Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

Crazy, Richard you should schedule these rides more often. Who knew it would be like washing your car, only better! Forecast for Junction is a slightly less chance of rain and better temps.... it's going to be great.

Motobob, you could be sweating the 100 mile range. On the way to Junction in April I had 70 miles on the clock when Rusty said "hey, only 70 more miles to Junction, everybody going to make it?" (There was no gas station on that route... I made it on reserve.) It may be worth an MSR bottle just for the peace of mind. That 30 oz is ten miles you don't have to push your bike

Bring some 1/4" fuel line and you can siphon from a KLR...

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

I think I will just strap an aux gallon tank on my rear rack just in case, I don't want to slow us down waiting for quick gas stops, I know this is part of the adventure and will motivate me to get my Aqualine 4.8 gal tank, they are like $500 so they cost a bunch, I guess I can wait another pay day, and either way, after I learn the route and meet all you great people we can try and do this kind of stuff more often, I am sure everyone thanks Richard for just getting it altogether in the first place, my hotel is down the street but I am willing to buy a few beers for the crowd! 14 hours to go from now!

Kickstands up at 7:30am. So if you are going to grab a burrito, like I am, you should get there a little earlier.

Just an FYI, if it's raining hard in the morning, I'll probably bow out.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

Looks like it will be scattered showers today with the highest chance of rain in the afternoon to evening.
Weather man said no rain should last too long in any one area.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

Looks to me like the only showers are northern Travis County right now, Fredericksburg and Junction are clear...

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

I rode to Mason with the group did the James River Road and survived Then split off from the group at the intersection of the James River Road and the Salt Branch Road and had an excellent ride back to Austin.

Richard, let us know if you are going to start a ride report thread and I'll post some pics.

Nice meeting everyone today!!
