922 Miles - 3 days
Last year we headed down to the Hill country for the holiday weekend. Read about last years trip here. So this year we decided that we would do that again. Jamie got tickets again to the Cowboy game on Thanksgiving, we are not fans of the boys (Go Broncos) but my brother and his wife are, so we decided to take them. We had a wonderful time. We tailgated, drank beer and just enjoyed the day. Oh yeah, the weather was awesome. It had to be 75-78 degrees, just a great day!
The Cowboys won and we actually left early as the game was a blow out. Carrie Underwood sang at the half. Tony Romo looked great and the Bucs.. well not so much, they suck! You can see all of the pictures from the game here. Remember to click on the pictures to see the full size versions.
We got up and met Rob at the Race Trac on Legacy and 75 at 8:45AM on Friday morning. We filled the bikes up and headed over to Cafe Brazil for breakfast. The bikes looked great loaded down. The new soft bags sat well on the Strom and they rode like a dream. We were so surprised at how much the bags could take. They were a very good investment. They look great as well. See for youself.
We headed out of town around 10AM. We shot down 75 to 35 (That is always a fun ride.. NOT!) We jumped off on 67 and headed towards Stephenville. We headed towards Comanche and the the trip begun, as we jumped on 16. I love this road, it is a nice ride and you can see the terrian change from the boring Northern Texas landscape, to the nice rolling hills of the hill country. We made it to Kerrville around 5:30PM. We stayed at the YO Resort, and I will have to say that we will be looking for new accomadations the next time we are down there. The room was not ready when we arrived, the staff was rude and then dinner was a complete joke, The place was under staffed and we waited 55 minutes for a table. Memo to the YO. If your hotel is booked solid (The ladies words behind the desk) why in the hell would you not have enough staff to take care of things? We were very disappointed and like I said we will not stay there again.
We Headed ack to Dallas on Sunday. We stoped for BBQ at Coopers on our way back. The rest of the day was some of the best riding. It was nice out and deep down, we know that the great weather will not last all winter long. I was just enjoying the ride as they say. You can see all of the pictures here.
