Sad to say that 'Slow Paul' won't make it. Seems I had a 'pavement encounter' back on the 6th and both the bike and I am recovering...

Wish I was going!

Random question. My girlfriend wants to try these routes but on her Jeep. Is this frowned upon? Figure it'd be okay if we tag along (after the whole group).

Or we can try them some other week as well, I suppose.

I wouldn't have an issue with it, as long as there is an ice chest involved :)

Was that you guys stopped for gas this afternoon around 4:00 @ Johnson City?

I saw a couple of KTMs and other motorcycles parked next to the pump. I was on a red scooter passing on the opposite side.

Yes, That was the group I led today. 14 riders showed up to ride this morning so we split into two groups.

We will be discussing the 2019 routes at the Austin 1st Thursday meeting next week. After that I will update the routes/times/dates. Everyone is invited to the 1st Thursday meet and greet.

Thank you all (esp Richard) for a great ride.
The usual thing: great people, great rout and even great weather.
IMHO, that is the best rout from the monthly twelve.

It’s always a pleasure to ride with y’all

Awesome pics, Rich. Thanks for sharing those and for your ride leadership. I was sorry to have to head home early mid–route, but got to enjoy that river crossing a second time on my way back home.

Ugh, sorry to report that 'slow paul' had a pavement encounter on Nov 6th and is out of commission for the foreseeable future. I'm fine, the elderly BMW is not. Post pictures so I can vicariously enjoy the rides. - Paul

Riders,

Welcome to a new year and new rides. The first monthly ride of 2019 is Saturday, Jan 5th. The details are on the first post in this thread.

By request, I have updated the rides for 2019, increasing the length so that all rides are at least 125 miles long. The link to the updated routes is in the first post in this thread.

Had a fun ride with y'all
The little Kawasaki KLX250 was at its limits with speed.
Was a nice run to ensure she is ok for Big Bend trip next month.
See y'all on next one in April (have other commitments till then)

Combine a large group of adventure motorcyclists, multiple road closures due to high water crossings, and rural county law enforcement. We really just wanted to see how high the water was, officer :)
