Texas Hill Country 05/07/13



Met 4 other guys this morning for a ride to the Hill Country. Started off in south Austin and made our way to Johnson City via Fitzhugh Rd. From there we made it to Stonewall where we had lunch at Lindig's Cafe. Meandered over to Blanco then back to south Austin. All in all I ticked off just over 210 miles. Had my Contour helmet cam running in picture mode, shooting every 5 seconds. Also brought my DSLR with me for better pics when not riding. The weather was fantastic, got to the mid-80's in the afternoon and just a few cars on the road. Couldn't ask for anything better.

Leader: Fabian on an 07 Honda CBR1000RR
Edward: Ducati 1098S
George: Suzuki SV650S
Peter: Honda 919
Me: 08 BMW K12GT

First stop in Johnson City

An older guy shows up on a 1966 BMW 600cc

Motoring along and there's a carcass on the right side of the road (where the dark mark is on the road) along with 4 buzzards. As Peter is riding by two of them take flight, one of them almost hitting him! Came within inches. In this zoomed in pic you can see the darned thing right next to him, can see how big they are

Just a normal road without cars, that's how most of the day was

Our last stop in south Austin before heading our separate ways

And finally my attempt at photographic brilliance (the ASR sticker is the "Austin Sportbike Riders" group on Meetup.com, which we are all members of and set up this ride through)
