Crabb is fun and all, but I don't know why it's so popular.

its all we have on this side of town..........there are a couple turns here and there on the South side of town, but this is the best string of them. That is why I ride it. It is close. Has a certain degree of technicality. Can see all the way through most of the turns, unlike most other runs further north of here.

+1 billion. I live 1/2 mile off of Crabb and have ridden it !once! since i moved here 6 months ago, other than down and back to get to MSRH. It's a nice place to work on sweepers, and a great place to screw up or hit gravel and go wide into barbed wire. Many many MH'ers have lost pride, fairings, copays, and worse. Turn for turn it eats up bikes as fast as 3090. Stay West and North of where you are. Go i-10 and racer road out to Sealy and then northwest thru new ulm and frelsburg if you want nice roads. Just meet up with the west side SMR guys to learn the nice routes. I think they met Sundays in Brookshire at 9:00 or so. Check TSBA.org::

All chapters of the TSBA have regular rides, normally occurring weekly on Sunday morning. Departure times and locations can sometimes vary because of weather, other events, and so forth, so it is recommended that you check in the following three locations for up-to-date information:

The BBS, where almost all rides are announced and discussed. http://bbs.tsba.org
The individual website for the chapter in your area. http://www.tsba.org/chapters.html
The Calendar of Events. http://bbs.tsba.org/calendar.php



Requirements:
Although the club rides are open for anyone, the TSBA requires the following safety gear in order to participate in a club ride. Failing to meet the requirements below will result in you being asked to rejoin us at a future time when proper gear is present and being worn.

Full-face helmet
Solid boots that cover the ankles
Leather gloves
Long-sleeved leather, denim, textile gear, or other abrasion-resistant jacket
Full-length pants, preferably jeans, leather, or textile gear

Note: Although full-body riding gear is not required to participate in a group ride, it is strongly encouraged for all riders.

Yup. There is a bunch of country west and south of Crabb that has some nice little unpatrolled turns and straights on less than two lane roads. one left right in particular, in the middle of a cornfield, is a perfect place to work on 2nd gear corners and a fast transition in the middle. I'm still exploring out here.

I run crabb during the week when no one else is out there and everyone is at work. I REFUSE to ride in large groups on "spirited" rides. It has NEVER turned out good when I have been in large groups. Yes, I know my limits and know that my bike's limits FAR exceed my abilities. However, what about the guy infront of or behind me? Do they know their abilities? The bike's? Do they know the route well enough to be pushing that hard?
I go out and wierd times when there isnt much traffic and I ride with people I trust. That has worked for me so far and I am counting on it to work for me for some time still.
I am not trying to talk schit about these groups you were talking about. There are tons of people that thrive on those types of rides and I completely respect that. However, it is just not for me.
Also, the rides you were talking about, for the most part would take atleast 1.5 hours of FREEWAY riding just to get to the meet-spot. Then it is off to ride the route, then ride the hour or so back to the house. I can get up in the morning and do some stuff around the house, decide to run crab, head that way, run it 2 or 3 times, then head home in time to go to dinner with friends when they get off work.

Yup. From the Souf side Crabb is about the only close turns around. And for convenience it is nice.

But the person who started the thread asked:

Crabb River Road...

Any chance someone can give me an idea of the roads to hit in this area? I've never been down that way and would be coming from the Katy/Richmond area.


For this guy it's a probably not but a 20 minute extra ride to hit west versus south. The TSBA guys know the roads. Sure, group rides suck in general due to inexperience, but it is about the only way to get seat of the pants introduction to nice roads. I found 149 and the forest on a charity ride with 500 riders or so.

I agree with what you are saying here, I'm in the same boat.

Many thanks for all of the replies. Especially the PMs and emails offering to meet up and ride.

For the time being I'm just trying get a feel for this bike and get back used to riding again. I'm avoiding groups until I get a bit more confident. The last thing I want is to be responsible for bringing another rider down with me because I did something stupid. Plus I promised my wife I'd be a good boy if I got on a bike again.
