    December ride in Texas Hill Country

    Greetings ladies. I ride a 650gs....going on 4 years now I guess. I started by commuting to work then became "bitten" by the cross country riding bug. I am planning a ride to Texas, south of Austin, north of San Antonio, near Canyon Lake. I plan to truck and trailer my bike to Arkansas then ride to Texas. The trip will be over Christmas week. I have 2 weeks off so the dates are not firm. Is anyone interested? I live in South Bend Indiana and can trailer 2 bikes.

    Shari, you might try posting this in the appropriate regional forum as well. Good luck and have a great ride.

    Sound tempting Shari. I usually store my bike by the 1st of December though. Hope you find someone to ride with. There are more and more women on this forum so the chances are good. How about it ladies? Anyone interested?

    I'm tempted . . .

    but I'm not sure if I can make it. I do have a trailer to get out of town when/if we are snowed in. Keep us posted, if the ride is a go.

    Welcome to Texas!

    Stupid me but man, that was a bummer!

    Still would like to make it back to Austin.
