Solracer's Super Awesome ADVENTURE Hill Country Ride 2016.2 - May 20th, 21st, 22nd

When: TRAILER out Friday night to hotel in Austin. Ride North route Saturday, South route on Sunday. Plan to get back to Houston around 9pm Sunday.(this could change depending on how the day goes.)(NOTE** if weather looks to not be PERFECT 2-3 days out, I will cancel and go in May**)

How much: The entire trip should cost less than $200 if you split gas/trailer and hotel. The includes all fuel for truck and bikes and food.

How many miles? : Roughly 530 miles, 14.5 hours. We make several stops for food, gas, and photos.

This gives you an idea of where we will be riding.

Screenshot 2016 03 18 10 41 54 zpsj29zwcad


What should you expect? : All kinds of roads. long and swoopy, narrow and tight, water crossings (you may drive through water), cattle guards, sweet jumps(you WILL catch air), and some gravel. You should also expect beautiful scenery.

Pace: I'd call it intermediate, you may call it something else.... This isn't for new riders, this is more suited for guys who know their bike and limits. These guys aren't afraid to get a little dirty and have some fun. Cops aren't an issue except in one town which we wouldn't be hauling anyhow.

Your motorcycle: Should be well maintained and in good running condition. I prefer it could do at least 100, but not really necessary. Stretched Busa's would NOT have fun on this ride. I've had all kinds of bikes go on these rides and most everyone has a great time. (I used to lead with a Ninja 500r.) Tires and chain should be in good condition.


If you have any questions feel free to ask them here, or shoot me a PM. I'll update this thread as time goes on.

All the other, or both, involved riding a motorcycle. That's all I need

I've got one spot left for a bike in the bed of my truck. Gas would be split 3 ways.

You know, there are several roads where the grom would be fun on.
