Thanks for the heads up...will avoid those county roads. We'll probably end up around FB, but I'm hoping to stay outside of it as I expect it will be a zoo.

Oh. Just saw the road numbers . I was in a different place. Sorry. Shady rode those real recently as did Rusty. I will let them comment. I think they'd be ok depending on the crossing.

On the map I see a few roads that seem to bypass the crossings. Are those private / inaccessible?

Thinking about heading out toward Inks/Buchanan, then cutting over and heading down to the Enchanted Rock area.
Hows the S10 do with a pillion? I still like those bikes.

Cykel, I had no problem with my rig Saturday on 308/310. I would suggest Welgehausen as a great paved road along with others in that area.

If your gonna do 308/310 it would be a shame to not do 315! Unless we're talking about different counties, on my phone in Austin.

Nice looking used 990s at lone star right now:



TJ's had a used Dakar for those looking.

OK. Who is riding tomorrow? I have a feeling I won't be invited along on the two-up ride. I have a bit of a borrowed TKC rear tire to kill.

It's very well set-up with fine kit and very well cared for by Stephen.

So I'm guessing I made a big mistake when I turned around after seeing the road closed at Sandy creek sign on 315 at Click.

It's a good step above any other bike I've owned. The wife likes being on it, but she thinks it's ugly when she's off of it

Plenty of room, bike handles well. For us, the stock shock at full preload puts the two-up sag just about right. I suspect an aftermarket unit would make it wonderful.

Only complaint I've gotten has been ankle-heating from the exhaust.

Lots of positive 2-up reports from owners...many from FJRs. Not sure how it compares to the GS/GSA, but my guess would be very similar.

This sign? Yeah I see it as more of a guideline than a rule. It's been up for at least 3 years. This is sandy creek crossing. Rick bottom and not bad, fun little crossing.



SoG, if I get this shit on the bike tonight in up for anything. I'll go two up on anything, won't be the first time she has been shot off the back of my bike. First for the KTM I suppose. Unless you don't want to be slowed down by two uppers.
