Thanks for the advice, now I'm hungry

Great clarity provided on Q guys. Now I'm hungry as heck at 4:30 in the morning. Gonna go on a ride today to Marble Falls since I have never been there, and continue my TX BBQ evaluation process.

If in Marble Falls a must do stop is the Bluebonnet Cafe. Pie to Die for. Ate there yesterday on the way back from a Hill Country Ride/Camp. Will be there next week-end also on a ride with about 20 other bikes. Also try the Turkey Sausage up the street about a 1/2 mile on the same side. Been doing it for almost 50 years.

Heard good things about a place in Burnet called Post Ranch BBQ. Anybody been there?

I've never cared for hard 8 ribs... But I'm picky.

As I've heard it some of the best pork chops around come from Ranch House in Glen Rose on Fri and Sat nights. That's second hand info but the source is reliable.

I stopped at the Hard 8 in Stephenville two days ago. Got the ribs, sausage and the bacon wrap poppers. I'm not a BBQ snob and usually like most Q. I thought the ribs were very good as was the sausage but the poppers were kinda dried out. I think they were sitting there for a while. I love their beans, being free makes them that much better.

The beans are great. I love those whole jalopenos cooked in there with them.

I've had dry poppers on more than one occasion. They're tasty but I usually don't order any because of that.

In my experience the sausage has been quite satisfactory.

I live close and ride/eat there alot and really like the place. Brisket is always very good and their Jalapeno Corn rocks. And FREE beans, well how could you not like those. Plus, they are very good. Always enjoyed with a Dr. Pepper.

Kerrville and Austin

I'm headed to Austin for Moto Gp next week but we're stopping first in Kerrville and riding the Sisters. Two things we're looking for are great Q and a great steak.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It'll be my first time riding Texas and really looking forward to it!

I really like The Salt Lick BBQ southwest of Austin, located just east of Driftwood,TX. I also will be at the MotoGP and plan on eating at the Salt Lick on Sat. eve. As I re-call there is a place called Cowboy Steakhouse in Kerrville that has very good steaks. If not, just ask any locals, they will know and help you out. Enjoy your time in Texas, we Texan's always appreciate a Vets service to this great country. If I see you at The Salt Lick BBQ, dinner is on me.

What was that stuff?

So there I was, turning around after ordering some brisket and slaw at Rocky Creek BBQ on Hamilton Pool Road when I noticed my KTM was lying on the ground. WTF? I trot over and it appeared that the side stand had simply disappeared. How could this happen? I picked it up, surprised that I could do it, frankly. And surprised that it would only go halfway up, as the side stand had not, it turned out, vanished but rather had sunk into the ground and now didn't want to come out, like a broadhead in a dead boar.

I'm still puzzled. The ground looked firm, just like all the other ground, a mix of soil and rock and dead leaves and dead grasses, but this was soft, yielding–it had a plastic texture like playdough. More mysteriously, it felt.. I don't know.. kind of damp.

So, what the fuck was that stuff?


PS: Rocky Creek has very very good brisket and pork ribs and sausage. And slaw, if anybody besides me cares.

Aaah. That was "kickstand quicksand". It's everywhere. ;)

KTMs fall over just to tease you

KTMs generally fall down while going fast, then cost a fortune to repair. Don't ask me how I know. Consider yourself lucky to have it fall over in a parking lot with minimal damage. Time for the kickstand pad extender accessory.

Hmmm, I've always heard the little KTMs had flimsy side stands that were prone to failure. Sadly, my WR250R side stand sank into the ground under my considerable weight. I need to get one of those side stand pad things to reduce the chance of that happening again. Or lose weight, but the stands are quicker, faster, than me actually losing an bunch of pounds. Probably staying away from BBQ is my best bet to achieve the weight loss.
