Hey Everyone,

Just joined TWT and here's my requisite intro.

I recently bought a 1200GS after riding every bit of asphalt I could find in the Alpine/Marfa/Big Bend area where I try to escape to 3-4 times per year on my R1200R.

Ready to try some roads I haven't been on and have been enjoying some dirt riding these last couple months. A n00b for sure but I'm a good student. Spent six days at Rawhyde Offroad where I took a GS to places I never would have thought possible and want to put some of my training to work.

I'm now exploring some dirt roads in the Hill Country using Richard's ride guides and am trying to get out to Big Bend Dec 12-15th. Plan is to stay in Marfa one night, take Pinto Canyon to 170 then down to Big Bend for another night, do River Road and/or some other "easy" routes in Richard's Big Bend guide, then back to Marfa Saturday night before heading back to Austin on Sunday. If anyone's in the area and up for River Road or one of the routes in Big Bend, let me know.

Looking forward to seeing some of you on and off road.

-PJ

Welcome to the forum PJ.
You need to post a picture of the bike to be fully introduced!

Welcome to TWT. I take it you're not new to Austin, just TWT. I'll be interested to know how your Big Bend trip goes. Its on my destination in February and if I make it will be my first time out.
