This Ride Report was first written in February 2018 but never published to date. This is a record of my 4 days trip to Big Bend Area in West Texas as seen by a European Rider. Here it goes : "February 2018 : For the last 6 years I have been working in the US and have been always surprised by the gigantism and the beauty of Natural US Wonderland. Long story short, I had been visiting Big Bend with family 4 years ago and was amazed by the wonderful views and roads for motorcycling. I was thinking : Kids in University, my wife visiting her elder parents, a long week-end ahead with days-off and a rain forecast in Gulf Coast. Take all those elements together and it sounds like all the star are aligned and I should do this Trip West to Big Bend. So let's go ! First of all, lets go back to the decision process for this trip : I Was watching the weather forecast on the internet last Tuesday for next Week end ride (I usually ride on Week End with Houston Sport Touring Motorcycle Group, a vey nice meetup group leaded and organized by Bruce) and it was not looking good. Out of curiosity I checked Big Bend weather forecast. Hum Hum, Not bad ! On Wednesday I submit the idea to my boss / wife. I Did not get approval nor denial so I guess it is a Yes (at least in my mind ! )Thursday : checking again the weather forecast. Should I ? should I not go ? I do not know if we will be in the US for much longer in the future and my working visa expires in October, with possible extension to next march so go for it my Young Padawan.
