Richard, is this route reasonable for a pure cruiser bike?

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

This is my two cents i made most of this route Tuesday going to and coming back from willow city the only spot you might have problems with a all street bike would be middle creek at the water crossing there was only about 1" water there, my riding buddy rides a Harley and made it thru before but he cuss me when we get there. Everybody enjoy what little gravel is left as the county's are chip sealing most all the roads around here that are gravel I was shock when i got up close to willow city not much dirt left that close to here.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Any idea how long is the ride tomorrow?
(I'm concerned about the gas shortage...)

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Guess I just missed the group in Blanco. I went ahead and took the route. Hadn't been down Edge Falls and Acker so that was cool. Will make better plans next month. The sign that said Sharp Curve wasn't kidding.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Great ride!
Many thanks to the Africa twin rider ( sorry. I'm really bad with names) who step in and took the lead.
I had to split up from the group to search for gas, which was challenging.

Love this group!

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Glad yall make it home ok. I was able to fuel up in Dripping Springs. It was scary riding with the fuel light on. It was a great ride with great people. See ya next month.

Ditto. Great to meet some local riders. Thanks to Thomas for taking the lead. I enjoyed riding sweeper for the first half of the ride and turning over turtles before heading back along Yeagher & the airstrip.

Hope to see y'all again in October.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Hey Guys, beautiful day and a good ride, just a little bit of gas anxiety. Happy to hear people made it back without running out of gas. Yesterday was an Africa Twin day, today I'm rebuilding the front forks of the KLR with some Cogent springs. Beautiful day for It too.
Thomas.
