Its not to bad.
I roar to bastrop not that long ago with my dad.
He was in more pain then I was, and he has a much more comfortable bike. 07 street glyde.

Just take a break when you need gas, hydrate, snack breath for a bit.
You should be good.

Not saying when you get home you won't be pooped, but its very do able.

And you're seat is a little more forgiving than mine.

Are you sure that is the route he took? Shiner and several other towns are not highlighted on the route you outlined. Looks like another fun route, though.

Captturbo, you came all the way back on I-10 straight?
Either way, nice route but I would prefer the back roads to a straight I-10 shot.
