Nancy's neighbor,Rollo,owns a Honda VTX 1800 motorcycle, and he offered me the opportunity to ride it while we were at Nancy's, and I took him up on his offer.
On Saturday the 17th.I took a 200 mile round trip from Georgetown west on Hwy 29.I went through the towns of Bertram,Burnet,Buchanan Dam and the dam itself, and Llano. At Llano I headed south on Hwy. 16 and ended up in Fredricksburg which was my destination.
Highway 16 from Llano to Fredricksburg is a smooth, wide, and sometimes twisty road with a speed limit of 70 MPH. In other words, a perfect motorcycle road.And the fields were full of blue bonnets. Just about everywhere you went every field was covered with bluebonnets.
I stopped in Fredericksburg for lunch. This town is a tourist trap, kind of like Leavenworth in Washington. It was crowded, and I had trouble finding a restaurant where I didn't have to wait for more than a hour.I had a cheeseburger and fries, and went back the was I came. I thought about going to Lukenbach, but with the spring break crowds I decided against it.
On the 21st. I started out to meet some local SCRC members for breakfast. I got on I-35 going south, but some how I missed my exit.By the time I figured out that I couldn't make the breakfast I was almost in downtown Austin, so I just kept going.I finally stopped in San Marcos for coffee and gas, and I headed back north from there. I got off of the freeway once for lunch , and I got lost for about half an hour. I finally found I-35 and made it back to Georgetown OK.
