    Houston Ride Trip Report

    Maybe you Austin guys need to meet up in Houston


    Started out the day at Starbucks of I-10 in Katy at 9AM. Was joined by a coworker on a Vulcan 800, then by crazyaussie, and finally by a friend on a Buell Firebolt. After stopping for the Buell to top off itís tank and get a few pictures we headed out.





    The route took us out I-10 west toward Seally, where we jumped on 36 through Bellville and Brenham, then onto Highway 6 into Navasota. We stopped here to have a brief meeting about the upcoming road, FM 3090. Houston may be flat, and my not have the best roads for motorcycling, but this is the exception. Itís 18 miles of fun. So during the discussion of the upcoming road the camera came out for a few more pics













    After a couple runs through the wooded twists and turns and one of us hitting the reserve we headed out for fuel, both for the bikes and ourselves.





    We then headed out Highway 30 into the Sam Houston National Forrest. Smooth roads and some refuge from the sun beating down on us. We stopped in New Waverly for a water break and discuss the ending of the ride. Our lead (Vulcan) was breaking off on the north side of Houston, while the remaining riders had to go through to parts further south west. Ofcourse more pics were taken





    We then proceded down Highway 150 which intersected 59. The rain held off until everyone was nearly to their homes. We stopped one last time in Houston to top off the tank and begin conspiring on another ride. So until then thanks for the read, if you want to see all the pics go to http://gallery.restel.com/album226 . The map and directions for the trip can be found at http://borecam.restel.com/rides/Sunday.htm

    There is video of the 3090 segment at http://fbcstuff.com/3090a.wmv and and http://fbcstuff.com/3090b.wmv (This one has NWS music)

    Looks awsome, and I love the looks of the Buell. That link for all the pics did not work for me though.

              We couldn't have asked for a better day to ride...it was about the first day in two weeks where the sun actually came out.

              The Austin gang has definitely got to meet up with us for a ride. We gotta get rollin' though, I leave Katy in 4 weeks to go back to school in Ohio. After that I'll be having Kat withdrawals. The bikes gotta stay home .

              Thanks ablank for arranging the ride, I had a great time and am eager for another trip. Looking forward to seeing the video up...after you edit my little running out of gas bit .
