Yes. I will come then. Where are we meeting at in Gatesville?

Thanks Dahveed... you didn't have to do that. It will be good to see you again. We can do whatever you guys want for a route, but being as hot as it is, I say we stay on paved roads so we can keep the speed up and stay cooler.

Mr2mch, I look forward to meeting you. I saw your post with your St4s forsale. Beautiful bike. Don't bring it, or I will want to buy it. I am new. This Monster is my first bike. While I love it, I have already been on one big trip (to the Appalachian Mtns), and I am planning a trip right now to Million$, Moab, Bryce Canyon, Devils Hwy 191, etc etc and I wish I had a sport touring bike to do these longer trips.
I would love to have a better bike for touring, but I definitley can not afford one right now, but it is good to dream a little.

yeah, I'm not really looking right now (just wishing). I love my bike! But an FJR might be in my future.

84 and 116 sounds good to me.

No worries. Glad to change my schedule to ride with you again. I vote paved too.

Schizz, let me know if you want to join us and behold the wonder that is the KLR.

Coupla things...

Mueller's BBQ in Taylor, TX...very good brisket if you get the very fatty burnt ends that they give away for free while you're waiting in line. These guys take some liberties with black pepper...jeebus. I wasn't impressed at all with the overall quality. Long ass wait...Black pepper overloaded meat. The only saving grace was the beef rib...very meaty...very good.

Ruby's BBQ in Austin (not RUDY...RUBY) featured in the Austin Chronicle...and on NO RESERVATIONS. I ordered about 15 bucks worth of brisket, ribs, and sides. I couldn't eat any of it. I'll eat some shit...but I literally have had better 'que at Applebees. Dry...over-salty meat accompainied by sides that tasted like spoiled milk. Fuck me I was pissed.

Salt Lick (Driftwood location) is where it's at...followed by Smitty's Market in Lockhart. Still looking for #3...

Good meat meet. Thanks for the route suggestions coming home Mr2!!! I followed them exactly -- very good roads. I took 970 over at the end. Crazy hot out there.

Glad ya enjoyed the ride back home....even in the heat. We'll try to ride more of the stuff I've got listed on the Google map down in the area around Burnet/Lampassas or even further south....Gillespie/Blanco Co when the heat isn't so bad.


Schoepf's BBQ in Belton... I like the pork chops & the chicken most (& the sauce!).My rib was pretty good this time too.The sirloin could have been a bit better(but I have had some very choice cuts before too) The jalepeno sausage was good but I think I prefer the medium overall.

so... Ghost?? Dahveed??? survey says.......

I thought the rib by itself was fair to good - maybe a 6, but the sauce really did compliment it well.

The chicken was good, maybe a 7. Once again I thought the sauce was good with the chicken.

The pork chop was very good. An 8. The mild sausage I had of Ghosts was also an 8 - some really nice flavor there.

The venison sausage was a 7. Schoepf's downfall was the beef. Both the brisket and steak I had a sample of were ok. Maybe a 5-6. Ok, now I'm hungry, so I gotta go to lunch.

I used to eat at Smokey J's right there at FM620 and FM2222. I always thought it was pretty good. It's kind of fast food BBQ. Havent eaten there in a while.
