How fast is the Bluewater highway route? I ask because the only street bike I have running is my KE100, which is a fun little bike but is really straining at 50mph and above. 40-45 it is fairly comfortable (for a two stroke on semi-knobbies) and I am looking for some low speed routes to ride this spring.

I've ridden the ferry several times in the my lifetime and have never had to put up with cops or drunks - and I've only seen the occasional long wait time.

Galveston route..? Not 45?

Don't cross the causeway with expired anything.

+1 on that! I've seen the cops cruising back and forth looking for expired stickers and handing out tickets. Once your'e in line there is no where to go.
