V-Strom-a-thon

On day two we headed east towards Click and a more wooded landscape. First stop Oxford.























Off to Harry's on the Loop for lunch, a well known biker hangout on the Willow City Loop in the middle of nowhere.





On our way to Castell it heated up greatly so finding a shady break stop was difficult.



We were so tempted to stop here and jump in but the group photo shoot and closing ceremonies were at hand.



Everyone gathered on the banks of the Llano for the festivities.





Tip'o the hat to these chaps, Mr2mch (Rod) and Timbercat (Lee) for the effort. See you at V-Strom-a-thon 2!

Time Marches On!

Wow! Where has time gone? A new job this summer has killed my motorcycle adventures but hopefully that will end soon with a new work schedule. I did manage to get out a month ago and let the DRZ mangle me quite well. Remember kiddo's, distracted driving kills!





I had just refueled and was attempting to reset the overly complicated odometer when I drifted over against a curb and fell. At least it was on grass. Couple scratches on the plastic is all but pulled shoulder ligaments and cracked some riblets. Oh well, soldier on! After three weeks to the day I couldn't resist an opportunity to ride. I should have waited, not enough strength in shoulder yet.







No harm done but decided to stick with light street riding for awhile. I went to Manor for an awesome vintage motorcycle show hosted by Austin's Roadrunners. The weather has finally broken here in Tejas and the triple digits are gone. Lots of events happening!

The Good Luck Grill hosted the event. What an awesome venue.



A few parking lot queens.









I rode my GB500 and stayed on pavement!



So many sweet rides. A Ducati rickshaw, a Morgan with a J.A.P. motor, Yamaha XS650 tracker not to mention the Vincents!

















Street riding is not so bad, but I prefer gravel travel! Stay tuned!

Crap Mudcold, I bet that Shoulder hurt. It's a good thing that you had the Kevlar T shirt on. It could have been bad!

Hey! I like the sound of that. My new motto..."It could have been bad!" Thanks Don.

Dang, I didn't know about the bike show and I'm really sorry that I missed it! I used to go to their show many years ago when it was at Ski Shores. Thanks for the photos.

This land is your land, this land is my land...

Well maybe not so much anymore. Recent budget cuts have finally affected our area lakes and the Army Corps of Engineers land and parks around them. About three quarters of them are now closed from 1 October until 1 March. Unbelievable. Texas weather for outdoor activities is virtually year round. I hope it's not illegal to take photographs anymore! Well we still have a couple jewels available and I took advantage of a recent rain to visit one and play in the mud a bit.





Got in over my head some on these ledges.





Many little used roads.



Off to the mud!









Many wooded areas also.





Had to take a few "shortcuts."







Took a break after a hillclimb that surprised me.





Overall awesome day!
