My usual offer is in effect, post ride lunch on me at Easy Tiger, for anyone who wants to do an adventure ride through downtown Austin.

Riders,

The first Saturday ride is this coming weekend, Saturday, Feb 3rd. We will be riding 140 miles of hill country backroads and twisties, riding a loop to Luckenbach and back.

All riders are invited to attend.

See everyone on Saturday.

I am really going to try and make this ride, been far too long since I have been on a bike let alone with the group. I am supposed to be back in time for an afternoon baby shower. Who invites guys to baby showers anyway? I am so confused, maybe my feminine side is becoming predominant !!!

I would ride the twin but she still has a TCK80 up front from Colorado and I don't have time to change it. Guess i will just buzz a little more than normal.

Richard, I don't think I've been on one of your rides since January 2009. :brainsnap I'm going to plan on this though. Need to exercise my new CRF250L.

Well, plans have changed and I can't make the ride tomorrow. I need to work on the barn in Johnson City, installing the A/C. Stop by and say hello if you can. Mike

In!

Anyone have a spare speedometer cable for a gen2 KLR 650? My cable housing unscrewed itself on I-35 last week and then no more cable. Will trade for cash.

Cable or no, I'm still showing up.

I had a great time.
The twisties were better than Tail of the Dragon and the Three Sisters combined.
thanks Richard.
It was good meeting everyone.

Fantastic extended ride yesterday with great roads and route. I didn't take any photos but I'll put up a short video soon.

The first Saturday Austin monthly ride is this weekend.

Our March ride is the Willow City Loop course and includes the first dirt of the year (Sandy Creek). My guess is that with the amount of rain we've had over the past few weeks that there will be water at the 2 low water crossings over Sandy Creek. This month's course is 139 miles in length and is suitable for any dual sport/adventure bike.

I recommend grabbing lunch at Oli's Kitchen in Round Mountain on the loop back. Gas is available from the convenience store next door to Oli's.

Hey Richard, I think I will actually be free this coming Saturday and would love to see if I can ride anymore. With any luck I will see you this coming Thursday at twin peaks and again this Saturday!

Is this route "ADV" bike friendly? or would a Smaller bike be a better choice?
Keith, do you know where you are meeting the group? I am leaving from Bulverde area if I can make the trip.

OOPS, just reread the description. I will try it on an ADV bike. What the heck
