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.

You’ll feel so much better after the ride, that you will enjoy the shower. OK, you’ll tolerate it in good spirits!

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.

From the way back machine:

I'll be there, and I'm seriously considering riding my wife's Rebel 250. It needs to get the dust blown off it.

I really want to join this one, but I have something scheduled to afternoon.
Any clue on when we’ll be home?

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.

Right now where I live it's cloudy and slightly damp, but doesn't appear to be raining. I live down the street so I'll be showing up regardless.

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.

Does anyone have a map of the extended route? I'd love to hit it sometime on a bike that isn't the Rebel :)

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!

+1 for Oli's. JT and I were impressed with this place.

Sadly, I'm pretty sure I will be working Saturday:'(

Sound great. I'll review the route and try to figure out the best place to hook up with the group.

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

I'm going to hook up with the group just past Johnson City at 1323 and 281. I'll get there around 9:30 - 9:45.

I'm pretty sure 962 is on the Route back home. Richard, can you confirm this?
Yes, that is correct. We are riding 962 back to Austin.



For the ride out in the morning, Kman's best bet is to intercept us at 281 & 1323.
