If I don't go I'll be kicking myself all through the West Texas summer until it's cool enough to go again.

Leaving Friday morning around 6. 2 bikes 2up. Taking my 14 yo son on his first long ride. I think he might have computer withdrawls before we get to Langtry! He's already looking for cyber cafe's allong the way. I think he will be dissappointed.

If he gets really desperate tell him they have wifi on the porch in Terlingua Ghost Town!

I'm new here. I have owned dual sports in the past but not currently, so I am stuck to the roads only. I have 1 bike, a cruiser. Any other cruisers going or will I stick out like a sore thumb?

Oh, I'm in.

No, you aren't going to stick out. There will be road bike as part of this ride, plus there are always people down there with cruisers anyway. At the Front Porch you will see everything parked there in the evening. Scooters, cruisers, hacks, and DS bikes.

:tab Just an FYI for anyone interested, I will be selling TWT T-shirts all weekend. I will try to be at Kosmic Kathy's each morning so that I am easy to find. Otherwise, I plan to camp over by Uncle's in that little park, or to be hanging out at Uncle's or the Front Porch. I still have quite a few of each size. They are $20 each. You can see them here. I will also have some of the vinyl TWT stickers.

:tab I forgot to add that I will also have several sets of spare tires in the back of my truck and tire changing equipment. The tires are used D606's for both front and rear in KLR sizes, 90/90-21 front and 130/90-17 rear. Even though used, they still have enough rubber to do the weekend or to get someone home if needed. They are free for the asking but you have to help ;-) I don't have extra tubes.

You either need a backcountry permit or stay in one of the established campgrounds. The problem with the backcountry permit is that you have to get it before they close the visitor center at around 5pm.

I've heard so much about your place out there, and I would love to stop by and visit. 'Leaving the BMW behind though on this one; it will be a Yamaha vacation this time.

Hi all! Jim Green, Klaus, Jim Knight and I are coming! Are there any motels we can stay at?

Thanks
Hey, it will be fun to ride with some of my fellow BMW Club of Houston dual sporters. I've got my new WR250R and am adding farkles as fast as my pocket book will allow. I'm worried about range though, and would love one of those 3.5 gal Safari tanks. Hmmm. Probably not though. I'll be taking my pickup camper and trailering my bike and Ron Marek's KLR650 to the area the preceding Monday. 'Don't know for sure if I'll be at Gareth Park or looking for somewhere to hook up to water and power. See all of you there.
