I’ll be riding from Austin, Bee Cave/Dripping, on Thursday if anyone needs a riding partner. Looking forward to it!

I'm looking forward to this, especially after missing the Tenere-acity of Strom-a-Thon.

Re: Texas Adventure Ride: May 3-6, 2018

what cha goin' to be riding?
Well let's see, what will I be riding? From my stable of bikes, I think I'll go with my favorite, the 2016 Super Tenere. Of course my "stable" has just one bike in it, making the Super T my "favorite". :lol2::lol2:

Seriously, thanks for asking, and I am looking forward to the ride after reading somewhere that the routes are "big bike friendly".

If the forecast does not improve, we will have to cancel the rally. We will make a decision by tomorrow afternoon.

May is packed with events, making it difficult to set a rain date...
Fingers crossed for a sunnier outlook

June would be ok, too. My friend from Bedford cancelled and released his room, so if the rally continues there is a room available. Weather looks sketchy.

Hoping the forecast will change. A little rain is OK but thunderstorms all day will keep me home.

Monday, Tuesday, even Wednesday is OK for rain. But not ride time! Rain next week even...

Hoping for the rain to push through faster leaving a dustless ride.

I don’t THINK it’s looking that bad...

Possible scattered thunderstorms Thu AM and again after midnight.
Likely on Friday EVENING.
Unlikely Sat.

- not much in total, looks to be brief when it does. (And I’m not made of sugar. ..Won’t melt :) )

Anyway; if you guys ARE going ahead with it; I’m in.
(Not registered; but we have rooms booked and will reg. when decision is made)

Guys, I have call it. The rally is officially cancelled. The forecast is for a total of 2" accumulating Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with the majority on Friday. Sticky wet caliche is not fun.

Rich has told me that he will mail the hats out to everyone that has pre-paid and refund the registration cost minus the cost of the hat. He needs everyone to email him their mailing addresses, please send email to rgibbens@austin.rr.com.
