I jus got off the phone with Bob Kee of Destination Cycles in Kerrville.
They are goin ta provide us with a nice Saturday mornin breakfast 8AM at the dealership on Loop 534 across from the School.
There will be tacos donuts coffee n juice to choose from so we wont be all hungry hedded out for our rides.
BIG THANX TO BOB & HIS CREW FOR THIS!

We would prob be wise to have our various ride groups separated out before heddn over there....& each group can then leave directly from the dealership
Or not.....jus sayin it might make for quiker ride start times

I’ll be looking for a group. Honestly, I would like to ride the sisters (never done it), but can be definitely lured by other routes.

Did Willow Loop this past weekend with extreme fog and that was fun.

For those in the know, when would be the right time to ride the sisters on this trip? Friday morning?
Friday morning should be fine. The rolling roadblock groups are not typically early risers and most form on the weekend. Even on the weekend, if you can be riding them by 8 and finish by noon, you'll have pretty good results.

On a Friday morning...you'd probably have the road mostly to yourself.

I'm going down there this weekend for a spring break family ride. We'll be riding in the area Saturday through Monday. I'll probably wait until Monday to ride the Sisters...but we'll see.

I was going to call and reserve another but does anyone have a tent site reserved at Schreiners already that they want to share? They say you can put 4 vehicles and up to 8 people per site.

Need space for 2 bikes / riders. Me and GLFlyer. (although Flyer is still TBD) Don't need water or electric but ok if it's there. Will be throwing up a hammock so trees are needed. Happy to share in the space cost with you.

I'm pretty sure I could just show up and find someone and honestly it may be required since I'll need trees....but I guess I'm too much of a planner for that.

Here are a couple of good sources for roads in the area....
First is a local Kerrville area/Kerr County map. I've highlighted some of the good paved county roads whether they are dead ends or loops that go thru to main roads
This free map can be found at many places around town...motels..convenience stores..& prob at Schreiner too.

Next are a couple of pages from the newly released Benchmark Texas Road & Recreation Atlas. This is very similar to the Mapsco Roads of Texas Atlas but seems to have more current road info...jus not as large scale

Yep - I do. So far, it's me and I think TX-northstar is going to slap a tent down somewhere. I can't remember the site number off-hand. Dig back a page or two. Or I'll get around to remembering it eventually :-P

I guess it's about time I actually made it to Stromathon so count me in. I've got a site at Fawn Hideaway and the roolz say it can hold 8 bodies so holla if you want to share a chunk of dirt. The fine print says 2 vehicles per site or there will be excess fees. Anyhoo, #52 from 3/28-31 is good to go.
Looks like #52 is a bit limited on trees Dave, but... there are a few. Spot 50 would be more ideal... but, I think you can make it work at 52. Especially if I don't show up with another hammock to deal with. ;)

I'll probably own a hammock stand by then anyway. Kevin almost has me convinced it's worth the $300 to not ever have to worry about needing trees.

Oh no, the bars will be packed. So will be roads, with slow moving cruisers. Probably will be a heightened police presence on those roads too.

Seems like those Thunder rallies occur about every other weekend thru the summer. Nevertheless, as was noted earlier, ride early in the day, and/or ride the sisters counterclockwise and you should have clear sailing.

Looks like you are site 52. I'll plan on joining you. Happy to share the site costs as well.

I ordered a hammock stand, trees still good in case GLFlyer shows though. He won't know until we get closer.

Welcome aboard, sir! I looked at more of 'the rules' and they have a $5 charge for excess vehicles but I don't know what that means in practical terms. We'll find out!

Looks like they are going to start in Bandera on Saturday morning and follow this route:

Looks like they are going counter clockwise? No Sisters on Saturday, I guess.

Because then youre meeting endless traffic in tight blind corners.....
Not my idea of a fun ride...whether its spirited...or sightseeing
I would ride The Sisters either Wed-Thurs ..or Sun-Mon instead

& trafficky conditions wont be confined to just those roads... Many other fun roads in the area will see elevated traffic levels over the weekend

Thanks Jarret for posting the Thunder route. Yup, I would run the sisters clockwise this year.

In my experience, living here in Kerrville, it’s not the doom and gloom ya might think. The crowds are ez to avoid. Ez to spot (hear) in any case. Lol

The majority of our cruisin’ cuzzins stick to the main highways and don’t get started til late morning.

Yes, if the Sisters are your Saturday goal, a smart rider/group might want to skip the free breakfast and get on the road earlier to avoid any possible congestion.

Kat, if you have room, I'd like to share your site too.

edit: Just dawned on me that your site is full. I'll get my own.

I just reserved #51 at the Schreiner Park. Anyone else needing a camping spot is welcome to share mine.

Rod, sorry for my sarcastic remarks. Most know I can't help myself.

Also, there's that CCC built amphitheater at the park too, may be a good place for a photo gathering

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.
The old “Pirate Parade”, the folks who ride <500 miles a year, & all at -20mph from posted speeds. I enjoy passing them by the score. But I’m not a patch to Gene.

From 2WheelNut.....

[Rode the 3 Sisters on Sunday. Nice ride but there's a fair amount of construction on 335 including a 300 yard section of loose / rough gravel that happens to be at the bottom of a hill and right after a slight turn if you are going northbound. It honestly surprised me a bit. The bike handled fine, but it was a bit surprising and I thought I'd share.

There were a lot of other areas with fresh patching / gravel on the road. In general, I'd rate the road condition on 335 as fair. It's still well worth the ride and I'd recommend it but just know that you might come across a bit of gravel in the corners and that one 300 yard section and it would be best to ride it a bit more conservative than normal. 336 and 337 seemed pretty normal except for that big dip on the cattle guard on 336 that will bottom out most street bikes with stock suspension if you don't slow down to the recommended 45.]

Take heed all ye olde Sisters Slayers
We dont need no crashes
