Re: Texas

The GF and I like to book B&B's around Fredericksburg or Canyon Lake Texas. We like the country, but it's not far from San Antonio if you want some nightlife. Check out Gruene if you like the music scene, multiple bands playing all the time in a very small community.

Do some research and hit the hills. Lots of twisties and beautiful rugged scenery.

Have fun,

Dave.

In the last 2 years...
'08 R1200GS---Loved it!!!
'01 H-D Ultra Classic---Hated it!!! (aka. the infernal noise making machine)
'02 K1200LT(black)---Even my GF is jealous of this one.

Re: Texas

Everyone knows that's where all the Texas hillbillies live. I believe their governor came from that area.

Re: Texas

east boundry 281; west boundry just west of 83; north boundry 190; south boundry 90; more or less; it is not that there are hills, but due to errosion over a long time, there are valleys, which equals up and down and curves. come on over we will have lunch.
