Motorcycle Grand Tour of Texas 2021

I saw the info for last years thread, and decided maybe it would be best to have a new one for the 2021 ride for those participating.

Registration is closed.
Ride date started March 15, 2021, and ends November 15, 2021.

I copied the Google map links to Excel. Not sure of the numbering system they used, because they are not based on location for the most part.
The address listed are as close as I can get for some using google maps. If using other mapping software, it may be off.

His website (http://www.lonestarrider.com) gives his schedule throughout the year. He's also likely to be at the Kerrville Y.O. Ranch event in September as well. I picked up that stop when he came to the Bandera event in 2020.

If #44 is the Ride For A Cure guy, there were a couple of events last year where you could meet up with him. He also gave out the link to his SPOT tracker, so you could see where he was, on his trips around Texas. I used that link to track him to a hotel in San Marcos, drove down and snapped a pic next to his trailer.

Here's a GPX file with all the 2021 tour stops. Purple icons are regular stops. $ icons are sponsors. Included the tour stop number (1-50) in each to help with tracking/planning.

Also, make sure you read the email newsletter that came out on Jan 1 before you register! I didn't. Cost me $5. #Doh

never mind, #44 is now posted on the site.
Same as last year, photo with the Lone Star Rider. No set meet date a of now, I am sure it will come up later.
You can always follow his Spotwalla link to see where he is currently, and the other thread said his website, Twitter Facebook and Youtube channel will have locations/updates/future trips as well.

Thank you very much for all of the information! I have registered and I am looking forward to riding to the locations.

Registration opened January 1, 2021 and ends ~ February 28, 2021.
Ride date starts March 15, 2021 and ends November 15, 2021.

I signed up today and have already made up a few day trip maps to get 11 of them (4 separate trips).
After that, I think at least a 2 day trip would be needed to get more of them (a trip to the Sisters would get me 6 of them, and was already planning that).

Signed up for the first time, looks like there might be more than a few sidecar rigs on this hunt. Am assuming one cannot start taking the photos until March 15.

Ride safe y'all and happy hunting.

Here are the GPS coordinates for #4, the Texas Sidecar Company.

31.480654,-96.223171

The directions given in the newsletter are correct, but the map location given for the place on the Ride Texas website, for an event later this month, are not. I got the GPS coordinates from the TSC owner yesterday, who said the location given by Google Maps is wrong, and that is the map Ride Texas is using. RT said they will fix it. Apple Maps has it correct.

That’s where I have it. The first thing I did was create a new file of the Lat/long for each stop. I used google maps and street view to find the exact spot for each stop. Now I’m creating routes to hit each stop.

Thanks for confirming this.

Same here, but using BaseCamp. I started with the 2020 spots, making a copy and deleting the non repeats. IIRC, there are 36 new spots.

And mine showed up today.

Sad thing is I will be either working or out of town from the 14th to the 28th, so the 29th will be my first chance to go out and get a few.
I will be getting a group of 3 first, either San Jacinto Monument/ Anchor Blown a Mile/ Mystery Boat or Navasota/Brenham/Dime Box.

I think I will try to make the Y.O Ranch date as well (September 11,2021). That should get 6 or so with that one.
