Im all for back roads that not alot of people know about!

Another one is that road that cuts across from 35 through Liverpoll over to 2004 is a good one!

No bridges in Houston! thats a good way to get killed and more importantly F-up your bike!

Anyhow, try it while you are there. I'm planning an RV trip next year to do the tail of the dragon.

Planning to do it next year but heard that it gets pretty congested with bikes and what not lately, and some who had done it, recommended me to some other branches of roads in the area and that there are plenty . Is that true?

Liverpool cops have nothing better to do than hang out at that one bar and pull people over for no reason.

Going from 35 towards Liverpool, cross the rr tracks and the first left. There's a "bar" off to the right about a block or 2 up that road. I think the police station is in the back. LOL.

I enjoy tearing up the freeway interchanges on the week nights and a few back road routes on the weekend.

Levee road? That's a good one, or at least it was. Last time I wanted to run it, it was tore up, being resurfaced. Hopefully went they get it done they'll sweep it too. There's an aggregate quarry off one of the curves with a dirt road. The dump trucks get gravel all over the curves, which can be a bit annoying.

I actually just discovered the road between 35 and 2004 through Livershit in the day time. I'da driven it before at night. I was riding through it in my truck exploring. It was a blast to drive at speed, but my radar detector caught some bacon. Dangerous. At the end of it though, is CR227 I think which goes to Bastrop Marina and then 523. There are some interesting curves there and then some massive straights. The roads are good condition, you could presumably do some hooliganing on them. Though I'm sure they get Brazoria Co sheriff patrols.

Yeah, me an the wife took the kids to the beach and I thought levee road would be fun. It's not too broken up anymore and last 1/4 or so looks resurfaced. Not much in the way of gravel either. Granted, with the levee road, if you get it wrong things would get nasty real fast since both sides drop off about 30 feet or so. LOL

Only cops I saw were constables near the plant on 2004 and one sitting in front of that park in oyster creek.

If I go off of levee road, I can only hope that the gopro is rolling. That would be some sweet footage for the interwebs. You might lose your bike to the creek, but if you are AGATT, not going an outrageous speed, and dont hit a truck, tree or barricade, you'll probably walk away unscathed. Probably.
