Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

It was great to meet everyone today. Being new to the area, I was hoping to meet some other riders and find some twisties and dirt. Not much luck finding dirt for me today but twisties were plentiful and I did meet some great people. Thanks for letting me tag along and thanks to Steve who found our way to that great BBQ at Cooper's. Heading to the COBDR and Shadow of the Rockies first week in August so I'll miss the next ride but already looking forward to the September one. Oh, and I did find that rain on the way back to DS. Thanks again.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Nice riding with you guys today. How did the alternate return the route treat you?

It rained in me just outside Llano but was otherwise comfortable back to Cedar Park.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Great ride today. It was a pleasure meeting some new riders & experiencing a few “new to me” roads. Kudos to Steve for leading.

Got a good soaking as I left Llano, but it was probably a good thing as it both cooled things off and kept me from slipping into a “meat coma” after the BBQ from Cooper’s.

Good luck to Ben, Johnny, & others who have exciting journeys ahead. Hope to ride with y’all again on the monthly outings or another adventure further afield.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Really enjoyed the ride today. Got to ride w/ some nice folks. Really liked Old SpiceWood Rd. Never been on it before - all smiles. Always good to "break bread" w/ fellow riders at Coopers BBQ. Was hoping to hit some dirt on the way back but right when we got outside of Coopers the heavens opened up. Slabbed it back to Burnet then followed Cliff on some backroads to Oatmeal and then we hit CowCreekTrail to 1431. Got to test out the KTM 1090 in RAIN mode. It did fantastic. Also tested out my new BattleBorn gear from Rocky Mountain ATV. It kept me dry. I think it's good to ride in non-ideal situations so that you know what ur bike and gear will do when you experience this on a remote trip - like a future BDR. Looking forward to more future monthly rides and cooler weather this fall.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I was talking to someone today about riding adventure bikes in the sand and mentioned a youtube video I recently saw that was pretty good. Here's a link to the video:

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Hi everybody I had a great time Saturday, I got a little wet on the way home myself but only lasted about 10 minutes. Sorry things were a little disjointed but it was a lot of fun next time more dirt Really enjoyed meeting everyone and spending sometime with everyone a Coopers BBQ. I will be on a one month ride in August through New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and possibly southern Nevada. Thanks again to everyone who came out and see everyone in September.

Also please make note to sign up for the Hill Country 500 that Richard Gibbens (forum handle "Trailboss") is organizing 11-2 thru 11-4 going to be a lot of dirt and a lot of fun!! Here is the link with all the info http://www.txadvriders.org/upcoming-...l-country-500/

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I will sign up for the HillCountry 500 and campout both Friday and Saturday nights. Good way to test out the equipment before riding a BDR in 2019.
