i cant access internet at work anymore.. so i havent been to MH in a few days....I would video'd my trip if I woulda known ya'll were looking for biggy size .


so i took Hoover (dirt road) to 362. up to waller, 290 to beltway, beltway to 45, ...no jacket. just my t-shirt. i was absolutely fine, (i had my jacket with me...but i didnt use it )


I just wanted to be THAT GUY on a bike. simply in jeans and T-shirt, and knee+elbow pads.it worked. at any stop people asked if i was cold."you see any goosebumps?"

"uuuugh?....no!"

"im not cold at all"...

truth to tell it was cold, but i have taught myself not to shake. shaking creates body heat, but is wicked away, and you can feel it, which causes deeper shaking...repeat. repeat.

teach yourself not to shake and your not as cold. but it is dangerous, as it can lower body temps.


anyways i was having a blast, and still traveling faster than the rest of traffic (i was still at freeway and above speeds for 90 percent of the way)

How come your pants are not wet, or you just took it out of the garage for the picture
Usually when you ride in the rain your pants get wet, same apply in the snow

I went outside to take a couple of pics of my kid in the snow and my camera was wet after a couple of minutes. Didnt your pants get all soaked too? Screw that, my car is nice and warm. Heated seats are nice.....

At least you had temps in the 30s. Morning temperature started at 20 every morning I rode in Alpine last week.

Snow on Friday was insane. Didn't melt off until 4:00. I did ride about town in the afternoon.

11137 1205532857092 1191769199 30576105 40564 n

That is US90 heading to Marfa in the background.

Worth the trip, though...
