    Mr2mch nailed it, Mesquite Creek shows to be CR19 on my map through Kings Ranch off of 3170 and 190. We also traveled CR22 south of 2808 until it crossed into Burnet cty. and became 222-great road but too short. The map showed a deadend but I knew from years ago that it hooked over to 2857-so sad they paved that part. We also reconed 221 looking for the alleged offroad riding area to no avail. No trace.

    My wife converted to a KIndle and loves the thing. Thought she would miss books and she was wrong. Now she is into using her I-pad to read also. Teknologeee....

    On another note, we were just in Austin for my wife's brothers funeral and one of the Police Escorts was riding a new GS. That was cool. Helped lighten a dark day. The Police completely closed off I-35 while we proceeded to the Texas State Cemetary. He was an Austin Big-Wig.

    Sorry for your loss.

    I've got an iPad and I like it. I'm trying to change over some subscriptions from print to electronic, but I am finding that magazine and newspaper publishers are very slow to accept change. The WSJ is one that is very frustrating to do business with. :baldy

    Coming off FM 2657 it's CR 220 that gets you to Briggs Road. That's why I was wondering.

    Yup. Well, tire wear is the only similarity I see. Sheesh.

    Anyone considering a Tenere now...I'm impressed. He rode that like a small dirt bike. I think that was a tire shop he pulled up to at the end...:deal

    Yeah, I've been thinking of the Tenere lately. I'm impressed with Yamaha's build quality and like the lengthy service intervals. The only weakness is the fuel load. It would be nice to have a 300 mile range. But I guess that why they make Rotopaxes.

    The reviews I've read say the ground clearance is less than the GS Adventure and it's heavier than the GSA but that the CG was designed to be lower. Now whether that was throughout the entire engineering process or simply a function of less clearance I dunno.

    It does look like the front end comes up pretty easy from the video.

    I noticed the stairs were getting close to the skid plate in the video. However, with a big bike like that (or the GSA), I'm not planning on getting into the nasty stuff too often. Plus if you're not hitting the bash plate some, it seems like a waste of time. :lol3

    I'm not buying anything now, but I'll look more into it before I do buy a new advtouring bike.
