Just spent 4 days in BB. Make sure you hit Old Roy Orbison Road. Nice and challenging under current conditions. Stay out of Marfa, unless you just like spending $25 for a chicken salad sandwich.
Marfa no longer even exists IMO! What the heck is happening to TX?

Well, it's actually 'Old Ore Road'. I just used some artistic license for a more dramatic effect.
A little sketchy on a big bike - but definitely doable. Piece of cake on a little bike.
Cool road though, because you feel like you are REALY in the wilderness.
You can prolly do that loop in an hour, maybe 1.5 hours.

Yeah, last time I was there (maybe 2015?) it was so deserted I thought The Rapture had come. This time it was completely overrun with hipsters selling boutique specialty cuisine.

I found old ore rd a blast on my super tenere. Old marathon rd with its sections of soft deep sand was another story.
I love the riding out there and plan to head out there Dec 27 for a few days.

Hey, did you kids ever decide if you're gonna go camping this Friday(12.10)? Me and a buddy are going to be rattling around the state and might crash your party - if we are in the right neighborhood. Weather looking good for a December.
Yep, tonight at the grasslands, shoot me a text and I will send you a pin
