I got up at 6:00 to do an oil change before the ride and also took the time to replace a weeping gasket which took a bit longer than I had anticipated. Maybe next time

We had 14 riders at the start, and after putting it to a vote, we decided to do the March alt ride, including Willow City, Keyserville Road, Castell, CR104, and Sandy Creek to finish. Final score:

Bikes dumped in water crossings-2 (including Jorge's new GS 1250 twice. Sorry man)
Bikes dumped in the deep sand on Keyserville-1. New rider on a Africa Twin, with the 80/20 stock tires. He was a trooper though.
Bikes buried in the Llano river-1, but we dug it out.
Bikes dumped in creek beds trying to bypass road construction-1. Rider and bike were both fine.

Final tally, 7 riders at the finish. Every one with a smile on their face :) I'll let Elio post pictures, he's in charge of that kind of thing.

Great time in the hill country, and an amazing wildflower-laden series of roads. Willow City was new to me and it was amazing. Thanks to Mike for leading and for everyone who helped pick up bikes and the spirits of the riders who had unfortunate drops. Glad everyone finished happy & healthy.

SAB and I want to ride tomorrow, but we will be starting from Kerrville. Is there going to be a group riding the suggested track, or do you guys think you'll do something different?

Five of us rode the Marble Falls loop. Sorry to have missed JT’s message the night before about meeting up, otherwise we’d have coordinated a rendezvous point & time.

Good times had by all (I think). Dined in Burnet for lunch & then explored some trails near Lago Vista until one rider had a little electrical gremlin. Of course it happened during the hottest part of our ride! But we got the bike going and everybody heading home to cool off.

not to worry, we wanted to meet up with the group for lunch, but we posted rather last minute.

we did a fun ride-my favorite bit:16 thru the canyons to Medina, 337 to Vanderpool, then over the 'mountains' to Leakey. fuel and a cool drink then down to Concan and over by Garner SP.

near Utopia, we cooled off in one of our favorite creeks. home by about 4. traffic was light all day.

we were surprised we had the creek to ourselves.
