Top off your coolant, lube your chain, and strap on your armor, because its Bastrop time again. Saturday morning (8-04). Meet at the Texaco, 14400 FM 969, Austin, TX 78724 at 8:15 to ride out, or Buc-ee's in Bastrop at 9:00. KSU @ 9:15. BBQ after.
Justin, And your wife would kill you if you didn't.^^^^^^^
Should have joined you yesterday but couldn't. It was slick out there today. I was only out there for a few minutes and decided against it since I was by myself and since I'm still a rookie riding 2 wheels on dirt, particularly mud. Discretion being the better part of valor and all that.
Looks like a great place to ride! I live in Pasadena, so if I wanted to come ride here how do I get there? Is this inside Bastrop State Park?Made it out to Bastrop on Saturday before the big rain storm on Saturday afternoon for a little solo action. Trails were a little wet, but much easier than I expected after reading about ‘em for so long. Gonna head out there again after the next big rain to have a little fun in the mud

With the weather cooling off, it will be easier to get out on longer rides later in the day. Bastrop is fun, but its main draw is proximity to Austin. We can get in two hours of riding and still be drinking iced tea in air conditioning by 11:30The best riding is in the fall, why slack off then?
I've seen Africa Twins and 1090s out there, so its big bike ride-able, but from a fun factor, I recommend the 2-fiddy. We are considering a big bikes only "Pigs in Dirt" day at some point in the fall.I'm from the San Antonio area and have been riding dual sport for some time and have never ridden the Bastrop area. Would like to join you on 08/25 if possible. Sounds like an intriguing ride and very rarely can you go wrong with BBQ! I ride a Super Tenere, but also have a CRF250L for my more challenging play time. Sounds like the CRF may be suited better for this ride?
Plan on coming along on the October and November TARA rides. They are much more Strom friendly.I've been watching this thread for a while and wondering if I dare try these roads on my V-strom 1000. I have been riding street for a while, but am just starting to ride unpaved roads. I might start looking for a small dualsport this fall.
Is there a remedial group for these rides?
The 250 it is! Looking forward to the ride. Hope to see everyone at Bucee's before 9:00 AM in the morning!

This is right beside Bucee's in Bastrop. Personally, I wouldn't drive/ride all the way from your place to here just for these trails. Don't get me wrong, it is fun, but I wouldn't want to drive 5 hours round trip to ride for an hour and a half. Just my .02Looks like a great place to ride!
