Nice Sunny Day to Play in Texas
Str8 and I met up this morning for some fun and slightly more adventure then we bargained for. I was there on my Speed Triple and Str8 had his 919. We met at about 8:45 Sunday morning and proceeded to do the “I don’t know, what roads did you want to ride?”
Several months ago, before the floods hit central Texas, I had an enjoyable ride on a couple of roads close to Austin, Tx with the Triumph RAT pack. One in particular that stuck out was Cow Creek Rd. We finally decided to try that road out. I plugged it in the GPS to see where it was in relation to where we were, and as luck would have it, it was fairly close and we could ride it and get back to our houses by around 1:00 – 2:00 in the afternoon (was supposed to be mid 90 by 2:00).
I have attached a map and several pictures I snapped during the ride. I know Str8 has some pics he will be posting as well. When we got to Cow Creek Rd, it had been pretty beat up during the floods in Marble Falls. There were sections that had completely washed out and other were pot hole haven.
There was one spot where the bridge was almost finished being rebuilt after being washed out and we went around the road closed signs to stay out of the water. There was one other place where we had no such luck. We didn’t realize we needed adventure bikes. There we were, running through the creek having the bikes’ rear ends do the cha-cha with the rocks under us.
Great ride, however, great weather (although a little warm towards the end) and wonderful company. Hopefully we can do it again soon, before he heads over the pond. Anyone else in Central Texas up for a ride?
