1-4-2014 NOOB-MOD ride to Fayetteville

TIME - KSU 7:30 AM no exceptions
Location - Shell Station -Corner of 1463 and I-10 (across from Good Old Boys)
Destination - Fayetteville
Pace -Noob to moderate, depends on who shows up.
Should be back by 11:00 to 11:30 AM and will either stop for breakfast at Orsaks(fayetteville) or a burger at Midway or JDubs in Katy.

Must haves-(3 G's)
Gear(preferably warm)-helmet, pants, gloves, jacket the usual.
Gas-not stopping for gas be filled up when leaving(you can gas up in Fayetteville) and count on about 120 miles (round trip)
Guts-May hit a bit of gravel but not much(again going to depend on who shows and what they are riding) I will change the route to accomodate.

Insurance
PM me if you have any questions.

Gravel?

Are you considering the little construction we spoke of before the last ride? Or an actual gravel road?

There is a short section of road about 300 feet that is gravel. However I can bypass it and stay on tarmac.

Gotcha... think i ran into that taking the long way home from Brenham one time. Was just checking the GPS and going anywhere that WASN'T straight.
For 300 feet... guys can just cruise at 10mph. to avoid any mishaps or rock chips.

I sometimes take Trenkmann off of HWY36. It is about the 300 feet or so of gravel. Going slow certainly minimizes any issues. Any ducs, aprilia or lucar I stay off the gravel.
