Correct. And always a 1200cc engine.
I like reading any R.R. with Tenere's in it.
And in case any of you wish to learn more about Big Bend and or my latest wanderings in Texas, check the link below.
Doh!...that makes sense. Thanks.
Out and about today. Found a moto cross track but decided not to take S10 there...
Normally I head northwest of New Braunfels but today went south and played around New Berlin and LaVernia. Definitely not as hilly but still found some decent backroads to enjoy.
Big day today. Bought an annual Texas state park pass; like to support and use the parks.
And brought a picnic lunch.
Afterwards, rode in the general area of LBJ ranch. Truly a beautiful day
Okay, I'm going to add some different content to this thread. Last weekend I took my lady friend, T, to Smithville so we could ride our RAD ebikes from Buescher State Park along park road 1C to Bastrop State Park and back. So the first thing I did was to reserve us a room at the Katy House in Smithville, yes, I enjoy being pampered and Tiffany, the owner along with her husband, certainly did not disappoint. Highly recommend this place.
A big house so easy to social distance and or just plain relax.
After a wild night of walking the streets of Smithville, a lot of restored homes in the historic district part of town, along with an enjoyable dinner at Honey's Pizza, we hit the sack and had a restful night. In the morning Tiffany fed a darn good breakfast so we had plenty of energy to start our day. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day you know...
Afterwards, we drove to Buescher State Park, and unloaded the RAD's to begin the ride to Bastrop State Park. A park ranger stopped by and mentioned that we needed ape handlebars... must have been a Harley owner
The following are pictures from the route which was extremely light on car traffic, only had two vehicles pass us on the return leg, so a relatively safe road to ride.
Stopped at an overlook
The section between the parks had some residential areas along with some open areas which along with sections of hills. Note: This would be a serious ride on a non power assist bike due to the hills in my opinion. As it was we felt as if we recieved a good workout.
Had a picnic lunch in Bastrop.
And the park staff made sure we had music to sing to while washing our hands
So getting to Bastrop took us approximately an hour and a half and the return was a bit quicker with a few less stops. Total mileage was approximately 27 1/2 miles. My RAD had two of five bars of battery power remaining and T's had three; I used more pedal assist since I was carrying our lunch. A good day.
I know this is not the ebike thread, but how about a few words on the bikes. I have been thinking about getting a couple for the motorhome. The white one looks like a folder. Is that correct? What class did you get? My wife and I rented a pair in Hill City SD this summer and rode part of the Michelson Trail. Lots of fun! TIA.
Edit: Oops, looks like their both folders.
The bikes are RAD Mini’s. And both are foldable which was a requirement for me since I like carrying them inside the car. The black one was the first one bought and is a little over a year old with almost 700 miles. Both have been used to ride the Washington DC monuments, Valley Forge, Gettysburg Battlefield auto tour, etc. Great traveling companions
I'm in the wrong part of Texas
frizzen, not necessarily. That's the unique thing about TX ain't it.
Got back out on the S10 today for a little ride toward Dripping Springs.
Even found a little rest area which is always appreciated.
On the way home and a little east of Blanco found a nursery with a lot of color.
Anybody have pictures of Bastrop State Park taken before the 2011 forest fire?
