If you are going that way I would recommend riding the 3 sisters. Hands down the best roads and also the most dangerous in Texas

If you plan to trailer and ride all day, do the Sisters. Or around Austin. Either one has enough great roads to spend a day on. Or just do a 3 day ride and hit them all.

Agree. The roads there are nice. There are good roads all over the place. Talk to locals and they can tell ya less known twisty roads. Beware of gravel on Lime Creek. My front end stepped waaaay out in a turn. No room to run off if you fug up a turn either.

Three sisters FM 335, FM 336, FM 337 .

Hotnanas and I rode 335 and 337 a couple of years ago and we found out a solo rider fell of a cliff and was not found until almost a week later. Awesome twisty roads and rolling hills are really cool. Nice scenery too.

Rode Lime creek with a group and one rider crashed/dropped his bike 3 times almost on the same corner. Nice road. However, as previously stated, beware of gravel and heavier traffic due to new houses being built.

Be careful out there and enjoy the ride.

Where was the road that guy at the convenient store told us about that took us to the park? I liked that road better than lime creek.

I rode Lime creek last weekend and it was a blast! Be careful out there as the turns can sneak up on anyone.

Best bet on those roads for those of us that don't live there, is to use the old slow in, fast out point and shoot. Don't try and run race lines; especially on Lime Creek. Also be prepared for driveways and bicycles.

Also look up north of 1431; there are some good ones up there as well.

My advice... Take it easy and ride in your comfort level! Like others have said there is no room for mistakes, loose gravel here and there and all around some badass roads to ride... You will like them at least I did!

Lime creek is best experienced on a tard. Some really tight turns through there.
I'd want a sport tourer for the rest of the hill country though.

After last weekend I can definitely say +1 on the sisters. Though, it is another 2.5 to three hours past Austin though. Not really close.

As far as Austin goes... There is hardly a road around Austin that is not better than the best roads in Houston. You just can't go wrong.
