Road Trippin'

What better way to bring in Spring time than with a Motorcycle trip???

That's what we did..4 bikes total..we hit the road on Thursday and came home on Sunday...



Here is our first night's stay:



This old Rail Road Hotel is one of the last ones in the state..In Llano Texas. We had a great time with the caretaker, but the other guests were a bit rude about 4am, slammin' doors and yelling at each other in the hall after having a few toddys on the porch..we were about ready to bite off their heads..but they seemed to duck into their rooms when Hub would put his head out...What's with people now a days?? No one has any respect for others..We had one lady gripe at us for taking up 2 parking places at another motel, on another night. We legally can take a spot of each bike if we want to..If she'd been nice about it, we might have squeezed them all into one. But she was rude and demanding. Needless to say we didn't budge and she complained but they couldn't do anything about it..so she had to park and WALK a few more feet to her room...tuffstuff...







We rode in and out of rain the whole day on Friday...as we headed to Camp Wood.







This stop is at Enchanted Rock. A ginormous piece of pink granite. The Indians used it as a scared place where the earth would tell them secrets. We stopped closer to the entrance, but had to stop here and get the full aspect of the size of this stone upheaval...



What's a Hill Country trip without stopping at Luckenbauch??


No Willie or Waylon ghost just a bunch of tourist on Harleys and other assorted modes of transportation...





That me at #2 Spot..hub took this photo..He's the Road Captain~ We were outside of Bracketteville Texas on some FM that is an amazing ride, hills, twisties, curves, cattle guards and wildlife..





Road Warriors!!




We saw bluebonnets, but it was not as full as I've seen it in the past. The rains were not enough this year to yield an great showing..






We'll end this story here..at the potties in Luckenbauch...We logged in almost 1,100 miles those 4 days..that's just a drop in the bucket for the rest of the riding season...Hope you enjoyed the trip!!


later,t
