i lived in austin for a couple of years. i hate the people there. you only have 2 kinds of people there. bums and too cool emo types.

also, the roads are pretty good... until you are stuck in rush hour on 35 or 183. my miata probably lost a couple of years off of it's life because of rush hour. i lost my power steering/air conditioning pully on my miata, and some idler pulley on my taurus because of the stop and crawl traffic in austin.

oh, and i hate the people there.

one redeeming thing though, going to ihop or walmart past midnight is a strange experience.

kirby lane sucks.

I agree... Houston is not all bad but Austin roads sure make Houston roads look pretty dull. lol

A girl i know up here has 2 VIP tickets to the ROT rally next weekend. We werent going to stay through until next weekend but i wouldnt mind going to check it out and i really dont want to go back to houston and come back up a few days later. We will prob just stay til then....

I lived out on Commanche Trail for awhile... yep some of the roads are nice...

...as long as their dry and the visibility is good. A LOT of days/nights/eve with fog and damp streets that could really mess folx up if they weren't careful (and quite often, they werent).

I went to the ROT rally last year and it was pretty fun. I didnt see many of them deviate from the interstate, 6th, and the bars. I went riding on the usual streets and still had a good time out there.

We always make a slow pass first before we really get into it. Dont wanna haul and come across something unexpected.

And yeah, I hope the ROT rally is good this year. I hear its supposed to be pretty bad .

It was fun last year. 6th is open to bike parking all weekend and blocked off to cars as usual. I agree. DEFINITELY DO A SWEEP FIRST. We have seen some surprises out there before too (gravel, new pot holes, random junk in the road).

Made a trip to and From Marble Falls.. hit up Lime Creek and 1431. Not to much traffic, guess all the ROT'Ride Smart were partying and not riding.

It was HOT, but still a nice ride. 1431 reminds me of 337, and Lime Creek is definately tight. 390, 21, 153, and the usual suspects around Fayetteville.

FYI 949 sucks, loose gravel and tar. Hope they plan to repave, if not that road is done.

We rode Lime Creek and 1431... Both bad routes to ride...
