The 500's seat does well. I do some more rides like this again soon. But I have already begun planning an Austin area trip too. CANT WAIT!

Was a great ride, can't wait to do it again... As far as Gay Hill, I back tracked and picked up some maps chris had dropped (For the Fourth time) and when I came back they all three had a smile on their face, I didn't bother to ask why... haha Anyhow, great ride, great weather, great scenary, and great fun!

It was a great ride…and a trip to Austin does not sound like a bad idea at all….I had ot been on 390 before and as Chris mentioned we were all very please with what the road had to offer. Great fun…great people…let’s do it again soon.

Gay Hill I have recollection...

2 day trip to Austin is the way to go.. lots of good roads around there. You can actually do a two day and make it down to around San Antonio and some more great roads.

I almost went to Austin this weekend but had other things to do. Let me know if you need any roads. Last trip we left at 7:30, went around Austin to Marble Falls, then down to Fredericksburg, and ended up in San Antonio by 4 PM or so. Matter of fact, might be able to score a room for the night depending on number of peeps and planned route.

I also stayed in Marble Falls last year and it's nice up there.
