I just want to vouch for the beauty of this part of Texas. We spent a week at Garner State Park every summer when I was a kid. We covered every inch of that country at some point and go back every chance we get.

Great ride. We ran this route @ the 2009 SSR rally and again in 2015. I would suggest one route deviation - on the return route on US 83 take RR 39 to pickup the 'Boot Fence' then to Hunt, Ingram, & Kerrville.

RR39 is a great rd too. I had that in the original route but with the distances, speed and stops after the sisters, that may make for a very long tiring day. I wanted to make the last leg an easier return drive back to the Inn. This whole run is 240 mi. mostly hills, curves, switchbacks both hands on the wheel driving, it wears you out.
We could make this an option for the return for those that want to do it.
We can refine the run as I get more valuable feedback like this from others that have been there.

Been over those roads lots & lots of times on the Harley. September much better for us than June. Besides, by September, all the little brats, er, ah, I mean, "darlings" are back in school. >:)
