If you google map it you'll see that you can run from Fullshear up to Monaville on 359 and it's a nice cruise... then cross on 529 and come back down to Brookshire on 362... lotsa nice curves and some decent scenery.

If you're going to be out this weekend, I have a few recommendations (since I live here I know the road conditions better than most)...

1) Take a couple of passes over the road before you "haul "... there is a lot of loose gravel the size of small boulders from the trucks and local farmers coming on and off the highway. It's going to be like that until the gravel packs down and until they are actually finished with the entire job (as they are still coming on and off the road a lot). If you take a few scouting runs, you'll know where to slow up and watch for trash in the road.

2) Watch for the bicyclers... they have been out in force every weekend and they like to ride 3 wide like they don't have to obey traffic laws like the rest of us. Luckily, the sherrif's dept has been cracking down on them for riding in packs instead of single file.

3) Don't haul through the brookshire area... the cops there don't mess about... if they tag you for more than 10 over, they will throw you in jail for the entire of the weekend and impound your bike... they pretty much the typical "small town" douchebags that you'd think they are. LOL

4) If you see a fat guy on a blue SV... don't crowd him... he's old and slow and looks a lot like me. Thanks. LOL

Hope to see some folks out here ... I'll be out and about early Saturday morning... the "Monument" and the Outlet Mall (where the Kawi shop used to be). both make good meeting spots... Also, don't be afraid to head north on 359 towards Hempstead... the first half of that ride has a few nice curves and some nice scenery. Just watch the turn Bozeman road because it's a blind curve with 2 intersections in the middle of it going both ways and there have been a LOT of fatalities ... The "parrot" in Monaville makes a good spot to stop and there's fuel right accross the street.

Johnny
+1 on the bicyclists. Last time we went they were having some kind of event and cops directing traffic. Tons of bikes including children riders. We had to shut it down and just cruise.

Thanks for the post

You should take it easy your first time around any curve. A rider went down right in front of me on this route before. It's not as easy as Crabb but it's not like the turns at GSS or 3090 either.

If you guys want to do the north side of 10 start from the 359 > 1458 direction, because 1458 from I-10 the road is stripped, the other lane is good though. There's a few dirty sections, but nothing horrible, and most of the dirt is in the straights. That's as of about 25 minutes ago

We'll be leaving PP1 around 8:15. Once we get to the second meet point we'll divide into groups based on desired pace
