Well now - Back to back rides Sat & Sunday?

JT — You think the roads will not be swamped with mud from today’s soaker?
FYI. I believe there is more dirt on the Sunday ride. After the rains it should be ...nice!

I downloaded your track. It shows straight line point to point rather than actually following the route. Am I doing something wrong or is that the way it is suppose to look?
@flipper- Are you going to be at either ride this weekend? Did you ever get your throttle lock figured out? Yesterday I came across a Vista Cruise that I had forgotten about, new in opened package. If you are coming out, and need it, I can bring it.

Saturday there may still be too much mud. I think it'll be great Sunday, just a few muddy spots, just enough to splash your riding partner when sh.., he's not looking.

Just to be clear, Trailboss is riding Sunday too. He is leading the group out of Austin.

Trailboss, Richard, will lead a group starting at the Texaco, intersection of Hwy 12 and Hamilton Pool Rd/3238 North of Dripping Springs and turning around at Castell.

SpiritAtBay and I will ride Sunday from Kerrville up to Fredricksberg and turning around at Castell. Two separate rides on Sunday.

Plus tomorrow 5-5-18, Saturday Austin TATA Monthly Ride (This thread) is on schedule. It is mostly pavement, hill country, big bike friendly 220+ miles of fun. At least I am planning to ride up to start point and find out ???

The first Saturday ride is never cancelled. It is always on.

What if the weather is bad? The ride still occurs. There is a chance you may be the only rider to show up, but the ride is never cancelled. This way, no matter what the weather forecast, those riders who want to ride always have a scheduled ride.

What if there is an event (such as a rally) scheduled for that same weekend? The first Saturday ride is still on. This way, no matter what other rides/rallies might be occurring, those riders who aren't attending the other ride/rally have a scheduled Saturday ride they can attend.



Any other rides (like the one I'm leading on Sunday and the one JT is leading on Sunday) are in addition to the Saturday ride, not a replacement for the Saturday ride.

Started a little foggy, but it turned into a beautiful day to ride. I'll see everybody tomorrow for either me and Julie's ride or Richard's.

Sorry you missed it Ken. Great ride today.
Yes, Ken, I'm sorry you couldn't attend. The weather was perfect and the dirt roads were primo. There was even water in Sandy Creek. :sun:

What do you call it when your gps doesn't work, you bushwack across someone's ranch, lose your wallet, and barely make it home on the gas in your rotopax? A fine day of dual sport motorcyclng :) Great time today guys.

So that's why Ropeburn was so happy to arrive at Castell! :lol2:

Was a fine day for a little dual sporting. Dirty Sally has been rubbing it in 3Oh's nose all evening. I'm sure I heard her telling 3Oh, "I got to go and you were stuck here under your blankie all day. Nya nya nya na! And, "You should have seen me on Kaiserville Rd, I kicked butt!"
