If someone has run these roads before and wants to lead the way after the Austin meetup that would be preferable. Some of us myself included has not been on this route before. Bring comfortable clothes and video camera with mount if you have one.

I voted for the 21st b/c I might be celebrating my birthday out there in Wimberly. =)


btw, post up that pic again of the route. I think I saw you post it up in another thread.


edit: N/m found it! =)




Road Length: 175 Miles




Highway 335 ... often called "The Roller Coaster"


A ride through this part of Texas will most certainly change your view of my beloved state. You will ride amongst scenery as good as it gets, along clear rivers, through very twisty mountain type curves amidst real Texas Ranches. With million dollar vistas and cool clear waters along with friendly folks and knowing that you are riding the best this large state can offer, makes for great riding...




Nueces River on Ranch Rd 335


This route is mainly very twisty passing over large hills and between not many gas stations. This roller coaster ride will no doubt blow you away. The road is not heavily traveled, but beware as sharp turns have certainly taken many motorcyclist down. Also, although the surface is mostly in very good condition, always watch for loose gravel, deer and slow moving locals heading back to their ranch ... often a much slower pace than we're zippin by at.


Frio River just outside Leaky on Ranch Road 337.


Huge ranch just north of Campwood on Ranch Road 335


This route isn't going to be know for its "Roadside Amenities" as much as it is known for its scenery and road quality. There are some very nice pull-outs, stop and enjoy the long vistas. Gas up in Leakey as there are not too many gas stations to choose from and where there is a very good motorcycle shop. For a refreshing summertime swimming hole try the Frio River.



Directions:




From Kerrville, heading south on Texas 16. At Medina you'll need to catch RR337 heading west (right). Take RR337 west until you come up on the town of Leakey. At Leakey, go north on US 83 for a just about a mile and look for RR336 on the left. Take a left onto RR336 which will head you north. Continue north on RR336 until you meet Texas 41 and at this point you will want to turn left in order to head west. Go west for 15 miles or so and you will find RR335 on the left. Take a left and get on RR335 where you can finish out the rest of this great ride.

"Hwy 16 between Kerrville and Bandera is not for beginners! Due to recent accidents, weekend police patrol has increased a great deal. Hwy 173 may be a better route between Kerrville & Bandera."

Just throwing it out there since Casey, htown09, hasn't had time to post yet. I think he's run into a little car trouble and may not be able to make this event.
