    Hey everyone. I am back in NY as of yesterday. I want to thank all the inmates who helped out and gave suggestions :clap

    I was able to visit many of the places suggested and got some great riding in the Hill Country. Unfortunately my budget only allowed for a 2-day bike rental, but I wish i could have done much more. But that leaves next time, and I will save all these items that i didnt do this trip.

    I wish I could have met some of you in North Austin for that meetup thursday, but I had already returned the bike and would not have wanted to show up in a cage.

    If any of you are ever in the NYC area I would love to help out with things to do/see.

    Thanks again!

    Reviving this thread a bit...

    90% chance I'll be down there in April for the MotoGP race; any recommendations on lodging? Looking at two options - lodging close to the track, and lodging close (stumbling distance) to an abundance of tomfoolery. Of course, tomfoolery near the track is even better.

    The area near the track is - how would you say, across the tracks, so to speak. Beer joints and park n fights mostly. Best bet for semi-refined tomfollery is to stay in Austin. The best bet for track access is Bastrop or one of the other towns to the east. I live east of the track and the 50 mile drive to the F1 Race took about 65 minutes door to gate, including the bus ride from lot Q. I doubt that moto gp will draw the 265k people who attended the three days of F1 races, but they are not likely to have the army of school busses available either.

    From Bastrop take Hwy21 to FM812. Follow the signs to Elroy, about 20 miles.
