Well, it was another GREAT day in Central Texas. It was just str8 and myself on the ride (I know there HAVE to be more people in this area of Texas), but we still had a blast.
We met up at about 8:30, and I had redneck engineered a mount for my GPS on my bike. Made life much easier, as I had programmed in the route we wanted to take the night before. We departed in search of good roads and breakfast. Only problem is the small towns we were going through had nothing by MickeyDs open on Sunday morning. We stopped off after about an hour of riding to eat, then headed back on our way.
On the way, we passed (I kid you not) a castle. No I did not get a picture of the castle, but I found the website for the castle here.
Here are the pics from the trip. This time, I got several pics, but str8 could only get pics of his kitchen, as that was where his camera was during the ride...
You know the day will be great when one of the first roads has a sign like this:
Zooming back a little:
and a little more:
Here we are at an overlook off of SR-4
View from the overlook:
This is at Inks Lake State Park, it was a really cool place. I think I will go back with wife and kids and go camping.
Here is a view of the lake with a boat and jet ski out playing....
This is at the end of the ride, at the gas station we met at in the morning...
Here is the ride summary. Total on the road was 222 miles for me, about 145 miles for the loop together. I have blacked out the max speed to protect the almost innocent.
Saw many GREAT places to get pictures, but was too busy riding. Maybe next time.
Thanks for a great ride again str8,
