My neighbor recently bought a BMW800GS, I noticed this morning he has his original TKC80 Twinduros out on the curb for the Bulk trash pickup. They are the 90/90 19 and 140/80 17. Unfortunately they won't fit either of my bikes. I hate to see them trashed as they probably only have about 500 miles on them. He pulled them off in favor of 80/20 tires. PM me for the location, I'll try and pull them into my garage tonight!

Re: Austin Monthly Meet & Greet

Lol. Idk. 14 or 15. My bike broke just as we ran up on you .


I remember that. You skidded to a stop next to me as I was beginning to try and stop my float from flooding. You skidded to a stop because your strap had caught in your sprocket after your tool kit fell off. We used my tools to extract your strap. You went back down the trail and found your tools. Came back and helped me fix my bike! I finally recognized that scrape on my header!

Hi Guys, what was the final decision, Buffalo Wild Wings or Opal Divines? My vote is for Opal Divines.

I'll put some cones out for the bikes on the East facing side of our new deck if I get a chance to snag them before the hotel guests do. We're real easy to get to if you are coming from the East, North or South.
Coming from the East take Oltorf across I35 and take a right on Live Oak which is just a few feet beyond the Southbound Frontage road, then take the first right into the Best Western lot. Our entrance faces Live Oak, you will have just ridden by the front of the restaurant.
Coming from the South take the Oltorf exit off I35 turn left on Oltorf and follow the directions above. From the North take the Oltorf exit and then pull into the Best Western lot before you get to Oltorf.
Now coming from the West you can attempt to turn left onto Live Oak at the Oltorf I35 intersection but it can get a little iffy some times. Best bet is to route your self to the Southbound I35 frontage road either at Woodland or Mariposa and then turn into the Best Western Parking lot.
Look forward to seeing everyone and Thanks for choosing Opal's!

The Facebook event listing for this still shows BWW as the location. Can someone edit it? I'd hate to see people wind up at the wrong place.

I really enjoyed the change of venue to Michael's place.

Opal Divine's is a really enjoyable location and much more meaningful than the corporate/cookie cutter/factory Buffalo WW.

Just my opinion. It made the drive from San Antonio worth it.

Riders,

The 1st Thursday meet and greet is this week, Thursday night, 6 pm - 8 pm. Remember, we have moved to Opal Divines.

All riders are welcome and encouraged to join us.

Ride your motorcycle if you want. Drive your car if that works better for you.

The main point is to get together, make new friends, visit with old friends, and talk about dual sport adventure motorcycling.

We will meet in Opal Divine's Austin Grill (inside the Best Western hotel) in south Austin.

Thanks for having me folks, it was nice to hear people so passionate about riding!
Rough commute home, even by my standards. The fog and blowing drizzle from Coupland to Thorndale was downright dangerous......but a nice short adventure for the ole KLR.......:sun:

We were happy you were able to attend and even more pleased that you made it home okay.

See you at the next one.
