here is a water crossing below Lake Palo Pinto dam that I crossed yesterday on the pavement route.
Had a great time with a bunch of great guys and gals!

What a fun time that was. That was my first RTB and I suspect I'll be back for the next one. Despite some minor motorcycle issues, I still had a really good time this weekend.

Dody, Aaron, Rusty, Brian - Thanks for all the hard work you guys put into this event to make it such a good one.

James - Thanks for leading us on a fun route Friday morning. I still can't get over how fast you can get that NC700X with street tires going down a dirt road :)

It was really good to meet, chat and ride with so many TWT members this weekend.

Oh and James, thanks for working on my fork seal leak for me. I'm going to order one of those tools today.

OK guys and gals! Time to start work on RTB X!!! We had Possum Holler full this year and I expect to see RTB grow for next year and don't see the Holler being able to handle the crowd. I would like to find a venue with access to rough roads and maybe single track. I have many nice routes in the San Saba to Brownwood area but no venue. I do not want to wait til last minute to pull this off. It was tough to pull together to do this after my dad died in July and I almost cancelled it but then things came together.

I want to take a poll what weekend in October is best. We typically use the last weekend in October and I have had complaints with families that like to do Halloween stuff. Last year was second weekend and that hurt folks who are divorced and had visitation issues....So give me some feedback!!!

I'd be game for the same next year. Same time, same place.

I'm sure there are plenty of good spots and routes in the Hill Country as well.

Glenwood, Arkansas was pretty fun back in September. MacDaddy had a ton of good routes there. Not sure how big that campground was though where most folks stayed.

Anything out in East Texas? BadTex told me about an East Texas ride he used to do that he wanted to revive. Maybe RTB could use that format.

Late October worked great for me and the weather was outstanding.

Really enjoyed the weekend and meeting new riders! Thanks for all your hard work putting it together.
