I swear the shower turned brown when I washed the mud off.. then again, I can't see anything without my glasses so it was probably all in my head.

Definitely want to do it again!! Next time, I'm going to dig out my little helmet cam and take some seizure inducing video. I wish we had footage going through the safari park! Plus I'd have great footage of that crazy cow that was spooked and running back and forth on the road.. AND... I was just close enough that I may have been able to capture when that buzzard bounced off of your shoulder, Ghost!!

I'm more sore than I should be this morning. Dang. Slept like a baby and woke up like I'd been in car wreck. Maybe I need to change my name to slowsoreoldguy.

Had a bunch of fun. And Big Thanks for keeping me mostly out of the pics and vid's. (We can work on completely keeping me out. ;))

Great group of fellas. No egos or issues showing. Just good riding. Ice skating in Central Texas? Yep. That's what street tires feel like on some of that loose shit we were on. But it was a great day.

Thanks again, guys.

To inmates and ? for pancake

Now, Thats what Im talking about. Good friends , good ride, nobody hurt. Ive got to get back so I can sit in the saddle for 5 hours. Since I was born again( 7 months ago) I have discovered again that I like dirt. Not road. I dont like dust either because I lost two of my lives on a dusty road, and only about 3 minits apart too. Pancake, those are good looking tires. are they DOT approved? Whats the story and where can I buy them? Hows the road handling?

As to the Rally Raid Loop (long mixed surface ride at "pace") I'm liking what we have so far. Just need to tighten it up a little more and have a nice closing session back to the Circle T.

May scout some more Monday.

What direction are ya headed and when? I will not lie I was sore as hell today...my left knee was killing me once I got to the house. I am thinking of sneaking the KLX around in the morning...I lost the license/inspection plate around Osage and have not found it so I am riding under the radar if I go. Probably need to stay local to Bosque Coryell county. Are you headed west?

Has Been, Pancake is running DOT approved Mefo rear and Kenda front. I like the tread pattern of the Mefo. I guaranty he was doing better than me on slick Anakees I was checking his tires our at one of our stops...damn they wouldn't fit

Call me. I don't have plans and if you want to sneak something around we can take my KLR. A little more comfort for that knee.

Great scouting trip. The Loop is taking shape. Hootin' and hollerin' in the hills west of Hamilton. No one fell down although it was another day of ice-skating on loose shit. Some big views. One fast coyote. Another great day. Thanks, fellas. Really good riding. Great to meet you IRL TXJames.

I finally found CR 3137, nice little hill climb, and then rode to 224 and 4180. everything pretty dry and dusty, had some fun though, and FM 182 was one beautiful, fast run. This pic is of 224, right? Sure looks different from the pic that you guys posted....
