Spring Break!

OK so I have a week in March for Spring Break and Im want to take my motorcycle somewhere... Im new to Texas and I dont know where the good places to go are, so I though I would ask yall for suggestions/ideas!

Heres some ideas Ive came up with so far:

1) Corpus Christi
-Are there any decent beaches around there?
- Any good riding roads around there?
2) South Padre Island
- Its pretty there, but I dont want to deal with the hoards of crazy drunk college kids.
3) Road Trip... somewhere :dontknow:
-Ive never seen any other parts of Texas so it would be fun to just go drive around and see whats out there



So what would be some good Texas (or neighboring state) destinations to do on a motorcycle? Thanks for the help!

Send a message via AIM to Gryphin
why dont you ride up to austin and go ride around that area.
maybe visit the riverwalk or whatever in SA.
or ride out to the three sisters just to the west of SA.

and no place is really safe to ride solo, esp far from home.

Go to the Hill Country west of Austin / San Antonio.
Stay either in Fredricksburg or Kerrville. (I usually stay at the Y.O. Ranch in Kerrville, they're very motorcycle friendly)
Lot's of stuff to do and see, and some of the best motorcycle roads in the state.
You'll also be not too far from San Antonio or even New Braunfels if you want to do sometihng non bike related.

Yeah, there are some really nice roads out west of Austin.
Marble Falls down toward Leakey (west of San Antonio).
If you stay in Fredricksburg there are a lot of shops and interesting places to eat. Plus it's centrally located and big enough to offer a choice of lodging.

Pm me if you want more suggestions or details.

This would be your best bet for fun and riding.

Also +1 to what gryphin said. You don't have anyone that could go with you? Road trips are fun and all, but I wouldn't travel new roads without a companion. You just never know what could happen :/: and it would suck if you went down without anyone knowing where you were.

+1 billion of FBG. Great B&B's, great rides in all directions, and lots of sport tour riders visit all the time so there is always a group to ride with if you are solo.

Or, go to Kerrville. It is motorcycle friendly and has the same basic rides as FBG. Plus, you can ride the river road to see the "stonehenge" replica.

Here's what I might try to do....

Day 1: Ride out thru Austin. Take the scenic way on the north side of Lake Travis and then head south to FBG.

Day 2: Ride the Bandera loop, then hit up San Antonio riverwalk.

Day 3: Hit up the three sisters thru Leakey and Vanderpool and Camp Wood.

Day 4: Come back to Houston thru new Braunfels. Make sure to stop in Gruene for a visit to the dance hall and the Grist Mill restaurant.

One question...can I come?

Or, go to Eureka or Hot Springs Arkansas (450 or 500 miles away versus 225 or so to the Hill Country) and really get away from it all. It all depends on the temps where I'd try to go.

GO camp on the Guadalupe we have always had a blast but you will need some one to drive with the camping gear.... + not a bad idea to have a follow vehicle in case of a brake down or somthin
