Re: II Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride - Saturday, 1/14/17-Castroville, T

Looking good for the ride

Drtbik - I feel your pain with Garmin. I struggle with my 64st, but hope it's worked out and will test my work on Saturday. I loaded the track in Basecamp, converted it to a route, & sent to GPS. That way I will have both a "navagatable" route & a track for backup.

If it's not raining when we get up I'll see you guys in the morning.
We will be two-up on a F800GS. Looking forward to meeting some people.

God willing and the creeks don't rise I will be there in the morning. Hope I can find someone with the route that is willing to have me tag along. I'm not a speed demon but like to ride along briskly. Slow can be good too. See everyone in the morning. - Bill

Beautiful dry 69 degree night.

Just got in from visiting with Team Goldthwaite camping at the park.

Re: II Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride - Saturday, 1/14/17-Castroville, T

More whining from this quarter...

Late freight equals late word from work which equaled a delayed departure. I left the house as soon as I got word that I wasn't needed (no surprise there, lol). I was already an hour late. I didn't expect to meet the group, I just wanted some "quality time" on the 690. After 15 minutes on the road, it was raining for real (not the misty, spitty stuff it had been doing all morning), the skies were turning darker and I was chilled to the bone. Time to re-assess...

Right now, I am home, watching radar, ready to head out and catch some riders at a gas stop--Or--not. �� Ah, the best laid plans of mice and men...

And the rain comes down harder...blast it!

Nice ride, nice route, thanks for putting it together! It was nice meeting some of you today, the rain kind of piddled on the ride, but all in all, it was fun!!

My wife and I had a great time riding with you guys. You did a good job setting up the route and organizing the event. Sorry we had to bail out and get something for dinner.

Thanks Sander, KoryJ and I had a great time today.
Actually the weather turned out perfect.
Finished up about 3:30.
Thanks also to RickM for doing a great job leading the way all day.

What a ride!!!

Thank you sanderjavant for setting up/putting this route together. It was great. Once we finished I loaded up and had to get back to Corpus. I wish I could have scored some of the stickers. Any left? I will pay for some.

Thanks to Willstrom and family, Danny boy too for guiding us with their GPS.
It was good to meet and ride with yall.

It was good to meet and ride with you too Texas rabbit.

Hope everybody gets home safe.

Again, kudos to Sander for putting together a great route. I'm always amazed that Sander can find all those little dirt roads! Duane and I bailed about 4:15 and took a short cut back to Castroville for fuel and then home.
