    Got out today for a little exploring north of Canyon Lake. Not a high mileage day since at times I was riding rather slow. Quality, not quantity, miles

    I know this place! Great ride but sadly the only dirt in the immediate area.

    Later I stopped to chat with some locals but they just wanted to talk about how we should eat more chicken...

    Turned on the house heat yesterday and today got out the gerbings heated jacket liner for an afternoon ride. The words on the water tower said I was in the heart of Texas but I doubt it. Beautiful day :-)

    Looks like it was more along the lines of the A-hole of Texas there.

    Yesterday I, on the left, rode a Yamaha, pedal kind, at McAllister park in San Antonio. My riding buddy owns a Triumph 900 Tiger but pedals too.

    Today I made a run to Fredericksburg to pick up a few items and also learned about Easter Fires. I never knew...

    I bet most of you didn’t know Texas has a ski lift. I took my Yamaha ebike to Spyder Mountain near Burnett for my first downhill biking experience. A good time:lol3

    Hmmm. Yes, almost. Mine is more gold color or, according to Subaru Tungsten, his is silver. Also, mine is the normally aspirated 2.5 and his is the 2.4 turbo. My second Subie and his sixth.:rayof

    Any recommendations for Houston to Fort Worth? Starting next Tuesday, I just have to end up in Minnesota by Saturday night, and am trying to branch out/away from I35!
