Sorry to have missed this year. Just back from my 4 day trip to the Romney Camp & Ride in WV. Probably at least that number of Strom's in attendance there and an equal number of Super Tenere's. Too bad events were scheduled on the same weekend forcing me to decide. My new bike picked Appalachia over Llano so I had to follow it there.Difficult to really count but about 60 riders participated in this amassing 3 day event...
Where is that video?
Imma stupid...I need me some convincing
[MR2MCH Ahhhh Mosheim...the old school building.... Welcome to the MosheimThis was another fantastic Stromathon! I'm looking forward to number three! It was great to visit with old friends and to make new ones. And the riding, of course, was the icing on the cake! It took me a few days to get my pictures uploaded:
Friday I did the obligatory pilgrimage, which I had somehow failed to do until now, to the Three Sisters. On the way there I crossed a river:
[MR2MCH..Prob either of the Llano River crossings on RR1871 or RR385 NE of Junction...?? Am I rite?]
Stopped by the Telegraph Store & Post Office in Kimble County on US-377. It looks like gas hasn't been sold here in a while...
Then I rode the sisters and took Bullhead road (gravel, through the ranches) between 335 and 336 (it's a perfect V-Strom road . It ended up being a 340 mile day by the time I got back to Llano through Medina and Fredericksburg.
Night in the park:
Saturday our group rode the Click Ranch gravel roads (Thanks, Brian, for leading!). Stopped at Harry's on the Willow City Loop:

The afternoon ended (after the 70 min wait for lunch in Llano) at the Castel General Store where StrokedNBored experimented with various tire plug options:
Sunday morning at the photo shoot: Thank you Donna for taking and sharing the great pictures of the gathered Stroms & Friends! And here are a couple of 'behind the scenes' shots:
Then Josh (Vfaame) suggested we go explore the Regency Bridge. We did (great idea, Josh!). The boards on the bridge were super slick, but the bridge made for some fantastic shots:
From there the ride back to Dallas involved wide open highways:
[MR2MCH Hopefully ya took FM574 into Golthwaite & either FM2005 or.. preferably FM572 headed east outta Golthwaite]
And Texas oddities (Somewhere on FM 217, west of Valley Mills):
