Big Bend Trip - photos

Tim and I met up with Buzz and Steve and rode the FJR's out from Houston to Alpine Tx to use as our base camp for riding Big Bend State Park and around the Ft Davis area. We stayed at the Sunday House Inn in Alpine and it was a decent motel.

The total distance out and back was 1985 miles.. We rode some of the best routes in Texas on this one because we came back through the hill country west of Kerrville Tx.

this link will take you to a Photobucket slide show of our pictures. Use the "Full Screen" option in the lower right of the screen.

Enjoy this magnificent splendor. If you have never been out there, these pictures don't begin to show what it really looks like.

The first morning we were in Alpine the humidity was seven percent.

Please note the dates on the pics are wrong because some idiot set the date wrong in the camera.
We were there on March 30 - April 4th 2011.

here are Tim's pics - the first couple of pics with wooded hills are in the Hill Country west of Bandera Tx.

And I like the FJR very well.

It does Super Sport Touring very well for me and has done so for the 82,500 miles it has on the odometer.

most days it was great with temps in the mid-80's but Saturday when we went down into Big Bend and then to Terlingua and Presidio it was 100 degrees in Terlingua and 103 at 4:30 in Presidio.

River Road was very warm.

It cooled off when we headed back north out of Presidio.

All in all it was another great trip on the FJR.
