Available on short notice (super short) for a DS ride with great weather? :sun:

The Ride:
The loop is about 165ish miles and mostly dirt and sometimes pretty loose sand at times. We'll be on our lighter bikes (sub 650cc) for this ride and pace may be swift at times. This route should have some roads we typically don't use for DS so hopefully some newish stuff to some of us. Bring food for lunch on the route. Route subject to change some and may wind up in Llano (for fuel & food). The ideal participant can use a GPS with good way-finding skills.

When & Where:
Saturday, 23rd 10:00am and ready to start the ride at 10:15am
Fredericksburg, TX Walmart parking lot away from storefront nearest 290. (Let's purchase goods from them while there of course)

Your Bike:
Maintained and ready to ride. Slime'd tubes and all that good stuff.

Riders Safety gear:
Bring all your best gear and keep all riders safe and injury free. Have any emergency contact info available if needed.

The planned Loop:

With the prior days rain the dirt/sand roads will likely be nice and packed.

Take note that the route had to be edited a few times. Latest version posted.

Well, some riders can make the large size bikes scoot along pretty quickly. Also, the dirt was in really ideal condition that day. In the end, a 1200 can go down these roads mostly without any problems.
