Different Route N/NW. . .

Not sure if anyone runs this route, would like feedback about the roads/road conditions. I just wanted to try something a little different. . . .

Ride starts out in Waller, 290 and 362. Ride ends there as well, but we make it as far as 3090 and 244. I'll PM you the map of the route I created, its got A LOT of turns in it of course

There are some decent ones out there, depending where you go.

362 north of 1488 now has a nice grease trail thru the best corners, for the first few miles.

yeah, or oil, just a long line, looks like a leaking tank or something, right down the middle of the lane.

Avoid 2979 as I recently learned one of the boss men for the sheriff dept. lives on that road and makes it a point to get the bikers caught and or stopped.

I ran this route just before I tracked my bike out...it's pretty nice, the roads are fairly narrow though. Nice smooth pavement for the most part.

I believe he just sits out on his porch in the morning with a cup a coffee and calls in to his guys as needed. Couple months ago we had one pass us on 1488 and we were all clear getting onto 2979, but just before Hwy 6 he had turned around to check up on us and chased us down. Overall nice officer and he was who informed us about his boss living a mile or so back where we buzzed by him on his porch.

Maybe I'll just run 2979 on my way back to 362 and 290
