Welcome to another rally that's not a rally.
May 1-2-3rd. 2015.





This is a NO fee, NO registration event for all Suzuki V-stroms and Others, young or old, any color, and any size.


Year 2 for this annual spring time event.

Last years attendance was other 50 bikes. Not bad for a first time event. We should top that this year.

Last Years After Ride Report
Harvested Pictures from 2014

This is primarily a riding event but families would enjoy this area as well. The area is great for sightseeing the hill country plus the spring time that most years bring an abundance of wild flowers. A major photo op here. They have been getting rain in Llano this spring which should increase the flowers from last year.

There are no set routes. You just explore the hill country and find all its great offerings. Meet up with like minded and skilled explorers.

Last year we had several great volunteer ride leaders leading both paved and combination (dirt and paved) rides. We hope to see them and others this year. (This means you Rod (Mr2mch) and MudClod)

Below you will find some sights just waiting to be explored.

Locations: Llano Texas in the heart of the Texas Hill country.

Llano (/ˈlænoʊ/ LAN-oh) is a city in Llano County, Texas,

Ride Headquarter: Days Inn & Suites 609 Bessemer Ave. 866-261-1141 (V-Strom Motorcycle Group Rate) $69.00 plus tax $78.09 for single or double queen. Kings and suites are also available but you will need to work out that rate with the hotel. 17 rooms that are currently available at this rate. 16 actually as I reserved 1. These rooms can be cancelled up to 4PM this night before your arrival. So if you are considering doing this ride and need a motel room you may want to jump on this early.

The Days Inn has dropped their rate from $99.00 to $69.00 for our ride group. This rate includes a free deluxe continental breakfast. They have coffee makers in the rooms plus refrigerator and microwave. There is also a community BBQ area with a large open parking area and is next door to the Badu which is where we will have Saturday evening get together. (see below for more information in the Badu)




Lone Star Inn - 325-247-4111 has gone up on us this year. They were not open to any rate reduction so their rate is 64.95 ($73.34 including taxes) for any room, king or double, non-smoking or smoking. They have 50 rooms.

700 W. Young St. (Hwy 29 W.)

Food:

In the general there is plenty of places to eat. You will find the Meat Market steak house and down the block is the famous Coopers BBQ. There is also a bakery just down the street from the Days Inn. :trust:

Camping and RV: The Llano City Robinson campground.

From TX 16: FM 152 W 2 mi. On Llano River., Llano TX 78643

RV park office manager @ 325-247-7905. Reservations are not required for the tent camping area. Fee for camping is a wopping $5.00 per head per night. If you are wanting to use their RV facilities check there for rates and availability. They may be busy by this time.

Count me in for sure either way.....

But that said, gotta keep harmony in the Rooster House, so my vote is to move it as you suggest above Lee, unless the overall consensus feels otherwise. For some of us Mothers Day is a tough one to weasel out of........

Good, I'm back in. My normally patient & longsuffering wife made it very plain to me that if I go moto camping on Mother's Day weekend, I shouldn't hurry back anytime soon. :duck:

Careful there, next thing you know she'll want you to stay home on her birthday and your wedding anniversary also!

The date change is good and the right thing to do Lee. Unfortunately for myself it now conflicts with another ride plan so I'm forced to make a decision.
