    Any ADVriders around central Texas interested in gathering at the Regency Suspension Bridge for a picture? Maybe we could make the cover of the BMW Owner News or Texmoto. We tried this a couple of years ago on the way to San Antonio to see Benka's slide presentation and it rained. Didn't make for the best photo, but the BBQ at the Cherokee Crossing in San Saba was still good and a bargain at $5.95 for all you can eat.

    It's NW of San Saba just off of Ranch Road 500 on CR ???. My Roads of Texas says CR 114 but I think they renumberd the County Roads couple of years ago and I can't remember the new number. It crosses the Colorado River.

    I'm in, too, if it's after Texas Water Safari.

    Great bridge, great views, great roads. My buddy took pics of me riding his R11GS and his R69 across. One of my favorite parts of Texas. Nicer when it's not summer.

    I think you can tell from Randy's picture that the road surface of the bridge is wood. Suspension is bundled--not twisted--iron wires. Fascinating structure. And weird, from the south, you go UPhill to the bridge.

    Hey, Gary, missed you in Blanco. I ate French toast and watched the Harley's. Jeez, Austin et environs were crawlin' with'em. Couldn't believe all the roadkill on Sunday (just coincidence) but with the bizarre traffic, made for kind of a grisly, almost depressing ride.

    When ya doin' this? Sometime in the fall when it gets a little cooler? Got commitments for the Smokies in June and the Rockies in July so I can't be there in early summer.

    Yeeha!
