Well. Went and checked out the bike for in the morning. New used TKC is holding air. But apparently I left well used underwear, socks, and a bag of old guy crazy pills in Uvalde as a tip for the housekeeper. Grrrrr. Couple more years and they won't let off the lock-down ward without being on a leash.

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.

Ya'll are talkin about two natural crossings on Sandy Creek right? Are these the two where the road goes across then down the creek for a bit ..then back across to the other side ?? If it is..then that's where I crossed back in the 90s on my VX800....After doing both on that street bike I WAS THE MAN!!!

then I encountered the long narrow slab across the wide part....with just that little trickle of water on it.....BAM!! yep I "WAS" the man
..but made it to Marble Falls for a piece of pie as consolation.

I also rode across Cooper's Crossing on the North Bosque riding a XJ650 Seca in the 80s

Both times were kinda interesting on those bikes.

Well. We have a plan. Sort of. I will meet cykel + 1 in Burnet at 9.


Soon as Joe shoehorns on the tire that is being a bitch I will know which way I am heading. lol. If joe is ready to go at 8, we will be headed clockwise. If joe is still fighting it we will loop counterclockwise and get joe and wife. And give joe some more time to tame the evil tire. lol it will work out.

We will see what we get done . I have bumpgate, the exotic ranch, Rough Creek, that desolate fun dirt stuff below San Saba, and regency bridge on the plate . We will see what the day brings. Should be fun.

That's it. That long narrow section has claimed many a victim over the years.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

I still can't believe I rode that road on my VX800. Well...the actual road wasn't too hairy on that bike....but the crossings???

I'm headed back east tomorrow..to continue my east Tx ROaDmapping.....Maybe stay till Sat or Sun.

Sadly, I'm out for tomorrow. Anything going on next weekend?

Oh, pics from the Big Sandy suckage...

Hindsight being 20/20...


It sucked water in the exhaust killing the engine back in the deep part of the crossing where the current kept trying to push it over and eroding sand out from under the tires. Being by myself, it was quite the Sisyphean feat to get the fat fuck this far!


And again to get a few more feet...


The walk out to a cell signal and eventual rescue sucked, but even with being threatened by thug-life cattle, it was better than the ride home with the thin lipped wife! Ha ha! Really, she's a trooper for putting up with me. Notice I don't have all my gear since is was stashed next to the creek just waiting for the water to rise enough to wash it away, thus necessitating the swim across the flooded creek a day or two later. It's a good thing I grew up a dirt farming Okie swimming in a flooded North Canadian back home! When I got back to my gear my helmet was bobbing in the water just ready to be pushed over the little clumps of grass corralling it!
