Hey, last week i passed by that hotel you stayed at and said was closing. It's totaly flattened now. What is going up in its place, any body know?
Thanks👍
I also found out why I couldnt reach the EconoLodge in Kerrville for a group reservation quote...
Demolition is in progress... I must've been one of the last people to stay there. Lady at Super 8 said property sold early Nov 2018
I stayed at Thanksgiving

Gonna be a HOBBY LOBBY there soon

....& now.............

We havent heard much in the way of TShirt discussion lately..... Its getting pretty close to rally time now...so I thought I would bring up the subject.
GRSA was working on some designs but to my knowledge ..never got much feedback from anyone besides me..... Any updates to this?? (Im not doing shirts)
Ok here is the deal. Work is kicking me so i do not have alot of time right now but i have this as a potential design.


Not sure of price but it will be about 15.00 +-.
If there is interest i will follow through with sizes. PM me if interested.

I like the tshirt color palate.

Was wondering if over the weekend trip if someone wouldn't mind helping me set my bike's sag. I need some help with the shock nuts...I don't have a spanner wrench on hand and can't hold the punch/hammer method #onehandedproblems

Re: Strom A Thon VI Supa Ten III.. Equal Seekual March 29-31 2019 Tx Hill Country

Ok folks....looks like Super 8 on Hwy 16 near I10 has our bookings. I blocked 15 rooms total...half king..half 2 queen
The avg cost per room for 2 queens was appx $67 for 3 nites. Each nites rate was different tho...
Thurs & Sun $58.65 Fri $65.65 Sat $75.65
All rates are + tax
Rooms with 1 king are slightly less
15 rooms blocked till Mar 14th...we can adjust the ratio of King/Queens as needed if rooms are still avail.
Booking is under Two Wheeled Texans... I will add the booking # soon
I realise some folks will come Thurs...some Fri..& some my stay thru Sun nite so I booked for 4 nites. You will need to adjust your own room nites when you call

SUPER 8 KERRVILLE 830-896-1511 Nina

Ive added all this Super 8 motel info & Schreiner Park info to the first post
AN APOLOGY......
Folks...I keep getting reports of the people at Super 8 in Kerrville not giving us the prices that were originally quoted to me in December. Just yesterday someone reserved a room for Thur thru Sat nites & the Thur rate was the same as Fridays which is incorrect. I have previously called at least twice & spoke to the very same person who initially gave me the rates only to be given incorrect info...then that person saying it would be corrected.
IT WASNT
I am now waiting for a call back from the manager to get this corrected once & for all

Room rates should be
Thurs & Sun nites $58.65 + tx
Fri $65.65 + tx
Sat $75.65 +tx

Only 7 of the 15 rooms orig blocked have been reserved so far
This Fri is the Mar 1st deadline to get special pricing

If any one here has decided to stay at another motel due to this problem.... Im sorry on my behalf. In the future this will definately play a role in which motel is selected. (Motel problems at Lone Star & Days Inn were one of the reasons we moved from Llano to Kville)

Love the t shirt design GRSA
Thanks. So far I have two people saying they would like a shirt. With that said I need at least 24 to make an order so I am giving people to March 8th to PM me with size. Payment would be through paypal preferably. That should give me enough time to place the order and have it for the rally

Sorry if this has been asked and answered but do people generally arrive on Thursday, ride Friday and Saturday and then go home on Sunday?

Was thinking about heading there Thursday afternoon after working a half day or so and arriving around 6. Would I miss a solid day of riding or is Thursday afternoon arrival the norm?

Cool...I may try and tag along. Was thinking about camping but the tent sites by the river at Schreiners are sold out. I may grab a room at the Sup8 or see if I can jump in with someone that has a reservation. The lady at Schreiners said you can camp 4 to a site so hopefully someone has some room left.

Hey! I'm offering to lead a ride this year, very similar route as last year's but this one is especially for small bikes and will run at a relaxed pace. (I'll be riding my yami 250.)

We will take off from Destination Cycle Saturday morning, after enjoying breakfast courtesy of Bob Kee. Will be back in time for dinner at--where's dinner? Billie Gene's like last year?

I remain gps ignorant (much to JT's dismay) so please don't ask for a gps tracks, routes, etc. I can provide WOP routes (Written On Paper) for this year's small bike route and last year's route.

(Big Bird might have offered to lead a big bike, faster paced group.)

As usual, group size will be limited to no more than 8. JT will run sweep for us. We won't leave anyone and there will be opportunities enroute to "refresh" and refuel.

Looking forward to this year's StromAThon!

How busy are the paved roads down there that weekend in general?

I'm guessing the popular roads are pretty full? Still trying to decide whether to ride my pavement bike or dirt bike.

I’m a novice at leading groups but I have a route Gina sent me last year and I’m planning on using it on Saturday during the rally. It is not high speed twisties. Instead it stays mostly on county roads so slower speeds but more opportunity to take in the scenery.
it will be pavement but will have a few low water crossings (nothing scary) and we’ll probably stop for a little picture taking (wild flower season). Any bike with at least 2 wheels should be fine.
If you’ve ridden the 3 sisters enough times and are looking for something a little different, this might be for you. I plan to lead no more than 5 and have 4 spots available as of now. PM me if you’re
interested.

Round ones with tread remaining. You need to finally ride your new KTM500 before the gas gets old. Come on Trail Hoss ride that bike.

That's certainly the one I want to bring, but doing that cuts out anything but the mildest of dirt for me.

Not all of us have the skillz to fly a 600lb bike through single track. I mean, and enjoy it :)

I'm staying as far away from the Three Sisters as possible on Friday and Saturday even though I like the roads just fine. I've had a lot of fun headed in a different direction so that's what I'm going to do again this year. I'm leading a small group that's pretty close to full at the moment.

Friday's route is 247 miles with one easy gravel/unpaved section of road probably 4 miles long running NW out of Blanco and another approximately 1.5 miles long NW of Sisterdale that's easy to route around. Otherwise all pavement. This route features a nice canyon section that you won't find on the Butler maps (Thank you Mr2mch). Lunch in Blanco around 145 miles at the Old 300 BBQ

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29429220

Saturday's route will be a little shorter so we get back sooner. 204 miles all pavement with lunch in Fredericksburg at about 130 miles. The Willow City loop is easily added since you're right there at about mile 150. I left it out because riders in our group complained of the traffic there last year.


I started the routes between the Super 8 and the Park. Just throwing them out there in case anyone's looking for ideas.

Got it, VFR!
Yeah but...VFR!
But I...VFR!
I was thinking that...VFR!
See, I've always heard...VFR!
I read somewhere...VFR!
LOL. that's funny right there. :)

Personally, I'm committing to the Super Duke. It's all street with no ADV DNA at all and it will still be fine for 3 or 4 dirt miles out of 300-400 overall. Besides....you can always ride around any dirt and take the long way if needed. It's not like there aren't several ways to get everywhere down there.

Side note....I'm in full agreement to stay away from the Sisters but honestly, I've ridden them on perfect spring weekends when they were about as "crowded" as ever and they really aren't that crowded. Even if 200 or 300 bikes are riding them, spread over 60+ miles and going in both directions, I didn't find myself inconvenienced by traffic much at all.

The exception, and why I'm ok with skipping them, is the big rolling roadblocks that sometimes form when groups decide to ride in slow formation. Some groups do this more than others and I don't want to bash anyone but seriously....when you're ridiing in perfect formation at 5-10 mph under the speed limit, please be aware when bikes come up behind you, move to single file, and motion them through. Nobody cares if you want to ride slow unless they have to ride behind you.

204 miles is a 1/2 day ride for you. :mrgreen: Wasn’t there something going on that morning though.
