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
A bit more detail. The big gravel section on 335 is within the first few miles after turn off of 55 out of Camp Wood going Northbound.

The big dip in the cattle guard is probably about 5 miles before 336 hits 83 when going Southbound and likely about 7 miles North of Leakey. I rode the loop clockwise so the cattle guard was towards the end of my ride on 336. I think that section is about 20 miles so probably about 15 miles in from the North. It's not on a curve so it's just the bump that you have to watch for. Unfortunately.....it's easy to ignore the 45 mph warning since it's a straightaway and it's like the 10th cattle guard you've come to with a 45 mph warning and all the other ones were pretty smooth and could be taken at 55. In fact...the one I'm mentioning here probably should be taken at 35 or so. I hit it at 55 with good aftermarket suspension and it still almost bottomed out.

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.
2WheelNut, if GLFlyer gives you notice that he's not coming, please tell me. I'll cancel my spot and camp at 52.

Hey folks, if any are planning an early arrival and feel like getting dirty...
I'll be leading a ride on Thursday headed toward the southwest of Kville and then another on Friday headed north toward Junction. Both rides will be dirt oriented with Friday's route including the James river among several others. We'll try to limit pavement to a minimum. All are welcome to join in.

Sorry Rod , perhaps I led you believe I was coming by partcitating in the thread. (Saw I was on the list) I'm going on Sanders 2 day ride this weekend and going to the Torcs enduro next weekend. The banter is too much fun not to participate. Y'all have fun. That dealership is where I got my strom. That will be fun messing around there for breakfast. Seems like it's going to be a big one this year too.

I'll be leaving from my house (Benbrook-Whisky Flats area) on Friday morning at about 8:30am. Will be riding the smaller roads at a reasonable pace. Anyone want to tag along is welcome. PM me and we can discuss and I'll let you know the secret bat cave address.

Unfortunately I am not 100 % on coming down but also if I do I'll probably wait until the last minute to figure out lodging. I'm thinking I might tag in with someone on the way down so let me check with my usual suspects and figure out what their plan might be. Probably moteling it though!

Rod, just curious when are you going to head down to the area?

New to the thread. Saint and I are thinking of joining this crew if we can find a spot for our house on wheels. I got a little lost on the thread. Where are camping and RV people staying? Anyone know if there is still room?

Today..the flours were out...but not as thick as I expected them to be. Burnet on 29 to the lake was decently sprinkled..as was Park Rd 4.... Hardly any on Llano CR307...but decent on 71. FM2323 had some but we only went out to CR118 then up to FM152 which was about the same.
Biggest surprise was almost total lack of bluebonnets on 16 from Llano to Cherokee...theres usually at least some good patches on that stretch...??
Thats about as far as we got this afternoon

Yeah...if you look at the map...the Ranch House is actually separate from the Hillside area. Outside the gate up on a hill with its own driveway & closer to the highway than the other camping/cabins/RV spots. It is close to RV 30A. The Park Cabin is at back of Hillside closer to High Point cabins & Fox Run camping. Midway cabins & Fawn Hideaway camping in the middle of Hillside addition.

I will not know if I can go until (literally) the very last minute. Would it be foolish to think I could find a place to camp without advance reservations?
I saved you a dirt patch, as far as I know. You're part of my site body count. Are you bailing on me?!?!? :lol2::lol2::lol2::lol2: I kid, I kid. You got plenty to juggle. But a spot awaits.
