We will leave around 6:30.

Copb8, you are welcome to ride down with us. Meet at 183 and Precinct line at the QT at 6:30? I am on a NC700 Gary is on a GSA. We will be camping in Granbury Saturday night at David's place.

Re: Gandbury West Run November 18, 2017

Thanks Misterk. Since I'm definitely not camping either night I'm now thinking about trucking the 690 down to Granbury and doing the ride on that. I assume since it's a lot of dirt roads the 690 will be adequate to keep up with the group.

Re: Gandbury West Run November 18, 2017

The 690 will have no issues keeping up, we have many 250's and 450's. The 690 will fit in well.

Re: Gandbury West Run November 18, 2017

Just saw how close the route gets to Strawn. I might 'accidentally' get lost along the way and have to have some chicken fried steak at Mary's!

Re: Gandbury West Run November 18, 2017

Chris, is there a postal address for where we are meeting? your route will be loaded into my motorcycle GPS, but my ford GPS doesn't read tracks and routes, i need an actual address for it. If you could give your friends actual address then I can just enter that into the GPS otherwise I will try and find it on the GPS in the car and put a marker to navigate to?

Regards Gary

Hey Paco, glad you're going to make it. Are you riding home Saturday night or staying in Granbury?
