    I've crossed this one a few times, it is slick and tricky with the slight turn.

    Nice story. I live in Kerrville, but seldom have the time to ride it. Thanks for letting me live vicariously through your story. We got a place north of Kv to stay if ever need. 7 bdroom farm house.

    Imizell, thank you for the offer. Our area, I'm in New Braunfels, has good riding so you need to make time to get our and about.

    Funny, I worked a season as the chef at a hunting ranch on that road between Laredo and Eagle Pass. 70 mile round trip for groceries :) I recognize a lot of those Hill Country roads from my time in Austin. You should consider hooking with the Texas Adventure Riders Association for their monthly group rides in Austin and San Antonio. A solid bunch of guys and gals to explore dirt roads with.

    I never understood how a school as prestigious as the University of Texas would pick a "longhorn" as its mascot until I rode Hill Country the first time. That is one impressive and intimidating animal. I wouldn't want any part of the end of those horns.....

    Thanks for the great trip report and pictures. I'm inspired to get down to Texas before it gets hot to experience this area. I've done a little traveling in the hill country by cage and always yearned to be on a bike. Thanks!
