Need some Austin area scenic routes...

I'm a new Austin area motorcyclist. I've got 10+ years on a bike but it's been a while (2 years) and it'll be the first time I have ridden since moving to the Austin area. Where are some good places to ride?

That's a deathtrap. I'll avoid 2222 due to the sheer number of cars on the road.

My favorite route I would do this at least 4-6 time a month.

be sure to stop in driftwood at the Salt Lick BBQ for the best BBQ in texas..

If you are talking about a nice long ride, take 35 up to Cedar Park and jump on 1431 westbound out to PackSaddle mountain past Marble Falls. Talk about great curves and elevation changes!! I miss those roads

Oh, and watch out for deer (and other cars) but there is a section of 1431 that is owed by a rancher, you will notice the cattle guards when you cross them, then you know it's time to watch out for deer, cows, e-Motorcycles Unlimited's and elk!

1431 is great!

I live two miles from Lime Creek!

Even 620 from Comanche Trail to Lakeway is a fantastic sweeper!

I have found some really cool backroads going to Blanco and Johnson City. I'll post up more tomorrow.

That's a nice ride. Be sure to stop by Stonehenge for the obligatory foto opp.

you aware that the site formerly known as Stonehenge is now a vacant lot?

Yup, Stonehenge moved into town when the owners of the property it was on decided to sell that prime real estate.

I have a picture of it somewhere I will post.
