Twisted sister loop, how long does it take?

For those of you that have ridden the hill country, how long does the loop take? Planning on hitting it when we head up for COTA. Just wondering how much time to allocate for it. Its approximately 100 miles. Wondering if I have enough time to do it cw and ccw. If not, any particular way y'all recommend doing over the other, reasons why? I'm more comfortable to my right, so if I have to choose it will probably be cw. Would like to do it more than once but we're only going 1 day early. Can't devote the whole weekend to riding it like I'd like to but still want to ride it since we'll be out that way. And it will be our first time riding it, so it won't be as fat as some of you.

It depends on how many Harley riders are out there.

It is a little over 100 miles. Usually takes 2.5 - 3 hours depending on how many breaks we take. When we go we usually do two loops in a single day. Sometimes a little more.

We have to go back to Austin that night. The route I have pictured is about 450 miles round trip. Not much time to stop and take pictures/sight see. Especially since we won't be getting started until about 10am.

Well, I'd suggest avoiding 336 because that road is full of rocks ever since they widened a few sections of it. There's one small section of it that's actually fun still but it only takes a few minutes to do. It's hardly worth riding out there unless you do that section over and over and over like I did on my last solo trip out there

335 also has some sections that they widened but it's really just at the end towards hwy41. You could skip 336 and take 337 to hwy55 to 41 to 335 and back down 337.

How are you able to pull that off on a single tank of gas? We had a really hard time making it back to town at my old pace. I was sweating bullets but managed to make it...barely...coasted into the station litterally!

There's gas pumps in Camp Wood and Coldsprings.
