Sounds like an awesome road trip. I've never been to 3 sisters but definitely want to..

300 miles in a full day is MAX for me.. On any kind of bike..

Maybe try to make this trip after the summer..

Just came back from a trip to the Sisters over the weekend. 3-days 1100 miles RT. Very few riders, probably cus of the rain forecast and it was Mother's Day weekend. Saw that "chopper" parked outside Harley's, but their menu didn't look too appetizing so we ate at TwoFatGuys instead.

Rode hwy55 up to Rocksprings this time. Lots of nice long sweepers. Great for scrubbing off chicken strips outside of trackdays. Very different flavor compared to the Sisters' tight turns and rollercoasters. A must run in my book from now on.

I think the sisters area would be great on a cruiser or big dual sport. I've hit it on a supermoto a few times (really beats the out of those motors) and many times hauling on a sport bike. It's pretty dangerous with the rocks, cliffsides, and wild life. I'd like to just enjoy the ride on a big bike sometime. It sure is a spectacular view and ride!

Probably passed less then 6 cars and bikes. Very open out here.

Really a lot of fun. I ran the go pro until
the batteries ran out. Don't know how much I got. Will check when I get home.

Well worth the trip.

Will run it CCW after lunch.
A weekday is the best time to go. Did you do any of the off-road and water crossings?

Adventure bikes love gravel. Curt's GS is at him for not finding any.

You are correct, no gravel in the sisters. Only gravel in the Fayetteville area and thru the Bastrop forest.

No. I wasn't aware of where to find them. Now I need to go back!

Pick up a Butler Hill Country Map. The dashed lines on those ma[ps are non-paved public roads. The red dashed lines are recommended (fun) roads. Lots of bump gates and water crossing throughout the Sisters area.

Of course you can probably find tracks to load in to your GPS that others have already recorded. On ADVRider look under the "Layin' down Tracks" sub-forum section. Some people probably have complete routes planned out through the area.
