Eh, it's Ok. It's got the basics that almost everyone that does 200-mile days knows already, and it completely ignores the NE and East Texas areas.

It's more fun to go out and wander and make up your own mnd. After all, some of us like tight turns, some like sweepers, some like elevation changes, and some just like the scenery! "Best Roads" is subjective...

Take a map and a highlighter out on a day when you have nowhere to be. It's fun!

Hey now, I am the one that built that map! Cut me some slack on it. It was a lot of work. I had to save the map in polish format and make changes in a text file then recompile it just to get it together. Sorry that I left out my kingwood route and the cleveland area routes I have.

Dang Squeak, it's like if you didn't come up with it then it sucks. That's just not the case. Relax, besides the last time I think you posted something like this you didn't make it to where everyone could save it and I know we couldn't zoom in on it. chill out.

And some just like to lead 20 sport bikes to a patch of dirt and gravel and then out perform them! :laughing6

Oh, I believe you.
Last time I was there with two other buddies, we saw well over 10 DPS.

Yes and cops are everywhere.
You can pretty much expect them to be right behind the hill, hide around side of the road, in between cars coming from the other direction or behind you.

Yeah the NE side is only used for slower meanndering rides. Unless of course you want to go under the jail. Oh and the route that goes around the lake is hwy224. Nice ups and downs with cages pulling boat trailers. It reminds me of Lime Creek Rd in Austin.

I wasn't cutting the map short, I just didn't think it was the golden chalice of routes that some of y'all think. Personally I wouldn't want those posted because then they'd be littered with bikes.

Then again, like I said - "best roads" is subjective.

Golden chalice...no. But where else can you zoom in on Sealy, screen print it, and send it to your buddy to show him how to get to the right intersection. I disregard the green highlighted routes and find my own way.

Obviously, those who ride a lot and know a bunch of roads know a lot of stuff by memory.

If there is a better map out there let me know. 'Till then, thanks Brian. I love this map. I use it every time I head out to Austin. But will you just hurry up and make a whole state of Texas map?

To print this, better have a plotter.
