**Alamo City (San Antonio, TX) Official Thread **

Just wanted to make an official thread for San Antonio. This way we can share routes, organize rides, and just plain talk local stuff.

Im new to dual sporting so i will introduce my self. My name is Polo i used to ride a CR-80 and XR-250 when i was 13-17 im now 27 and just until last year bought a bike again. The difference was i bought a street bike a 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 evo. I love that bike but i kind of missed going off the map and into the trails so i just decided to pull the trigger on an F800GS Adventure last friday. Plan to do a lot of riding and hoped that you guys could share some nice dirt roads around town.

Here is my new horse:

There is a group of mostly dual sport riders that meet every Friday morning for breakfast before work at the Thousand Oaks Cafe 1271 Austin Hwy in San Antonio. Most people show up 6-6:30 and leave about 7:30.

There are several of us here. I've sent a pm to the other San Antonio guys. Things is we don't often go riding together as a group. Therefore we don't often post in this Regional.

Let me try and round them up so we can get to know more folks!

I moved here back in April from VA. Haven't gotten out a whole lot since I've been here, but I ride this to work every day....

Spotted a new R1200GS with led's today on wilderness oak. Bike was looking very sharp, anybody on here?

Got a little "lost" today and it was totally worth it!

Yep the last 3 are in borne. The First one is around a dirt road i found around Stone Oak park .

Went out to Bandera today and had a blast until the point where there was a one lane water crossing and a car came out of no where pretty fast. I hit the rear brake and swerved to avoid him and the bike fell on the water crossing edge. It was so mucky that lifting up the bike was a problem since i was slipping and i was afraid it might drop it again in a deeper part. Thankfully a park ranger was passing by and helped me out, the damn cager didn't even stop to help. Bike is ok except for a couple of scratches on the side cases and engine guard.
