I plan on rolling in from the East side of Houston to join you, so I will be at the Buc-ee's for the 9am hook up. First time for me to ride the area, so I am glad there will be someone who has ridden out there before to lead the way. :thumb:

You should have dropped the plate off at my house. I could have rode to New Braunfels and handed it off. COME ON MAN !

I stopped at the shop I bought the bike at and got another paper tag. Thanks. I guess just toss the one you found.
Will do. I just saw your list of bikes in your sig line. Don’t let your current KLR see it....LOL
Hope to see you out again.

Looks like y'all have some good riding out there. I'll have to drag myself out of bed early enough at some point and join y'all! Maybe when it starts cooling off a bit.

I've never been out there before and I'm thinking about going this Saturday. I'll be at Bucee's at 8:30am filling up if anyone wants to join. Shoot me a message if you want to join

Anyone interested in heading out to the Bastrop trails tomorrow, Sunday, I'll be heading out of New Braunfels at about 7:00 and should make Bastrop by 8:00. I can meet up at the Buc-Ees in NB before 7:00 and then again in Bastrop at about 8:00.

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

^^^^^^^

Nice!

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.

I would love to do this ride sometime! How often do y'all do it & how long does it last? I live in Pasadena so I would truck my bike to Bastrop.

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?

The best riding is in the fall, why slack off then?
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 11:30 :)

Can I leave a truck at bucees ? Maybe I should just call bucees.Hope to be there.
I park at the soccer field across the street from Bucees. We used to meet at the fields before Bucees was there. There are a couple of nice shade trees you can park under.

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?

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'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? ;-)

Plan on coming along on the October and November TARA rides. They are much more Strom friendly.

The 250 it is! Looking forward to the ride. Hope to see everyone at Bucee's before 9:00 AM in the morning! Thanks for insight!

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 .02
