College Station to Sugarland

So, I live in CS and most of my Houston friends are in Sugarland, right off of Hwy 6.
I was wondering if anyone knew of a good moto route to get down there.
Something other than hwy 6 and 290.

Depends on if you still want to make good time. There's tons of great roads you could take on the way but you'll turn a 1 hr -1 1/2 hr ride into a 2 to 2 1/2 hour ride. Is that what you want to do?

that is the easy way.. straight shot.. but you could go
hwy 30 to carlos turn right on 244 take that to 90 (dead ends) turn right go up about 2 miles (into anderson) turn left on 149 take all the way to 249 past montgomery etc... go up to 1960 or what ever road u want and go to 290 over to hwy 6
I hope that helps.. i think,,

I would say the best "scenic" (curvy) ways to get there would be Hwy 30 to Carlos, south on 244 to FM 3090. Take 3090 to Navasota. Go south on 6 to Hwy 105 and go east to FM362. Take FM362 souht all the way to Brookshire and go right on Hwy 90, then left on FM1489 till you hit FM1093 and take it in to Hwy 6...

the ride down is the fun ride, the ride home is usually the "expedient" trip.

but 90mph? thats so hard to maintain(see my signature)on that drive.

If this were a planned ride with a specific date/time, I could understand not wanting to post a route for all to see - LEO could camp out and wait. But this isn't a ride, just route ideas for a guy that will be going back and forth every so often.

Maps are public domain.

Sorry Martin, I gotta disagree on this one.

So would it be too much to ask to email or pm the routes instead. I'll pm you later.
