Supten is filthy at the moment. In fact I can't remember the last time it was clean.

Uhmmmm, no, I use the sight glass for that.

These are my spare keys on a locking caribiner. I'll get a backup key when I get home. Shops down here can open it if I need. Got the OEM cap.

Perfect street bike ...With gravel capability too. You've already got the dirt (yar///correction...field) covered with that Yammy.

I've been tossing the Dakar out to anyone I know thinking about a bike purchase. No takers yet. I'd like to see one of my friends thinking about getting into riding start on that thing.

TEXAS HILL COUNTRY MAP NEEDS YOUR SUGGESTIONS..it's worth a free map!!

FREE UPCOMING 3RD EDITION TEXAS HILL COUNTRY MAP(S)

Hey folks,
I just got off the phone with Court @ Butler. We were discussin some of the roads shown on the THC map & I brought up the fact that there could be some worthwhile additions/corrections that could be included in the upcoming 3rd Edition due in about 2 months. I found some road corrections myself but did not have the time to make notes while riding.

Due to their current schedule of map projects (& the limited people power to get em done) We'd like ta ask for ya'lls help in making some additions & corrections to the roads shown. OR....If you have a new road submission to add. Local riders tend to run these roads on a much more frequent basis so those folks will have the suggestions needed easily.

One such road condition correction is Llano CR114 (I think) which runs from the small community of Oxford on TX16 west & north over to RR2323
Shown on the current THC map as gravel....It is actually paved all the way. UPDATE!!!

Another small detail that would be considered is where a county road ...say CR157(just a number I picked) intersects with another CR...say Long Rd. You hafta make a turn on Long Rd for a short distance then CR157 picks up again. Those kinda details make the map much more accurate for our out of state travellers...or anyone who doesn't have a detailed knowledge of the area.

I will be compiling a list of these additions/corrections so the folks at Butler can then incorporate them into the next THC map printing. You can send your suggestions to me via PM & I'll contact you back with the result. PLEASE DO NOT SEND THE SUGGESTIONS DIRECTLY TO BUTLER. We need to keep this simple by only submitting 1 list with ALL your suggestions.
SUGGESTIONS WHICH ARE USED WILL GET YA A FREE THC 3RD ED MAP WHEN THEY COME OUT. I'll keep a list of each accepted submission & get your map sent out to ya.
