Planning has begun for the second South of San Antone dual sport ride.
this will likely be a monthly deal, with work, family the ranch, Ionly have so much time to devote to planning/routing/pre running(yes I plan to start pre running these routes). if someone ants to offer up routes to make this more often have at it!

3/10/19 a route has been made.
we will head generally south from my gate, through union valley, pandora, gillett, harmony, and helena. we will use Nordheim as a lunch/ turn around sport. Edgar and Gladys Cafe was a good sport to eat during the original eagle ford boom, im sure it is still great. from there we willl head back up north through cotton patch, garfield, new davy, old davy(yes, you read that correctly) to nixon(the husky will need gas!) which the folks who rode down can use as a highway hub to get home, then a few miles back through union valley to my gate for the rest of us.

if saturdays work better than sundays let me know, actually. lets make a poll

here is the gpx. let me know if you have any issues

The roads will be muddy, but they do have a bottom. If anyone wants to trailer, there’s plenty of room to park.

This sounds like fun and I just might be able to make it. How many miles do you plan on riding ? Do you have a lunch spot in mind ? Did I miss the departure time ? What would you say is the average speed on gravel roads ?

10 am(edited original post to reflect this, let me add up mileage stand by. it should be sloppy, so slow enough we dont fall in the mud. southtex and I usually run around 40-50 in the dry. jmz says the rodeo is a good lunch spot.

If its muddy, my motto will be the "go ahead, I'll catch up at the crash site" phrase.

Do you happen to have a gpx for this btw ?

If the roads are the same roads used on the Lone Star Loop, I did those a few weeks ago and found a couple spots where I had difficulty. That is probably more to do with the fact that I was by myself and new to riding in mud, so I was probably over cautious. I don't know. At one spot, pretty close to Gonzales, I tried to get toward the side, out of the ruts and all that, but found the mud to be super slick and over ankle deep. Slick like drilling mud, but that black gumbo sort of thick, sticky mess. I didn't go down, but nearly did. I got myself in a bind where I stalled in the mud and being a bit short-legged for the KLR, didn't have the confidence to try to get back going on the bike. In shame I got off the bike and extracted myself and bike from that mess by walking beside the bike and using the throttle and clutch to get the bike out under power.

Going out there again with a group sounds like a lot more fun. Count me in.

I hope you can make it Justin. I'm pretty hopeless when it comes to mud and sand. We can struggle together.

The gpx is good . It came right up in OsmAnd
