We'll be riding from Austin out to Junction for the rally. What's the recommended most scenic/twisty/backroads (slab or dirt) route to take from Austin to Junction?

I'd love to be there, but I'm in New Mexico the weekend before, so its iffy. I'll make the decision that week. I would be getting in on Friday night, bike of choice to be decided in the moment. Camping at South Llano, most likely.

I’m riding my Suzuki DR-Z440W. Got it back from Erik Marquez 2 weeks ago. I’m trailering it out to the Big Bend gathering this week.

I'm really glad to see this getting fired up again. Unfortunately I'll be in Phoenix for my wife's youngest sister's wedding.

Certainly your choice. I'd go with the Twin if you can get her ready in time.

Every conceivable dual sport adventure bike will be represented. KLRs, DRZs, XR650Ls, 690s, DR650s, BMW800 and 1200GS, Super Tenere, Triumph Tigers, etc - they will all be there.

In the past KLRs have been the single most common model. The big adventure bikes are usually the biggest class. Old Japanese dual sports (DR, XRL, DRZ) are always popular and well represented. KTM/Husqvarna bikes are showing up in increasing numbers every year.

The routes are big bike friendly.

There will be a lot of pavement (unavoidable in the hill country) so it's best to have a bike that is comfortable riding highway speeds (70 mph).

I intend to ride my AT. A friend is riding his f800gs. Both of us are new to bikes larger than 450cc (for off road) It should be an Adventure for sure...
