WANTED: CENTRAL TEXAS ADVers

Calling all Central Texas ADV Riders... Looking to put together local rides, beer meets, tech days, ETC!!! Put the beer down, drop the remote and get your asses motivating For the geographically challenged, I am calling Central Texas north of Austin and south of DFW. I am west of Waco. Now sound off if you have a pair or at least have the desire to knock the dust off that bike

When we hit a thousand, everybody has to buy me a round!!!(especially Dahveed)

Know your area well been in Granbury twice this week and about to head there now! Do you hang out on TWT also? I think we may have met. I used to ride a black Vstrom. Love those roads up there too

Ghostrider, I think we meet outside a Mexican food joint in Gatesville about a year ago. I was on my Transalp at the time.

I need to do more exploring north of Austin. I seem to always head west and south.

Yes we did, I notice you have been getting around too. I saw you were in Vicksburg when I was in Memphis a while back. I wonder if that ol Transalp can follow my lowly beemer I think that XR650 last night gained a new appreciation for it, we were both soaked my smiling ear to ear. Speaking of which the said Canuck named Mike needs to call me back so we can set up some more riding this weekend. I know he was staying around Valley Mills and has Trex panniers on his XR. He said he got on ADV but do not recall his screen name.

Where y'all goin on Sunday (tomorrow)? I am in DFW and might ride. Kinda late notice but if there is a group starting within a reasonable distance i'll join. 250-350 mile days are the norm for me on weekends, just did a 300 mile loop to PK and back trying to find new unpaved roads.

If nothing is happening keep me on the list for other weekends, winter is a fine time to ride!

At this point it is looking like a wash I put new tires on for nothing...
i live here and ride the roads on a regular basis beween here and Granbury and west to Lampasas/ Goldtwaithe area...I will try to keep the thread alive so we can get something going. The Canuck I met thurs called asking to park at my place but he never met up with me Hope he is ok. He never called and I waited for almost an hour. I will probably go knock he silicone off my tires tomorrow for the hell of it

Hey, bro. There be a few of us out here. ;) I'll try to watch the thread. We ride every week-end . Sometimes I'm on the big ugly jugly GS Adv, sometimes the KiLleR. If it ain't never seen a scrub rag, it's probably mine.

Heck, I may go Sunday if it's early. Leave word where you're heading. Can't ride long. Honey-do's are piling up.

MY internet must have messed up yesterday. I missed several PMs. I know about the fog had several close encounters this morning heading to Meridian. New tires and wet pavement makes for some squirelly ridin! Well the mission is to keep the thread alive so we can keep up. BTW Slowold guy, my GSA is a stranger to scrubrag too
