I'll join you for breakfast but 300 miles of the dirty sisters would be a faster pace than I wish to push. Rode those roads last spring, it's a great route. I'll be riding a shorter version and investigating some of my favorite water crossings to see how they are doing after all the rains. If anyone is looking for a shorter and slower ride they are welcome to join me. - Bill

Sure enough, it was a good crew and a nice variety of bikes.
Enjoyed seeing everyone.

Sorry I was unable to make the breakfast. I was very much looking forward to meeting like minded folks. Out of town work prevented me this time. Weather looked wonderful for the get together.

Pardon me fellows, I didn’t get a chance to properly let y’all know I decided to head back to NB with Justin. Good call, got home just after sunset.

Great ride and I even got on some new dirt roads under my belt.

What a GREAT day!!!

Lots and lots of beautiful water.

The fact that no one went swimming was amazing, great group!

This picture paints the overview of fun. More to come.

Re: Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - Saturday 11/17/18 @ 9a Backyard Bistro - TARA/

Man, ducking out early and Iím still just now getting home. Then again my wife called me when I was in Bandera and arranged to meet me for dinner in Bulverde, so I suppose I could have been home45 minutes ago.

That was a fun ride but Iím sore from all the sphincter-clenching moments in the water crossings. Something learned today: momentum is key to a good water crossing; also, donít follow someone through the water until theyíve made it across, or choose your own line because if they stall or go down, you lose your momentum. I had a very difficult time keeping on two wheels and getting going again because I was following too closely behind Brian on one of those crossings and had to stop.

These are the good times, they're looking good so far,
jwaller is loving life, on his brand new KLR.
Got rid of the Ural, that nightmare now is over,
He'll probably get another one when H3LL freezes over.

JUSTIN, YOU MADE A GOOD DECISION. THERE WAS A TOUGHER, ROUGHER , LONGER SECTION THAN THAT BULLHEAD CREEK ROAD. THE OTHER RIDERS LEFT ME IN THE DUST BUT I ALWAYS MAKE IT THRU EVENTUALLY. HUGE POT HOLES AND WOOPS THAT HAD TO BE CAREFULLY NEGOTIATED WITH MY LOW CLEARANCE VSTROM (DIDN'T WANT A REPLAY OF AROUND THE BEND 2018). ALL THE FILLER HAS BEEN WASHED OUT OF THESE ROADS AND NOTHING LEFT BUT RUBBLE. FUN, BUT HOW YOU SAY, HIGH PUCKER FACTOR.

It was indeed a great day! Loved to see Mark putting his brand new Ducati into the terrain it was meant for. Thanks again to Sander for putting the route together and to all of the other riders for a good time. Randy
