6 Man Labor Day Hill Country Ride

Every year a few of us head over to the hill country for a Labor Day ride. This year a couple of guys couldn't make it, so we're looking for up to three more guys to go this year. We will leave Friday, 8/29 around 10:00am and be back sometime Monday evening.

This will not be a noob ride, and leathers are highly recommended. Plan on at least 700 miles of riding (including the Three Sisters), and if you're not 100% comfortable on your bike and confident in your abilities, this is not the ride for you. You also need to be able to adapt to changing road conditions on the fly. It's fun where we're going, but the roads can get sketchy due to debris.

We'll be staying near Leakey, and due to limited parking, we will all be riding up there together. Trailers will be provided for the trip, and we will split travel fuel and lodging equally. The weekend should cost each person no more than $250 total (travel, lodging, food and riding fuel). The more people that go, the cheaper the fuel and lodging. PM me to arrange bike drop off if necessary.

Here's an idea of what you'll be in for if you join.

Three sisters ride?

I have plans this year on Labor Day but there's always next year.
I did this trip in May but I caged it with the bike in the truck. Are you guys riding from the HOU? Just curious about your logistics. Thanks sounds like a blast. We didn't see any cops at all. But be careful because as you guys know your out there all alone which is cool. We did it during the middle of the week because we didn't want to get stuck behind the cool Harley Guys. Be safe my brothers.

We trailer out. Stay local, and ride for three days. Were off most of the main roads.
