Cool Official Hill Country Trip - July 20-22 - Three Sisters Loop

I just posted this on my local forum and wanted to extend the invite to you folks. Don't mind the "Houston" details as it won't apply to most of you....

Who: Intermediate-Experienced riders

When: Fri-Sun July 20-22

Where: Houston to Kerrville, Tx...and beyond

Route: The best roads in Texas
I will lead as I am very familiar with the roads.

Basic details: Prep bikes to be put on trailers Thurs. night.
Trailering bikes Fri. mid-afternoon or ASAP. Don't want to leave too late.
Arrive Fri. night, set up tents and get rest!
Meet early morning, eat breakfast, gas up, and ride all day Saturday (w/lunch break, photo ops, and possibly river swims)
Ride 1/2 day or more Sunday depending on group consensus.
Drive back Sunday.
I have a truck that seats 6, also has a camper top. I plan on borrowing a trailer, or renting one if it comes down to it.

Advanced Details: I plan to stay at "On the River RV park and Campground"
Check out the site for yourself, I think it would be fun and very affordable to stay there and camp.
They have a pool, and bathrooms with showers. Por-A-Cans are located near the camp sites as well.
It would be best to know how many people would be interested in camping so I can make the reservations sooner than later....

I personally have my own camping gear. Tent, cot, and sleeping bag.
Tent's can be bought at Academy for as low as $20.
You can sleep on a cot, air mattress, or whatever you prefer.

If folks don't have camping gear already or don't want to get any, there are hotels and resorts available in the area for you to stay at.
Obviously, we will have a morning meet spot for the ride Saturday in that case.

If anyone else has recommendations on places to stay I am open.

Minimum Gear Requirements: Full face helmet, armored moto jacket, gloves, long pants, and boots. HIGHLY recommended that you wear knee pads and or lower body armor suit if you will be riding in jeans.
BRING LICENSE, and current insurance. ICE cards are a good idea too.

Bike requirements: Most importantly, make sure your bike is properly maintained and functioning with no issues. Last thing we want is to all be standing on the side of the road in the heat. Make sure your tires are in good shape with plenty of center tread. These roads can eat through tires....
I'll bring some basic tools along with my motorcycle stands just in case.

This is a lot of information to cover and I'm sure I missed a few things...I will reserve the next two posts to include any updates and or further explanations of details to help keep the information together.

Saturday's forecast predicts highs of 93* w/0% precip and SE winds at 10mph....

Not bad, I rode 310 miles in the 93* heat last weekend and I did just fine. It got a bit hot when I would stop and look at my phones GPS for a few minutes, but that was the only hot part of my ride....If you guys can pull off these dates (July20-22) I would strongly consider joining us for a great time through some of the best roads in Texas!

Would be cool to have some of you guys join us....

BADNCO, you're more than welcome to join, as I've read you ride the sisters quite often....

AND FWIW, I want to set up a ZX-10R.net ride out there in the fall when the weather is cooler...There will also be more of an advanced notice on the dates...
